Welcome to 2014/15 Season

Welcome to season 2014/15 to all returning and new members to Maddington Cricket Club.

The beginning of the season has returned mixed results for the club with our top side squaring the first two one day games with a loss to Kwinana followed up with an impressive win against SJ Blues. Some notable performances over the first couple of games are Aaron 'Goldilocks' Offer scoring 30 against Kwinana and Footo making 50 against SJ Blues in typical cavalier fashion. From a bowling perspective, Lacey Junior, Ejaz, and Rogue have all started the season in impressive fashion taking a couple of wickets each.

We also had a couple of debutants in the top side as well with Goldilocks and Hollywood making their first appearances in the side. Congratulations!

The second side has started with two losses against Kwinana and Canning Districts. In both games our batting has hurt us badly, however, our tail seems to be our guiding light. In game one, Deano and Maxy provided some highlights with scores of 20+, and with the ball, all bowlers pitched in and provided some good support with the pick of them being Deano, Ando, and Mitch. Game two saw the debut of Shin Moor and batted superbly almost carrying his bat for a well compiled 37. Our bowlers toiled hard with the highlights being Deano and Ando again, however, our catching let us down as we dropped their main scorer no fewer than six times.

The second side also had a couple of debutants over the past couple of games with Shin and Jared 'Showbags' Stevens playing their first games. Congratulations!

Our third side was a late inclusion into the SMCA with Hilton Palmyra pulling out of the competition, it opened the door for Maddington to nominate a fifth side, which ended up being this side. Captained by Peter G, the side toiled manfully with Jargs and Peter G scoring 35 and 42 respectively. All the bowlers performed admirably without much success as again, catches cost the side a win, Golum being the leading wicket taker with 2.

Matt Duthie and Mehdi Amiri debuted for the club in this game. Congratulations!

Our two One Day sides, ODC and ODEs had mixed results with ODCs pulling off a good win against Piara Waters and ODEs, containing our u/16s side, lost courageously against Canning Districts. The most notables from the batting in ODCs were Numbers (39), Lois (28), and Gus (21). With the ball, Louis took 4 wickets and John Hall took 2. For ODEs, Captain Ozzie made a well-rounded 27 with able support from Frank Ward (17), George Cornea (18), and Arnie Swart (13). In terms of the bowling, Daniel Courcha took two wickets while Steven 'Juice' Ozanne, Frank Ward, and John Courcha each took 1.

From ODEs saw the club debuts of the following players; George Cornea, Daniel Courcha, Connor Whelan, Jeremy Lidlow, and Juice all making their senior debut with Frank Ward and John Courcha.

On October 2, the cricket club inducted another member to the Legends Club with Ken Baxter accepting his award. During his acceptance speech, Ken compared the club today as it was back when he was a member, coach, and captain, and reminded our current players that with hard work and discipline anything can happen. More details can be seen on our Legends page.

On October 11, the cricket club held a Club Dinner at Brooklands with 40+ members, family, and friends attending. A great night was had by all. We must remember that Brooklands is one of our major sponsors, and with that, we need to ensure that as many members encourage friends and family to frequent them outside of cricket. The cricket club will benefit from this patronage.

Please remember that on October 18 we have our International Beer Pong event at the club after week one of the two day game. For information about this evening, please contact JB, Rabbits, Fabes, or Raff for details.

One final reminder too that membership and match fees are also due and for you to contact Albs for payment or further information. If you are unsure if you have any outstanding fees, please see ALbs as well and he will confirm for you.

That’s enough for now.
Thanks.

OD-C Grand Final

After a stirring win by One Day Cs on Saturday over Armadale at Gwynne Park C, the lads now travel to Alan Edwards Reserve to take on the might of CBC in the Grand Final.

The head to head battle this season between the two sides being 1 win a piece and a rained out draw, the contest could not be more exciting.

Let’s travel to CBC and support our lads as we strive to collect the ODC flag. The more supporters we have, the better for our side as it will emulate a home game for us.

October Update

Well season 2013/14 has begun and it is an exciting time for the cricket club. It is the first time in more than 14 years that we have representation in First Grade, which is an achievement that the entire club should be celebrating, we have five sides, and very close to being able to field a sixth side, and the first month has delivered some exciting and promising results.

First Grade has started the season showing that we will be more than just competitive during our first season in elite company. Had it not been for rain and some odd luck around the traps, we may had had a win or two on the board. As it stands, we have had two close losses, and with some talent yet to come into the side, the season does show some real promise. Some stand out performers so far this season; Raff Raff, Footo, and our openers Snowy and Maxy and provided some exceptional launching pads this season and only once have we been bowled out without completing our overs. This is hopefully a sign of things to come.

Third Grade has started in the same manner as First Grade. We have had some promising starts but have failed to deliver with the bat. It is only early days so far, and promising signs are showing and it is only early doors at present. With players coming in and out of First Grade for the next few games, opportunities will arise for players to stake their claim in both the top two sides to ensure future successes.

