What a sensational way to bring in the 2018-19 season!
A strong turnout of over 80 players, family, supporters and former players joined us at our new sponsor, The Toxteth Hotel Glebe, for our Season Launch, with many a cricket yarn told and new friendship formed.
Chairman, Adam Theobald, welcomed all new & returning players, thanked the coaches and volunteers who have prepared the players for Round 1, and introduced the many former players who had made the effort to join us.
Director of Cricket, Cam Borgas, wowed the crowd with his stand-up routine whilst interviewing the skippers before the all important team announcements. The teams to take on Manly-Warringah in Round 1 are:
Liam Robertson (c)
Nick Walker +
James Larkin (c)
Ash Cowan (c)
Hayden Storey +
Hugh Kermond +
Sanjiv Khalkho (c)
St Paul’s Oval
Andrew Wilkinson (c)
Greg Cade +
Metro Cup v Gordon

The highlight of the evening was the passionate address made by Club legend, former Chairman, James Rodgers. James spoke with his usual eloquence when describing what the Club, and his treasured baggy blue & gold Club Championship cap meant to him. The passion James has for the Club is infectious and if the 2018-19 crop has a quarter of that passion, Sydney Uni Cricket Club is in an amazing place.
An indication of the greatness of the Club was on show with former player, John Grimble, engaged well into the evening in a conversation about cricket and life in general with the excitable young leggie, Jack Lawson.
We thank all of our players for the hard work they’ve put in during the pre-season, family and friends for their support, and our former players for providing today’s generation of cricketers with an insight into why we love the game and the Club.
We also thank the Toxteth Hotel Glebe for a wonderful evening and highly recommend you try the schnitzel. Club members and supporters have access to food & beverage deals, please mention SUCC when you order. Players will receive their Toxteth membership card in the coming weeks.
Good luck students!!!
