Teams for Round 3 vs Northern Districts announced
The unavailable list at the bottom of this announcement probably tells the story of the difficulty to pick teams on a week by week basis in a grade club. 24 unavailable players. I have never heard that before. It is however HSC time and we very much respect this priority. But if you throw in as well representative selection, visa approvals, weddings and injury that might just cover it.
Firstly congratulations to Charlie Stobo who has been selected in the Cricket Australia IX for the remainder of the JTL One day Cup. His availability for either day of the round against ND’s will depend both on his match day selection and the completion of the tournament. He has been left out until there is any confirmation of availability.
We are also welcoming our two English imports who have arrived down under and will be playing in this round. As previously advised Matt Parkinson is joining us from Lancashire where he has played 9 first class matches and 9 T20’s. Matt has been selected in the first grade team.
We also welcome Chris Searle who has played for the Hampshire 2nd XI and is a fast bowler of note. Chris has been selected in the third grade team.
Also in First Grade we welcome back James Kennedy and Matt Junk who were both delayed in starting the season and they replace Alex Patterson who will play seconds and Sohan Boraleesa who is back in Darwin awaiting Visa clearance.
In second grade Alex Patterson replaces Austyn Nugent who is unavailable due to his HSC. With Charlie Stobo going into the CAXI last Saturday and missing the second week of the match against Wests, Dan Stickland filled in for him for the Saturday. Dan now returns to seconds, Matt Keevers to thirds, Will Calov to fourths and Sam Watts to fifths.
As far as the rest of the changes in Fifths and Colts who would need a Masters in People Movement to work out the changes and shortages (at the moment) due to availability. I will leave that to you to decipher.
So here are the teams:
