Weekend Wrap vs. Fremantle

Seniors

For the 2nd game in a row, 3rd Grade saved the Club from the dreaded “Brown Roo”, salvaging the only win vs. Freo.

Player of the Round was undoubtedly the Comeback King Andrew “John Farnham” Slattery whose fighting 81 rescued his team. Honorable mentions to Gagandeep “G Train” Singh (4/4 in 3s), Riley “Holly Riley” Holly (59 in 2s) and Sharad “Sharon” Jessani (5/55 in 4s).

Juniors

Our Juniors shared the spoils with both Fremantle and Bayswater-Morley, with wins to our 17s and 13s sandwiching losses in the 15s & 14s.

Connor “S-Berg” Spangenberg was outstanding in the 15s, scoring 33 with the bat before taking 5/3 with the ball! Sensational stuff.  Honorable mentions to Cody “Brother of Lando” Billington (52 in the 14s) and a cheeky 69* to Tyler “Why do we have so many Connors and Tylers?” Brown in the 13s.

Fantasy Wrap Round 3

There concludes our first double week round. In round three club legend and all around great moustache haver Cameron ‘The Weapons’ MacDonald has taken his first win, thanks to his Fantasy Captain Jack Cattrall providing a cheeky 165 (330) points. I only hope he pays his entry fee before something happens to the bar card with his name on it.

Other news, Lachlan ‘Punjab Frogs XI’ has taken the early lead on the overall tally, with the Brendo ‘Beard with human attached’ close behind. And look at that, Rob Fairchild is in the running again this year, closing out the top 3.

1st Grade Debutant: Stuart Thompson

190. Stuart Thompson

Stuart Thompson has joined the mighty Roos for the 1st half of the 2018-19 season, and made his 1st Grade debut for the Roos on Sat 13th October vs. Claremont-Nedlands.  Stuart made 54 off 56 balls.

 

A man who needs no introduction, Stuart comes to the Roos having represented Ireland in all formats of the game.  His salad is ordinary but his beard is ferocious.

Welcome Stuart!

Weekend Wrap

3rd Grade were the lone winners on a rainy weekend, which saw three games abandoned after Sunday hosing.

WDCC vs. Claremont-Nedlands

1st & 2nd Grade went down fighting, whilst 3rd Grade were treated to a triumphant Slattery-fest.  The 4th Grade fixture will be played in November due to ground shortages.  The 17s and 15s games were called off due to the downpour on Sunday.

WDCC vs. Midland-Guildford

1st Grade was abandoned, and 2nd Grade came agonizingly close to winning their 1st game of the season.

Fantasy Round 1 Wrap

Morning Fantasy Players.

Firstly, we’ve done it! This is the first year we have hit 50 players in the WDCC Fantasy. Congratulations and well done to everyone involved for getting involved! For anyone yet to make a team, its not too late. Head on over to https://wanneroo-districts.fantasyclubcricket.co.uk/ to have a look, sign up and start selecting your team.
With these numbers round prizes will remain as they were last year (your choice of $40 cash or a $50 bar card), but there will be more in the kitty for the end of season prizes.

Thankyou also to the 14 people that have so far paid. Those that paid prior to the game Saturday have been given their bonus 100 points.

Now for results. Round 1 has wrapped up and Andy ‘Coaches the Future’ Billington has come out hard from the gate! In a masterstroke, AB decided (accidentally) on using the Triple Point Captain play straight up (accidentally) on Travis Birt, who collected a round-topping 108 points. In what could be seen as slightly suspicious Deon ‘the younger Billington’ Billington ended up in 2nd place.
