Congratulations to Tom Lamont (1sts)  and Henry Carmichael (2nds) who have been selected in the combined Green Shield teams for their match this Wednesday at Mona Park Auburn.

(Tom Lamont in action)

Tom stated his claim to a spot with a number of good performances up to the last round, however his 212 not out against Sydney University would have certainly put him high on the selectors list. Tom finished with 375 runs at an average of 75.

Henry performed well with both bat and ball and finished with 116 runs at 23 and 10 wickets at 13.10.

Also our manager Mark Carmichael has been appointed as manager of the Second XI team as a thank you for his excellent managerial work with the team.

James Ryan gets recognition from umpires

It is not often that under 16 year old cricketers get to play matches with Pura Cup umpires, and that occurred for the Gordon Green Shield team in their match earlier this season against Bankstown when Darren Goodger was one of the umpires at Beauchamp.

(James Ryan pulls off a great stumping against Bankstown)

After the match the umpires spoke with our captain and club officials to congratulate the team on their spirit of cricket during the game.

In their match report submitted to the SCA, the umps made the following comments'

'In the 18th over of the Gordon innings, batsman James Ryan had the opportunity to take overthrow runs. He was called to do so by his partner at the crease, but declined as the ball had touched the toe of his bat after it had been thrown at the bowler's end wicket by a member of the Bankstwon side. James's partner did not realise this had occurred. This was a fine piece of sportsmanship on James's part as the ball only just brushed his bat and there was no obvious deflection. His action epitomised the game's true spirit, ahead of his team's fortunes, as the opportunity was there to take at least two runs as overthrows'

Also numerous members of the Gordon side applauded and congratulated Daniel Sams (Bankstown) on a fine innings immediately after he was dismissed' (end of quote)

Well done James on you fine attitude and we look forward to your involvement next season in both club teams and the Academy.

PS. Gordon won the match by one run...

190 minutes off 152 balls to blast Gordon to 3 for 352

There is one record in the one hundred and three years of Gordon cricket that everyone says will never be broken, however at least Tom Lamont got more than half way there. The record I am referring to is the 320 runs scored by Ken Eastwood in a Green Shield one day match in 1951. The same season Ken scored 137 in another match and a total of 900 runs for that Green Shield season.

(Tom is congratulated as he leaves the field after his 221 not out)

Tom Lamont has definitely posted a modern day record with the second highest score ever for a Gordon Green Shield player of 212 not out at Sydney University Oval on Sunday January 13.

This score now passes a score of 144 by Jason Jarrett in 1988 and 137 by David Edwards, the brother of Rob Edwards, in 2001.

Tom innings was an classic example of controlled hitting in the early stages and then an onslaught towards to the end. Tom's innings came of 152 balls and included 18 fours and 7 sixes. There is no doubt the students peaceful afternoon in the surrounding buildings would have been significantly disturbed while Tom was at the crease.

Tom shared an excellent partnership for the second wicket of over 150 with Alex Shaw who scored 61 after moving into the opening role having spent most of his time in the lower order during the season.

(Alex Shaw avoids a bouncer during his 61)

The Greenies scored 3 for 352 and defeated Sydney University who finished with 9 for 119 when rain stopped play at 4.45pm. 

A report on the match will be forwarded soon by James Ryan.

Congratulations to Tom on a great innings and certainly one that Ken Eastwood would be proud of. Ken is living in Melbourne and at 73 is still involved in cricket as an umpire.


Gordon 3 for 352 (Tom Lamont 212 not out, Alex Shaw 61, Chad Soper 32, Henry Carmichael 20 not out defeated

Sydney University 9 for 119 (Tom Ledgerwood 2 for 25, Declan Jacrot 2 for 18, Henry Carmichael 1 for 16, Justin Avendano 1 for 20, Dan Lake 1 for 22)

Green Shield team gets up by one run

Green Shield team gets up by one run

'A victory for the ages' ' but only if you are under 16 years!

Gordon home by 1 in a thriller!

At 9/195 and chasing Gordons' 9/196 Bankstown were confident! With young Darren Jayaskera steaming in for the first ball of the 60th and final over, the crowd hushed' a full ball' a cover drive' a diving catch'. victory to Gordon, in a pulsating Green Shield match.

So ended an excellent game of cricket with the 'Greenies' defeating a strong Bankstown line up by one run! A full match report will follow however the boys are to be congratulated on a great performance. Club legend Michael Falk was heard to utter, 'never in doubt', although not everyone shared his confidence.

A great win which sets the scene for the Green Shield boys who face Blacktown in their next match on January 3.

(Tom Ledgerwood bowls, James Ryan appeals for a stumping, NSW umpire Darren Goodger agrees and the boys celebrate)    



Since our Poidevin Gray victory against Bankstown on October 28, club supporter Dick Huey has referred to that game as the 'Act of God" match when we went from 5 for 61 to somehow score 295. Well we are not sure what the Bankstown club will call this game. We will leave that to your imagination.

The game ebbed and flowed all day with Gordon starting slowly, accelerating, slowing down again and eventually posting a good score at Beauchamp with the slow outfield. Bankstown followed a similar pattern, however lost three wickets at a time on three occasions with Declan Jakrot collecting 3 wickets in one over.
