The SA Scorpions will take on New South Wales at Hurstville Oval in the WNCL final on Sunday, November 29th. The Scorpions will go in to the game feeling confident despite losing last year’s final against NSW, having beaten them this season by 1 run in a nail biter. Kensington’s trio of Bridget Patterson, Katelyn Pope and Sarah Lowe have travelled to Sydney with the team. Bridget has been in great form this season opening the batting, and Kate has excelled in the field. We wish the team well.

Kensington Under 16 Whites vs Glenelg

Once again the cricket weather shined upon us with a cool 24 degrees and not a cloud in sight.

The oval was in pristine condition giving to a lovely day for cricket.

Will Warrick and Lachie Parker opened the bowling and as with the week before Kensington went about collecting wickets at a fast rate of knots in a very short period of time. Lachie Parker was playing his debut game and had a fabulous start seeing him on a hat trick in the 8th which unfortunately did not eventuate but ended the day with impressive figures of 3/10 off 5. All the bowlers performed extremely well: Will McGowan taking 2/27 off 8, Fred McClure 2/7 off 7.3, Will Warrick 1/10 off 4, Max Monfries a very tidy 1/1 off 3 and Darcy Hunkin 1/7 off 4.

Our fielding was once again of a very high standard with Jack Konnis taking 1 catch, our wicky Liam Winskill taking 3 and Arham Hashmi taking a screamer. Kensington had them all out for 63 off 32 overs.

After an early tea,Harry Edmonds and Tully Kennett opened the batting and we reached the target in the 19th with only one wicket down. Glenelg were keen to call it stumps. But after much discussion and a very good argument put forward by our eloquent team manager Sam (with the assistance of his wing man Marty) the match keep going.

We continued batting with Harry Edmunds staying in throughout proceedings notching up a magnificent 100 not out, his first hundred for the club. Arham Hashmi belted 58 with some big hitting before being dismissed with at Liam Winskill coming in to make a run before play was called. The team is full of very talented players with the ability to support each other and play as a very tight and cohesive unit, well done boys. Man of the match Harry Edmonds.

A quick note to parents. Glenelg put on a fabulous tea for the boys, putting our efforts of late much to shame. We have a few parents sending good food along when it is our home games but there is an awful lot of Shapes, packet lamingtons, chips etc. If we could please maybe just pick it up a bit and even just sent some fruit if a bit rushed it would be a lot better.

Round 4 at Ford Oval  and again we were greeted by a perfect day and what looked a  good track in the clash with Glenelg in a 1 day match.


Skipper Adam Clements succeeded in winning the toss and we decided  to have a bat. We were immediately on the front foot with a boundary first ball as both openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence went about getting us off to a good start . The batting was very positive and busy until we lost Jed for 18 and the score on 46. In came Sean McCullum and like all our batsman was also busy from the start. Whilst we lost a few wickets all batsman got starts and with good scoring intent the scoreboard continued to tick with 200 runs in mind. Good innings from Angas 31 , and Will Montgomery 27 set us up to have a bit of a dash in the last 10 over’s. Things slowed slightly before Tom Van der Jeugd and first game debutant Nic Wilson entertained with some great  hitting Tom eventually out for 47 having strained an upper leg but letting his bat do the talking. Nic Wilson finished 30* ( including 18 off one over from a  very yappy Glenelg bowler who may have wished he had said nothing ) and James Dupreez 6* getting us to 5/188 a good score as the pitch whilst looking good, occasionally had a few tricks in it.


With our confidence and attitude and effort high we set about undoing Glenelg with an excellent display of bowling and fielding. All bowlers got in on the act with Ashley Eckermann again grabbing a wicket in the opening over to finish with 2/23 , Adam beating the bat regularly and bowling superbly 2/7 off 7 over’s, Riley Slack 1/19, James Dupreez 2/11, Sam Bruce 1/12 and Greg Tanti in his first game this season back from Firsts duty coming on as bowler #6 and probably the most lively #6 bowler in U16s history chipping in with 2/13 off 6  over’s.

