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. ”

As the first days play was cancelled due to hot weather the game became a one dayer and the weather gods smiled upon us with perfect conditions for both spectator and player alike. Tea Tree Gully won the toss and decided to bowl, an interesting decision considering the conditions. Tully Kennett and Harry Edmonds opened the batting for Kensington and it soon became clear why Tea Tree made the decision they did with our batsmen being held to none for 16 after 12 overs. By the drinks break we had lost 2 wickets and only made 44 runs.
After the break Harry Edmonds and Arham Hashmi went out with clear directions from Team manager Sam Konnis to not be silly but to lift the run rate, which they did very well piling on a further 116 runs off the last 20 to give us a total of 2/160 at tea.
Our bowlers then took to the field. Will McGowan and Darcy Hunkin opened for Kensington with Will McGowan taking his first wicket of the 2nd ball of the game. Darcy Hunkin then struck with a well executed clean bowled and Kensington had them 2/16 after 8 overs. The Kensington bowling order once again showed why they are so strong with great performances all round. Will McGowan added another 2 notches to his belt making his tally 3 for the day. But the bowling performance of the day went to Darcy Hunkin who ended up with 4 wickets, 2 beautifully clean bowled and the last 2 coming off from bowling around the wicket which would make his coach very happy. Bowling figures Will McGowan 3/18 off 8, Lachie Parker1/15 off 6, Darcy Hunkin 4/13 off 7, Fred McClure 1/23 off 8.
Our fielding again was exceptional with brilliant catches taken by Fred McClure, Jack Konnis and Max Monfries. Will McGowan took part in a great run out and Zac Norris gave a text book display on fielding showing flawless backing up skills and quick, accurate fielding from the boundary.
final score Kensington had them all out for 106 off 36 overs.A very professional display, well done team.
Man of the Match – Darcy Hunkin.
Afternoon Tea award goes to the Kensington parents!!! The spread was fantastic thank you all, you did a great job. To all the families, have a happy and safe festive season, see you after the long break.

Travelling to TTG for a highly anticipated top of the table clash we won the toss and batted first aiming for 200 runs off our 40 overs. At the half way mark we were in all sorts of trouble 6/62 with Christian Leddicoat already out for 32. Lachie Cox 47 and Liam Greber 27 restored some pride and we managed to get to 144, well short of what we needed. We had to bowl and field well, however we started badly, bowling poorly, fielding poorly and dropping 5 crucial catches. We would have still won the game if we held them but dropped catches lose matches. Liam Greber backed up his batting with a superb bowling effort 3/28 and was our only bowling highlight. It was the first game these boys have lost since round 1 last season and they are still top of the table so will put it down to the long drive out there and look forward to next week 🙂 Sent from my iPhone

John Comley One of the great Kensington parents John Comley has unfortunately lost his battle with cancer last week at the young age of only 50 and today there was an outstanding service to highlight and celebrate his life. John was such a friendly bubbly person,always smiling and he loved life to the fullest. Our thoughts and best wishes go to his wife Sandy and children Jonson and Shenae. Jonson played junior cricket at Kensington starting with the under 13s and progressing through to the under 16s. Every one that knew John will have great memories and lots of smiles,he enriched all of our lives. Gary Slack Bonnetts Saddleworld
