Nunawading Cricket Club – Junior Weekly Update

Hi everyone

This Friday is our Christmas Party – it is one of the best nights of the season. Please come up to our club rooms after Matches/training /Junior Blasters – for Piccolino Pizza, sausages, and special presentations. This is always a great way to end the first half of the season – and the weather tomorrow should be perfect.

Christmas Party
Santa will be attending Junior Blasters and Super 7s between 6.30pm and 7.00pm. As mentioned previously, it is ideal if every family is able to buy a present for their own child, wrap it and clearly named. There will be signed areas in the car park towards our club room (probably in the back of cars), where you can leave your presents. If you have any concerns with this – or are unable to provide a present, please let me know.

Siblings are also able to be part of the fun – so if you wish to do the same for non playing brothers and sisters, that is fine.

Also – very happy for our Fast 9s to also participate.

If you are able to make a dessert, to be shared after pizza, please feel free to do so!!

Nunawading Cricket Club on the MCG
We have two upcoming occasions, where Nunawading Juniors will be on the MCG!!

· 27 December 2018 (Day Two Boxing Day Test) – During Lunch time, some of our Junior Blasters will be entertaining the crowd
· 27 January 2019 (Melbourne Stars v Brisbane Heat) – prior to the match, our Premiership winning Junior Teams from last season (U12 and Girls) – celebrating their premierships.

If you are at the MCG on those days, please keep an eye out for them.

Representative Cricket
After many weeks of trials, the following Nunawading Cricketers will be spending the first two weeks of January playing Representative Cricket:

U18 – Joshua Richardson (BHRDCA)
U18 – Cameron Clark (BHRDCA)
U18 – Rohan Roy (BHRDCA)
U16 – Daniel Castelow (RCA)
U15 – James Jessup (Box Hill Shield)
U15 – Max Warburton (Box Hill Shield)

I am aware that other Nunawading players may still be trying out. Additionally, if I have missed anyone, please let me know (clubs do not get advised – we have to find out)!!

We wish all these players the best and congratulate them on their achievemnts to date.

Bunnings BBQ – Vermont South – Boxing Day
We are still looking for a few more hands for our last Bunnings BBQ for the season on Boxing Day at Vermont South.

Ideally, we need another:

  • 1 person for 10am – 12pm
  • 1 person for 12pm – 2pm
  • 3 people for 2pm – 4pm

Please let me know via return email whether you can give us a couple of hours of your time in between watching the test…we will have ABC grandstand on so you won’t miss a ball.

Big Bash League Memberships
Unfortunately, these have not yet arrived – hopefully they will before Friday.

I have been advised though that emails will be received by families with ‘e tickets’, which your Juniors can use to scan into the grounds (in place of the Membership card). If anyone has any queries, please let me know.

Girls Cricket
Our Stage 3 Girls Team, finished the season in third place – essentially missing the Grand Final by 1 run. This is a great achievement by the Girls. It was also great to see 14 girls play in this team throughout the season.

As mentioned last week, the ‘Summer’ season starts in late January – so we are looking for some new Girls to play cricket (aged 8-17). The season is only 5-6 weeks – so a great way to try cricket if you have not played before. We have had some interest already – so if your daughter or friends want to play cricket – please let me know!!

All ordered apparel has now arrived – with most handed out. If you have ordered apparel, however have not received it, please let me know.
