Teams announced for Round 1 vs Bankstown - Glenn Winsor to make 1st grade debut

The GDCC selectors have announced the teams for the first round of the season against Bankstown. First grade is away at Bankstown Oval and will feature the debut of former Gordon Green Shield player Glenn Winsor. The team also features the return to first grade of Max Newman who apart from one game last season played the full 2015-16 season as our first grade wicket keeper. Congratulations Max.

Glenn Winsor in action for Gordon Green Shield 

Apart from Max and Glenn the team contains our regular first graders with the exception of Cam Eccles who is unavailable until Round 3.

Glenn, who lives in Singleton, was initially recruited as one of two country players allowed to participate in the 2016/17 AW Green Shield Competition for Gordon. He produced dominant performances with both bat and ball, before succumbing to a stress fracture of the back, which prematurely terminated his season.

Josh Staines in action

After a successful rehabilitation programme with Cricket NSW, Glenn returned to the field last season and gained selection in the Australian U17 team. In a cruel twist of fate, Glenn was struck down again with a serious knee injury, which Iimited his appearances for the Gordon Poidevin Gray side. Eventually he was again cruelly forced to curtail his season.

Another rehab programme with Cricket CNSW and an offseason in the gym, has seen Glenn return to the field fully fit and relocated to 'Stag House' for the forthcoming season. With his selection in the first grade side for Round One, a deserved triumph of 'attitude' and 'desire' has been achieved.

It is a great story for any aspiring young player to emulate and very impressive that, despite serious injuries along the player, from Green Shield to First Grade in two seasons is a great example to us all. Glenn has also been selected in the squad for the Country NSW/ACT team for the Australian Under 19 Championships.  All the very best Glenn!

Our second grade side also contains some exciting new talent with two more country players and a fast bowler from Macquarie Uni First XI.

Josh Staines has joined the club as a 17 year old keeper/batsman who played first grade for Wagga RSL and captained the Country NSW/ACT Under 17 team. Josh is also in the Under 19 squad with Glenn.

Lachlan Barnsley

In addition to Josh, Lachlan Barnsley has also been selected in Second Grade. Lachlan is doing Year 12 at Trinity CC in Lismore and is also in the Country NSW/ACT Under 19 squad. He is an opening batsman and last season played first grade in Lismore.

Rounding out the newcomers in seconds is Ashwin Premkumar who took 20 wickets in Macquarie Firsts last season and also scored 330 runs @27 batting in the lower order. Ashwin has shown excellent form in the trials.

There are also several new players in the lower grades including Raman Phoonie, a top order bat from Coffs Harbour and Ollie Sutton who has joined us from the Formby club in England where he scored 1095 runs and took 34 wickets over English summer. Ollie played with Nick Miller for Formby.

Also great to see Liam McElduff return to Gordon after a season away. Welcome back Liam and we look forward to a mountain of runs.

The legendary Richard Stobo came down to practice on Thursday to present Glenn with his First Grade cap

More details of the other new players will be provided in the weeks ahead. Also for those not aware, Beauchamp Park is undergoing an upgrade with a return hopefully in the new year before the end of the season. Our Fifth Grade and Colts sides will be playing at Castle Cove Oval in the meantime.

Match report for trial at Mandalong Saturday September 1st

Match report for trial at Mandalong Saturday September 1st

We witnessed an exceptional day of cricket played in the right spirit under beautiful weather.With some rain falling yesterday, Stirling Hamman did a magnificent job to cover and prepare the deck, after returning only on Thursday from the UK. We were only delayed by 45 mins and obviously it was a good deck to bowl on for the initial early couple of hours. The bowlers did not let Paddy down.

Mandalong Cricket Ground

Will Calov and Ashwin Premkumar took quick wickets to have Monas side struggling for 3-16. At this stage Sam Schembri-Green joined Lachlan Donaldson and in an exciting partnership from these two Greenies, they took the score to 54. We must remember that these youngsters were against an experienced attack on a bowler friendly wicket. Lachlan scored an excellent 33 with 6 fours and really looked the part in difficult conditions, facing a very handy attack on a tough deck. In particular I must mention our new young 20yo quick Ashwin Premkumar who took 3-14 off 5 overs Tall, fit, athletic and strong, with a very easy action, he showed much promise in the early net trials. It was even better to see him today in full flight under match conditions and maintaining a very brisk pace throughout.

