And that’s the game…

A small chatter this week as we transitioning from attempting to playing cricket to watching those in the younger quadrant playing football in the mud and wet!

Well done to our association trophy winners:

  • Mitch Boschen (A1 Reserves Bowling)
  • Dan Reu (A4 Batting)
  • Darryl Hean (A4 MVP)
  • Will Loffler (Under 16 Bowling Aggregate)
  • Jake Hartigan (Under 14 Fielding)

Special mentions to those who managed to achieve a top 5 finish:

  •      Dylan Birchard – Under 14 Bowling Aggregate & Average
  • Will Loffler – Under 16 Batting Aggregate & Average and runner up in the Under 16 Bowling Aggregate
  • Darryl Hean – A4 Batting Aggregate and Average and also in the A4 Bowling Aggregate and Average
  • Chris Collins – A4 Bowling Aggregate and Average
  • Toby Mifflin – A2 Batting Aggregate and Average
  • Luke Samain – A1 Reserves Bowling Aggregate and Average

The season closed out with a combined Junior and Senior presentation day on Sunday.  We won’t go into all the detail of the end of year presentation day, congratulations to all of the trophy winners.   Whilst individual trophies aren’t what we head into a cricket season for, with that elusive team prize the one we are all aiming for, congratulations to those that have topped the leader boards.

Congratulations to Mitch Boschen – the man with a chair full of trophies – a stellar year which yielded 43 wickets in A1 Reserves – terrific effort Mitch.  A very worthy winning of the club’s MVP for 2013/2014.

The highlight of the presentation day was when one of the gentlemen of the game achieves more than any player to come before him, with that man being Jon Farley.  It was great to see Jon’s family and a couple of our life members in  Kevin Bartsch and Ray Giersch  on hand to see Jon being acknowledged for becoming the games record holder for the Tanunda Cricket Club, with 311 games (not out).

Not only did the club celebrate 300 games for Jon in style, but President Darren had great delight in surprising Jon with the honour of becoming a life member of the Tanunda Cricket Club.  Well done Jon.

That wraps up the year.  A successful year for the club, a huge leap forward without the flags we were hoping for – but watch out for next year!  For those that think a casual game of cricket is behind you, watch out on the hill at the footy this year – we’re coming to get you!

Good luck to the Tanunda Football, Netball and Hockey clubs as they fly the flag in the wetter and colder months.  Let’s make sure Tanunda boys and girls are happy.

The Tanunda Cricket Club is back where we want to be – in finals action.  Not quite the couple of premierships – but we’ll come back bigger and stronger next year.

Finally, and importantly, thanks to all of our sponsors for your wonderful support throughout the season.   Your support makes it possible for us to play the game we love each week.  Thank you.

See you in 2014/2015!

Senior wrap up

Congratulations to all the senior sides for making the finals this season. It’s a big turn around from last season where all three sides finished bottom of the ladder!

Congratulations also to the 1’s and the 4’s for getting over the line in the semi-final to make it through to the grand final. Hard luck for the 2’s again, missing out on playing in that final game of the season!

Don’t forget to support the grand finalists by getting out to training this week and to also support them in the GF.

1’s are playing at Stockwell, 4’s are at Eudunda.

Preseason trainings

Trainings will continue on Sundays at 11am up until daylight savings kicks in. We then swap over to the Tuesday/Thursday trainings commencing Tuesday 8th October.

Chris Harms will try to make himself available on Thursday nights prior to then before dark if anyone is looking for some extra training time or coaching.

Info on upcoming 2013/2014 season

Hi all,
Training for the 2013/2014 season begins on Sunday 15th September at 11am.

Subs are remaining the same again this year, $150 per player and $100 for students.

We’ll be entering 3 senior sides again this season. A1 Reserves, A2’s and either A4’s or A5’s depending on where the association places us.

We’re also looking to get the Magpie Chatter up and running again this season, so if you’re interested in writing a short piece each week detailing the highlights and low-lights that occur on and off the field, then please let us know.

See you all out on the training track to get ready for a great season ahead of us!

Annual General Meeting

The Tanunda Cricket Club is holding its Annual General Meeting on Sunday 11th August, at the cricket club at 11:30am.

The AGM is a time for people to come along, voice any concerns or ideas you might have for the club, and join the Tanunda Cricket Club committee. The committee meets throughout the year at varoius times and helps run the club leading up to and during the season.
Should you want to come and help shape things to come at the Tanunda Cricket Club and help make this club the wonderful place it is now to play cricket, then come along to the AGM and make you voice heard!

We hope to see you down there.

Winter blues…

Well, the cold has definitely set in and footy is well and truly under way again for another season.

The northern hemisphere Summer is beginning and so is cricket over there. It won’t be long and then we’ll be donning the whites again and getting out there for another season back home! In the meantime, let’s hope the Aussies do well in the Ashes series and stick it to the Poms!

Stay safe and stay warm over the Winter months and we’ll see you all out at training later in the year for what is surely to be a better season for the Tanunda Cricket Club!

End of the 2012/2013 Season

The 2012/2013 season is well and truly over now. The Tanunda Cricket Club would like to thank all the players that played this year throughout the different grades.

Unfortunately, it was a year to forget for the senior grades, but congratulations to the U14’s for completing the season undefeated and being the only side to make finals.

The 2013/2014 season promises to be a better one and we all hope that you have a wonderful off season and we’ll see you back out at the club and on the ground later on the year!
