Grand Final Weekend is upon us and the Browns have three senior men’s teams still standing. The A’s, C’s and LOA’s will all do battle this weekend in what shapes as an exciting couple of days of cricket.
The A’s take on West Torrens who are seeking to win the T20, one day and two day treble. The teams had a tense clash earlier in the season with the Browns getting knocked over for 168 batting first and the Eagles scraping over the line 8 wickets down.
A Grade vs West Torrens at Woodville Oval, Sat Mar 25 and Sun Mar 26, 11:00am start
Team – Liam Scanlon, James Seward (wk), Jake Brown (c), Alex Ross, Simon Schwerdt, Hugh Cranendonk, Eddie Steele, Elliot Opie, Cameron Fatchen, Scott Aufderheide and Lloyd Pope
The Bradman Medal function was held during the week and Jake Brown finished 5th in the voting while John Dalton came in 7th. John was also selected in the Grade Team of the Year.
The C’s take on Adelaide Uni at the beautiful University Oval. The two teams fought out a see-sawing encounter a few weeks ago. Kensington was skittled for 98 batting first but followed up by rolling the Blacks for 63 to pull off a remarkable win and seal a finals berth. More drama was to follow in the 2nd dig with the Browns dismissed cheaply again and Uni finishing outright winners.
C Grade vs Adelaide Uni at University Oval, Sat Mar 25 and Sun Mar 26, 1:00pm start
Team – Dylan Mosey, David Brown, Michael Cotsios, Harrison Rahaley, Charlie Holmes, Jed Spence, Jamie Panelli, Brayden Frost (wk), Ash Eckermann, Eddy Greeves (c) and Steven Tanti

That time is almost upon us. Grand Final week is an exciting time, and it's what we all strive for. The chance to be Premiership Players. Before i put the team down, the BRADMAN / KAREN ROLTON Medal presentations were held last night. Some significant happenings for the Kensington Girls. The most notable was the fact that Sarah Lowe our Captain was named along with Emma Sampson, as the best players in the competition. It is an amazing achievement, and one that is well deserved. We are all so proud of Slowey. If you click on the link below it will take you to the story on the SACA Website
That wasn't the end of the good news as 3 of our girls were selected in the Team Of the Year.
Sarah Lowe, who was also named Captain, Eliza Doddridge and Sarah J Jameson. Fantastic achievements for the 3 girls and thoroughly well deserved. What will top it all off is a 1 Day Flag and to get the double done this year.
This weeks team to play against Port Adelaide at Port Adelaide Reserve. 11:50 Start. Be there early and get organised. Be ready to go by 11:00 at the latest. No afternoon tea required as SACA will provide, except maybe for Kathryn Doddridge as that food last week was awesome. And maybe Jane, as the Hummus was going down very well late in the day.
Congratulations to the 12 Girls going out this week, Commiserations to those who have missed out.
Sarah Lowe (C), Bridget Patterson, Katelyn Pope, Jordan Doecke, Eliza Doddridge, Shae Daly, Sarah Ferris, Sarah J Jameson, Amy Wiseman, Kelly Armstrong, Hannah Armstrong, Rachel Church
Good Luck Girls. Lets have a great game,
Kevin, Ditts and Andy