Glenelg all out for 96 in 32 over’s and another very good win with contributions from all 12 players either with bat , ball and from all in the field.

We get the next week off due to the historic first day/night test and then resume in a 2 day match against a good side, TTG away from home as we welcome our next challenge.

Well done guys.


Man of the Match Tom V.

We had a trip down to Adelaide High to play Glenelg for our round 4 clash. After Sam Burgess lost the toss he got to bat first as per his choice had he won the toss, all good there. 
Once again we lost early wickets and were 3/15. Again though, our innings was steadied by a great 95 run partnership between Jack Tapfield (first fifty for the club getting 59) and Will Rice collecting 42.
 With the lower order chipping in we scratched our way to 9/174. We figured this about par and new we had to take wickets to keep Glenelg at bay(no pun intended). Once again our first 20 overs was a little bit sloppy lacking the intensity required and we found ourselves at 3/96 at drinks. Like  previous matches the boys managed to dig deep and get things going again. With an inspiring diving catch at mid wicket by Max Cunningham the momentum was changing. With Glenelg needing 52 off the last 12 overs Josh Sims (2/18) bagged 2 in two balls and the team had well and truly fired up. Sam then brought himself on for an inspiring spell of fast bowling and after smashing the middle stump in half,
 spirits were high!!
A tense finish was looming and the match was in the balance with Glenelg needing 24 off 25 balls with 3 wickets in hand. Now it was 11 required off the last over and a calm Caleb Hoberg (2/23)finished in style and we got home by 6 runs!!
Our best game in the field with Tom Barnett taking a great catch down leg side and Young Jack taking the honours for the day with his 59 runs, another hard match at home against the Gullies for next week.

Playing at home against a strong Glenelg Liam Greber got us off to the perfect start after losing the toss and in the field first, clean bowling one of their best 3rd ball of the match. Eight overs later they were 3/26 Liam with all three. Their best batsmen was still in and threatened to take control of the match but the spin twins of Jack Packer (2) and Jack Read (3) turned the game our way in a 16 over spell grabbing 5/41 including their gun batsmen. Ben Belperio cleaned up the last 2 wickets for no runs all out for 94 due to excellent bowling and fielding which was first class holding all our chances two each to Luke Pedlar and Matt Slack. After 12 overs we were 0/25 – six balls later 2/25 with both openers out. Enter Christian Leddicoat and Sam Rahaley both in excellent form and both coming off last innings centuries for Kensington. 16 overs later the game was won with both batting beautifully with us finishing 2/157 at the end. Sam finished on 65no and Christian 64no – both played extremely mature and sensible innings. A very good win against a quality side 🙂

We travelled to The Paddocks for a rematch of last seasons grand final where we were the victors 🙂 Northern Districts won the toss and batted first but Sam Warrick soon had one of their best out and another 2 overs later. They progressed steadily until the 16th over when Peter Unerkov had their number 3 smartly caught by Jack Packer. 3/51 after 17 overs and Peter Unerkov then bowled an amazing over, wickets on the second, fourth and fifth balls all LBW and all in swinging yorkers 3/0 in one over ! They struggled to 101 with Sam Warrick finishing with 3 wickets and Jack Read a handy 2. We got off to a poor start losing a wicket in the second over but then it was 20 overs and 140 runs before we lost the next. Sam Rahaley batted extremely well out for 40 and down the other end was the captain Christian Leddicoat 100no off 70 balls. It was Christian’s 2nd hundred in consecutive innings for Kensington. He finished on 136 off 99 balls including 8 sixes and 14 fours. Quote the Northern Districts coach after the game – ” I am stunned I have never seen a batting display like that ” We finished on 6/235 off our 40 overs a great team effort in the field but amazing effort by 2 boys with the bat 🙂

Round 3 a 1 dayer vs Northern Districts . Good conditions a pitch which asked to be batted on and a team with some new inclusions. Well done to Liam Winskill and Will McGowan making their U16 red debut. We won the toss and Skipper Adam Clements said lets bat. Openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence looked busy early till we lost Angas caught on the boundary for 7 and we were 1/16. Will Montgomery joined Jed and immediately he looked very solid and went about settling in. Will and Jed took us to 89 steadying the ship and looking good till we lost Will for a well compiled 21 and looking to have all his skill and confidence back in good nick.

