The Women’s A grade T20 season got underway at Parkinson on Sunday under threatening skies against a threatening Northern Districts side. We won the toss and decided to bat. Openers Bridget Patterson and Katelyn Pope had us off to a great start scoring at more than a run a ball. Popey was extremely unlucky to be run out with a throw from the boundary breaking the stumps. Popey had made 17 off 21 in an opening stand of 37. Fortunately Bridget Patterson was continuing her fine form with the bat with some excellent shot making. Combining with returning Malaysian recruit, Winnie Duraisingam, the third wicket put on a crucial 30 runs with Winnie falling in the 17th over for 13 with the score on 95, and Bridget on 49. Bridget let loose in the final 3 overs, and finished with a beautifully compiled 62 not out from 50 balls. A strong finish saw us reach a score of 4/112. The only sour note was Jordan Doecke injuring her ankle scampering through for a single on the last ball of the innings, and being unable to take any further part in the game.
Fortunately Bridget was able to take Jordan’s keeping gloves, and with the B Golds playing after us, Taylah Lewis was able to sub field for side.
Northern set about the run chase in aggressive style, and were up with our early fast-pace run scoring, with reigning Karen Rolton medallist, Tegan McPharlin, in particularly fine form. Fortunately Winnie came on and bowled Tegan, slowing Northern’s run rate. Northern then settled, and they scored at a similar rate to us. There was some patchy fielding, but a catch on the boundary from Katelyn Pope saw the dangerous Hannah Perry dismissed and we were again back on track. Some tight bowling, coupled with solid fielding from a well-set field saw us hold on for a nail-biting win, Northern falling 5 runs short to be 5/107 at the end of their 20 overs.
The B Golds followed the A’s against Sturt, and were feeling confident following their strong win against Port the previous week. However, they would have to do it without Kelly Armstrong who had been promoted to the A’s this week. Twin Hannah opened with Taylah Lewis after we won the toss and batted. Unfortunately Taylah fell in the first over with the score on 8. Captain Vic Neale joined Hannah and they managed to put away the loose balls, scoring at a steady rate. Some steady bowling in the middle overs from Sturt saw Vic (10) and Hannah (35) lose their wickets, and we were 3/52 after 13 overs. Emily Armstrong joined Georgia Iannella, and they put on 51 runs in the final 7 overs to post a competitive 103, Emily run out on the last ball of the innings for a well compiled 21 at more than a run a ball, and Georgia remaining 16 not out.
Sturt started the run chase cautiously, against some steady bowling, but a crucial 56 run 3rd wicket partnership saw them home with 5 overs to spare.

The second round of the Ray Sutton Shield was at Prospect Oval with Kensington playing Prospect on an overcast, potentially thunderstorm interrupted afternoon.
Prospect won the toss and batted.
The Brown boys were led by Will Warrick for the day and he and opening partner in crime, Liam Greber, bowled immaculately and had Prospect quickly under serious pressure with an early wicket for Liam and this was followed by scoreboard pressure.
Will Montgomery then came on and kept it tight at one end while Sam Bruce put on a textbook of off spin bowling at the other end. He took 3 for 15 off 8 overs. and then just for a bit of extra ice cream, he threw the stumps down for a run out.
Luke Pedlar and Alex Wakeham were very tidy as well in the middle overs bowling a good length and line.
Prospect finished on 5 / 114.
Not one wide was bowled and the fielding and keeping ( Jack Bear ) was first class.
It was time for the Brown batsmen to do their stuff. Jack Bear and Tully Kennett took some shine off the pill before Jack was out after 9 overs.
Will Montgomery joined Tully and they began in a similar vein to last week, taking plenty of singles and punishing the bad balls. Tully was out for 24 (exhausted from his 3 figures the day before)
Luke Pedlar came in and batted impressively punishing any bad balls.
Sam Rahaley joined Will and they put on a terrific partnership. Sam batted very maturely and hit the ball to all parts. He finished with 48 including 2 hefty belts for 6.
Will Montgomery was out for an accomplished 87 off 98 balls in the last over, trying in vain for his ton.
