With the half-way mark of the Season fast approaching, I don't know about you, but I'm really encouraged with our efforts thus far this season.
#1... Our First Grade side remains undefeated in the 2-day form of the game & are in 2nd place in the Competition. Matty & the boys are doing the Club proud.
#2... There is a positive buzz at training & the Coaches tell me the numbers are pretty good. The new training gear looks great.
#3... Our 5th Grade side is leading their Competition & look to be pretty competitive.
#4... We are currently placed 6th in the Club Championship... how good is that?! and with some solid performances through the grades we should improve that even further.
#5... Our Women's Brewer Shield team U17's is currently leading their Competition... they are a very young side with the girls ranging in age from 11 - 14 years... so things look good for the future.
#6... How good to see Pat Cummins back with the Cats for the Northern District & then the Sutherland games... great to see him score a ton.
#7... We have also just been successful in winning a Community Partnership Grant for $30,000 with the State Government... & in conjunction with Penrith City Council who have allocated funds for this project, talks are under way for a kitchenette & change room facility at Rance Oval. I'll keep you posted. New sun shelters near existing building at Rance have also been erected (just completed).
#8... Our PG's side has also performed admirably thus far this season.
May I take this opportunity to wish you all a happy & safe Christmas Season... enjoy the time with your families & may it be all you wish it to be.
PLEASE NOTE that as from today, 27th August, 2013, until further notice, all bookings for use of Indoor facilities at Howell should be made with the Secretary.
Official 2013/2014 trials begin this Saturday 31st August.
All new/current players are asked to be at Rance Oval Werrington at 8.45am for a 9am start.
Trials will continue over the next 3 Saturdays at Rance Oval from 9am, with a trial match scheduled for the weekend of the 21st September.
Green Shield trials are being held on the 7th and 14th September at Rance oval from 11am.
Kevin Geyer, coach of the squad, is welcoming all players under 16 years old to attend the session.
Penrith Cricket Club is pleased to announce we will be hosting the North Hobart Cricket Club as part of their pre-season tour to Sydney.
The current club of Panther export Jordan Silk, the Devils will be arriving in Penrith on Friday, September 6 and will be joining us for a BBQ and meet and greet at Howell Oval that evening. Please lock that date into your diary for a free club BBQ.
We will then be playing two matches against North Hobart at Howell Oval across the weekend:
- T20 match on the afternoon of Saturday, September 7.
- A 50 over match on Sunday, September 8.
We will be selecting and announcing teams for these matches the week prior, most likely at the conclusion of the pre-season training session on August 31. We will also confirm starting times and further logistics at that juncture.
Any player that will be unavailable for selection in these games are asked to advise Mathew Thompson immediately.
This trip is a tremendous opportunity for the Panthers and Devils to forge an association, and these games combined with our tour to Bathurst and intra-squad trial should ensure players benefit from high-level match practice as we prepare for the season proper.