Arham Hasmi  came in and hit the ball very hard casing some field readjustments but unfortunately out and at 3/98 off 32 we needed some hitting to secure a reasonable score. Tom Van der Jeugd in next . Jed departed shortly after for 59 . Enter James “BamBam” Dupreez which saw a  35 run partnership at quick pace before Tom was out accelerating the run rate. Ashley Eckermann joined James and with both exhibiting some lusty hitting and very quick running, (James can turn 1 into 3) very quickly we finished at an excellent 5/171 off our 40 over’s. James 37* off 24 balls and Ashley 14* off 7 balls.


We set about defending the total and almost immediately had Northern Districts in trouble Ashley deciding the furniture needed rearranging as he helped himself to 3/5 all bowled. We continued to take wickets at random as the opposition limped to 5/19 at tea. Set the task to get them all out quickly 5 over’s later it had been done Northern  all out for 27. All bowlers were exceptional with 8 wickets either bowled or lbw as we kept it tight and hit the stumps regularly. James completed the  batting , bowling double with 2/2 off 5, Riley Slack 2/1, Sam Bruce 3/7 Adam 0/2 off 5 and debutant Will McGowan 0/6 off 4.


We had 12 over’s 2nd Innings batting and changing the line up  a little finished at  3/39 with Riley 10*and Adam 10*. Now back in front of the win loss ledger we play a one day at home vs Glenelg next week before a weekend off for the Test .

Excellent effort from the entire team with batting, bowling and fielding well above par to grab a big win.


Some pics below thanks to Irfan Hashmi. The smile on Wills face says it all….

Another home game at Langman reserve saw a visit from Northern Districts for game 3 of the season. After winning the toss our new Captain Sam Burgess chose to bat first in excellent conditions. Unfortunately Henry Rice was clean bowled in the first over of the day and was followed back to the sheds by Charlie Bear in the 3rd over. This had us at 2/20 early but Sam was looking solid at the top and at drinks we were 3/65 after 20 overs. After an energy filled lunch Sam took to the bowlers and put together an entertaining knock of 75 runs before being caught on the boundary. At 8/122 we were in a bit of trouble but a fantastic 50 run partnership from Caleb Hoberg and Will Rice got us to a respectable 8/176 off our 40 overs.
After tea we started off untidy in the field again, and after dropping 5 catches in the first 20 overs the game was in the balance with Northern 2/75 after 20 overs. A more convincing Kensington team came out after drinks and set about grabbing the game by the scruff of the neck, another great diving caught and bowled by spinner Charlie Bear and the runs were slowed down. The bowling tightened up and the catches were now being taken and in that 3rd 10 over session the game was turned. Northern now needed 80 runs off the last 10 overs with only 4 wickets in hand, so with the game under control we threw the bowling around to enable a few overs from all players and won the game comfortably.
A much better fielding effort today from the boys and an area we will keep working on over the next few weeks, in a team where everyone can bat and bowl we have huge depth. Fielding is an area where we can really shine over the rest of the season if we work hard!!
It seems that our Captains are leading from the front and another great Captains knock set the game up for us today, well done to Sam Burgess as man of the match.