The One Day Grades have started very well this season, with not one of the sides actually recording a loss yet. In some cases, it has been a delayed win that has been to our benefit. With One Day As, Cs, and Es all taking their first wins during the first month, the depth of the club is very promising and a sign of bigger and better things to come. Some stand out performers in this division so far have been Migas, O’Brien, and Burton Brothers for One Day As, Mappy, Speedy, Albs, and TD in One Day Cs, with the Michael Brothers, Lois, and Tonka in One Day Es.

On the social side, the Players Tea was a well-attended event and a special thanks goes out to Joy De Castro and Kylie Gibbons for their outstanding support this year so far. It is greatly appreciated by the club. We are also endeavouring to have eats on each Thursday and Saturday night to encourage all players to come back to the club to discuss your cricketing tales. Also, we have started “Chase the Ace”, which has been a terrific endeavour established by Footo. Every Thursday night, $5 entry for two chances to find the Ace. On a Saturday night, for an extra dollar at the bar, you can obtain a further ticket to ‘Chase the Ace’ to improve your chances. You have to be in it to win it!

On a final note, there are two key dates to keep in your calendar…

November 16, the Club is holding an inaugural Club Dinner to be held at Brooklands Tavern, our new sponsor for the 2013/14 season. While the club-house itself is being hired out for a private event, members are encouraged to attend Brooklands for our club dinner to enjoy the atmosphere and music of the night.

December 14, in association with Russell Dower Entertainment and Brooklands Tavern, Maddington Cricket Club are proud to announce our first endeavours into sport entertainment by introducing ‘An Evening with Kerry O’Keefe at Brooklands Tavern’. Tickets will go on sale very shortly at $40 per person. This will include a welcome drink (beer or soft drink) and nibbles throughout the night. Details will be provided as soon as possible, and tickets can be obtained through Todd Nash, or any one of the Social Committee. Tickets will be limited, so first in best dressed.

It has been a promising start to 2013/14, so let’s make all attempts to get down to training when able to ensure the best possible outcomes for our season, regardless of the grade you are selected in.

End of Season Update

Well another season has come and gone. 2012/13 has proven to be one hell of a roller coaster!

At the start of the season, we entered five sides, and by the end the top three sides had made the semi finals, only to fall prior to the grand final. In saying that though, the club achieved many outstanding plaudits along the way, but none so more important than attaining 1st grade status by the end of the season, with 2nd grade winning all of their two day home and away fixtures. So a special congratulations to the lads that had taken part in the 2nd grade side throughout the season. A special thank you needs to also go out to Alec Lacey and Albert Plummer. Alec has proven that the last three years have been well worth the effort and now the next six months for the club will probably be the most difficult six months in terms of getting the current crop of lads in 2nd grade primed for a tilt at staying up in 1st grade for season 2013/14. Here’s hoping for a prolonged stay and hoping that within the next three years we can obtain a 1st grade flag for the wall to go along side the 1989/90 flag.

Albert, Albs, Berty, what can you say of a man that lives and breathes Maddington Cricket Club. He is always there when I need to discuss something with him, and is there if I need a helping hand. From a personal point of view, I am so very happy that he played his 500th game for Maddington earlier this season, and his speech was just touching. It is always good to see that he is there if I need an ear to turn to.

The last couple of months have been exciting for the club in general. Up to the penultimate round, all five sides were still very much in contention to play finals. Even though the sides finished 1st, 3rd, 4th, 8th, and 6th respectively in their grades, both ODC and ODE only finished outside of the top four by at most a couple of games which shows how close the competition in each of these grades were.

During January we celebrated game milestones for Albert Plummer, 500, and Darren Devereux, 300. During February we also conducted our first Life Members, Past Players, and Sponsors day coinciding with the first week of the last 4th grade home and away fixture. Some 40+ attended the event, and a good time was had by all. This will hopefully be an annual event for Maddington Cricket Club for years to come.

Darren Devereux

Albert Plummer

As mentioned before, now that the season has come to a close, it is now more important than ever to network with family and friends to help ensure that Maddington becomes a powerhouse in the SMCA as we look to the 2013/14 season for further success. We are now on the look out for players, sponsors, and volunteers to help make the club the vibrant and a respected club that we all would like to see and live and have future players wanting to play for The Mighty Bulls!

A final mention as well that we have two BIG nights planned. On April 6 our wind up is scheduled to be at Brooklands Tavern from 6.30pm for 7pm start. For tickets please contact Michael Gibbons on 0432 680 001. It is sure to be a good night for all as we celebrate the 2012/13 season. There are three price categories this year, for Top Side Squad $40 each, for Members outside the top side who paid upfront, $10 each and $40 for partner, and for the Members who did not pay upfront, $40 each and $40 for partner.

The other night is the AGM which has been set for Wednesday May 1 at 7pm, location to be announced soon. With Maddington now a 1st grade club, we need to decide on our new Executive, as well as Committee as important decisions will need to be made to ensure the clubs viability now and into the future. I certainly hope that the current Executive will remain on board for another season, and look forward to the general Committee putting their hands up for another opportunity. As I said, the next six months will be the most important time for Maddington and its future success in 1st grade.

Look forward to seeing you all on April 6 and May 1.
