Nunawading Annual General Meeting – next Tuesday

APOLOGIES FOR ANY CROSS-POSTING

Hi NCC Junior Families,

The Nunawading Cricket Club’s Annual General Meeting is scheduled for Tuesday 30th April at 7:30pm. Please refer to the notice below that has been issued from our secretary Andrew (Blewey) Siebel.

I strongly encourage families to attend. We are really looking for (needing) some new Junior Families to step up – to keep the club moving forward. Any contribution you can make – whatever your interest, professional background, passion – can be incorporated into a role – that will not take up too much time – but will honestly give you a great deal of satisfaction.

May I also suggest that some of our older Juniors consider this – it looks great on a resume.

Cheers,
Rob

Hi NCC community,

The NCC committee extends an invitation to all financial & life members to attend the 2019 NCC Annual General Meeting (AGM) held at the clubrooms, starting at 7:30pm sharp on Tuesday 30th April. This will be immediately followed by a regular meeting with the new committee.

This is your opportunity to put your hand up to be more than just a player or member. You all have the opportunity to shape the club, decide on which way we move forward in these challenging times where many clubs are struggling to survive.

In saying that we want people who are committed to the club and its future, not just involved. Therefore, our slogan for 2019/20 is #Committed2Nuna.

"committed"

adjective

1. in or denoting a long-term emotional relationship

You see it every time you walk into the Nuna rooms…Max, Paddy, Dave & Paul behind the bar, Cowelly welcoming new faces to the club or recounting Nuna’s amazing history, JP & Rob Nash in the kitchen, on the BBQ or making sure our Juniors feel part of this great club, Scotty O handing out scorebooks and balls for the weekend’s game, Coach Rob & Derek sitting in front of the laptop trying to fill those last few spots for Saturday, Roger collecting subs & ensuring Cowelly doesn’t spend all of our money, Kev still giving back to the club despite hanging up the "boots", Smudge & Claire in their Milo apparel sorting out the next generation of Nuna cricketers, Greg Clark & Gautam ensuring that MVP votes are done…the list goes on.

WHY NOT PUT YOUR NAME ON THIS LIST?

You can start to show that you are #Committed2Nuna by attending the club AGM next Tuesday and if you feel as though you can contribute in a positive way, put your hand up to be on the committee. Nominations for all executive (Officers of the Club) members and general committee positions will be accepted on the night.

We need new faces put up their hands and bring some fresh ideas to the committee and how the club runs.

All attendees will receive a booklet with an agenda and annual report from Season 2018/19.

Kind regards,

Blewey Siebel

Nunawading Cricket Club – Thanks for a great 2018/2019 season

Hi everyone – I hope everyone enjoyed the Nunawading Cricket Club Junior Presentation Night – just on two weeks ago. It certainly was a great way to celebrate the many achievements of the season – and to see our families together – and most importantly our children having fun.

Association Junior Presentation
Tonight was the Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association (BHRDCA) Junior Presentation Night. The following Nunawading Cricketers were acknowledged:

· U18 Premiers – Nunawading Cricket Club

· U18 BHRDCA Representative Team Premiers (consisting of Nunawading players, Josh Richardson, Rohan Roy and Cameron Clark)

· U18 BHRDCA Association Bowling award – Cameron Clark

· U14 BHRDCA Representative Team Premiers (consisting of Nunawading player Kaelan Scully)

· Under 12 Girls – BHRDCA Representative Team – Claudia Fatone Shield Bowling award – Eloise Wood

This is a great way to finish the season – and acknowledge some fantastic performances. Congratulations to all. We now have another Premiership flag (and a Representative Shield for 12 months – given that our Nunawading boys were there tonight to collect it)) to add to our club rooms.

Season 2019/2020
Well, it wont be long, before it is cold and wet – and we are all looking forward to some warmer weather again!! You should receive the first information about the 2019/2020 season around late June, early July. Next season, we have already started to plan, with an increased focus on training and specialised coaching for our Juniors (regardless of age). We are also looking to again run a winter program from club coach Rob Ferdinands, so again, please keep an eye out for details (if you think you have missed it, please feel free to contact me).

New Players
Now is the time to start talking to families, friends and players of other sports your children may play. WE WANT MORE PLAYERS to enjoy cricket and community at Nunawading. Regardless of ability or experience, every child will play at Nuna who wants to. Please put the word out – and feel free to pass on my details if they wish to discuss further.

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone – What a great last week it has been for Nunawading Cricket Club.

U18 WIN SEMI FINAL
Our U18 team, won their way into a home Grand Final, with a strong win in their semi final. As Kev (coach) said after the match, no matter what happens during the season, finals are hard to win. This statement was so true, as the opposition put up a great effort, to push our young men all the way. The boys held firm, played great cricket, supported each other – and were able to win. Special thanks to Aidyn Malojer, Max Warburton and James Jessup, who offered to sub field. This willingness to help the club is truly fantastic. Thank you – your offer of assistance was greatly appreciated by all involved.

The boys will play this Thursday and Friday at Bob Saker oval (Mahoneys Reserve) in their Grand Final.

