Finals beckon at Nuna

With 2 rounds of cricket to go both the senior and junior sections of the club are well poised to have a significant presence in finals.

 

Check out the ladders here.

The First XI are sitting on top with a last round match vs Heatherdale possibly to determine the minor premier. The boys are not playing their best cricket but are still winning and an ugly win is still a win. The 2's beat the second side outright in an amazing result and are just half a game outsode the 4 with games against lower placed sides to close out the season. It is up to them now. The same goes for the 3rds who sit 4th with games against other top 4 sides to finish the season and the 4ths who are in a very similar position. The 5ths are second and look like one of the teams to beat. The 1-day side have struggled in the higher grade this season and many of last year's premiership players have not played much or at all.

In the Juniors, the U14A's are second, their two losses by a total of 7 runs. They are a strong side and, if they play their best cricket, will be hard to beat. The U14B's are 5th on percentage and can sneak in if they win their last 2. The same goes for the U12Bs. The U12C's are a young and inexperienced side and playing tough opposition each week. They will all be better players next season.

Fingers crossed, with 8 teams in finals contention, we will all be very busy in March.

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!

Future of the Club

Our Milo In2Cricket season has now completed. A terrific season for all under the guidance of Paul Allen and David Templeton. We look forward to seeing many of these boys and girls playing for the Pirates soon. A big thanks also to Lucas Dew and Douglas Ahearn for their willing assistance. It is great to see these young men helping the children.