With the final task at hand to win and go through to the final,  on paper it seemed a David and Goliath battle against Port. No one told Port this!!
After winning the toss we went into bat with a different top order, to give some of the boys a chance to get some runs under their belts. The Port opening bowler steamed in and had Sam Burgess caught behind on the third delivery. What followed was amazing for all lucky enough to witness!! (except maybe the coach and a few nervous batsmen). The next 3 deliveries were all clean bowled Yorkers and we were suddenly 4 wickets for no score, and by the time young Sam Rahaley nervously strolled out to the wicket we were 5/14. The Port coach was very excited at this point in the match but a very patient Jack Packer and Sam steadied the ship and were slowly building a total that could at least give us a chance at defending. A nervous coach needed not worry as excellent batting was the order of the day from here on. A brilliant 116 from Sam and an excellent supporting knock from Campbell Watts for 39 saw us to 9/224. A very different mood in the Port camp at the tea break.
After tea it was a case of bowling line and length would do the job and Sam Warrick certainly listened to the team talk at the break, he rattled the top order with 4/4 off 6 overs. Caleb Hoberg was also present at that team talk and chipped in with 2 clean bowled and had figures of 2/4 off 3 overs. From there we shared the bowling amongst all the team and young Jack Tapfield picked up a couple at the end of the innings with 2/7.
A great days cricket with a few nervous batsmen around the ground, but over all a convincing win and one that should help us through any potential tight moments in the final.
Congratulations to all the players on reaching the Grand Final to be played against Woodville on Sunday.

U16 whites vs Northern Districts.

The day’s proceedings started on a dramatic note with one of the umpires cars being rear ended at the entrance to the oval. Conditions were perfect for cricket, cool and overcast.

Kensington came out of the blocks fast and furious with captain Will Warrick striking with the first ball of the match clean bowling the Northern batsman. This was closely followed by a 2nd wicket also bowled by Will Warrick seeing Northern Districts 2 for 1. Going into the 2nd over Max Monfries cleaned bowled their batsmen leaving them 3 for 2. Wickets continued to fall with the run rate at a virtual standstill. Our bowlers continued to bowl beautifully with the spinners doing damage towards the end. Once again our fielding was of a very high standard with a fabulous run out thrown by Tully Kennett and a brilliant catch taken by Zac Norris. Final score all out for 58.

Bowling figures – Will Warrick 3/14 off 5, Max Monfries 1/11 off 5, Darcy Hunkin 1/6 off 5, Fred McClure 2/10 off 8 and Will Quigley-Smith 2/10 off 3.


An early tea break was called and play resumed with Tully and Harry Edmunds opening for Kensington. After a slow beginning the boys started to put the runs on, we were looking comfortable until Tully was caught with what could be the catch of the season in mid wicket. We had made the required runs by the 22nd over and were now batting for extra points. Final tally 3/115.

Batting figures – Harry Edmunds 55, Tully Kennett 28, Jack Konnis 14 no, Corey White 4 no. Well done Whites, another convincing win. Man of the match Harry Edmunds.

U16 Whites vs West Torrens

Day 1 Will Warrick won the toss and Kensington batted on a green Marryatville pitch.The first half of the innings was challenging for the batsmen but with a few solid partnerships with Jack Konnis and Liam Winskill we were around 190 by tea which had us in a great position to set a good total by the end of the day.

 The message was clear,we needed more runs to give us a bigger margin going into the 2nd day of play. The middle order took up the challenge in a convincing manner, forming good solid partnerships and laying on a further 100 runs. Final tally 9/288, a very good total for the opposition to chase.Best batsmen – D Hunkin 64 not out, J. Konnis 55 off 57, W. McGowan 46 off 42, L Winskill 35 off 76. Great effort on the Marryatville pitch and heavy outfield.

 Day 2 saw Kensington come in with a clear intent, to win and win convincingly. By tea time the boys had West Torrens all out for 87, a very tidy performance shown by all our bowlers

All he bowlers took wickets with a really even performance. Everyone took their opportunity.

After tea we sent them back in and Will McGowan decide to unleash notching up a further 5 wickets of which the first four were clean bowled.Our fielding was of a very high quality with some incredible catches taken by the boys, a couple of stand outs (but by no means the only) being Tully Kennett and Jack Konnis and Corey White.

The boys tried valiantly and were superbly lead by first time skipper Will Warrick but we were unable to claim the outright as their tail enders dug their toes in and played defensively keeping them to a 2nd innings total of 7/56.

 A great effort by our team to take 17 wickets in one day of which 12 were either bowled or LBW, a great start to the season. 

Best bowling figures over both innings – Will (on fire) McGowan 6/31, Jack Konnis 3/23, Darcy Hunkin 2/20, Will Warrick 2/23 and Zac Norris 2/3. Man of the match Will McGowan for his 6 wickets and 46 runs.

