Congratulations to Kensington’s (CA XI) wrist spinner Lloyd Pope (17 yo) who yesterday won the leading wicket taker award for the U19 National Championships held over the past fortnight in Adelaide (with 21 wickets @16.3 including 6/21 off 5.5 v SA and 6/29 off 9 v QLD), backing up his winning of the equivalent leading wicket taker award for the U17 National Championships in Oct (SA U17s) where he took 18 wickets. This is officially the first time that any Australian bowler has won this award for both the U17 & U19 National Championships in the same year.

Lloyd’s notables this season so far include:

  • U17 National Championships (SA) – 18 wickets. Leading Wicket Taker
  • U17 National Championships (SA) – 2nd Most Valuable Player of Tournament
  • U17 National Championships (SA) – Team Of The Championships, selection
  • U19 National Championships (CA XI) – 21 wickets. Leading Wicket Taker
  • U19 National Championships (CA XI) – 3rd (equal) Most Valuable Player of Tournament
  • U19 National Championships (CA XI) – Team Of The Championships, selection
  • U19 National Championships (CA XI) – Ricky Ponting XII U17 T20 (Team to play SCG BBL curtain raiser on Dec 27 against Adam Gilchrist’s XII U19 T20 Team)
  • Cricket Australia Gold Pathway

Lloyd Interviewed – for video click HERE

Cricket Australia’s Pathway has offered Lloyd some wonderful opportunities to “value add” onto his recent success including meeting Shane Warne during the recent Adelaide Test Match and doing a 30 minute session with Shane on the Adelaide Oval prior to play, being selected to play at the SCG on Dec 27 and being invited to attend the CA Pathway Camp in Jan in Brisbane.

Lloyd has also taken 14 wickets for Kensington so far this season in various A Grade formats. Congratulations Lloyd from the Club on your season’s achievements to date!

Congratulations to Kensington U17 players:

  • Adam Clements
  • Ashley Eckermann
  • John Bliss
  • Lloyd Pope
  • Sean McCullum

selected for the Country Black Team.

Special congratulations to Sean McCullum for receiving both the Batting & Keeping Trophies and the MVP during the recent U16 Country Carnival.

Players for the country teams were selected based on their performances at the carnival last year and at the recently completed SACA U16 Country Cup. Throughout the week of the U16 Country Cup, SACA Talent Coordinator, Luke Williams, and the rest of his team were closely monitoring and evaluating players’ performances and results. Furthermore, they will continue to do so throughout the fortnight of the U17 Shield as well, as they look to state selections for the SACA U19 squad in the 2016-17 season.

The SACA Under 17 Shield will be played from Monday, 4 to Thursday, 14 January 2016 across Adelaide. Teams will play seven One-Day (50-overs) matches and then one Grand Final on the last day of the event. The competition will consist of 16 teams – 12 Premier Club teams, a SACA U15 team, a team from SAMCA and the two country representative teams.

The SACA would like to congratulate all the above players on their well deserved selection into these two country teams. ”

By Graeme Klemm – U16W Team Manager

It’s a good thing I like movies because season 2013-14 provided endless viewing of all manner of shows. We’ve had the disaster movie against Southern Districts when we lost four early wickets in the blink of an eye; the raw excitement of the high octane action comeback against Tea Tree Gully when James Ingram refused to let defeat stare him down; the epic biopic against Adelaide when Will Taylor and James Cleggett put on their massive opening partnership; the Alfred Hitchcock horror classic against Prospect when 18 wickets fell in a day; the uplifting and feel good flick against East Torrens when we had 8 personnel changes to the team but still came out on top; the car crash spine tingler against Sturt; the outrageous bank heist when Port Adelaide robbed us of the 7.5 points we needed to make the finals. But like the old cliche says, the projectionist saved the best one ‘til last…

The all time, gut churning thriller that left Jono Connelly ashen faced and terror frozen as he waited on death row, minute by minute, ball by ball for an excruciating 16 overs as a ninth wicket partnership changed the course of history and the Titanic made it to New York after all. Jacob Roberts and Henry Klemm pulled not just a rabbit, but a unicorn out of the hat to steal a game that we had no right to win. At 8 for 108 and chasing 162, history suggested that we would have been lucky to reach 110. But cricket is a funny game, about taking chances and forging partnerships It’s about ounces of luck and living dangerously. It’s about seizing opportunities. Cooper Harrod, Jacob Roberts and John Bliss had put us in good seats the week before with their fine bowling. It wasn’t just them, but they got the jaffas. And after the week-long intermission, it came down to the efforts of 4 boys who decided that the peanut brittle that had defined our batting this season had finally run out. Sam Barnett shone brightly, early, and then Luke Valente and John Bliss put on an impressive 64 run partnership in the middle that had us around the runrate. But the carnage that followed their wickets left us reeling. The magicians at 10 and eleven then conjured one final trick to leave Glenelg stunned and shattered and still unsure how it had all slipped away. With a run rate of almost 6 an over, it was 91 golden, precious runs from a captain courageous (Jacob) and a nervous nelly (Henry) that had faced less than a dozen balls for the entire season until his arrival at the crease.

As the credits roll on a season that had felt like a roller coaster ride, thanks to all those boys who walked through the revolving door of the U16 Whites. A great bunch of players, respectful to me, their Baggy Brown cap and their team mates. The club has a bright future with young men of this calibre coming through. They may not be superstars, but they definitely provide the heart and soul.
