U16 Reds V Prospect Progress Score

Feb 132017

After 4x venue changes mid week, the 16 Reds finally got to play on Ford Oval on a hot & humid day. With the team unsure whether to bat or bowl, captain Jack Konnis was left with the ultimate task and decided to bat. The loss of early wickets hurt and we struggled to build partnerships. With good batting depth some fine performances were displayed. Peter Unerkov (30) looked to have all the luck with some near chances until he was incredibly run out. Jack Konnis dug in at the other end and I begged him to be there at the end. From a target of 230+ we suddenly hoped to limp past 150. Enter Jack Read. His first game in the Reds saw the debutant refuse to be bogged down and he played all his shots. Suddenly the scoring opened up and 150 was reached. Jack went on to make a remarkable 46 in tough conditions just when we needed someone to step up. At the other end one of the finest innings you will ever see was taking place. A young man with an outstanding attitude and relaxed demeanour played an inspirational innings that brought a tear to the eye. His 117* was pure class. There wasn’t a chance given all day and the captain played his heart out. He was well supported by Darcy Hunkin late in the day who ensured Jack reached his milestone. Now our bowlers must deliver on day 2.

Kensington : 7/220 dec : Konnis 117*, Read 46, Unerkov 30, Hunkin 13*
Prospect : 0/4

Hi All,

With the weather in command and Port Adelaide not wanting to prepare a pitch, the 1st Grade girls made a useless trip to Port Adelaide last night. As it turned out no games were played and the matches have been rescheduled for Wednesday the 15th of Feb. (next week). All games at Park 25. We are on Park 25#1.

The 1st Grade this Sunday will come up against West Torrens at Parkinson Oval. Game time 11:50 start which means that players need to be dressed and ready to warm up by 11:00. Get there and be ready to go. A home game so afternoon tea is required. New Captain this week so Popey get the afternoon tea bringers sorted. If you don't have all emails let me know and i can forward them on.

Hi All,

We live in hope of a changed weather forecast for Sunday. At least it has dropped from 45mm of rain to 20mm. A further reduction and we'll be set to go. 
The first Grade return to 50 over cricket this week with the last minor round game of the 20/20 competition on next WEDNESDAY! Despite a loss last week there is still a chance for the 1st Grade to make the Final due to other results. Defeating Port Adelaide will put us in with a chance.
THIS SUNDAY all 3 teams are at home at Kensington which is fantastic. If you get an opportunity to wnder over and support the other teams PLEASE DO. It is easy to get caught up in one team and not recognise the other players from our club. WE ARE ALL KENSINGTON PLAYERS AND SUPPORTERS AND WORKERS. We need to support each other AND the club as a whole. After the games it would be wonderful to have players and supporters come up to the clubrooms for a chat and a drink to celebrate what we have and to work on making us better and stronger.
Myself and Chloe went to a session last night run by the SACA on "A Sport for All". it was interesting to hear from the SACA plus the other clubs. There are things we do well but there is still a lot that we can do to get better. It needs to come from everyone though. Committee (Club and Women's), Coaches, Administrators, Players and parents and supporters. More to come later.

U 16 Reds V Tea Tree Gully Round 8 Report

 U16 Reds  Comments Off on U 16 Reds V Tea Tree Gully Round 8 Report
Jan 232017
The 16 Reds continued their great form with a brilliant outright victory over Tea Tree Gully at Marryatville High School.

