From Rick and Grum

Thanks to everyone who came out the Junior Presentation Evening last Friday.  We were very pleased with the way that it went, but acknowledge that there are some things that can be done better in future.  Thanks to people who have provided feedback; the Committee will discuss this in the lead-up to the next presentation evening.

We would like to thank the following people who gave up their time to make it such a success:

Non-financial Players

There are a small number of players who have not paid their fees for the 2014/15 season. The Committee met last night and decided that any players with fees outstanding will not be eligible for trophies at the Junior or Senior Presentation.

Sports Vouchers

The Committee is pleased to announce that we are taking steps to make cricket more affordable for current and potential members by signing up to the Office for Recreation and Sport's Sports Vouchers program.

The following comes directly from the Sports Vouchers web site:

Under 11 Gold T20 Grand Final

The Mad Murray's Palmworld Under 11 Gold team will play Eastern Suburbs Green in the Under 11 T20 Grand Final at Harper's Field on 13 March (5pm).  The Club will be open and a BBQ will be available.  It would be great to see as many people out there as possible to support the lads.

Senior & Under 17 Presentation

Junior Presentation - Friday 27 March

Invitation from our Senior Coach

Our Senior Coach, Jamie Salter, would like to invite all players and officials to join him next Thursday the 5th of March 2015 (after selections) to talk cricket.  This will be an informal chat to discuss the season just gone, identify what worked well and what didn't over a whole range of topics, and to get your thoughts and ideas as we start planning for the next season.

T20 / Training Shirts

T20 Shirt

Several people have asked me to order them one of the training shirts.  Please let me know in the next week if you would like to order one too.  I’m not sure of the price as they will become cheaper as we order more.

If you would like one, please let me know:

Under 15 SAMCA Cup

Congratulations to Adam Blundell and Brad Harris who were part of the victorious ATCA North team in the Under 15 SAMCA Cup played recently. The lads played in every game and were rewarded for an excellent season so far.

Special mention to Brad who finally broke through and his maiden century against Modbury on Sunday.Adam Blundell & Brad Harris - U15 ATCA North winners of SAMCA Cup 2015

Quiz Night 28 February 2015

The Golden Grove Cricket Club Quiz Night will be held on Saturday 28 February from 7:30pm at Harper's Field.

Darryl Angel and Jason Nisbet are in charge of the night this season with the Fat Man in the Hat taking his customary spot behind the microphone. 

Get your table of 6 people together - just $5 per head. ALL WELCOME.

D Grade Withdrawn From ATCA

The Committee has made the decision to withdraw the D Grade from the competition as we do not have enough committed players. The decision has been made to ease the burden on the Selectors who try hard every week to fill the team.

Committed, financial players will be considered first when selecting the A, B and C Grades.
