2014/15 Season is upon us


The super-keen Nunaboys have been at pre-season since late June and are now training on Tuesdays and Thursdays at Mahoneys Reserve.

This season we are fielding 6 senior teams and 6 junior teams plus Milo In2Cricket. The First XI are in a new grade called the Dorothy McIntosh Shield grade. This is the 3rd grade of the competiton. The First grade is the Ray McIntosh Shield, the second grade is the Howard Wilson Shield then our grade.The grades then move from A-F. Our seconds are in B Grade, 3rds in C Grade (all 80 overs), 4ths in E grade, 5ths in F Grade and 6ths (our One-Day XI) in One-Day B Grade (tbc).

Round 1 sees the First and Second XI's playing new clubs in the BHRDCA, the Firsts are playing Manningham and the Seconds are playing Wycliff.

Our Junior Program will see 2 Under 14, 2 Under 12 and 2 Under 10 teams all playing on Friday nights. The U14 grade will be graded this season and there will be some movement of players between grades as the season progresses. Rob Nash has done a great job running a stand at Forest Hill Chase recently and we will spend PE sessions with every grade at Burwood Heights Primary School and hand out fliers to prospective new Milo In2Cricket and junior players.

We also recently held a very successful fundraiser BBQ at Bunnings Nunawading under the expert guidance of Stu Hamilton. 

So we are all set to go and looking forward to a fantastic 2014/15

Premiership Captains

Premiership Captains Danny Martin and Marc Lamont


Our Under 12B's had a very comprehensive win in their Lightening Premiership Grand Final beating Templestowe by around 100 runs. Jayden West completed a great end of season batting run with an unbeaten 44 and Colin McDonough, still an Under 10, had perhaps his best game ever with 21 n.o. and 2 wickets. Michael Cowell also picked up 2 wickets. Here are the boys with coach Brad Gant.

The 1-day legends also had a comprehensive win against Glen Waverley Hawks. We finished the season in fantastic form with well over 700 runs in our last 3 games. Nuna made 7/243 (Matt Jenkin 51ret, Scott Jackson 49, Scott Millar 28, Andy Siebel 27, Danny Martin 25, Michael Cardamone 25no and defeated Glen Waverley Hawks who made 166, Leigh Callander 3/23, Scott Millar 3/34, Michael Cardamone 2/39 were the main wicket takers. Great outfield catching was a highlight of the fielding and the consistent batting and bowling all year a real factor in the team's success. Scotty Millar has also won the competition batting average in that grade with 489 runs @ 61. Great work Scotty, his best season in over 20 at Nuna!
