Three Honoured at Presentation Day

Hundreds Celebrate End of Fabulous Season

Three Gordon Juniors were honoured as an action-packed Presentation Day brought a successful 2015/16 season to a close.

In front of hundreds of young cricketers and their families, Will Stanley, Josh Brayshaw and Cedar Barry picked up the major club awards.

Will - who plays for both U11 Gold and U12 Red - was named Player of the Season. Will scored a total of 436 runs at an average of 33.5 and took 14 wickets at an average of 14.8 for both teams.

Cedar Barry - U10 Orange - received the Special Performance Award. His enthusiasm, encouragement and sporting competitiveness helped to bind a team of boys who had never really met each other at the start of the year and were a collection of kids from different schools. Cedar top scored in Gordon’s semi-final with 20 not out - most importantly scoring runs when his team needed them the most. Cedar reflects what Gordon Junior cricket is about - mateship, teamwork, support and encouragement for all his teammates and respect for his opposition.

Josh Brayshaw - from the U12 Gold team - received the Kingsgrove Sports Promising Player of the Year Award. Josh scored 264 runs at an average of 52.8 and took 18 wickets at an average of 8.9.

Thank you to all who turned out at Chatswood Oval. We look forward to seeing you all again for the 2016/17 season.

Congratulations to Winners

Three Gordon teams won championship titles this season - a wonderful achievement for a club that prizes participation and a fair go for all.

The U11 Reds won the Division 1 title while U11 Gold won the Division 2 title. Our U14 Blues won their Sunday competition.

Elsewhere, U11 Green won the Division 2 Plate Final making it good result for the club's Under 11 age group. Well done to all the players, coaches, managers and parents.

Also competing in championship titles were U13 Red, U12 Red, U12 Blue and U10 Silver.

A special congratulations to Gordon Red (Under 13 Div 1) and also to Gordon Gold (Under 11 Div 2) who were Minor Premiers in their respective Divisions. Both team lost only one game during the regular season.

But it's not all about winning.

The club is going from strength to strength because we treat every player equally and play the game in the right spirit. We are extremely proud of each and every player and we value their contribution. We trust that all our members enjoyed their cricket immensely this season. We hope to see as many of you as possible next season.

Major Milestone for Players  

Five more Gordon Juniors scored remarkable centuries this season - joining an elite group to play more than 100 games for the club. Tom Hampson, Oliver Cameron, James Dow, Doug Oxenham and Reeve Cocks all passed the milestone in the 2015/16 season.

Tom Hampson - who plays for our U16/17 Red side - has racked up 123 games since starting as an Under 9 way back in the 2006/2007 season. Oliver Cameron, James Dow, Doug Oxenham and Reeve Cocks - part of our U16/17 Blue side - have all played together since the Under 9s.

There are now 21 players who have more than 100 games for Gordon Juniors since we started keeping records.

Mitch O'Donnell holds the record with an amazing 140 games for the club. His younger brother Jake notched his 100th game last season.

Playing 100 games for Gordon Juniors is a remarkable achievement and the club recognised the milestone with special trophies for all the boys. We look forward to seeing them all push towards the 150 next season.
