Mid Season Junior Wrap

Mid Season Junior Wrap

26/12/2020, Geelong, Cricket, Geelong Cricket Association, Article # 30182082

It’s been another crazy start to the year for our junior cricketers, this year we have 6 junior boys’ teams and 2 junior girls’ teams. With COVID hanging around and the uncertainty of the season starting, it’s a credit to our junior committee for getting these teams on the park and ready to play as much cricket as we have. Looking through our senior sides there’s a nice even spread of juniors playing across the grades. Our Under 17 captain Patty Visentin leads the way as he’s made the keeping spot in the 2nds his own. Our Under 15 captain Will Hall has also held his own in our 3rd XI as well as a handful of other players across the hard wicket sides.

 

The oldest of our juniors, The U17s, haven’t had the success of previous years. In fact they only picked up their first win of the season last game before Christmas. As even as the competition is, they now only sit 1 game out of the finals race, proving that a couple of wins after the break and they may yet be playing finals again. With the bat it’s been the skipper Patty Visentin who’s stood tall. His 222 runs for the season so far have come at a reasonable rate including his 99 just before Christmas. Jonny Kelly has played the support role well with 146 runs so far as the pair definitely holds the key to our success for the rest of the season. With the ball Alex Foxwell is a clear standout, having taken 9 wickets already this year, including 7 in the last 2 games. If these guys can continue their Christmas form into next year, there’s no reason why finals can’t be on the agenda for 2021.

 

We’ve had some great success with our kids born around 2005/2006/2007, so much so that we’ve continued to fill 2 sides throughout the past 3 or 4 years. This year is no different as the 2 under 15 sides play off in 2 different competitions. Our North Geelong Black side currently sit atop of the ladder under the mentoring of NGCC legends Sam Hall, Baden Lucas and Craig Biddiscombe. It’s no coincidence that their 3 boys, Will Hall, Fred Lucas and Liam Biddiscombe all feature in the runs, along with Benny Demasi. With the ball again its Benny Demasi that leads the way, however he’s now got plenty of support from team mate, Ribhya Syan who has equalled him with 9 wickets to date. Ribhya picked up a season best of 5/8 just before the Christmas break to give her team a handy win heading into Christmas.

 

To keep the success going, the other Under 15 side also sits atop of the ladder. Young guns such as Aarev Jain and Tom Emery lead the way with the bat. Both boys have made their senior cricketing debuts this year as a reward for their efforts. Along with those 2, David Murphy is also a name to watch out for in the future as he’s only been dismissed 3 times so far. Aarev backs up his batting with the ball as well, as he’s quickly turning into a bright all rounder. His 11 wickets would be leading the competition and with his side performing well, anything could be possible after the Christmas break.

 

Our Under 13s play on a Friday Night, which allows some of the kids to double up in the under 15s on a Saturday morning. One up and coming star we’ve already mentioned is dominating with the bat in the Under 13s, Liam Biddiscombe. Not only is Liam scoring runs for our 15s but he leads the way in the 13s with over 200 runs and averaging just a tick over 100 at the break. Just when you think 2 games of cricket isn’t enough on the weekend for him, Liam also opens the batting in our senior men’s 4ths side, he must be tired by Sunday. An even spread of contributors with the ball sees our Under 13 kids sitting 3rd on the ladder. The 2 sides above them have put a gap on the rest of the competition but let’s hope our young fella's can continue on with their form and give themselves a chance to play finals.

 

Whilst the Under 11s don't really record stats and results, we can say that our future is bright. Across the 2 young sides we have many of rising stars,  Caden Biddiscombe, Archie Crabbe, Finn McKee and Oscar Troy, just to name a few. The name Archie seems to be a popular name down there with 4 Archie's playing across the 2 sides.

 

The oldest of our junior girls teams are the stage 3 Girls, last year they competed off in the Grand Final, and were all but winning the game, until the final 2 balls of the match. This year they sit in 3rd place and only 3 points behind 2nd. Natalie Murphy has taken her game to a whole new level, with the bat she’s scored 83 runs and has only been dismissed twice. With the ball she also has 5 wickets, only behind Chelsea Beckitt who has 7. With finals definitely in sight again for the girls, the 2nd half of the season promises to be exciting.

 

Our youngest girls, the stage 1 girls have started the season well. With a win loss record of 4 wins, 2 losses and a washout, if a ladder was available our girls would be right in the mix. Isla Hanna-Phillips looks set for a big future as she currently has 90 runs and 5 wickets to her name. She leads the way with both bat and ball whilst some other great contributions from players such as Alexandra Joyce, Sophie Emery, Radical Goyal and Ruby Lewis have the girls primed for finals (if they actually play them).

 

We can’t finish our junior wrap without mentioning 2 former NGCC Junior cricketers who this past month have been drafted into the AFL. GWS's newest recruit Tanner Bruhn debuted in our 1st XI only 3 seasons ago whilst also captaining our Under 17s. Charlie Lazarro was picked up by North Melbournelast month, he played as high as our 3rds as well as playing right through the Junior grades. Well done boys, we can’t wait to see you on the big stage.

 

It’s safe to say the Future is well and truly bright for the club, with our Senior sides all fighting for finals, our Junior grades are doing the same, which is full credit to our highly strung Junior Committee led well by our Junior President David Milsome. Let’s hope success is only a few months away!!!

