Season Preview: 4th Grade (a.k.a. “The Troops”)
Last season: 3rd
Leading Batsmen: Matt Fawcett (477 @ 28.06), Allan Hall (310 @ 31), James Dicarlo (288 @ 19.2), Lloyd Quinlan (263 @ 16.44), Brayden Meyers (231 @ 25.67), Greg Maher (208 @ 52)

The boys from Kingsway 2 had a dominant 2014/16, yet failed to land the killer blow on several occasions. Unfortunately one such occasion was the Elimination Final, where the Troops were bundled out for just 73 after routing Perth CC for 103.
Captain: Allan Hall
Gains: A wealth of young talent
Losses: James Dicarlo (Overseas), Joel Carnie (Retired), Brayden Meyers (Carpet cricket)
Predicted Finish: Premiers
The Troops will be looking to convert a strong season with a successful Finals campaign in 2015/16, bolstered by plenty of talent from the youth coming through from the 15s/17s.