Nick Andreou in action last season

Manus Chauhan also bowled superbly for his 2-5 off 5 overs and hopefully this may be the start of a big year. Special mention must also go to two young bowlers again from the Greenies. Jaiden Gray took 2-17 off 5 overs of really promising leggies and Kartik Khetarpaul a very tall (and growing) young quick, who bowled 5 overs at a brisk pace for 0-12.A top cameo knock was also played by Prashan Seneviratne towards the end of the innings. He scored 29 and it included 2 sixes and 2 fours. After lunch the wicket was now dry and settled and the bats relished the change. Michael Fletcher (24 ret) and Riley Behlevanas (also 24 ret) opened and set the foundation for the win. Michael in particular struck the ball beautifully for so early in the season. In strode Nick Andreou who punished anything loose for his 33 ret, with 2 sixes and 4 fours. Joining the fray came Will Calov with 25 and Manus Chauhan 19 ret, completing a good double. The bowlers deserve praise as well, with Danusha Seneviratne 1-12 off 6 and the young tall Greenie, Callum Bladen 1-9 off 4, the most successful. 

It was really exciting to see a now injury free Callum bowling at a brisk pace with such accuracy. Callum missed all the Greenies games last season due to injury and is definitely one to watch this season in both Grade and Greenies, particularly as he continues growing. Also special mention must go to our new young LA finger spinner Conor Clift, who bowled extremely well in his debut game for 0-5 off 4 overs. I am sure he will be much relieved and we will ask Michael Falk to coach and monitor his progress. 

Another good performance came from Lachlan Donaldson who kept very tidily after his excellent innings and the beauty here is that he is prepared to work very hard on both his game and his fitness. Special thanks must go to Stirling Hammon, for providing the ground and a beautiful lunch and the Club will follow this through after next weekend. 

Also thank you Michael Falk for organising and umpiring all day. He also offered the players an excellent summary at the end of the game of how to improve their running between wickets and which hand to hold the bat in, whilst backing up.

Will Calov in action last season

Club coach Trevor Chappell would have endorsed these words of wisdom – thank you Michael. And thank you to the senior captains in Paddy Effeney and David Monaghan, who controlled both the bowling and batting to perfection and ensured everyone was involved all day. One last thank you goes to all those in attendance, from the players to the supporting parents, who blended in so perfectly. 

This ensured the game was played in a most enjoyable spirit and it was an absolute delight to see everyone mixing so well, throughout the day. This is the culture that the Gordon Club is promoting and it made us all so proud to see the smiling faces from both the players and supporters. The Mandalong ground definitely promotes this atmosphere and to have a good deck and a perfect outfield  in early September is a perfect start to the season – thank you Stirling. 


Monas X1: 156 all out in 40 overs: Lachlan Donaldson - 33, Prashan Seneviratne -  29, Callum Bladen - 12, Sam Schembri-Green - 10  (2nd innings Arvin Niranjan - 17, Mitch Kleem -12). Ashwin Premkumar 3-14 off 5, Manus Chauhan 2-6 off 5, Jaiden Gray 2-17 off 5, Will Calov 1-8 off 4, Paddy Effeney 1-8 off 2, Naji Haider 1-14 off 3.

Paddys X1: 5-163 off 40 overs: Nick Andreou 33 ret, Will Calov 25, Michael Fletcher 24 ret, Riley Behlevanas 24 ret, Manus Chauhan 19 ret;  Danusha Seneviratne 1-12 off 6 , Callum Bladen 1-9 off 4, Shiv Rana 1-31 off 4, Conor Clift 0-5 off 4.

Final update from Tony for our UK tourists

Final update from Tony for our UK tourists

With our English tourists returning from their winters in the UK, Tony Wilson wrote a final summary during the week, but then couldnt resist and update from their final performances. So the first part is as at 28th August for each player, followed by a quick review from Saturday 1st September performances.

Our tourists are only one more game away before they return to our shores. I believe that all of them are going to return as superior cricketers for their UK experience. They have performed brilliantly and I am sure they will all show us this rapid improvement in Sydney grade. Here is a a summary.

