WITH the business end of the cricket season finally here, the Shoalhaven Ex-Servicemen’s Cricket Club is more than pleased to acknowledge the success across all forms of cricket within the club.
Just prior to the mid-season break the Milo Cricket was completed with over 30 children enjoying the 10 week program, some eager players already asking about next year.
Last weekend both the junior teams played their last games after fighting hard in their respective semi-finals.
Many thanks to the volunteer parents who assisted with those teams throughout the year.
The club’s senior teams head into round 14 this week being the last game before the finals.
Every grade is in the finals mix after good consistent performances through the season.
Both second and third grade have put in strong performances as they hold a comfortable lead in the premiership table.
The Ex-Servicemen’s Cricket Club will be hosting a Pink Stumps Day this Sunday. The club has a strong history of fund-raising for the foundation.
Last year volunteers were proudly acknowledged as the second largest fund-raiser for this event.
Pink Stumps Day at Hayden Drexel Oval is the day when all the women get to play cricket all decked out in their pink gear.
It is a time when the men provide the supporting roles and the women get to have all the fun.
A key feature of this year’s event will be the major raffle drawn at 1.30pm. Former Ex-Servicemen’s quick Brad Parkinson from Radicool Air-conditioning has kindly donated a Panasonic 4.4kW deluxe inverter wall split air conditioning unit with five year warranty.
Get down to Hayden Drexel Oval to buy your tickets.
Best of luck for senior teams in the finals series and good luck to the club’s first grade team in the T20 final this Sunday.
