Round 4 COR - Tom Galvin.jpg

Tom Galvin is well-deserving of the Nag's Head Clubperson of the Round following his efforts off-field over the past couple of weeks. Despite being selected in 4th Grade for Round 4, Tom generously spent both Friday's at Camperdown Oval assisting with the covers to ensure the 3rd Grade team were able to play. His contribution and commitment to the Club is greatly appreciated. 

Special mention also goes to the whole 3rd Grade squad for their assistance with the logistics after a tough round at Camperdown Oval.

Congratulations to Tom who receives a $100 Nag's Head voucher, and as a special thank you, "admin" has arranged a bonus $100 Nag's Head voucher for the entire 3rd Grade team.

Round 3 Clubperson - Liam Whitaker.jpg

The friendly, polite and likeable Liam Whitaker is the Nags Head Clubman of the Round for Round 3. Liam is always the first to ask how he can help out: whether at training, around the grounds or off-the-field. Liam has assisted with the small things that few notice, such as packing up training kit, acting as a guide for new players, scoring, drinks preparation, moving equipment/clothing and just generally making the Club a friendlier place.

Thank you for all your efforts Liam, and congratulations on claiming the $100 Nags Head Clubman of the Round voucher.

Round 2 POR - Tim Ley.jpg

In a round dominated by batsmen, Tim Ley's contribution with the ball in First Grade's win against Blacktown was a standout performance during Round 2 of the NSW McDonald's Premier Cricket competition, taking an impressive 6 wickets for 18 runs. Tim first played for Sydney Uni in 2004 and has since totalled an outstanding 468 wickets, placing him seventh on the list of all time wicket takers, closely shadowing teammate Tom Kierath on 474.

Tim's bowling abilities have greatly contributed to the team's success as a standout quick in the competition. His commitment to the team and determination will continue to lead the bowling attack throughout the rest of the 2017-18 season. 

Notable mentions include Ben Trevor-Jones' maiden First Grade century (144), Damien Mortimer's unbeaten century, James Larkin's 96, Lewis Bedford's 93, Lewis McMahon's 5-61, Shehan Canagasingham's 5-28, and Billy Barge's 4-16.

 

Round 2 COR - Josh Toyer.jpg

Josh Toyer's commitment to Sydney Uni Cricket Club throughout the 2017-18 season has been second to none. As a well-loved club member and teammate, Josh generously volunteered to score for Third Grade whilst out with an injury during the opening round and has also assisted with multiple operational tasks off the field.

Josh has also volunteered as the Club's delegate to the Sydney Cricket Association for 2017-18, which gives him a role on Sydney Uni Cricket Club's board, demonstrating his ongoing passion and commitment to the sport.

Surjits Indian 2015.jpg

Liam Robertson’s hitting abilities were the highlight of the First Grade match during round 1 of the McDonald’s NSW Premier Cricket competition for 2017-18. Robbo belted 102 runs from 84 balls as he led the side to a total of 5-297 and a win for the defending premiers.

Liam debuted with Sydney Uni Cricket Club in 2006 and has now scored 4653 runs with an average of 27.05, with a highest score of 193. Liam is now within sight of becoming the 23rd Sydney Uni cricketer to score 5000 runs for the Club (though he will likely be the 24th with Ben Larkin only 10 runs from that mark).

Congratulations Liam on claiming the opening Surjit’s Player of the Round Award for 2017-18.
