Birthdays, birthdays, birthdays!
Yeah perhaps we're scrambling for things you may have missed with the cricket a few weeks away yet, but then again, birthdays for some of the Club faithful are always pretty important to recognise.
Our Director of Cricket, Cam Borgas, celebrated his 35th birthday on Saturday with his family and friends on hand. We hope Cam enjoyed his first birthday at the Club and hope there are a few more to come.
Sydney Uni CC 'Living Legend' and former SUSF High Performance Manager, Matt Phelps, celebrated his 46th birthday on Saturday also. Matt is now the General Manager - Commercial, Competitions & Operations at Cricket ACT, and his son Tom has been named in the Sydney Uni Green Shield squad for 2018-19 after impressive trials in July & August.
Fan favourite, Alasdair Grant, celebrated a milestone when he ticked the strike over on his 30th birthday on Sunday. AJ has decided to step back from his role as Fourth Grade captain this season to focus on his aspirations of enjoying more 3rd Grade success this season.
You haven't missed it yet, but we thought it also important to remind everyone that the other fan favourite, Ash Cowan, continues an enjoyable start to his innings with his 35th birthday on Wednesday.
We wish them all a happy birthday!!!
Larkin finding form at the right time
You may have missed it... it was out at Joe McAleer Oval in Blacktown... but Sydney Uni's run-scoring machine is ticking into gear just at the right time as he looks to secure a berth in the NSW squad for the JLT Cup opener on the 18th against WA at the WACA. Nicko hit a composed 69 runs from 67 balls in the middle order in the 3rd NSW Blues internal trial match last week. Check out what he had to say about it here.
Nick is currently in Brisbane with the Blues squad for some pre-season practice matches against the Qld Bulls and National Performance Squad, the first match tomorrow against the Bulls.
We're all right behind you Nick, and whilst it will be a large hole to fill, we hope to see little of you on the field for Sydney Uni in 2018-19 as you cement a place in the Blues line-up for the season.
Did we miss it???
We see a fair bit, but we don't see everything... if you think we've missed something that should be included in our ICYMI Monday blogs, please send it through to firstname.lastname@example.org
