Old boy cricketer: Charlie Wakim

From 1st XI Cricket Coach, John Boyd

It is with great pleasure that I let the school community know that Old Boy Charlie Wakim (Class of 2009) has been contracted to the Tasmanian Cricket Association for the upcoming Domestic State cricket competition.

Charlie played three years in the school 1st XI, the last as Captain. He scored 3 centuries in his time in the 1st XI. The most notable is his school record 234 not out which will surely take some beating. Since leaving school Charlie has been playing 1st Grade for the UNSW, captaining the side in 2016, as well as being a member of the Sydney Sixers squad.

He travelled to Ireland in 2015 playing for the Clontarf Cricket Club as the overseas professional. He made history at the club being the first batsman to score a double century. His season also helped this club to win the competition.

We congratulate Charlie on his move to Tasmania and wish him luck for the coming season and for further representative honours in the years to come.