Kensington had powered to 5 /191. A great win.
The first round of the Ray Sutton Shield brought together Kensington and East Torrens on a beautiful afternoon at the magnificent Colonel Waite Oval. All the Brown boys were very excited and ably coached by Liam Scanlon.
Will Montgomery was captain for the day and won the toss. Kensington were batting.
East Torrens bowled well early on and Jack Bear got a good one.
This brought Will Montgomery in to join Tully Kennett. These 2 then put on 139 runs, with an outstanding return to cricket for Tully of 70 off 125 balls and a well compiled 58 off 74 balls to Will. It was wonderful risk free cricket with great running between wickets and constant pressure on the bowlers and the field.
Luke Pedlar and Sam Rahaley gave it a bit of stick at the end and the Browns ended with 164 /4 off their 40 overs.
East Torrens were soon up against it and lost early wickets and apart from a reasonable 3rd wicket partnership were all out for 107.
The opening bowlers were magnificent. Will Warrick took 4 for 8 off 7 overs and Liam Greber 3 for 20 off 8 overs.
Will Montgomery and Alex Wakeham were good support acts with Will taking 1 for 5 off 6 overs and Alex 1 for 14 off 5 overs.
Sam Bruce served up his usual tidy 8 overs and was very unlucky not to get a wicket. He can bowl every ball in the off spinners trick bag and is great to watch.
Jack Bear was terrific with the gloves behind the stumps and on a long hot afternoon, he was as solid as a rock.
Well Done Brown Boys – a great start
Report from Rory Montgomery
Things were looking bleak for the A Grade on the brink of lunch with the Bay 0/109. Openers Alex Carey and Cullen Bailey were finding the gaps at will and taking the attack to the bowlers. We pegged things back a little in the second hour, though Carey did hit Jake Brown for an enormous six into the Glenelg Oval grandstand. Some old-time grade cricket buffs who were at the ground said that it was the largets six seen at the ground since WWII.
With just two overs to go before lunch, Elliot Opie got a reverse-swinging ball through Bailey’s defences to rattle the pegs. He then snicked up Joel Garrett two balls later. 2/109. Daniel Worrall had to deal with a sandshoe blowout in a mixed opening spell but returned to the bowling crease and delivered a perfectly directed bouncer at Carey. The top edge flew down to Elliot at fine leg who pulled off a brilliant lunging catch, inches off the ground. 3/109 at lunch and we were back in the hunt.
The drama continued after the break with Elliot finding an edge from Ben Bullimore with the first ball of the session. 4/0! Elliot then struck Johan Botha a nasty blow on the helmet and he had to retire hurt. The Bays were reeling and our bowlers turned the screws. All out 169 (Opie 4, Worrall 2, Panelli 2, van den Bergh 1, Brown 1). It was an excellent turnaround. The players didn’t get frustrated even with things not going out way and a couple of catches going down, holding their nerve and having faith that they would turn it around.
Nick Mosey (26) and John Dalton negotiated a probing opening spell from Chadd Sayers, putting on 40 for the first wicket. Dalts then combined with skipper Jake Brown for an unbroken 91 run stand which steered us to 1/131 at stumps. Dalts is unbeaten on 54 and Jake on 49. “I slogged well,” Browny remarked after the game about his innings.
The B Grade bowlers put together a disciplined display to restrict Glenelg to 174 at Parkinson Oval. Jordan Leiman, returned from a camping trip to the Grampians, soon found his rhythm and took 4 wickets.
Our reply started poorly with wickets tumbling, including skipper Simon Schwerdt for a duck. If Simon was disappointed with his caught behind decision, believing that he hadn’t got near the ball, he was absolutely ropeable when batting partner Hugh Cranendonk later announced that he thought he’d smashed it.
At 4/29 we were in deep trouble but Sam McNeil (30*) and Sam Williams (32*) took us safely to stumps. 4/94 with 81 runs required for the win. Twinkie hit a large six into the Dean Waugh poplars and Garf took time out to sledge the opposition’s 16 year old first change bowler.
