Lets hope this beautiful and much needed rain disappears overnight and we get some fine weather to get on field Sunday. Good Luck to everyone, lets get 3 wins. There is ABSOLUTELY NO REASON why we can't.

I must make special mention to Georgia Iannella who has spent the past few games in the A Grade. She has been fantastic in the field and bowled some handy overs. Where possible we have a rotation policy so that Georgia can get back, have a good bat and get amongst the runs.

16th January 2016

Kensington U16 White v Woodville

At Marryatville High


Connor O’Brien won the toss and decided to bat.  The pitch looked good, but the outfield proved to be very slow due to the height of the grass.   There were a few changes to the team due to players away on holidays and players drafted to U16 Reds.

Liam Winskill and Liam Nichol faced tight medium/fast bowling, containing the early scoring 2-48 after 21 overs.   The run rate picked up when spin was introduced from both ends. Nichol and Jack Konnis batted strongly to reach 3-90 after 33 overs.

Running between wickets was an area that we need to improve on with some 20 runs foregone due to not taking the first run at pace.  Wickets fell at regular intervals and despite strong contributions from Luke Pedlar (stepping up from U14’s) 27, Liam Nichol 29 and Jack Konnis 43 we were all out for 174 off 66 overs, a reasonable total but a tight bowling performance supported by active fielding will be required next week.




U16 White

Kensington v Woodville

At Marryatville High School

Day 2


The wicket was slightly damp after the storm on Friday afternoon play got underway on time with Woodville chasing 174.


Will McGowan and Will Warrick opened the bowling..   Woodville batted very cautiously but lost early wickets to be 2/11 after 10 overs.   Tight Bowling and sharp fielding put the batters under pressure.   Max Monfries  picked up 3 wickets in a tight spell, 3/3(5).

Wickets continued  to fall on a regular basis with McGowan, Warrick, Norris, Cowling and  Quigley Smith picking up wickets.  Woodville were dismissed for 53 after 37 overs.   After tea, Woodville were invited to follow on.

Again tight bowling supported by a couple of very good catches kept the scoring down.  McGowan 2/15, Norris 2/10, Monfries 3/18, Quigley Smith and Will Warrick again chipped in keeping Woodville to 7/95 off 30 overs.

A great performance by the Kensington team.




Level 1 Coaching Course

Hi Everyone I now have some dates for the Level 1 coaching course to be run by SACA at the club. The course is 5 hours duration, and will be run over 2 nights, Monday 22nd and 29th February. I don’t as yet have times, but I would expect we would start around 6pm. Can those of you have expressed interest in doing the course please confirm they are able to attend on those nights. If anyone else has not as yet let me know they want to do the course, please also confirm your interest/availability. Regards Jane


Jan 252016
Following the results of the 20/20 games on the weekend the A Grade are now assured of a spot in the Grand Final with one game remaining. That means, on February 21st, get down to Adelaide Oval and watch the girls in action. We won our first 20/20 flag last year and it would be wonderful to go back to back.

We do have one more game to go however and that is this Wednesday afternoon / night, 27th January. The game is against West Torrens who are fighting for a spot in the final. It is at HENLEY GRANGE MEMORIAL, West Torrens main home ground and STARTS AT 5:20. Please be aware of the start time. The team will be the same as the one who played on Sunday:

Sarah Lowe (C), Bridget Patterson, Eliza Doddridge, Hannah Armstrong, Kelly Armstrong, Jordan Doecke, Amy Wiseman, Katelyn Pope, Georgia Iannella

If there are any problems let me know ASAP. With the game starting at 5:20 i realise that there may be some issues with people getting there early enough for a decent warm up, but if players could be there by 4:45 that would be ideal. Let me know if you are going to be late, if we need to have a sub fielder ready we will.




Jan 252016
Hi All,

Further on from our girls representing the State at the Outback's Carnival and the Under18's, we also have a couple of other talented girls representing the state with distinction.