Nick Miller at Holmesdale CC in the Kent Division One League:

Nick has had an excellent experience at Holmesdale despite the problem with his back. It has restricted his bowling since end June and he will have the necessary scans on his return. Despite this and being the typical Club man that we all know he is, he has still scored 398 runs@27 in only 17 innings with 29 fours and 5 sixes. This did not include his massive 156no in a friendly. In his early bowling he took 13w@24 off 69 overs. A fit Nick will have a big impact on our Club this season and we all remember his excellent debut 1st grade game v Saints last season. He apparently has settled into the UK social scene rather well and although (as you all know) I am not one to gossip, there are unconfirmed reports that he may bring back (or will be visited by) some of the fruits of his labour at some stage this season.

Final update from weekend

Nick Miller: Scored 35 on Sat, which takes him to 435r@27 plus 156no in a friendly - for a total of 591. Come back soon Nick and get that back sorted out. 

Ryan Meppem (19yo) at North Petherton CC in the Somerset West England League:

This young man has had an excellent all-round performance for his UK Club. He scored 622 runs @ 26 in 26 innings with a top of 83. Ryan also took 37w@19, which was 22% of his teams wickets with a best of 4-18 and 4-22. It was noticeable when given a good early bowl, the wickets mounted. Thus what a tremendous experience and confidence booster this will be for Ryan on his return to Gordon – really well done. 

Final update from weekend

Quiet day on Sat with 2-72 and 2 runs and has now finished his season with 625r@25 and has taken 39w@20 and that is a fabulous all-round performance. 

Cameron New at Worthing CC in the Sussex League:

A really memorable season for Cameron who opened for a team that won only 3 matches. He scored a wonderful 725 runs @ the top av of 40 in 22 innings. During these knocks he hit a massive 100 fours and 10 sixes, scoring 19% of his teams runs. We won’t talk about his leggies at this stage. Another player who apparently really enjoyed the social UK scene, or so I am told on Facebook. What a great experience for Cam and a perfect forerunner for Gordon grade this coming season. 

Final update from weekend

37 runs on Sat has taken his season total to 762r@40. This is a magnificent effort from Cam and includes an incredible stat of 104 fours and 11 sixes – which equates to 482 runs in boundaries. I think Cam you had better meet up with Millsy and Shooter to look after them before you return. 

Daniel Chillingworth at Stokesley CC in the North Yorkshire/South Durham Central League.

This 18yo youngster has had a sensational season in the UK. How many times do you hear that leggies always struggle in English conditions. Before the left-arm nothings point out, I realise that it was an  unusually dry Summer over there. However Dan took an incredible 53 wickets at the amazing av  of only 14, off 221 overs and this was 27% of his teams wickets. He took two 5 wicket hauls including  a 5-36 off 15 overs. He also managed to score 298 runs @ 15 in 23 innings. Yes I am excited to hear  about a young leggie securing so many wickets in the UK and can’t wait to watch him on his return. Dan will play for his Newcastle club this season however will be playing in all our PG games – bring it on.

Final Update from weekend

Dan Chillingworth: Took 4-47 off 15 overs of leggies on Sat to bring his seasons total  bag to 57 wickets @ only 14. He then scored 51 runs for a total of 349@17. I am sorry but I will keep saying what a magnificent effort from this exciting youngster – bring him down soon to Gordon please Thommo.

Fraser Wilson at Rowledge CC in the Hampshire Southern Premier League:

This really talented youngster had a frustrating wait to have a regular hit, due to early washouts.  Then in only 17 innings he still managed to score 353 runs @ 21 with an excellent 45 fours and 6 sixes and a top score of 66. This experience will do wonders for him and the very interesting aspect is that he has kept wickets for the second part of the season. This could be very useful for his return to grade as apparently he kept for reps in the U15/16’s. Of course my lips must be sealed, however I have heard from a very reliable source (no not Facebook), that Fraser has done a Nick Miller over there and really enjoyed the UK social life – enough said and so he should enjoy life as an 18yo.

Final Update from weekend

Wow what an innings from Shooter on Sat, scoring 119 off only 128 balls with 16 fours and 2 sixes - plus 2 caught behinds with the gloves. That now takes him to 472r @ 26 hitting 61 fours and 8 sixes. If we include the 30 runs that he scored for the Pres X1, he then moves to that much sought after 500 run season milestone. What chance did this poor youngster have when christened Shooter as a middle name at birth. There is a strong rumour from a very reliable source, that Millsy was on the phone last night to organise a break out on the social side to celebrate the ton and get very loose within this week. Remember you are taken Shooter and have attached a shot just in case you forget.
