Stephen Becker's U13 side made it a year to remember as they won the NEJCA U13 Red Competition, well done guys!
Every player played a part in the 2016/17 U/13 Red premiership. On numerous occasions, seven or more players would get into double figures with the bat, and the wickets would be shared around the team. Our fielding was also a highlight with many runouts produced. The team only lost one game for the season which was against the team that Hope Valley defeated in the big one.In the Grand Final, Hope Valley batted first and compiled an unbelievable 9/223 of our 50 overs. This was a great example of the team sharing the load with the bat, with seven players getting into double figures, four of who made above 20 (William Reid, Dylan Baker, Kane Halfpenny and Noel Kumar). When it came to our turn with the ball, Walkerville were never really in the hunt losing early wickets before being bundled out for 90 in the 41st over. Dylan Baker backed up his outstanding batting with two early wickets, while Jacob Gibbs took three GF wickets again. Other wicket takers were Noel Kumar, Jesse Mitchell, William Reid, Nic Collins and Lewis De Ruvo.