Shaina Altman is just back from Brisbane where she was a part of the SAPSASA team. The 12 and under carnival was  held in January in Brisbane. SA finished 4th out of 6 which is not as good as last year where they finished second. Shaina opened the batting for all 5 games and totalled 84 for the tournament with her top score of 43 against WA where she was eventually run out. She also took 2 wickets for 25 runs off 10 overs for the tournament. Well done Shaina, and we look forward to watching you develop even more in the years ahead.

Bridget Patterson has been an important part of the Scorpions line up and this then moved into the Strikers where they unfortunately just missed out on qualifying for the semi-finals. As a reward for Bridget's efforts this year she was then selected for the the inaugural Governor-General’s XI match against the touring Indian Cricket Team. Unfortunately weather intervened and they only got through 4 overs of the match. To take out her frustrations she came back to the Browns yesterday and made a stunning 105* in 60 balls in a 20/20 game against Northern Districts.

U16 Red Day 2

Day 2 at St Clair with the side setting about getting a target to attempt an outright. We batted on from day one finally reaching 10/207 with Oliver Harms 43 off 26 balls ( 3 x 6s) and good contributions from Sean McCullum 25 and Harry Edmonds 27. We then experienced an outstanding bowling performance from skipper Adam Clements taking 8/13 to go with his 4/20 first innings and including a hat trick. Every wicket a highlight either bowled or courtesy of excellent catching including 2 rippers from Sean and 1 from Harry. We also did an excellent job conceding no extras from 27.2 overs with keeper Nick Wilson also very good behind the stumps. James. DuPreez 1/23 and Darcy Hunkin 1/10 contributing wickets also. Well done to the team to get our second outright for the season. We now face 3 tough games against quality opposition as we seek to consolidate our spot for the finals. Our standards of Attitude , Effort and Intent on display and evidence of the all round contributions of the team. . ______________________________________________________________________ This email has been scanned by the Symantec Email Security.cloud service.

16 Reds captain Adam Clements lead superbly from the front against Woodville to take career best figures of 8 wickets for only 13 runs. This included a hat trick with the hat trick ball knocking the Woodville batsman’s off stump out of the ground.It was a brilliant display of swing bowling by Adam to back up his 4 for 20 in the first innings. Match figures of 12 wickets for 33 Well done Adam Gary Slack Bonnetts Saddleworld

A fantastic outright win ! After a brilliant first day the boys dismissed Woodville in their 2nd innings for 83, needing 38 to win outright. Sam Burgess 31no off 19 balls achieved this in the 5th over. Best with the ball were Jake Bilsborow 2/7 and Max Cunningham 2/11, with 4 run outs. Well done to all boys 🙂

Chasing a modest 189 runs off 60 overs we should have reached this target comfortably. Unfortunately a lack of intent to score runs by too many and continued desire to hit the ball in the air by most caused us to fall 2 runs short with 2 balls remaining for a very disappointing loss 🙁 Christian Leddicoat followed up his 3 wickets with 46 runs off 48 balls, Sam Rahaley 51 off 97 balls and an almost heroic Peter Unerkov 21 off 22 balls at the end we’re best with the bat.

Women’s Under 18 Carnival

 General  Comments Off on Women’s Under 18 Carnival
Jan 222016

The U18 National Female Cricket Championships was held in Canberra 13 to 19 January. Victoria dominated the tournament finishing undefeated in the eight games played and consequently crushing New South Wales Metro’s 12 year winning streak.

The South Australian team included four Kensington players; Kelly Armstrong, Rachael Church, Shae Daly and Eliza Doddridge, all of whom contributed to the team’s fourth place finish behind Victoria (1st), New South Wales Metropolitan (2nd) and ACT/NSW Country (3rd) respectively. This result equaled the States placing in the championships held in Sydney last year.

Shae’s off-spin bowling troubled opposition; her figures of 6 overs, 2 maidens, 1/9 in game one helped the SA team to an early win vs QLD and she backed up against NSW the following day, with 4 overs, 2/16 as well as a catch. Shae took one a piece vs Cricket Australia XI and Tasmania in the first Twenty 20 games before standing up for her team against the top team in Victoria, bowling superbly, 10 overs, 3 maidens, 2/13.

