Introduction to the 2011/12 Junior Cricket Season

Hi everyone

 Yes it is the middle of football season but cricket season is rapidly approaching, with the league (GDCA) Annual General Meeting in July.

 In the off season Sunbury Cricket Club has been very busy and have elected a new committee which has a major focus of rebuilding the cricket club.

 The new committee is:

 President:                                   Scott Yardley

Secretary:                                   David Thomas

Treasurer:                                   Jim Pearson

Senior Vice President:                 Dominic Douglas

Junior Vice President:                  Adam Kirk

Committee Member:                    Brent McDougall

Committee Member:                    Patrick Tyler

One of the main objectives of the committee is for the club to be more inclusive to our juniors and the families of players (both senior and junior).  To this end the committee includes past or present junior coaches Dom Douglas and I as well as Paddy Tyler, who plans to coach juniors this season.  In addition Terry Landt has kindly agreed to attend committee meetings and act as a conduit between junior players/ parents and the committee and to assist with organisation of family friendly activities throughout the season.

The committee recognises that it is through the juniors that the ongoing viability and strength of the club is maintained.

As always we welcome any parent or friend of junior players to take an active part in the club and would appreciate anyone volunteering to assist in a coaching or administration role as the season gets closer.  You do not have to have any experience as we will guide you and assist wherever possible.

Also we are actively seeking sponsorship for the club so if you have a business (or your employer might be interested) we are offering sponsorship packages which include advertising space on our website, letter heads and club shirts as well as many minor sponsorship arrangements.  Sponsorship assists in keeping registration fees to a minimum so if you can help please do.

The club has a new web site at and future notices will be published there. While the site is still in development, I recommend you take a tour of the web site and see where the club is headed.  I hope that you will all be back next season to be a part of it.

If you have any queries, wish to volunteer or would like to discuss sponsorship, please give me a call on 9740 5975 or 0402 292 371.

2011/2012 Seniors Pre-season training

Well here we are half way through the football season and I’m here to bug you about… cricket.

We want to invite all past, present and new players to come down and join us for pre-season training which will kick off on Sunday August 7 at 9am. For the first 4 weeks we have booked the indoor cricket centre (Action

Sports, 63 Vineyard Rd Sunbury) nets between 9 & 11 am. After that we’ll be down at our home ground nets for the next couple of week until we get enough light to start our regular Tuesday and Thursday training.

Look forward to seeing every one down there and build towards a successful season.

Over the next couple of weeks the GDCA will advise the clubs the format for the Juniors for this season and we’ll publish training dates and the team structures, so stay tuned.

For more information please email or call David on 0437 432 228.

Cheers from the committee.
