Rep Player of the Year: Aidan Cahill(Westlawn)
Played in CRJCA Under 16’s NCCC interdistrict team and was unable to play in the GF due to higher representative duties. He was selected to represent the Combined Independent Schools (CIS) U15s at the All Schools trials in Sydney in December. In January, he represented the North Coastal Zone at the Bradman Cup in Bathurst (NSW Country U16 Championships). North Coastal Zone finished 3rd, with their only loss coming against eventual winners Central Coast. In February, he represented NSW at the All Schools U15 National Championships in Maroochydore on the Sunshine Coast. Once again, Aidan's team finished 3rd with their only loss coming against the eventual winners (Victoria Metro). Aidan's best bowling was against Western Australia when he took 4 for 18. Earlier this month we heard that Aidan has been selected to play in the U16 State Challenge in Sydney in April (to be contested by 2 country teams and 2 metro teams).
McDonalds Encouragement Awards
Thomas Boehm from u10s, he's a good little cricketer and a good kid, who always plays and trains in the right spirit. First year, just enjoys it and soaks everything up in a quiet, unassuming way, that's about it really.
Ethan Lucas as player of the season due to his consistent performances as well as his leadership throughout the year. He has demonstrated great sportsmanship not only to his own team mates, many of whom are playing in the younger grades but to all other teams ensuring that etiquette and fair play was adhered to at all games. His encouragement was infectious and he developed into the captaincy role with ease. There were a few other player’s names from other teams that came up but we feel Ethan overall captured the true spirit of the game of cricket.
Kyron Nipperess is a very deserving winner. Has come through the system from milo, T20Blast then now in his second year of under twelves. A great kid to coach who listens and always tries hard, nothing seems to faze him and he does not get upset if things aren't going his way.
Rowan McPherson It was Rowans first year of cricket this season and he has excelled. His commitment to training and taking on the advice of our senior players has been great. He is a pleasure to coach with great sportsman ship. He has a great future ahead of him.
Jimmy Ford; Always quick to pat a mate on the back and cheer em' on. First to help out the other team if short on players to field. Week in and out shows sportsmanship and is committed to training. Jimmy consistently displays a positive attitude and greets with a smile! Also shakes hands and acknowledges players, coaches and umpires alike by thanking them for their time.