Day 2 Report U16 Reds vs West Torrens

 General  Comments Off on Day 2 Report U16 Reds vs West Torrens
Nov 102015

Day 2 started with renewed enthusiasm as the players reset after week ones poor showing. It was immediately obvious this was a different team more like the true Kensington. After a short while we finally got the break through and over the next 22 over’s proceeded to pick up 5 wickets with West Torrens declaring 110 runs in front having secured 1st innings points. Our bowlers generally toiled well and only some risky and lusty swinging  in the late over’s  from West Torrens skewing the figures a little. West Torrens 5/210 dec.


Bowling honours went to Ashley Eckermann 3/43 off 13 ( including an obscure 2 ball over????), Adam Clements 1/46 off 14 and Riley Slack 1/40 off 9 over’s. Asked to bat again with West Torrens hoping to duplicate the first innings we got off to an excellent start with openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence immediately taking control and keeping the scoreboard ticking with Angas taking some toll on the bowling scoring 7 boundaries off his first 7 scoring shots whilst Jed played the steady anchor role perfectly. We lost Angas for 50 off 57 balls in what was an great and entertaining  knock. We unfortunately lost another wicket and again it looked to tighten at 2/68. Euan Fletcher joined Jed and from then on the batting was everything we needed as the pair saw us through to close of play with us finishing at 2/194 , Euan  63* and Jed 70* to gain  some valuable  time in the middle.

The team refocussed and looking forward to next weeks 1 dayer vs the Northerners.

Set a target of 200 from 60 overs we were excited by the challenge and knew we had to bat well through out the whole innings to win. Openers Jack Bear and Luke Pedlar got us away to a cautious start losing Jack in the 21st over 1/47. West Torrens continued to bowl line and length and we struggled to score and at tea we were 3/94 needing 106 to win off 26 overs. Captain Christian Leddicoat then took complete control of the game in another Masterclass display of batting. His first 50 runs took 58 balls and his next 69 runs finishing on 119 took 38 balls including scoring 50 runs himself off 4 consecutive overs. He would score 2, 4 or 6 off the first 5 balls of each over and then get a single off the last. Maturity beyond his years, with his hundred coming with a massive six straight down the ground over the bowlers head. Lachie Cox held up the other end getting singles to put Christian on strike and they put on 96 runs in 10 overs. We won with 11 overs in hand and finished at 252 with Lachie unbeaten on 21. A great result but will need more runs from all the other batsmen to continue our winning streak. Sent from my iPhone

Week two and the whites travelled back to Langman reserve to chase down 159 runs for victory.
 Captain Jack Read and Mitchell George got us under way, with Mitch out early it was Sam Burgess who helped steady the ship and we were soon 1/48 off nine overs.
 A mix up in the middle saw Sam depart and what followed was cricket cricket heaven. Josh Sims and Jack put on a partnership of 190 runs, dispatching average bowling to all parts of the foot hills.
 At tea we had passed their score and secured the victory and a decision was made to bat on rather than try for the outright win. Based on a very defensive batting display last week from our visitors it was of the view that they would batten down the hatches again if we sent them back in.
Instead we let out batsmen have some time in the middle and this produced a wonderful 149 runs for our Captain Jack, supported well by Josh with 66 and a late flurry by Charlie Bear with 34.
All up we ended with 332 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. Overall a solid performance from the whole team and continues a good start to the season.
Going forward a great confidence booster for the team and spirits were high!!

Hi All,

3 Winnable Games but only 1 quite bizarre victory!

The A Grade ventured to The Paddocks to take on Northern Districts in a rescheduled 20/20 game. Ridiculous, but that's the way it goes. After the players had their money stolen last year they went prepared and were going to keep an eye on the changerooms. They needn't have bothered because no-one had a key and they couldn't get in anyway!