Winning the toss and electing to bowl on what appeared to be a juicy pitch proved the right call as the Kensington quicks tore through the TTG top order. At 4/2, it’s difficult to recover and our bowling kept applying the pressure. As of this game we were 1st in the comp for wickets taken, and 1st for least runs against us. Those stats tell the story of an accurate bowling attack. It has been backed up by crazy good catching. Strike bowler Darcy Hunkin has lead the comp for bowling and continues to do so. His late swinging accurate bowling is of a superior class. I think Mitchell Starc would be impressed.
With Darcy Hunkin 4/10 on fire, being backed up by Will McGowan 3/12 and Liam Greber 2/5, TTG showed little resistance. TTG all out 54
Special mention to the catch of the season to Henry Rice. He was left winded but wasn’t letting go of a screamer and Liam Greber took a rocket catch at mid off.
Peter Unerkov and Tom Van der Juegd got us of to a solid start with the bat yet again putting on a solid 62 for the opening partnership. Passing the gullies score without loss meant our batsmen could play freely and Tom Van der Juegd made the most. His 69 (79 balls) was class. He hit 6x fours and 4x sixes in a very entertaining innings. Stumps: Kensington 2/103
Day 2:  The teams decision was to bat on and make sure TTG could not challenge us again. We set ourselves a score of 150 to declare in quick time.
Luke Pedlar (18) and Sam Burgess (21) made sure we reached our target quickly. Sam at a run a ball played a real team innings. Kensington 6/149 declared
TTG came out with a much better performance with the bat and whilst their mode was defensive, they gave us very little on a deck that was becoming lifeless compared to the week before. Wickets were hard to come by. Darcy Hunkin got the big break through but it wasn’t until Liam Greber took the second wicket on the stroke of tea that the team believed an outright may still be possible. A change of ends for Darcy making great use of a slight breeze and his raging swing bowling turned the game. He was simply too good for the defensive TTG batsmen. All bowled and LBW , Darcy put a master class. He finished with 5/13 and match figures of 9/ 23. His second 9x wicket match of the season. Darcy couldn’t do it alone. Liam Greber 2/9 off 10 overs included 6x maidens and spinner Will Cowling 2/28 provided great support but yet again catching proved crucial. Two classics to Angas Marshall in close on the leg were diving, scooping catches that were of great importance. At 2/47, Gullies lost 8/30 and Kensington had their second outright of the season. A massive game against Southerns this week will test us and show our real form. I challenge all boys to give 110% at training this week and prepare extra well for this match. Good luck.

destroying the Adelaide batting attack after they got to 55 with out loss then lost 5 wickets for 4 runs.

Our fielding and catching was fantastic for the whole carnival.


In reply we made the runs with  only the  loss of Arham Hashmi for 15, with Lucas Froude 44 no and Henry Dall

58 no in 30 overs, with 20 overs to spare.


A brilliant couple of weeks by this squad, undefeated and superbly coached by Michael Sullivan and Jordan Leiman.

Jan 162017
The U16 Reds have secured first innings points on day one of their two day game V Tea Tree Gully. On a beautiful Marryatville oval, The decision was to bowl if we won the toss and the decision went our way. Weather was superb.

A few overs later and TTG were 4/2 and the decision justified. TTG all out 54
Will McGowan took 3/12, Darcy Hunkin 4/10 and Liam Greber 2/5 were simply too good. Darcy Hunkin now has 19 wickets for the season and leads the Reds competition- well deserved.
A spectacular catch to Henry Rice left him struggling to breathe however he was never going to let go of the catch of the season. 
Kensington 2/103: ( stumps)

Tom Van der Juegd played his best innings of the season with a magic 69 from 79 deliveries. His innings included 4x sixes & 6x fours and his presence at the crease was intimidating. This was an innings built on the back of a strong training session mid week. Only a throw from the boundary to run him out was going to dismiss him. Great support from Peter Unerkov who played an important team role.
Angas Marshall 7*
Harry Edmonds 16*
Special mention to Sam Lucas, Liam Nichol & Jack Read from the whites who spent most of the day in support of the reds, much appreciated!!