The C Grade also bowled first and were pretty clinical on a flat wicket. Scott Aufderheide got the ball rolling with the first wicket then Nick Palmer chipped in with a couple. Freshly arrived Pom Harry Allen got his first wicket for the club, and lbw with a perfectly pitched arm ball. At four wickets down we were in control and Kogo Fujiki kept the momentum going our way with two wickets just before tea. Scott returned to the attack and grabbed two more of his own, with Glenelg 8/115 at tea. Eddy Greeves picked up the last two immediately after the break and the Bays were all out 125.
We lost a few wickets before stumps but Harry (13*) and Nick Palmer (12*) batted out the last 10 overs. We are 4/86 with 40 runs to get.
The D Grade started well thanks to a 63-run opening stand between Henry Dall (25) and Lucas Allen (46). Brayden Frost kept up the momentum with a hard-hitting 59 (his first senior half century) as did skipper Alex Buckby with a run-a-ball 28. The innings was anchored by James Duncan who made 73 and was finally the last batter out with the total on 282.
The LOA’s reacted savagely to a week of media scrutiny, destroying Old Scotch by 10 wickets. We knocked them over for just 68 with James Iannucci and Daniel Subramaniam each taking 3 wickets. The Palmer Brothers got the runs without loss in just 9 overs. As Greg Quinn would say; a quick game’s a short game.
The Reds travelled to Bowker Oval on a sensational Spring day. With Will McGowan out injured, Angas Marshall took over the captaincy. He started well, winning the toss and electing to bat. New team members Alex Wakeham and Sam Rahaley sat down, looking forward to a good days cricket and maybe a hit at some stage. Angas and Tully Kennett strode out to bat on a slippery and bouncy hard wicket and put their heads down immediately. A slow outfield meant singles were critical and the boys needed to look for those opportunities to keep the scoreboard moving. Slowly they built an innings starting to put the occasional bad ball away and helped by a few wides from the bowlers. At tea Angas had moved on to 28 and Tully 44 – 0/95 was a wonderful foundation. After tea, Tully moved to a solid 50 and then passed the reigns to Angas. The score accelerated with both boys punishing bad balls and Angas moved through 50, 60 70 then 80 at a rapid rate. With the score on 0/198 Angas smashed a fullish ball at short cover and he held on to a hot catch to have Angas on his way for an excellent 91. Enter Will Montgomery who simply pushed singles to support Tully who then punished the ball to all parts of the ground. Tully batted superbly with hardly a false stroke and brought up his first ever century as he and Will took us to a wonderful 1/253 at stumps – Will finishing on 18no and Tully a quite brilliant 106no. Tully and Angas setting a Kensington U14 Red opening partnership along the way. Congratulations boys! Now, with half the job done its time to focus on our bowling and field for next week.
what looked like a green hard deck at Sacred Heart. Ollie Harms and
Adam Clements opened the bowling and much to our surprise Glenelg
started strong, attacking the ball and scoring quickly until Ollie
broke through in the 7th over thanks to a slick catch in slips by
Wessel van Wyke, they were 1/29.
Harrison Rahaley and Lloyd Pope joined the attack, the second
breakthrough came in Lloyd’s third over, luring the well settled
opener to lash out only to be caught by Sam Barnett, three balls later
the new batsmen was on his way back to the rooms clean bowled, Lloyd
was 2/7. Ashley Eckerman and John Bliss varied the pace, John playing
to his onside field dropped in a short ball and Hamish Porter took a
solid catch at deep backward square, at tea they were 4/112.
After tea, we tried a number of bowling variations, Hamish Porter
bowling with a number of different quicks with shorter spells trying
to unsettle their well established #5 Ricky Boschma, we had our
chances, dropping seven catches of varying degrees of difficulty.
Harrison with the next breakthrough clean bowling their #6 to break
the dangerous partnership. The next over, Lloyd clean bowls another,
three overs later gets another thanks to Wessel’s safe hands.