U14 WIN SEMI FINAL
Our U14 team, also won their semi final – by beating the team that finished top of the ladder, undefeated. This is also a magnificent achievement by all involved. This was a true case of doing everything that Scott (coach) had worked with the players on all season, and being focused on ‘team’. It really was great to see the boys get around each other, support each other – and be there for each other, at all times. Boys were asked to do certain jobs – and they all obliged, with fantastic execution.

The boys will play again, this Thursday and Friday at Whitehorse Reserve in Box Hill, in their Grand Final.

The one thing that really stood out for me in both games, was how the boys enjoyed themselves, and represented their club, family and themselves with distinction. We will ensure that this Thursday and Friday we will have a bite to eat. I understand with the 14s playing away, it may be difficult to come back on Thursday night, however you are obviously welcome. On Friday, we will ensure that win or lose, we acknowledge the great achievements of all players, and ensure we thank Coaches, Team Managers and other helpers in the teams. It would be great to have as many families across the club come and watch/support the teams in their Grand Finals.

Season wind up
The season has/is coming to an end. Our U12s, U16s, Fast 9s and Junior Blasters have now all finished. Super 7s have one more match this weekend (with training on Friday). The Girls team play the next to Wednesday nights.

Trivia Night – Thanks
I hope all families who attended the Trivia Night, enjoyed themselves. A massive thanks to the following organisations, who supported us

· Colonial Fruit – Forest Hill Chase

Also, a massive thanks to the following Club members who sourced / donated items for the night:

· Mark Richardson

Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone,

This week is ‘finals week’ for our older Juniors!! Our younger Juniors and Girls team, also continue to play for another week or two.

With this in mind, Friday night will be a great night at Nuna. I strongly encourage our U12 and U16 teams (who have not made finals) to come and support our other teams. Details of where they are playing are listed below. It will be a great night at Mahoneys Reserve, where we will ensure there is plenty of Piccolino Pizza!!!

Finals
Our U18 team, finished top of the ladder, and will host a semi final at Bob Saker Oval on Thursday evening and Friday evening this week. A number of these young men started their Junior cricket at Nunawading – as the first players in the ‘then new’ Junior program (when the Juniors were restarted at Nunawading, after a number of years with no Junior program). 11 years on, they have moved from what was then known as Milo In2Cricket – and are now in their final year of Junior Cricket. Obviously, other young men in this team have joined along the way, and made a significant contribution – both on and off the field. Some of these boys are also bottom age U18, so will have another season of junior cricket to go.

Our U14 team finished 4th, and will play Laburnum on Thursday/Friday evening at Kalang Park. This is a great achievement by the team, as at the start of the season, it looked as though they may only have 8-9 players. We hope the new families to this team, have enjoyed their time at Nuna. A number of these boys in this team won the U12B Grand Final last season at Nuna, so have some finals experience.

We wish both teams all the best – and look forward to hearing how you went on Friday Night. As mentioned above, please come and support these teams on Thursday and Friday evenings!! Everyone is very much welcome!!

Our Junior Blasters will have their final session this Friday, while our Super 7s will be training on Friday as well, as usual. Our Girls and Fast 9s still also have a week or two to go.

Congratulations Lachlan Day
Speaking of U18s, Lachlan Day (one of our U18s – who has also played seniors at Nuna, including in our First XI), has been unable to play in the second half of the season. This however has been due to the fact that he has just completed his 4 week ‘Year 1 Officer Familiarisation Training’ in Canberra. This culminated on the weekend, in the Chief of Defence Force Parade, at the Australian Defence Force Academy in Canberra. Lachlan will now commence a Bachelor of Business Degree, whilst continuing military training for three years, before a final fourth year at the Royal Military College Duntroon – where he will graduate as a Lieutenant in the Australian Army. Last weekend, Lachlan’s family were able to celebrate together, in Canberra, where I am told Lachlan’s Nunawading Cricket Club bag (in fantastic Purple and Gold), was dropped off to him. Lachlan will be playing cricket during winter against the Navy, Airforce and other Universities – where his branded Nuna bag will be there with him!!!

Congratulations Lachlan – we wish you all the best. Nunawading will always be your home, that you can return to whenever you like. I know you will be cheering on the U18s in the finals. It is also great to see – especially for our younger Juniors – to know what can be achieved via hard work and dedication.

Junior Presentation Night
Friday 15 March is Junior Presentation Night. Timings of age groups are listed below. I encourage everyone to be there for dinner. It would be great if families can be present for as much of the night as possible. This always is a great night.

5.45pm Arrive
6.00pm Junior Blaster Presentations
6.15pm Super 7s Presentations
6.30pm Dinner – Pizza and sausages served
7.15pm Season Overview and Dave Cowell Award
7.30pm Fast 9s Presentations
7.40pm U12 Presentations
7.50pm U14 Presentations
8.00pm Girls Team Presentations
8.10pm U16 Presentations

Cricket in 2019/2020 at Nuna
We are still looking for families to assist with helping run the Junior Club next season. To keep the club running, ‘We Need You’!!! – If you have an interest in helping out, please let myself or Dave Cowell (Club President know) – we can certainly ensure whatever role you take on, you will not be having to do too much. Please let us know what you can offer!!!!
