There will also be access to tuition from our newly appointed Development Coach, John Marshall. Our aim is to have the practice sessions and matches run as smoothly as possible so we welcome any parents, coaches and volunteers that are prepared to help.

Phil Sewell Golf Day

Phil Sewell Golf Day  26 April 2013

Phil Sewell 

The call went out to the Sunbury sporting community in response to an unfortunate incident where Phil Sewell was tragically hit by a car leaving him with life threatening injuries. Presently Phil is slowly recovering from his injuries and is experiencing complications but has a positive long term outlook. Current day members and former team mates of Phil from both Sunbury Cricket Club and Sunbury Football Club joined forces together with family and friends to hold a fund raising day to help Phil through this difficult time.

Goonawarra Golf Club offered the use of their course and bbq facilities to host a fund raising event. A 4 member per team Ambrose competition with a total of 14 teams teed off in pleasant conditions and in good humour. There was a good spread of golfers of all levels and ages, all willing participants ready to contribute to this worthy cause.

Outright winners on the day : Patty Morganti, Dean Surkitt, Rhino and Peter Hickey

Longest drive: Darryl Taylor     Nearest the pin: Ryan Charity

Fund raising activities on the day included a drinks truck delivering drinks to thirsty golfers during their round. Fines were imposed for misdemeanors such as air swings, not making the ladies tee, hitting a ball in the water and falling into a bunker! (nice one Uma)   At the club house a bbq was on offer, a raffle and silent auction was held. Contributions through the green fees and donations for the raffles and auctions all combined to make the day a huge success.

Phil’s father Greg Sewell addressed the gathering and expressed many thanks on behalf of Phil and his family for the support as he continues his recovery. Many thanks also go to the organising committee and those who helped out on the day and also to the management and staff of Goonawarra Golf Club for their assistance and use of facilities.

2012/13 McIntyre Cup Grand Final – update days 3 & 4

2012/13 McIntyre Cup Grand Final – update days 3 & 4


GDCA rules of play for a McIntyre Grand Final state that if more than 45 minutes of play is lost due to rain then the match reverts to the ordinary rules of cricket. The team batting first can continue it’s innings until all out, meaning there would be no compulsory closure of a first innings on tea of the second day. A fourth day is available in order to achieve at least a first innings result. A drawn game would result in United being awarded the cup as they finished higher on the ladder than Sunbury. For Sunbury to win it must force a result.

Day 3

At the start of the days play United’s 7/292 off 99 overs presented our team in the royal blue with the task ahead of them requiring quick wickets. Unfortunately that wasn’t to be the case, Hughes (57) resumed after retiring hurt last week, adding 37 to his score supported by Smith-Hayes (20) and Skovdam (41).  United’s tail wagged in a costly session, amassing a huge total all out for 406 of 134.5 overs. Leading the attack and with the lions share of the work, Jason McGann finished the innings with an impressive 45 o,16 m, 5/89, Paul Newton competed hard 37 o, 9 m, 2/110, Heath Boffey providing support 18 o, 2 m, 2/66 and Steve Treweek bowled tidy spells  for 13.5 o, 4 m, 1/48.

The start of Sunbury’s innings didn’t go to plan with fill in opener DamienLake being run out with the score on 2. Anthony Riggio and Paul Webber provided not only entertainment but took on the United attack and set the scene in a positive manner. With the score on 78,  Riggsy (42) after a scare when skying a ball off Skvodam failed to capitalise and soon after was caught behind off Morrison. Webbs continued his innings with cover drives straight out of the training manual but just as it seemed he was well on top of the attack a slower ball from Morrison took the bails and ended his innings on 47  (fow 95). Dave Burrowes departed for 8  skying a hook shot straight down the throat of fine leg. Matt Burrowes (19) and Heath Boffey(3) are used to digging in and providing rear guard action through out the season provided some resistance,  but today just wasn’t meant to be. Jason McGann (20) and Steve Treweek (3) not out overnight, total at 6/147.

Day 4

A mammoth task was ahead of our team and almost immediately as play began hearts sank in the royal blue camp as Jason McGann edged a ball to slip in the second over of the day. Steve Treweek batted with resilience for a well made 19 and Paul Newton (18) played an entertaining cameo however the task proved to be too great and the side was all out for 196 off 61.1 overs. United’s Morrison 18 o, 6 m, 4/50 and Powell 5 o, 1 m, 2/16 tore the heart out of the Sunbury batting line up and should be congratulated on their effort for their team.

As it turned out things didn’t turn out our way in the end as the task proved to be too vast  but there was a lot to be proud of and certainly the commitment to the contest and the effort could not be questioned. We have completed the 2012-13 season with the feeling of unfinished business and a hunger for success to bring into next season. Well done guys you made us all proud.

The club in the royal blue, our club, the Sunbury Cricket Club is back, a force to be reckoned with in the GDCA!

Congratulations must go out to our adversaries Sunbury United for an excellent season. They justifiably started as firm favourites in the Grand Final and proved far too good in the end. United have been the benchmark of the GDCA in recent times winning their third premiership in four years. This kind of success does not happen by accident.

The recipe for success is as true today as it was when I played at SCC as a youngster in the late 70’s. Heading the list is  junior development and player retention. From then it is leadership, hard work on the track and commitment. Sunbury Cricket Club is currently reaping the reward of some hard work behind the scenes from it’s Junior program and having made the McIntyre Cup level have pulled together a formidable senior team. Lets get behind Jason McGann and the coaching team and prepare ourselves in the preseason to take the next step. The journey along the road of ultimate success is a lot of  hard work but believe me the reward makes it all the more worthwhile. Jump on board….

See you on the cricket arenas of the world

Marty Kelders
