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 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!

U14 Reds Semi Final Day 2

After batting last week and setting an excellent total of 190 with a superb not out century to Will Montgomery and great support from Tully Kennett, our job this week was to bowl well and take wickets early to put the Adelaide batters under scoreboard pressure. Captain Will Montgomery had a plan to their opener and so we started with Hamish and Will Warrick with 2 gullies and 2 slips.

The Adelaide batters started aggressively, clearly with a plan to go hard and try to establish some pressure on us. The plan went their way for the first 4 overs as they drove hard and well, until they decided to test our fielding standard. Step up Zac Norris with a pin point throw and opener number 2 was on his way.

Then the second gully plan worked with an excellent catch by Luke Pedlar and their key opener was in the shed too. What appeared to be a super catch at 1st slip by Angas Marshall had the umpires giving the benefit of the doubt to the batter (it has taken all season for that to happen) but then a couple more wickets, one to Max Floreani and one to Sam Bruce and at tea Adelaide 4 for 82 still needing 109 off 30 overs.

After 41 overs Adelaide were looking for over 5 an over but, with their skipper going really well and accelerating the scoring, things weren’t going all our way. We badly need to break the building partnership! A drinks break brought back Hamish and the wicket to break the partnership that threatened us. Shortly after, Will Warrick knocked over their skipper. Another wicket to San Bruce, one to Will McGowan and excellent fielding again contributing with another run out (to Jack Konnis) and then a blinder of a catch at short cover by Will Warrick!

Suddenly it was all over – Adelaide all out for 125 in 57overs. Bowling was shared around, Hamish Gitsham 1/34 off 11, Will Warrick 2/15 off 9, Will McGowan 1/19 off 10, Max Floreani 1/11 off 5, Sam Bruce 2/17 off 10, Will Montgomery 0/10 off 5 and Jack Konnis 1/5 off 2. Player of the Match Will Montgomery.

An excellent all round performance from the boys setting us up for a super Grand Final against great rivals Sturt. If we play as we have all season and do the basics well we can be confident of a fitting end to the season.

Good luck boys – Go Browns!!!

By Grahame Spence

Please see below brief summary from U14 Reds season.

17 players went through the U 14 red team during the year and it was a fantastic season and very well done with the team playing off in the Grand final but unfortunately not quite getting the win against a very good West Torrens outfit.

Performances were excellent with many highlights and the team lost only the

1 minor round game during the season.

We had 5 Players scored in excess of 150 Runs of which 2 scored over 200 runs and then there was the amazing effort from Lucas Froude who topped the competition with 482 runs in 8 innings at an average of 69. This included 2 century’s at better than a run a ball.

The ability for Lucas to score from ball one and accelerate at will was a major highlight along with several great partnerships at critical times.

The Bowling was also fantastic all season both from a wicket taking perspective and the ability to keep pressure on opposition sides with great line, length and variety which was very pleasing.

Kensington had 3 bowlers in the top ten wicket takers with Adam Clements finishing third with 21 wickets at the fantastic Economy rate of 1.76 and one 5 wicket game. Oliver Harms had a great year with some standout moments and took two 5 wicket hauls whilst scaring many opposition with sheer pace.

 

Five bowlers took 10 + wickets which was testament to the depth and consistency, with Ben Cox 16 wickets, Oliver 15 wickets , Ashley Eckermann and Luke Valente 11 wickets each.

Our catching and out cricket also was at a very high level particular some of the catches taken close to the bat and in slips.

The other pleasing aspect was the way the team was captained in that we had this shared amongst Adam Clements , Lucas Froude and Jed Spence who all showed a great maturity and some real insight on how to set fields , lead from the front by performance and intent and be creative and brave when required with their field settings which for most matches were excellent of which in particular the Sturt game stood out when undue pressure brought out the best from the team and particular the field and bowling changes at critical times .

Two players who are in the younger age group , Will Montgomery and Tom VanderJeugd showed what talent they have both having very good first up seasons and keep us very optimistic about these young men’s future cricket prospects and both earned the honours of representing SA.

Kensington also had 8 players selected and playing in the inaugural Premier league competition representing Eastern Edge and winning the carnival. All boys making contributions to the success. Several others also competed for the Country sides also showing the strength and depth of talent Kensington has at this age group.

The coaching and mentoring from Ben Johnswood was fantastic as he challenged and consistently improved many players from the start to the finish of the season and we were well blessed with many great contributors on Match day with Peter Froude coaching and assisting with his valuable cricket knowledge and many parents more than willing to share other duties match day.

All in all a very pleasing and successful season bar being 1 win away from a premiership , but the boys doing he Kensington brand a great level of respect and representation.