U16 Whites match report

 U16 Whites  Comments Off on U16 Whites match report
Dec 202016

 After losing the toss, the 16 Whites batted first at Ford Oval. Some very good bowling from Glenelg saw 3 wickets fall early on, and our innings needed some rebuilding. Sam Lucas and Jack Read (17) steadied the ship with a 30 run partnership, and then Max Floreani (11) joined Lucas to add another 27 runs before he was bowled by one that kept low. At 5/69 in the 24th over, another solid partnership was required and Sam Lucas and Will Rice duly delivered. They kept the scoreboard ticking over with some good running between the wickets and put away any bad balls from the Glenelg bowlers. Rice was eventually out for 24 while trying to lift the run rate, before Sam Lucas was run out for a well-made 37. Some late hitting from Ben Belperio (13 not out) and Will Cowling (5 not out) took the final score to 7/140 from our 40 overs, which was a good effort after being 3/13.

 Quick wickets would make this a difficult chase, but despite excellent opening spells from Max Monfries and Max Floreani, we couldn’t get the breakthroughs we were looking for. Mitch George and Ben Belperio continued to keep things tight, and at drinks Glenelg were 0/48 after 20 overs. Jack Konnis snared the first wicket thanks to a good running catch by Mitch George at deepish midwicket, but from there the 2 Glenelg batsmen stepped it up, and at 1/97 in the 29th over things were starting to get a little worrying. A superb piece of fielding from Jack Read created a run out, then Konnis took a caught & bowled next ball. 2 quick wickets to Will Cowling and another to Konnis reduced Glenelg to 6/107 and the match was evenly poised. Some lusty blows reduced the run chase down to Glenelg needing 16 runs to win off 5 overs, with 4 wickets in hand.

 Ben Belperio came back into the attack and immediately took a wicket – 13 runs required off 4 overs, with 3 wickets remaining. Max Monfries and Belperio bowled well, but couldn’t get another wicket. The chase was down to 6 run needed off the last 2 overs, with still 3 wickets in hand. Glenelg were definitely in the box seat, but Monfries bowled a superb 39th over and only conceded 1 run. This left the last over in the hands of Ben Belperio – a wicket off the 1st ball was followed by 3 singles. 2 balls left, 2 runs to win, 2 wickets remaining. Belperio then took another wicket, leaving Glenelg with 2 runs to win off the last ball. Their number 11 swung and missed, the batsmen took off for the tying run and Liam Nichol coolly ran up and removed the bails to complete the run out and secure a nail biting victory. Wickets were shared between Ben Belperio 3/22 (8 overs), Jack Konnis 3/41 (8 overs) and Will Cowling 2/28 (6 overs), but there were also important spells from Max Monfries (0/9 from 8 overs) and Max Floreani (0/16 from 6 overs). The fielding was very sharp in the last 20 overs, and played a big part in the win. Overall, this was a fantastic effort from the whole team in a pressure situation!

U16 Reds V Glenelg – Round 6

 U16 Reds  Comments Off on U16 Reds V Glenelg – Round 6
Dec 192016
The second place browns took on the 4th place Glenelg at Adelaide High School. This was anticipated to be a cracking game featuring a number of talented cricketers on both sides. For this game we welcomed back a number of first XI school players and selection was extremely difficult in attempting to accommodate everyone.

For this game, our regular soccer match for warm up was taken to a new level with the addition of former Adelaide United premiership star Bruce Djite who addressed the boys at the start of the day and then had a ” kick” with the boys as well. Needless to say Glenelg were in awe of our star attraction.

Back to cricket and Glenelg won the toss and sent us in. All reports gave the impression it was a high scoring track and Glenelg’s success has been on the back of strong early batting. I asked the boys to consider a winning target and again we set ourselves reaching 200. Peter Unerkov and Tom Van der Juegd put on a very healthy 46 for the first wicket and laid the platform for our strong middle order to keep the scoring going.

At times our run rate ebbed between around 3 to 4.5 runs an over. With the loss of a couple of quick wickets, Angus Marshall joined Peter at the crease and the pair got the scoring going again. Angus made a solid 23 before being dismissed. Our middle order stumbled and we lost 4/17 at a crucial time of the game. Peter Unerkov played the perfect opening batsmen role making 67 (103 balls) before getting out. His development in recent matches has been a joy to watch and he continues to grow in confidence each week. Hamish Gitsham was elevated up the order and joined Luke Pedlar at the crease. This combination took the game away from Glenelg. Their running between wickets was professional like and anything loose was punished. The pair put on 65 for the seventh wicket and helped ensure we would make 200. Hamish finished an outstanding 42* (37 balls) and Luke a masterful 32 (28 balls) Luke’s last two innings have been real ” team” scores and now looks at home controlling our middle order. Glenelgs fielding struggled with missed fields and over throws as Hamish and Luke applied more and more pressure. This was quality cricket.
Kensington 8/202

I’ve never personally seen a game with Hamish Gitsham in it where he doesn’t take at least two weeks so the expectation was high that he would provide the early break through. When Will Warrick took a great catch at second slip to dismiss the dangerous Isaac Higgins for a duck , it started a rout that Glenelg couldn’t halt. Hamish finished with the ever impressive figures of 4/13 and was well backed up by the ever reliable Darcy Hunkin (1/12). When Liam Greber dismissed the strong Harry Chandler, Glenelg had lost the last of their recognised top order. Lachie Parker (2/2) and Will McGowan (2/9) were way to strong for the Glenelg lower order finishing the match out in only 22 overs. No one could have predicted this outcome and not in 22 overs.  I have to applaud this outfit on a number of key attributes. Firstly our running between wickets was at the highest standard I’ve seen in junior cricket. Secondly catching… Will Warrick, Darcy Hunkin and of course Tom VDJ all took outstanding catches behind the stumps. Thirdly, our bowling. We simply bowled straight. This was a clinical display and some of these boys are now taking their game to a higher level. It’s not only impressive to watch, but a privilege as well.

Hi All,

With both 2nd grade teams not able to make the Grand Final, the 1st Grade stand alone this week. A tough weekend last week as both 2nd Grade teams battled a lack of numbers. Both had only 7 for the 1st game with the 2nd game no better. Unfortunately the lack of numbers told with the Browns losing in the 19th Over against Northern with only 7 players. Interestingly only a month ago we loaned Northern's fielders when they were short in the 40 Over game. No reciprocation last week.

1ST Grade V Southern Districts at Park 25 #3 on SATURDAY 17TH DECEMBER. Game starts at 11:50. Ready for warm ups by 11:00. Southern Districts are the home team.

U16 Reds V Northern Districts – Round 5

 General  Comments Off on U16 Reds V Northern Districts – Round 5
Dec 132016

For the Kensington U16 Reds round 5 match we took on Northern Districts at home at Marryatville. With the 16 whites winning on forfeit it was going to be difficult to get everyone a game for 2 weeks. With a team plan to bowl first, we were surprised to be sent into bat by Northerns’. Nevertheless every good team must have a plan B and yet again we were committed in our aim of making 250+ with the bat. A couple of early wickets saw Christian Leddicoat come to the crease and he looked his usual commanding self.  With the fall of the third wicket he was joined by Henry Rice and the pair proceeded to take the game away from Northern’s bowlers. Whilst Christian’s efforts fluctuated between elegant and brutal, Henry looked unflappable at the other end. There are some similarities here to Mark Waugh when it comes to Henry. At times he makes it look way to easy. Since his debut in the reds in round 3 he is averaging an “ok “ 146.00 with the bat!! He can field, and bowl as well – a true all-rounder. Henry went on to compile a masterful 74 from 92 deliveries. Christian, after a brief time out with heat stress resumed his innings on 48 and didn’t take long to put another 50 on his books. He was eventually out for 57. 

Luke Pedlar showed class with a well-constructed 33 and good support from Peter Unerkov with a developing 22. Liam Greber and Sam Burgess smashed 19 runs off the last over to hit our target of 250. 8/254 dec .  Kensie had a few overs at Northern’s on day 1 and almost had one wicket, but it wasn’t to be. Northern’s 0/13 at stumps.

Day 2:

At 10am on the morning of  day 2, I received word that we had lost Sam Burgess to a broken hand. A good story but only Sam’s to tell! One bowler down, a few overs in and we lost another with young Caleb Hoberg injuring his back. Never fear, two fast bowlers down and still the team rallied together. This gave opportunity for other boys to get valuable overs. Whilst the usual suspects performed as normal, Peter Unerkov got his first bowl in the reds and was  excellent with 1/9 from 6 overs. Will Quigley Smith was on a hat trick and finished with impressive figures of 2/12 and joining him was the reliable Liam Greber with 2/18 off 11 overs back to full condition. But the main man was Christian Leddicoat with 3/7 off 4 overs. He got his length right and Northern’s middle order couldn’t cope. A really great all round performance. Northern’s all out 88

They say catches win matches, but they do more than that.  The really good ones lifts a team and the energy of the group. Darcy Hunkin fielding at first slip took a true genuine “screamer” to dismiss Northern’s dangerous Deakin Davis. The batsman couldn’t believe Hunkin had grabbed it and didn’t walk at first but was politely told OUT.


Down 2 bowlers, everyone a little weary and time against us it was a team decision to give a couple of boys another bat. Liam Nicol found confidence with a nicely made 16* AND Tom Van Der Juegd looked great until he skied one and was out. Kensington 1/28 declared


In reply we were able to take 3x Northern wickets, with weary legs, Northerns 3/67.

I’m most impressed with the spirit in the team and we stay 2nd on the ladder –massive game this weekend against the dangerous Glenelg. This is a game which will show where we really stand in the competition.

U16 Reds V West Torrens – round 4

 U16 Reds  Comments Off on U16 Reds V West Torrens – round 4
Nov 202016

Four games into the season and to date a total of 22 players have taken the field in the U16 reds. For this game we welcomed back some cricket firepower in Arham Hashmi, James Du Preez, and Christian Leddicoat from the seniors. West Torrens are a really good team that haven’t been able to win to date. We weren’t planning to be their first season scalp.

The team decision was to bowl first and although we lost the toss, West Torrens decision to bat gave us our choice on a classic warm afternoon just made for cricket. First over and James Du Preez struck with a magic first up delivery. From the other end Caleb Hoberg found rhythm and took a wicket thanks to a very sharp catch to Henry Rice at square leg.
All the bowlers did there job. In fact the ten wickets were shared amongst 6 bowlers. Darcy Hunkin continued his good form from the previous game taking 2/10 and taking his season tally to 12 wickets. Will Quigley Smith (2/19) took valuable middle order wickets and Caleb Hoberg finished with impressive figures of 2/4. James Du Preez was intimidating at times and finished with 2/16. 
The talk in the field was impressive and team work equally impressive. Special mention to Liam Nicol who was superb behind the stumps after being given a working over by our pace bowlers. His stumping to Will Quigley Smith was effortless.
West Torrens all out 70.

With a batting line up that went all the way down to 11, there weren’t to many worries from the sidelines chasing 70 to win. A very solid opening partnership between Arham and Peter Unerkov laid the batting foundation before Peter was out on the team score of 34. Christian Leddicoat joined  Arham at the crease and the two power hitters got us to 70 in the 15th over. Looking to push on we faltered losing some quick wickets and were suddenly 4/96. Arham Hashmi fell for 45 when he looked like a 100 was his for the day. We again lost some cheap middle order wickets and were 6/120 when the in form Henry Rice joined James Du Preez at the crease. The pair put on a brilliant 79 for the 7th wicket. Both players combined classic stroke play with the occasional power shot. James eventually fell on 59 off 63 deliveries and showed what a quality cricketer he is. Henry Rice finished on an outstanding 40* off 40 balls. With only 3x boundaries in his innings he has proven how easy it is to build a score  without always having to find the boundary. This was a classy effort. Our aim was for 200, and we made 206! Great effort. A big thank you to everyone on great team spirit and a positive attitude.
Overall Kensington reds remain in the top 4 – well done to everyone on a really good team effort. Enjoy the test match and the week off.
