SCC Presentation night 2015/16 

What a great night was had by all. It was really good to see everyone dressed up for our clubs night of nights. Congratulations to all award recipients, there were some great performances during a testing season. Our senior team recovering after Christmas with some good wins and our grade teams showing plenty of promise for the future.

Sunbury Cricket Club recognised Jim Pearson and Marten Kelders with Life Memberships for outstanding service to the club.

Jim Pearson has been a keen and well respected  Captain and player over many years culminating as Captain of the  2011/12  F Grade Premiership and has had the privilege of coaching and playing along side all three of his children in the senior ranks.

Jim has been an enthusiastic parent and contributor to the Junior program as Coordinator for 9 years assisting all the way from Milo cricket  and has coached through all Junior age groups, with the help of Deb, cricket is a real family affair.

Jim’s involvement extended to the GDCA having taken up roles such as Junior delegate for 10 years and sat on the GDCA Excecutive for 6 years, 2 years as GDCA Junior Treasurer and 2 years as GDCA Female cricket coordinator. He also extended himself as a representative coach including the GDCA Representative Girls team.

In recent times Jim has served on the SCC Committee as Treasurer for 2 seasons and continues his cricket opening the batting and still shows a real passion for the game and the progression of our younger players.

Marten Kelders first started at our club in the U16’s in 1977/78. Working his way through the ranks as an opening bowler he played his first A Grade match in 1980. In the following years Marty played several seasons with mixed success before relocating to Adelaide with work. On his return in the late 80’s had changed his game to include off spin bowling.

In a last wicket effort Marty hit the winning run in the 1988/89          B Grade Premiership, played in the Premiers and Champions 1992/93 B Grade team  and retired soon after the tied C Grade Final win of 1998/99 at Clarke Oval. He still rues playing in the 1990/91 McIntyre Grand Final loss as a major disappointment and lost opportunity.

Marty had served on the committee for 11 years taking on tasks such as GDCA club delegate, writing newsletters, sponsorship and running raffle draws and served on the GDCA Tribunal Panel for many years,  2 as Chairman. Having returned to the club after a 15 year absence Marty has been Secretary for the past 3 seasons and continues to contribute where he can and still manages to play the odd game.
