Reds Win Grand Final

Reds Win Grand Final

Thrilling End to Season for U10s 

Roseville won the toss and elected to bat at Chatswood High School. Was a solid opening partnership by them, with Gordon fielding well. A one handed caught and bowled may have been the turning point in the game with Gordon then finding another gear, producing tight bowling and sharp fielding. A few run outs being the reward for effort. A solid effort restricting them to 66 runs and the taking of 5 wickets.
Gordon started off a bit shaky loosing some early wickets in the top 4 batsmen. However, a consolidation in the middle order and a display of fine batting and running by the lower order, powered Gordon to what seemed a winning score. However, the loss of more wickets than their counterparts could have proved to be costly. Nine wickets were lost in the chase!
However, once the scores were tallied, 118 runs were scored by Gordon before the addition of the bonus wicket runs. An impressive 9/138 to 5/102 win for the Gordon Reds. It was always a much closer game than the final score shows. A great game of cricket by both sides and an enjoyable game to watch for all.

Great Afternoon for All our Families

Milo in2Cricket starts in October

Milo in2Cricket starts in October

The Gordon Cricket Club is excited to announce that the Gordon Cricket Academy will continue to run the Club’s Milo in2Cricket program in season 2017/18 season. The dates will be from October 14, 2017 to March 3, 2018 with a break from 23rd December to 27th January. There will be 15 sessions in all. And registrations are now open.  

The Milo in2Cricket program is a fun and exciting way for younger children to get their first taste of cricket. The program is open to boys and girls aged 5 to 8 years and is an important first step to introduce new players and parents to cricket and set them on the right pathway for a lifelong love of cricket. The main aims of the program are:

  • to provide a safe, non-competitive environment where young and new players can develop their cricket skills and have fun
  • to link young cricketers to the Gordon Cricket Club and prepare them for their pathway from in2Cricket to Gordon Juniors and beyond
  • to encourage more parents to become actively involved in the administration, coaching and support of the game

With the program commencing in October, the time is right to register your child for the coming season. Registrations are now open. If you have any questions please contact Ash Doolan at ash@cricketappeal.com.au. The link to the registration is at the bottom of the article.

The key details regarding the program are as follows:

  • Location: Beauchamp Oval - Nicholson St, Chatswood  -->  MAP
  • Dates: the program runs on Saturday mornings from 14th October to 16th December and recommences after the holidays from 3rd February to 3rd March 2018
  • Registration: Program registration is $180 per child; this covers the 15 session program and Milo in2Cricket participant pack containing a bag, cricket bat, hat, shirt, ball and other giveaways. This season in2Cricket program registrations/ payments will only be accepted through the Play Cricket website, with the link found at the bottom of the page.
  • Session duration: each session runs from 8:00am- 9:30am
  • Session format: Players are divided into teams based on age where they’ll practice cricket skills for the first half of the session and then play a modified game during the second half of the session. The session concludes with the announcement of players of the week and a hearty rendition of the Junior Club song

The Milo in2Cricket program is designed to identify and develop not just future players but also future administrators, coaches and support staff. To achieve this - and to keep registration costs down - parents are vital to the success of the program. We strongly encourage parents to stay and assist with their child during each session – no experience is necessary and we’re confident that you will enjoy yourself and learn a thing or two along the way. There is space on the registration form to nominate for coaching and other roles in the Gordon in2Cricket program.
