Harpers Field Upgrade - have you say

Tea Tree Gully Council has released the draft master plan for the Harpers Field upgrade.  You can read it here:

https://haveyoursay.cttg.sa.gov.au/harpers

You will see that there are two new buildings proposed; one for the Brumbies and Kookaburras to share, and one for the community.  The lighting and car parking will be improved, and a play area will be constructed in Stage 2 .  The car parking in particular is important for both clubs as there are often cars parked on One Tree Hill Road during busy game days.

Most importantly for the Golden Grove Cricket Club, the draft plan includes a cricket pitch on the top oval which will allow us to bring our Third and Fourth XI, and additional junior teams to Harpers Field.  Not only will this allow us to have more teams playing at our home ground creating more of a club feeling, our opportunities for fund raising (which will allow us to continue to improve our facilities and equipment) will also improve.  Our valuable volunteers will benefit as the number of grounds and facilities they have to organise and maintain will reduce.

We encourage all Brumbies players, officials and supporters to register and have your say by 27 April 2022 at the following link:

COVID Marshals

The Club is required to have at least one COVID Marshal on site whenever we open the Clubrooms during our season.  To make this happen, we encourage every member and supporter of the Club (who is 18 or older) to complete the COVID Marshal training course. It is a free online course that takes about 30 minutes.

Visit https://www.covid-19.sa.gov.au/recovery/covid-marshals to complete the course.  You are required to email a copy of your certificate to grum@goldengrovecc.asn.au to be included in the Club records.  You will also need to keep a copy of the cerificate on your phone to be produced upon request if you are acting as the Club's COVID Marshal.  You can find a copy of the Club's COVID Safe Plan on ther Policies page of the Club web site.

The more people we have who have been trained as a COVID Marshal, the easier it will be for the Club to operate as normally as possible.

2020/21 Junior Registration Now Open

 

Click here to register for Junior cricket (U10, U12, U14, U16 & U18) at Golden Grove this season.

 

It is a Cricket Australia requirement that all junior registrations are now completed via the MyCricket website.  Upon registering, all players are required to pay a $5 insurance levy that is separate to the Club’s membership fees.

The Committee will present proposed fees to the Annual General Meeting in August 2020 for approval.  These fees will be advertised as soon as possible.  Payment can be made into the Club’s account or at the Club.  At least one Junior Registration day will be held prior to the season commencing where you will have the opportunity to pay membership fees and purchase Club apparel.

The Club will again accept Sports Vouchers (now valued at $100 as at 3 July 2020).  Visit the Sports Vouchers website to obtain a copy of the voucher.  This voucher is to be submitted to the Club when paying you membership fees or can be emailed to sportsvoucher@goldengrovecc.asn.au Do not use your Sports Voucher to pay the insurance fee.

If you have any questions, please visit our Contact Us page of our website where you will find some frequently asked questions.  If you have further questions, please contact the applicable Committee member.

Senior Statistics - updated to include hard wicket matches

The Senior stats have (mostly) been updated to include the records I have from the Club's hard wicket days.  Unfortunately, I don't have all of the books so they are not complete.  If you have any floating around (Junior or Senior) please let me know and I will arrange to come pick them up.  I haven't completed matches/days played yet or included the hard wicket stats into the complete stats for past and present players.  That will happen when it happens.  I will also compile the stats I have for Junior matches that aren't on MyCricket when I get time.

With the addition of the available hard wicket stats, we now have the first Brumbies player to pass 5,000 Senior runs - congratulations Ben Lynch (5,059). 

The following people have also passed batting milestones:
