His efforts included two 9x wicket matches which resulted in outright victories against Port Adelaide and Tea Tree Gully. His best bowling of 6/14 is his Kensington career best. He was well supported by Liam Greber ( 18 wkts @ 10.8) and Will McGowan ( 14 wkts @ 11.6 ) All three bowlers finished in the top 9 of the competition. Well done to Darcy on very consistent season.

U16 Reds Round 11 V Woodville Report

Mar 052017
The final round of the premiership season saw the Reds take on arguably the most consistent team in the comp, Woodville who were fourth on the table. Up for grabs was the minor premiership and a win would ensure a home final. With some last minute illness and injury in the 16s squad the Reds were forced to play day 1 with 10 players. This is always a challenge and knowing we had an extra batsmen for day 2 Jack Konnis won the toss and sent Woodville in taking a large gamble.

Woodville came out aggressively with the bat turning lots of ones into twos. Our bowlers stayed strong and the fielders worked over time. An early wicket to Darcy Hunkin then another to Ben Belperio had the game even. Woodville were strong through the middle order and a great caught and bowled to Liam Greber tilted the game our way. Very tight bowling from U14 debutant Sam Warrick saw him take his first wicket in the 16s and this was followed by a lucky run out. The Woodville tail started to hit out and where we hoped to keep them to 180, 200 quickly approached. Their scoring was halted by Liam Greber taking the final three wickets to finish with 4/34 off 11 overs. A wicket also to Jack Read through an absolute classic outfield catch to Jack Konnis saw Woodville all out 213. Kensington blocked out 2 overs late on day 1.

Day 2 started carefully with the bat and the team were given clear targets through out the innings. Getting to 100 by tea was one and we achieved that 3/103 at tea. An 82 run partnership between Henry Rice & Jack Konnis was broken when Henry was tragically run out for 37. Henry had worked overtime for his runs and found some form at the right time of the season . From there Kensington had small partnerships and at 6/162 the game was in the balance. 

With Jack Konnis unstoppable at one end Jack Read came to the crease  and after a very shaky start, Woodville could smell victory. 170, 180 came and still needing 4-5 runs an over Jack Read hit out. His 7x fours and 2x sixes changed the game in a heart beat. Woodville had blinked and the game was gone. Jack hung on long enough to get to 51 off 31 entertaining deliveries. Jack Konnis kept pushing towards 100 and was caught and bowled on 79. Jacks last month has seen him score 50, 63, 117* and 69. 
This was an incredible victory. From 3/37, to finish 9/250 was sensational. Great contributions from Peter Unerkov (14) and Tom Van der Juegd (21) helped support the run chase. Now it’s semi finals. And we face Woodville again. The semi final will be a great one. CONGRATULATIONS MINOR PREMIERS

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*

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.

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 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.

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.

U16 Reds V Port Adelaide – Round 3

 U16 Reds  Comments Off on U16 Reds V Port Adelaide – Round 3
Nov 132016

Three games into the season and the Reds welcomed seven new players on Reds debut. The challenge sometimes in games you expect to win is that your work rate isn’t as high and there is an expectation that victory will just happen. That couldn’t be further from the truth in this game.

We talked of the potential for outright victory if we worked hard enough and achieved it in convincing style. Winning the toss Jack Konnis sent Port into bat and Caleb Hoberg got us off to a great start. He took two early wickets bowling great line and length and Port were 2/13. His second wicket saw a screaming catch taken overhead by Luke Pedlar at second slip. This lifted the team and set a really great tone. Every team needs a leader with the bat and also with ball. Darcy Hunkin has assumed the leadership role of the bowling attack and not to be outdone took two quick wickets. Max Floreani was very tight and was rewarded with a wicket and wild thing Sam Burgess when he wasn’t scaring the batsmen chipped in also. The last three wickets fell in 9 deliveries. Darcy got his third finishing with great figures of 3/11 of 9.5 overs. Will Quigley Smith took the last two to finish with 2/8. The team work and talk was impressive and seven of the nine wickets were bowled or LBW highlighting our bowling accuracy.

Chasing 63 runs with 41 overs left in the day we lost an early wicket and were 1/10. Luke Pedlar joined Peter Unerkov at the crease and the pair made batting look easy. When Luke fell to a full toss a mini collapse followed . Losing 4/13 and sitting at a team score of 5/48, suddenly runs were hard to find. Henry Rice joined Sam Burgess at the crease and the pair put on a very impressive  51* for the sixth wicket. As we limped past 63, suddenly the runs opened up and Henry Rice took full advantage. He finished on an impressive 32* off 25 deliveries and was well supported by Sam Burgess 17*(30) who did very well to bat through some trying overs when wickets were falling around him.