Eliza opened the batting for the side in five games, top scoring with 18 vs second placed NSW Metro. She took 4 catches throughout the carnival, 1 vs Victoria, 2 against QLD in round one to accompany her bowling figures of 4 overs, 1 maiden, 1/8 as well as 1 caught and bowled vs ACT/NSW Country (4 overs, 1/21). Eliza also took 1/18 off 3 overs vs WA in a tightly contested T20 win.

Kelly was selected as one of four spinners in the side, her leg spin proving dominant as she took 1/11 off 5 vs QLD and bowled tightly vs Cricket Australia XI, 0/10 off her three. Not only was her bowling consistent, but she proved to be a key batter scoring 10 runs vs NSW and top scoring v Victoria with 25.

Rachael was picked as a young wicket-keeper/batter, who took it upon herself to stand up in the toughest circumstances. She scored 11 runs vs NSW, the 2nd highest score for her team, 16 vs ACT/NSW Country as well as 10 vs Victoria, also the 2nd highest run scorer. Her keeping proved consistent, taking two stumpings and a catch for the tournament.

Shae should also be congratulated for her selection in the Australian Development Squad, joining Ellie Falconer (West Torrens) and Tabatha Seville (Southern) as the SA representatives.  SA also was awarded the “Spirit of Cricket” Award at the award ceremony on the final evening.

Jan 202016

Kensington’s Bridget Patterson is one of 4 South Australian players who have been selected in the inaugural Governor-General’s XI, to play against India this Friday. The side will take on the visitors in a T20 game at Sydney’s Drummoyne Oval, ahead of the Indian’s game against the Southern Stars at Adelaide Oval on Australia Day. Bridget has been rewarded for some sold batting performances over the summer both with the Scorpions in the WNCL and the Strikers in the WBBL.

Hi All,

A Hot weekend for this round of cricket with the A Grade playing a double header 20/20 at Pk25#2 and the B Grade into round 2 of the 40 Over comp. Unfortunately with so many unavailable (14) we were unable to field the B Browns. Disappointing to say the least as it is the first time in many years that we had to forfeit a game. A tough time of the year with holidays and National Carnivals.


The A Grade took on Sturt in the first 20/20 and sadly came away with a very disappointing loss. Sturt were also very weakened by missing players but we were confident. A strong bowling performance led by Popey restricted Sturt to 69. Popey 2/9, Sarah Lowe 1/13, Amy Wiseman 1/7 and Georgia Iannella 1/3 from 2 led the bowlers. 3 Run outs helping. We lost an early wicket but got to 31 quite easily before the rot set in. An amazing spell from Sarah Carver of 4 Overs 5 for 6 set us right back. 4 wickets in her first 2 overs. A position we didn't recover from and we were bowled out for 63.Jordan 19 and Popey 19* the best with the bat. STURT 8/69 DEFEATED KENSINGTON 8/63.

Thankfully Sarah was able to rally the troops and she lead brilliantly from the front against Port Adelaide who had beaten Southern in the first game. We lost the toss but had a bat and Sarah and Hannah Armstrong got away to a flyer, putting on 69 for the opening stand in 40 minutes. Sarah falling for 47 from 45 and setting up a great platform. The following batters all chipping in at better than a run a ball with Hannah batting through undefeated no 48 from 50 balls, continuing her fine form from her week away with the OUTBACK'S in Mount Gambier. A highly competitive total of 125, on a day that was getting increasingly hot and causing grief to a number of players. Emma Sampson and in particular Tamara Clapton came out swinging but not always too sensibly. Tamara testing Jordy and losing as she was stumped from Monique's bowling. A steady flow of wickets kept our noses in front but Sampson was always a concern. Popey came back to clean her up and from there we looked safe. Port being bowled out for 96 from 17.2 overs to give us a much needed win. Monique 3/12, the best of the bowlers, with Popey, Slowe and Wise getting 1 wicket each. KENSINGTON 5/125 DEFEATED PORT ADELAIDE 96.