The best place to be at the break... On Top

The best place to be at the break... On Top

21/12/2020, Geelong, Cricket, Geelong Cricket Association, Article # 30176790

The club hits the Christmas Break right where it wants to be... On top of the 1st XI ladder, the 3rd XI ladder and the club championship, as well as right in the mix for the 2nds and 4ths with another clean sweep on the weekend.

 



Tom’s record with the toss has improved out of sight over the recent weeks. Again on Saturday he won the toss and batted first on a flat looking Lara wicket. Blake Troy has been in some ripping form of late and he continued this on Saturday. His 60 up the top back boned our Innings as regular wickets fell at the other end. It wasn't until his brother Mitchell joined him that the pair started ticking things along. With 10 overs remaining a big finish was looming as big hitters Mitch and Soup hit out. At 7/176 with 4 overs remaining, 200 was the target, no one would predict what was to happen next. Tom, with a little help from cossie, proceeded to take the bowlers to town... 57 runs came from the last 4 overs as Tom finished 48 not out from 23 balls. Cossie's cameo seen him get 12 as we finished 7/233.

 



With runs on the board, our bowlers knew they still had work to do, Lachy Hayes got the guys going with 2 wickets to set Lara back. His efforts were then backed up by Soup who would grab 2 huge wickets just as Lara started to get on top. From their our guys put the squeeze right on, Soup grabbing another 2 to finish with 4/24 from his 10 as Lara finished 7/168 and leaving our guys 9 points clear on top at the break.

 



After being locked in Melbourne for the better part of 6 months it’s only taken Brayden McGregor 5 games to find his feet out in the middle. His knock of 91 set up our 2nds 5th straight win after our guys posted 6/179. Lara in reply never looked in the hunt and with Tom Bagg in the form of his life picking up 4 wickets as the guys came away winners by 66 runs and have moved into the top 4 for the first time this season.

 



Our 3rd XI bowling attack keeps going from strength to strength with no side having scored over 122 against us in the past 5 matches. Saturday was no different as we strangled Lara to be all out for 103. Usual suspects Tim Birch, Col Millard and Hugo Clatworthy all popped up getting wickets. The run chase was a breeze as well with Andrew Ferg striding out to open. He and partner Hamish Lucas knocked over the 104 in 21 overs to have our guys sitting 3 points clear on top. Ferg finishing 74 not out.

 



The 4ths moved to equal 4th with another hard fought victory. Batting first our guys were well lead by Danny Tielens. His 60 was a clear standout as no other bat could manage over 22. With the ball Danny did the job as well picking up 3/20. Skipper Hillsy was at his economical best with 2/8 whilst Smidge also picked up 2/9 to give the guys their 5th win of the year.

 



Similar to last week the 5th XI were the only side to lose out on another successful weekend. Bowling first our guys looked to have done a reasonable job keeping City to 7/157. Aarav Jain picking up 3 wickets and Brett Kirby 2. In reply we lost wickets on too regular of a basis as only Paul McKee and Fred Lucas could stem together a partnership. The guys sit in 7th place, yet only 2 games out of the top 4. A few wins after Christmas and anything can happen for the guys.

 



So that wraps up the 1st half of what was promised to be a very different season. With so much uncertainty around any events going ahead we can definitely sit back and be blessed with what we have seen occur this season so far. So much so that we had 95 adults attending our Adults Christmas party on Saturday Night. Then on Sunday 40 of the young North Geelong Junior brigade were given presents from a quick fly in fly out visit from Santa. The Christmas weekend always promises to be a great celebration and this year was no different. 2020 was such an indifferent year... on field for us it wasn't too bad at all. A 1st XI premiership in the first half of the year and now we sit atop of the ladder again, lets hope 2021 gives us the same amount of success!!

SPECIAL DRIVER ANNOUNCEMENT!

We are excited to share that Supercars co-driver Dean Canto and the Megane Trophy V6 will be racing at this year's Geelong Revival Motoring Festival thanks to our friends at Renault Australia. 

Dean Canto has been a household name in Australian motorsport for years. Winning a number of Supercars and GT events and currently co-driving with Prodrive Racing Australia, Canto will be sure to show the crowds just what the Megane Trophy V6 is made of!

Catch the Megane Trophy V6 sprint down the 1/4 mile track on both Saturday and Sunday of the event. Also be sure to visit the Renault Exhibition located in Steampacket Gardens. 


Amazing Allard J2

We have the honour of showcasing so many spectacular vehicles at the Geelong Revival Motoring Festival each year. The Allard J2, driven by competitor Graham Smith, is just one of these vehicles.

The Allard has some impressive stats and even more impressive history. The Allard J2 was extremely popular in the USA, but only a very small number came to Australia.

This example is believed to be the first J-type Allard brought into Australia by Rube Gardiner in 1950. Originally most J2 cars were fitted with a side valve Ford V8, but this particular car had a Chrysler OHV V8 fitted in the mid sixties.




Catch the Allard J2 and over 150 more vehicles race in the historic 1/4 mile sprints.

Just a couple of the food trucks at this year's event are Copa Grill and Smokey & the Brisket. We're talking pulled meats, juicy brisket burgers and saucy ribs. We have a wide variety of cuisines and food options across the entire event precinct, so make sure you have a light breakfast and treat yourself!





 

CARAVANS FILLED WITH CHARACTER

The Revival vintage caravan display will take you back to holidays of a bygone era. Take a peak inside trailers filled with character and authentic fittings many of which are towed by matching cars! The vintage caravan display proves to be a crowd favourite each event and we will have a record number of caravans on display this year. Come and chat to some of the owners including Max McGinley and his dog Lilly in tow with her own matching caravan!
