    DVCA Off-Season 2021

    Long time since I’ve been here and I’m not about to make it a habit. However up at Reccc we have a club coach (Ross Davies), a coach for the ones (Darren Ward), a coach for the Two’s in Tom MacDonald and John Jackson, and club Captains with assistance from a few old wise heads helping with the...

    DVCA Off-Season 202021

    State of Emergency has nothing to do with lockdown. It is about enforcing quarantine periods, mask wearing, Covid safe plans for work places. Etc. We could have no SOE and still be in stage 4.

    Money Shield 2019/2020

    They went about it nicely. Bill making 90 odd is obviously handy but I think some of their young kids will provide some good support throughout the year and they’ll be competitive. Hindsight will probably show this to be a very positive move for the club into the future.

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    All I know is that RECCC is playing LPCC at Research Park for inaugural game at the new Pavilion. Personally haven’t been inside yet but they tell me it’s state of the art audio visual equipment with 6 TV screens, ability to have live feed of ground action with video replay, top line commercial...

    Money Shield 18/19

    Bit busy these days. Managing a young Racing car driver and working towards getting him to Europe next year and back towards his goal of F1, which at this stage looks promising. If it all works out, that’s where I’ll be as well:)

    Money Shield 18/19

    That year we had home Semi and home gf. The semi grossed 2.5 and the GF 5k and I’m pretty sure we had the knockout round at home as well. It’s a bit different this year playing at the College but we’ve always had good turnouts at a T20 at Research Park. Obviously we get a cricket club crowd but...

    Money Shield 18/19

    I think a lot of you folk are missing some important things re T20. Granted it’s not perfect, but consider this. If you promote it properly within your club, get the necessary buy in from players and use it as a way to generate income, it is extremely worthwhile. When we made the final against...

    Money Shield 18/19

    Not that I think T20 has anything to do with Saturday cricket. But it helps when a couple of young blokes start gaining confidence ie, 18yo Ben Davies 48 and 18yo Jack Fitzpatrick 4 wkts and start performing as their talent says they can. And then of course there’s Shannon Malone helping them...

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    I think the association have some thinking to do with this 50 percent rule. Apparently we have a rule that’s says if your main ground is unfit for play if you have another ground that is, you must move your Shield side to that ground in order to play a game. Don’t have an issue with that, except...

    Big pat on the back to Nick Carlton and Luke Anderson for their inspiration in coming up with the idea for the Pat Cronin Walk to the Valley 3 years ago. Great contribution to a great cause, great family from 2 very good men. About 200k raised over the journey. Looking fwd to a bigger and better...

    Credit where credit is due, great chase and result for Eltham getting the Chocs. Bar GT, the batting fired when it was needed most and should give great confidence moving fwd, regardless of the perceived bowling weakness.

    Money Shield 18/19

    Think you’ll find the drop out rate will decrease as the growth continues and the pathways keep improving. This is already occurring. Anyway I shall also digress. The Eltham batting lineup will need to show up next week as I think they’ll have to most weeks, because that bowling isn’t going to...

    You might be interested to know mate that they are 50 percent of the population and a dominant reason for the growth of what were once completely male dominated sports. In football terms I think you’ll find they are well in front when it comes to new participants. Half of most committees I’m...
