Senior Coaching OPPORTUNITY


Sunbury Cricket Club seek expressions of interest to appoint a Senior Men’s Cricket Coach and a Senior Women’s Cricket Coach for Season 2021/22. This is the perfect opportunity for coaches and experienced players looking toward a new challenge.

We are the only cricket club in Sunbury and surrounding areas that offer TURF cricket.

It is an exciting time for the Sunbury Cricket Club as it looks toward VTCA Division 3 in Men’s Cricket and in Women’s cricket the Roar look to further develop and continue to grow as it competes in both VTCA and GDCA local competition.

In Men’s cricket, Sunbury CC won both 1st and 2nd XI VTCA Division 4 Premiers in season 2020/21 earning promotion to VTCA Division 3. The 1st XI dominated the competition only losing one match for the season. The team has a mix of experience and youth, champion players and young stars of the future.

The success of the 2nd XI is the direct result of a strong junior program. The Premiership team comprised of six players under 21, four of which are from the U17 squad ably led by a mix of experience.

Overall Sunbury Cricket Club field five senior men’s teams and a full complement of junior teams. Season 20/21 presented many challenges however a by implementing a strong training program we were able to have four of the five senior teams play in finals. This was all complemented by the U17’s narrowly missing out on Grand Final day spelling a bright future for the club.

The Sunbury Roar Women’s team competed in the GDCA semi-finals and presented well in the VTCA. SCC was able to offer cricket each week for its players by entering in two competitions. Qualifying for finals in its first two seasons the Sunbury Cricket Club Women’s team continues to grow and develop.

Sunbury Cricket Club have shown success in playing turf cricket at Progress Reserve and look forward to the installation of a new turf wicket table as part of a resurfacing upgrade of Clarke Oval which has been earmarked for 2021/22. SCC stand alone in offering turf cricket in Sunbury.

SCC offer an excellent opportunity for Senior playing or non-playing coaches for:

  • Senior Men’s Cricket
  • Senior Women’s Cricket

Applicants are invited to apply in writing to the club Secretary sunburycc.vic@gmail.com

SCC – VTCA DIV 4 1ST AND 2ND XI PREMIERS


Sunbury Cricket Club finish season 2020/21 as VTCA Clark Shield Division 4 1st and 2nd XI Premiers.

Playing off in the best of 3 match Grand Finals both teams went into this weeks GF2 in the favourable position having won GF1 last Saturday. As last Sunday was deemed a wash out, the deciding rounds were scheduled for this weekend.

1st XI GF 2

Heavy rain during the week caused concern over the preparation of the wicket however with some minor reparation work early in the morning play was not effected. SCC Captain Steve Treweek continued his toss winning streak and without hesitation chose to bat.

In early trouble at 3/14 it took both Jordan Tentonello (13) and Lachlan Treweek (15) to settle the innings however it was Jason McGann’s 63 that proved to be the saviour with support from wicketkeeping all rounder Regan Connell finishing the innings on 20 no. featuring a magnificent cover drive. Not to be outdone, Jason sent the residents of Almurta Avenue ducking for cover with a trade mark 6 over mid wicket. The Roar posted 152, 30 runs more than in GF1.

Footscray United started their innings in similar fashion being 3/19 however from there offered little resistance being bowled all out for 43. Again Jason McGann destroyed the top order finishing with 4/12 off 7 overs, Jason McGowan continued his consistent good form with the ball, sometimes unplayable (3/21 off 8) and Jay King finishing the job for the Roar bowling an attacking line finishing with 3/10 of 5.2 overs.

SCC now progress onto VTCA Division 3 next season, as we grow and develop in this competition player retention will be front of mind for the incoming coaching panel.

2nd XI GF 2

We all new coming up against Aberfeldie Park, the Roar had a tough job to overcome the previous 2 time premiers of VTCA Div 4 2nds. However, as last seasons Div 5 premiers our team was far from overawed by the occasion with a solid win in GF1 the previous week.

Winning the toss and batting the Bears had a solid start seeing off the opening bowlers, it was Blake Watson making the initial breakthrough with help from Nick Smith taking a fine catch. Working their way to a strong position of 3/74 it was all downhill from there with a devastating spell from Kyle Corcoran (4/16 off 6 overs) and Murphy Boyd (3/17 off 7 overs) restricting the total by bowling out the opposition for only another 20 runs, all out for 94.

Some may say this could have been enough on the sometimes unpredictable Aberfeldie Park track however “cometh the moment, cometh the man”, Scott Yardley (36) took the challenge up to the Bears attack together with young gun Jake Egan (38 n.o) the Roar lost their 1st wicket with only 19 runs shy of the total required. Mitch McLean continued his good form and with Jake went on the finish the job in the 25th over with the Roar only losing the 1 wicket.

A magnificent win and certainly one to remember by a team with a mix of experienced players and a spread of youth the envy of all clubs in the district, all ably led by their well respected and popular Captain Sam Fisher.

Roar wants to continue momentum


courtesy Tara Murray, Star Weekly

Sunbury is confident its side will shape up well in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association division 4 season.

Runners-up in division 5 in their first season in the VTCA, the Roar has stuck with a similar line-up as it looks to go one better in the higher division.

New coach Scott Yardley said they were pleased with how things were looking to start the season.

Yardley, who is in his third stint as coach of the club, replaces Craig Ballinger, who stood down from the captain-coach role due to other commitments.

“It was a good nice sharp pre-season and then we were into it,” Yardley said.

“We’ve stuck with what we had and we’re confident in that and we have plenty of juniors coming through.

“It’s about developing the youth and we’ve got a good batch of under-17s.”

Yardley said they had looked to add one new player, Jack Landt. But he will miss the season after signing to play football in the Northern Territory.

Yardley said they would get an idea of where the top side sits in the competition over the first few weeks, having only played Moonee Valley before.

He said there was plenty of motivation to try and win a premiership after so many close misses.

Last season, the Roar was just two wickets away from claiming first innings points in the division 5 grand final after the first two days.

The second weekend of play was cancelled due to COVID-19, with Moonee Valley awarded the premiership being the higher-ranked team.

“We’re still hoping to play finals as a minimum and we are confident that we can get there with what we have,” Yardley said.

“St Andrews [who they played round one] played in the grand final last year and they’ve recruited well, so it shows us we’re in the ballpark.

“The bowlers could be playing in higher grades, so we’ve just got to get the runs on the board for them to bowl at.”

The Roar won their opening round match against St Andrews with the bowlers doing the job as they defended just 104.

Yardley said they always expected low scores early in the season and were confident of getting the win defending everything over 100.

He was happy with how new captain Stephen Treweek went in his first game in the role.

The Roar will only get stronger with last season’s captain-coach Craig Ballinger starting the season in the second XI.

Yardley said Ballinger remains one of their premier batters, he just needed to get a few hits under his belt to start the season.

With an influx of numbers this season at the club, the Roar is fielding an extra senior team, with three teams playing in the VTCA and the other two in the Gisborne and District Cricket Association.

On Saturday, the Roar faced Williamstown Congs.

The Congs were bowled out for 117 in the final over, with Jay King and Jason McGann taking three wickets each.

The Roar looked in slight trouble at 7-103 after losing a few quick wickets, but were able to recover and finished 7-121.

Nick Smith top scored with 44.

Other winners were St Andrews, Melton Centrals, Maribyrnong Park St Marys and Footscray United.

This is the perfect opportunity for experienced players looking toward a new challenge to make the change. We are the only cricket club in Sunbury and surrounding areas that can offer TURF cricket.