It’s not that the tail wagged, they survived and allowed Ricky to keep
the strike and keep the runs ticking over no matter what we through
down. Hamish was rewarded for a lengthy spell, bowling one of the
persistent blocking tail enders. It was then left to John Bliss to
upset the home team with a brilliant direct hit runout followed by
snaring the wicket of Boschma thanks to Euan running hard to take a
catch to close out their 196 run innings in the 67th over.
This exposed our openers to face one over to close out play for the
day, Sam and Euen always knew they would bat sometime in the day, Sam
faced six dot balls and alot of noise and calmly left the field.
Lloyd finishing with 4/26 off 12, John 2/13 off 6.1, Harrison, Ollie
and Hamish one each. With a team that can bat all the way through, a
thrilling run chase awaits next week.
Kensington U16 White round 2 vs Glenelg On a magnificent day at Marryatville High School, Kensington skipper Luke Valente won the toss and asked Glenelg to bat. David Hamann bowled a good opening spell to get the first wicket with 22 on the board. We then had to wait til the score reached 50 before Finn Hillberry broke through for his first wicket for Kensington in the 19th over. Ben Cox and Riley Slack then proceeded to strangle the Glenelg batsmen with really tight bowling and unfortunately a few dropped catches let the pressure off but only for a short time. At the end of the 12 over partnership the Bays were in tatters at 6/73 losing 4/19 in this spell. Skipper Luke Valente took over from the southern end to clean up the tail with 2/2 off 2.5 overs and Ben Cox completed his best return at under 16 level with 4/16 off of 11 overs. The end result was that Glenelg were all out for 81 We had 29 overs to bat for the day and it started poorly with Sam Carruthers gone in the first over with no score on the board. Runs were tough to come by but by the end of the 11th over we were in trouble at 4/34. Rory Illman and Fred McClure then started the rescue mission slowly edging towards the Glenelg total. A partnership of 24 was invaluable but on 58 disaster with Rory loosing concentration to the opening bowler and then 5 balls later the hero with the ball earlier Ben Cox was on his way without any addition to the score. Suddenly 6/58 and the Glenelg total was looking mountainous !! Stumps were drawn with the game evenly poised with our bowlers having to be the batsmen next week to beat the Bays !!

Great to see the numbers at training and the willingness of all to listen and learn. As i stated last week we have scheduled training to begin at 4pm for those able to make it. This gives us maximum time on the turf pitches and allows ALL players the opportunity to practise there. As the Junior boys arrive we move a group to the hard nets or to fielding practise. A point to remember for all players is that as we train only once per week it is up to each player to work on their game outside of training if they want to keep improving. If you have an issue that you want help with PLEASE ASK! We may not always pick things up when you are in the nets. We have a group of willing Coaches and Helpers that want every player at Kensington to improve and to do their best. Myself and Kevin Crosby are always willing to give advice. Amy Wiseman has recently completed a coaching course and is a current player who is an excellent coach. Please ask her for help. We also have another terrific coach in Gavin Lewis who as well as recently completing a LEVEL 2 coaching course (There is only 3 Levels) coaches teams at Athelstone. Gavin, as well as assisting and managing on game days, is full of great ideas and ever willing to help. He has a lot of cricket knowledge so PLEASE ASK FOR HELP IF YOU NEED IT. It's how you will improve. Good Luck this week

Captain Max Floreani won the toss and elected to bat but sadly we were 2/10 after 4 overs. Christian Leddicoat and Alex Wakeham steadied the ship putting on 50 runs in the next 15 overs before Alex was out for a well made 21. Sam Nicholls joined Christian and they added 66 more runs before Christian was retired for 54 and Sam was out chasing runs for 32, 5-131 probably 30 runs short but competitive. Alex Wakeham grabbed an early wicket and we were well on top. However we had a brain fade 4 overs were we dropped 5 easy chances and they were still only 1 down. This pair put on 84 runs, however the boys gave their all it very hot conditions. They passed our total 6 wickets down with a few overs left finishing 8 wickets down. Very proud of the effort by all boys with Ross Porter getting 2 late wickets and Darcy Hunkin 3 wickets.
A mixed weekend of results with a win and a couple of close losses.
