Waverley College Cricket – 1st XI Announcement

Maxim Brooks acknowledges a classy 103 not out v St Aloysius

Maxim Brooks

Good luck and best wishes to the great men of Waverley College for this Saturday, as they compete against Cranbrook School in their first competitive trial match of the season. All cricketers have worked extremely hard in fine tuning their skills, in what has been a very short time frame since the easing of restrictions and a return to school sport. 

The past two weeks have seen many notable performances, and highly competitive cricket played. Carter Steyn retired at 32 on Saturday with a well-timed shot over the bowler’s head to go one bounce for four. Moreover, some aggressive cricket was exemplified by Liam Wood, as he pushed the ball around between fielders to keep the opposition on their toes.

Connor Andrews’ in-swingers were also hard to pick by the batsmen, as the middle stump became his closest companion. Meanwhile, in the Year 10 internal trial match, many were quietly disappointed when Hunter Elridge’s hat trick ball was pushed over the fingertips of mid off.

Lastly, a noteworthy observation has been the return of the likes of Thomas Walker and Andrew Maloney, who have ‘seen the light’ and returned to cricket this season to take part in the College’s oldest sport. 

A final congratulations to Eddie Regan who has been selected as the 1st XI Captain. The respect that Eddie receives from his peers, combined with his strong cricketing knowledge, will put the team in a competitive position this season. The team will be coached by Mr Kroll and Mr McNamara.