A dodgy pitch and overgrown outfield greeted the girls and after Sarah eventually won a toss the girls had a bat. A struggle ensued and runs were very very hard to come by. After getting to 13 without loss the girls found themselves 5/23 and 6/32! In a 9 aside game, thus 8 wickets, it doesn't take much imagination to realise that we were in serious trouble! HOWEVER you have 9 people that can all bat and batters 7,8 and 9 put their heads down and made the most of a tough situation. 18 for the 7th wicket between Monique and Wisey may not sound a lot but in relation to the game it was vital. Emily Jones came in and she and Monique then added another 17 for the last wicket before the final wicket fell in the 20th Over. It shows the value of everyone realising that they can impact the game regardless of how things are going. That may be with the bat, in the field or with the ball. One catch, one partnership, one piece of great fielding to restrict runs. 67 clearly wasn't a massive total, but conditions weren't easy. Monique finished on 20* with Emily next best at number 9 with 8. In the field Sarah and Amy Wiseman took the new ball and early wickets were needed. Both bowlers stepped up and we had them 2/5. Amy grabbed another and Shae came into the attack to also grab a quick wicket. 4/12. Scoring was slow but a significant partnership of 36 ensued and at 4/48 Northern were getting on top, but the run rate was creeping up. Another bowling change brought Emily Jones on and she got the breakthrough with a catch to Eliza Doddridge. She kept the ball in hand and bowled a telling over of wickets (and a couple of wides!) but at the end of it she had taken 2/6. Slowe came on for the last over and by the end of it, Northern were 7 runs short of our total! Eliza 2/6, Amy 4overs 2/6, Shae 4 overs 1/8, with Sarah and Emily also taking a wicket. A great escape, but great fight after a poor game last week. Kensington 8/67 DEFEATED Northern 7/60.

The GOLDS took on Port Adelaide at Uni #2 and were seemingly always just a step behind. We lost the toss but were sent in and needed a good start. An early wicket held things up but from there the girls never got on top of some good solid bowling. Georgia got a dodgy decision but Emily Armstrong joined Sarah Ferris and they put together a very good partnership of 61. A couple of late runouts in the search for runs had the girls finish 4/86 for the second week in a row. Sarah finished 29* with Skipper Emily making 19. The Golds finishing about 20 runs short unless they could get some early breakthroughs. The girls struggled to make early impacts, but Sarah bowled well conceding only 13 from her 4 overs and getting the opener out caught behind. A few boundaries and too many wides made the task difficult and Port got past the total in the 16th Over for the loss of 4 wickets. Emily underbowled herself and took 1/8 from her 2 overs, Amy K and Matilda also taking wickets. Once again the Golds weren't completely out played and are just needing an extra 20 or so runs to turn the losses into wins. Golds 4/86 LOST to Port Adelaide 4/93.

The BROWNS took on the other Northern side and also lost the toss but were sent in. Sophie Roberts and Churchy put on 38 for the opening wicket in good time and set the innings up. Sarah Fraser came in and played some beautiful shots to outscore Churchy and keep momentum going. Sarah and Churchy fell quite quickly before Tiff Thackeray joined Chloe Frick and they put on an enterprising 48 with Tiff particularly aggressive to get the total to 3/113 after 20. Churchy 36, Tiff 21* from 24, Sophie 14 and Sarah 11 the best with the bat. An early wicket and some terrific early bowling from Sophie had us on top. Some steady batting from there though ensured that Northern were never out of the game. Some very good late hitting unfortunately got them over the line in the 20th over. A great game of entertaining cricket that unfortunately we came 2nd in. What was shown up, to both sides, how important it is to run well between the wickets, AND to always be on the look out for runs. Particularly in 20 / 20 games we can't afford to have too many dot balls in a row. The Northern girls were always ready to sneak the extra run or take the single when on offer. Learning curves for everyone, both when we are batting and when we are fielding. Speaking of fielding, a special mention to Cassidy Perkins who was fantastic in the field all day, and also to Ursula Gully who got behind everything. 2 newish players who are showing plenty. Browns 3/113 LOST to Northern 3/121.

As i type i am listening to some reasonably heavy rain come down. Keep an eye on the weather tomorrow as well as your emails to see what will happen regarding training.