Disappointing to split the day, but results from other games meant we have been able to maintain top spot. Sturt were the only team able to snatch 2 wins and now sit second, 1 win behind us. West Torrens and Port also sit on 4 wins, 1 behind us, so it is tight for the Grand Final spot with 3 games to go. 2 Next Sunday and then the last one on Wednesday 27th at Henley from 5:20. Start times for next Sunday's games are not set at the moment, depending on the Strikers result form this Thursday. 

As i said earlier there were a number of girls from the weekend who had trouble in the heat. IT IS VITAL that if it is going to be hot, everyone prepares properly. That means hydration the day before (water!) and also during the morning before the game. ALSO make sure that you eat properly. B Grade is all 40 Over games and A Grade is full days from now on. We don't want anyone suffering from heat related illness if we can help it.



Prospect 5/136 (40) def Kensington Gold 9/65 (16.5)

A tough day for Kensington Gold on a very hot afternoon at Broadview Oval. Due to the heat, the umpires elected for two drinks breaks each innings rather than the traditional one. Emily Armstrong unfortunately called incorrectly and Prospect chose to bat on what looked like a pretty good batting wicket. With Emily electing to keep the bowling spells short, Jess Murray and Amy Kaesler were unable to get the breakthrough in their initial two-over spells. By this stage, the Kensington supporters were running drinks around to fine leg for the bowlers as the afternoon heat started to bite.

Bella Smith on at first change bowled a tight three over spell, asking good questions of the batters but was unable to make the first breakthrough. Sarah Ferris bowling off-spin at second change at the other end beat the bat a few times in her short spell but likewise could not get the first crucial incision. Matilda Ronin provided a bit of magic in the third over of her spell from the City End, getting one to keep a bit low and successfully appealing for the LBW for the first wicket, finishing with 1/22 from 6.

The 37 run opening stand in 14 overs showed the tight lines Kensington were keeping but unfortunately, the heat was affecting fielders, bowlers and Lauren Semmens behind the sticks, who toiled away on what was becoming a tough afternoon.

Emily cleverly rotated the bowlers, also ensuring the young girls in the team got a bowl. Congratulations to Amelie Green for her 1/10 from 3 – her first wicket for the club! Maeve Edwards 3 overs for 9, Olivia Mulvany 3 overs for 13 and Sophie Johnson 1 over for 4 helped to keep the run rate down.

Jess Murray was brought back on from the Regency Road end but unfortunately succumbed to the heat, going down after the second ball of 6th over and having to leave the field, finishing 0/21 from 5.2.  Jess seemed okay after a brief revival on the sidelines but was unable to bat and was taken home to rest up. Sarah Ferris finished with 2/27 from 6.4, with an outstanding over of 2/1 from one over, thanks in no small part to a smart catch off the top edge by Lauren standing up. Amy Kaesler 0/11 from 4 over two spells bowled with good heat on a slow pitch, hurrying the batters up. The skipper only bowled the three overs in the innings, finishing with a miserly 0/6 from 3, including a final over of crafty finger spin.

A couple of dropped catches and a few misfields helped Prospect to a slightly larger total than they probably should have got.

After the inning break, where the Kensington players smashed bottle after bottle of water, the chase was on. With Jess unable to bat, Kensington only had the 9 wickets to play with. Prospect showed the value of attacking the stumps on a slow, low pitch and routed the Kensington line up to record what was a huge win. The total of 35 would have been far worse were it not for the final wicket partnership of 22 between Sarah Ferris 18 (the last wicket to fall) Amelie Green 2*. In all, there were five ducks in the innings and the FOW read 0, 4, 4, 6, 7, 10, 14 and 16 before the final partnership. The 10 wides conceded by Prospect also helped pump up the disappointing score.

While the loss was large in terms of magnitude, the Kensington girls played with great spirit and were up and about all through the bowling innings in what were very tough conditions. A bit to work on a training this week, with 6 of the 9 dismissals bowled or LBW.