The declaration came with 5/99 on the board and that left us with 6 overs for the day. We wanted one wicket, two would be nice. Caleb Hoberg strolled in and first ball a wicket. With ball in hand for the last over of the day Darcy got our second wicket. Port 2/19 at stumps day one. It’s a nice feeling going home day one with the points already in the bag but we still had a job to do day two.
With rain hanging around and a shower just before play, getting the outright wasn’t going to be easy. Darcy took a wicket in the first over of the day. From there it was the Darcy Hunkin show. He finished with 6/14 off 8 magic overs. His match figures were 9/25. He was a finger tip away from having 10 wickets. Great support from Will Quigley Smith who took a great diving catch and got the vital last wicket as rain began to fall again. I was really impressed with our fielding. We caught literally everything that came at us and the game was over before the first drinks break.

U16 Reds V Sturt – Round 2

Oct 302016
Is there any better rivalry in junior premier cricket than Kensington V Sturt? I’m not sure there is. With more changes again this week to the team due to school & senior cricket selections, Jack Konnis took over the captaincy and lead from the front. His efforts in the field were inspiring. His leadership lifted the team.
Winning the toss on a magic looking Ford Oval we were always going to bat first. The emphasis at training this week from Greg, was ” intent” . We must show more intent with the bat and wow what a turn around. A new look opening partnership of Jack Konnis and Arham Hashmi got us off to a flyer before Jack copped an awful LBW decision. That brought the in form Harry Edmonds to the crease. Between Harry and Arham developed one of the better U16 partnerships you will ever see. Their 95 run second wicket partnership was magic to watch. Arham eventually fell on 79 at a run a ball, while Harry batted through injury and cramp to see out the innings with a majestic 56*. Both Harry and Arham played incredibly mature innings. Both boys were sheer class at the crease.
With the batting start we had the team talked of setting a target of 200 . It is always difficult to come in late and start hitting out but Liam Nichol showed how it is done. His 25*off 16 balls was majestic to watch and his efforts helped ensure we reached 3/205.

With 200 on the board you have to always expect to win. With a cameo appearance from Kensington big quick Hamish Gitsham , Hamish had Sturt’s top order in tatters at 2/2 from his first over of the innings. Cricket is a funny game at times and yet again we were left to struggle through the middle overs. Sturt’s  third wicket partnership of 100+ rattled our field and we searched for answers. The talk in the field stopped and some questions were asked of our Attack .As always the ever reliable Will McGowan broke through taking both the big wickets in quick time to ensure Sturt would never seriously challenge our 205. Sturt’s lower order continued to swing the bat in hope and some very tight overs from Darcy Hunkin (1/26) and Arham Hashmi (1/5) who both put the ball on the spot ensured victory was ours. This was a well deserved victory for the Browns. This win came on the back of a really strong training session last Wednesday, let’s keep the intensity up at training.

U16 Reds V East Torrens – Round 1

 U16 Reds  Comments Off on U16 Reds V East Torrens – Round 1
Oct 252016

After winning the toss The 16 Reds put East Torrens into bat on a wind swept Roma Mitchell pitch. With Will McGowan on fire down wind ET were 3/16 and our decision seemingly justified. A 94 run partnership hurt us in the middle of the innings and we couldn’t stop Ryan King from reaching 100. In total I believe we had 5 opportunities to get him out and missed. Jack Konnis came on and bowled very tight and consistent and got the big wicket of King and ET suddenly had lost 3/6. A few dropped catches and some other near misses saw ET reach 196 all out. Will McGowan finished with 4/47 and Jack Konnis 3/31. At stumps we were 0/4. Despite some tough moments this was a score that was considered more than achievable. Day two didn’t start overly well. At 2/16 early in the run chase we desperately needed a strong partnership and it looked like we had one. Harry Edmonds looked at ease at the crease playing all around the wicket. At the other end Sam Rahaley looked strong and went on to top score with 34. When Harry fell for 23 things looked shaky. Loosing 3/2 when it mattered most in our middle order destroyed our run chase. A solid 23 from Liam Greber late in the innings gave us some hope and the ever reliable Liam Winskill (16) also worked hard to rescue the innings late but we couldn’t stop the wickets falling. Kensington all out 145 – lost by 51 runs. As mentioned at the end of the game it is important to consider our team mates at training and the emphasis this week will no doubt will be on improving our batting. Big game V Sturt this week.
