Record Breaking Gordon Juniors Want More

Record Breaking Gordon Juniors Want More

First Game Back is September 19 

It was a record breaking performance by Gordon Juniors with 26 wonderful teams playing cricket for the club least season.

The growing number of teams and players is the greatest measure of success of any sporting club. The club would like to say a big thank you to all the players and parents for contributing so much this season.

But we don't want to stop there. We want to see even more children playing cricket with Gordon Juniors next season.

Registrations for the new season will start in late July 2015 with the first game for U10s and above on the weekend of September 19 and 20.

In2Cricket starts October 10. 

The club looks forward to seeing everyone back for the 2015/16 - and bring a friend along to play.

Gordon Juniors is the local cricket club for Chatswood, Willoughby, Artarmon, Castle Cove, Middle Cove and Castlecrag. But we have players from all over Sydney enjoying cricket with Gordon Juniors because of our reputation as a friendly community based club built on giving everyone a fair go while building skills.

Top Awards for Gordon Juniors  

Three promising Gordon Juniors have been honoured in the club's annual awards for the 2014/15 season.

Daimon Pin is the player of the season picking up the coveted Mal Hall Award. Daimon - from U11 Red - was the leading run scorer and wicket taker for the NSJCA U11 Division 1. He scored 353 runs at 70.6 and took 22 wickets at an averaged of 5.91.

The Clyde Coltman Award for outstanding achievement went to Tatsumi Mochizuki from our U12 Blues. Tats, as he is known to his teammates, only started playing two season ago having never touched a cricket bat or ball. His coach said of Tats: "He is the most vocal on the field, constantly encouraging bowlers and shouting from the sideline at batsman. He arrives at training first and leaves last. He has not missed a single game. At times he bats last and bowls last and has never complained, says he his just happy to part of junior cricket and friends. He is first to console during those emotional moments, throws a joke in to make a crying mate laugh again, to say its ok we're here for fun."    

Archie McGurk (that's him in the middle in the photo below with team mates) picked up the Kingsgrove Sports Most Promising Cricketer of the Year award. Archie - who plays for the U10 Red side - bats, bowls leg spin and is a mean fielder and wicket keeper.

Undefeated Reds Claim Title

Successful Season for Gordon Teams 

Our mighty Gordon Juniors U10 Red side have been crowned champions for the 2014/15 season.

The Reds - who went the entire season undefeated - won the U10 North competition. 

There was further success in the same division with the U10 Blues claiming the Cup Final against St Ives. 

The U11 Gold and U14/15 Blue teams did well to make the championship finals but just fell at the final hurdle. Congratulations to both teams for making the major finals - especially the U14/15 Blues who were minor premiers.

The U11 Red team was also minor premiers for the season in Division 1.

Our Young Cricketers Back in October for 2015/16   

Our wonderful in2Cricketers enjoyed another fantastic summer of fun in 2014/15. We'd like to say a big thank you to the children and parents for making the season so enjoyable. We hope the older children will now move on to play with Gordon Juniors in the under 9s next season. For everyone else, we look forward to seeing you back in October for the 2015/16 season. 

When we come back next season we want to see even more children playing. So encourage family and friends to come along. Please see below on how to register.

Last season almost 100 children enjoyed cricket with Gordon Juniors every Saturday morning. As well as having heaps of fun, the children were developing their cricket skills.

in2Cricket is ideal for children aged 5 to 8 although we do take children younger and older.

My thanks to all the boys and girl for making it a really great season of Milo in2Cricket at Beauchamp Park in Chatswood. I'd especially like to thank all the wonderful parents for getting involved on Saturdays. Being a part of your child's early cricket experience makes it more enjoyable.

Each week the players and parents turned up with big smiles for a morning of fun while learning the skills of cricket. These are skills vital to building the confidence of the boys and girls as they advance into Under 9s and beyond.

One season highlight was the successful Bring Your Sister Day where girls came along to experience the cricket fun.

Another highlight was Pink Stumps Day raising money for the McGrath Foundation.

How will I place children into the groups/teams?

  • The groups are picked on age and I do my best to put friends with friends (as requested on registration form). This is not always possible due to group size and some friends not yet registered. There are no good, bad or whatever teams. They’re all fun teams.
  • In2cricket is not only about playing the game, but being able to expand our children's social skills. Please stay with the groups listed for the first week. PLEASE - do not email or call re changing teams.

 

How many teams?

  • This depends on numbers but going on last season we expect at least 12 teams. All will be named after current NSW cricketers. I will endeavour to keep the teams even but with late registrations the numbers vary from team to team. I have also kept the younger kids' teams smaller so they can have a bit more supervision.

 

See you next in October.