(Thanks to Andy Mulvany)

Training as per normal this week and through to the end of the season.

Day 1 at St Clair Woodville the home side won the toss and elected to bat. Slow batting from their openers as they crept to 0/18 after 10 overs and we couldn’t quite get the break through. Once skipper Adam Clements got his fist we proceeded to take regular wickets to have them 7/41 . Some stubborn and at times lusty batting saw Woodville etch out 10/111. Main destroyers Sam Bruce 5/35 and Adam with 4/20. At times our bowling , fielding and lack of intensity mildly frustrating as we should have really put them to sword when we had the chance. As has been the case this season on we again got off to a good start with openers Angas Marshall and Jed Spence taking us to the 23rd over before we lost our first wicket to be 1/83 Angas out for 40 ,again batting well and getting a real start and hitting some excellent boundaries over the infielders ,Jed followed 5 runs later for 46 and then we batted the last 6 overs out without further loss to finish at 2/96 with Harry Edmonds 5* and Sean McCullum 2*. With good intent and application next week we have a chance to push past their score quickly and set a target to try bowl them out for extra points. . ______________________________________________________________________ This email has been scanned by the Symantec Email Security.cloud service.

Winning the toss we bowled first hoping for quick wickets and after 10 overs the score was 0/11. Josh Sims grabbed 2 quick wickets both bowled but Woodville were batting extremely slowly being 2/53 off 29 overs. We were bowling well but they were not taking risks and hence were difficult to remove. Christian Leddicoat bought himself on as he tried 10 different bowlers trying to get wickets and bowled beautifully to get 3/21 and at 7/112 with 13 overs to bowl we were hoping to wrap things up quickly. However one of the Woodville boys then went berserk smashing 87no to leave them at 8/188 off their 60 overs. A disappointing result after a brilliant first 3/4 of the day, however a good lesson learnt by all and we will chase this target down next week 🙂

Captain Will Rice won the toss and sent Woodville in to bat and Caleb Hoberg grabbed the first 3 wickets with only 23 runs on the board. Finn March came on and in 5 overs took the amazing figures of 5 wickets for 2 runs to leave Woodville in tatters at 8/45 and they were all out for 55 in 21 overs . We started slowly but were soon in lots of trouble at 5/28, but Academy player Lachy Gitsham and Caleb Hoberg steered us past their total with out loosing another wicket. Lachy finished on 28 and Jake Bilsborow hit a quick 15no to leave us 49 runs in front. We had 3 overs at them and they are 1/5, a great day by all the boys !! 🙂

Jan 142016

The unbeaten Kensington team throughout the fortnight played the might of Adelaide today in the under 17 Grand final. Both extremely talented squads, it was going to always be a worthy contest. Adelaide batted on a hard but green pitch and Oliver Harms soon had the Adelaide team in trouble at 6/39 with Oliver snaring 5 of them with a brilliant spell of pace bowling. Steven Tanti bowled with guile and venom to snare 1/3 off 5 overs and the pony tailed Will Loffler capping off a great fortnight with 2/4 off of 4 overs. Henry Dall was lightening quick in the field for a runout and Cam Fatchen completed the Adelaide route with the final wicket. All out 104, a great performance by the Kensington team. It is fair to say that what happened next was not expected. All carnival our top order batting has been superb but today it was really challenged as a grand final will do. By the end of the 7th over we were 5/20 and the 105 needed for victory was looking along way away. Enter two heroes in the name of Jed Spence and James Cleggett, they took up the challenge with defiant defence and positive cricket to form an out standing and match winning partnership of 64 runs. It was a pleasure to watch in this chance less innings by the pair before Jed was out LBW for a brilliant 39. James keep the runs flowing with Steven Tanti and the pair continued on smoothly to pass the Adelaide total in the 30th over. Steven finished 13 not out and James 31 not out. An outstanding fortnight for the Kensington squad of 15 players who were superbly lead by Michael Sullivan and Jordan Liemann. Gary Slack Bonnetts Saddleworld
