Weekend Wrap

The Seniors came close to the ever-elusive “Golden Roo”, with 1st Grade going down to miss out on the clean sweep. Meanwhile, the 17s & 15s had a fortnight to forget.

1st Grade

After losing the toss and being banished to the field, there were high-fives aplenty as Gosnells rolled over for just 117. Jack “The Carpenter” Cattrall was the chief destroyer with 6/29.

Some early nerves gave way to extreme panic as the Roos crashed to 8/49. Travis “Used Bed for Sale” Birt made the bold decision to declare the innings closed and chase a reverse outright. Despite losing one before the close of play, and slumping to 2/8 on the 2nd morning, Gosnells built steadily to snuff out any hope of a 2nd innings result.

2nd Grade

Batting first at Sutherlands Park, the Magoos built an innings around a masterful 94 by Cam “Igor” MacDonald. With solid contributions by Callum “DVD” Douglas (43) and Michael “The Birthday Boy” Kelsey (30), the Roos posted an intimidating 8 declared for 253.

In reply, Gosnells looked good at 1/86 until John “Minister for Fantasy” Walter piled on the Fantasy points with 5/38. Gosnells lost 9/49 to be routed for just 135.

3rd Grade

Bowling first at Kingsway 2, the Roos turned in a quality all-round performance with the ball, dismissing Gosnells for 137 with two wickets apiece to Tyler “Skeletor’s Missus Tattoo” Ong, Hayden “Rumpers” Stumpers and Sharad “Sharon” Jessani.

Players, spectators, and assorted children’s party-goers across the road were then treated to a coaching clinic as Joel “Coach” Charles amassed 105. After passing the total with 8 wickets in hand, Matt “Junk-Time” Dzodzos rubbed salt into the wound by knocking up 88.

4th Grade

The Al Gores were set 173 at Sutherlands Park, with Sam “Unleaded” Williams the pick of the bowlers with 3/39.

In reply, the Roos lost an early wicket before kicking into gear, passing the runs with just three wickets lost. Lachie “Hendo” Henderson (68) batted superbly, and was well supported by Liam “KP” Carroll.


The scorecard wasn’t happy viewing for the Roos as they were rolled for just 43 at Kingsway 2. The visitors easily accounted for the runs before piling on some more, finally dismissed for 206. Michael “Herbie” Herbst trucked hard for 4/32.


Avid MyCricket followers were bemused and/or confused as our 15s declared at 6/78. Ironically, Gosnells passed the total six wickets down before Kyal Richardson piled on 106 to propel the home side to 288.

192. Chad Hitchcock

A huge congratulation to Chad “The Chad” Hitchcock on his debut for Wanneroo DCC 1st Grade vs. Gosnells at Kingsway 1 on Saturday 23rd February 2019.

Chad has been a fantastic addition to the Roos in 2018-19, churning out 396 runs in 2nd Grade along with taking four sneaky wickets. He’s also one of the nicest blokes you’ll meet.


Well done Chad!

Weekend Wrap vs. Perth

There was much excitement at Fletcher Park East as Adam Smith led 1st Grade to their 4th consecutive victory. The remaining senior teams had a match to forget, whilst our 13s secured a home semi final.

1st Grade

Batting first at Fletcher Park East, the Roos were in trouble early as Josh Nicholas (4/63) and Jacob Van Galen (4/48) reduced the visitors to 4/41.

Skipper Travis “Purveyor of Fine Socks” Birt (56) steadied the ship with Haydn “Devon” Slodecki (32) before a lower order partnership between Jack “Allrounder” Cattrall (47*) and Caiden “Slug” Eaton (26) steered the Roos to a respectable 222.

Day two was a finger biting affair, with Perth recovering from 7/83 to reach 7/148 on the back of a fighting 60 from Jonathan Wells. Adam “Rocket” Smith was the hero of the day, taking 4/35 including the wicket of Wells and the final wicket to bowl out Perth for 193. Smith was well supported by Chris “Q” Quelch (3/38) and Caiden “Massive Slug” (2/52).

2nd Grade

The Magoos trucked hard in the heat as Perth set an imposing 9/274 off their 90 overs. Perth’s Dan Moreton (99) fell just short of a century, whilst Donavinn “Buffalo Steak” Fryer was the pick of the bowlers with 4/36. Jordan “Katie Price” Slattery chimed in with 2/32.

274 proved to be too big of a task, and despite several promising starts only Jim “Yarrrr” DiCarlo (34) passed 30 as the Roos were dismissed for 143. Alex Calmy (4/51) and Ethan Carrington (4/15) were the pick of Perth’s bowlers.

3rd Grade

The Magees will be disappointed to have not built on several starts, with eight batsmen reaching double figures but none passing 35.

Andrew “No. 1” Slattery top scored with 34 as the Roos were dismissed for 162.

In reply, Perth slumped to 3/36 before I Townsend (121*) and E Munday (104*) combined for a massive 232 run partnership to romp to a seven wicket victory.

4th Grade

The upper hand was exchanged several times at Kingsway 2, with Perth eventually finishing the day with 220. The star with the ball was undoubtedly Nick “Sandwich” Santich taking 6/91.

In reply, the Roos slumped to 7/79 before Hayden “” Stumpers (51) added some respectibility to the score. Wanneroo were dismissed for 144.


Wanneroo batted first and made 179, with Mitch “MS Dhoni” Slattery top scoring with 30.

In reply, Perth won with three wickets in hand, eventually posting 9/244. Aiden Davies top scored for Perth with 60.


The 15s powered to 7/203 on the back of a wonderful batting display from Connor “Spangers & Mash” Spangenberg (61). Spangenburg was well supported by Jack “Jack Black” Maraldo (31) Michael “Taking” DeFilippis (25*).

Despite a gallant effort by Perth, the Roos held their nerve to restrict the visitors to 7/194 and win by 9 runs. Jack “Russell” Maraldo (3/31) was the hero with the ball for the Roos.


After winning the toss and batting, the Roos failed to capitalise on several starts but still posted 5/183 off 39.3 overs vs. Mount Lawley. Cody “Billy C” Billington top scored with 26.

In reply, Mount Lawley were too good as they reached the target with six wickets in hand and went on to post 5/183. Tyrone Virgo (81*) and Evan French (59) were the chief destroyers with the bat, whilst Adam “Jerry” Lewis (2/28) was the best with the ball for the Roos.


Wanneroo won the toss and invited Mount Lawley to bat first. After making some early inroads, our young Roos were under the pump as James Timcke (50) and Matthew Crock (34) put on 84 for the 4th wicket.

Oscar “The Grouch” Thompson (3/34) and Ben “BC” Carmignani (3/38) saved the day as the Roos clawed back the Hawks to restrict them to 9/146.

In reply, Tyler “TB” Brown (66) and Blake “The Snake” Holly (33) guided the Roos to victory as they posted 6/159.
