NEXT ISSUE MUST BE SUBMITTED TO

THE EDITORIAL COMMITTEE BY THE

January 12th

At the halfway mark of the season,!

would like to make the following comments

on the matter of team selections.

It is good to see that teams have

rarely had to be altered after dropouts

on the Friday or later and just

before the match. This has taken a

load of work off Bill Northam and myself.

Some players have dropped out

after team selections on Tuesday night

however. Please ensure that you inform

the captain or myself at least on the'

Saturday before, if you are unavailable.

The captains and vice-captains have

given me tremendous support and help

in selecting teams. The committee has

tried to maintain stability in all teams

and this is working comparatively

well.

I am finding that all players cannot

be pleased all the time. Players

have had to be rotated in some teams

in order to grave, everyone a game. Decisions

on who to rotate Are hard but

are normally based on poor form, practice

attendance or attitude.

If any member is not satisfied with

the selection please contact me at

once and we can talk the matter over.I

believe that the Club must come first

in all matters.

It is noted that only about 75% zof

the registered players are turning up

regularly for practice. Let us improve

on this aspect of our cricket after

the Christmas holidays. This could be

a major factor in selections as the

Club has about 100 financial members

available for filling 77 positions.

Good luck to all teams and let's

ensure that we WIN at least one premiership

this season.

0 TOURIST TAYLOR

Jim Taylor, a long standing member of this club and a student of Stirling

College, is one of three ACT schoolboys in the Australian Schoolboys' Rugby

Union Team on a seven week tour of Europe.

During their 13 match tour they will play Internationals in Europe against

Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Holland.

• CENTURY MAKERS.

David Pennell and Mathew Collins have joined the distinguished band of members

who have made centuries for the Club.

% ACT REPRESENTATIVES.

Jonathan Abrahams has been selected in the ACT Under 16 side while Tim

Morris is in the ACT Under 19 team. Congratulations to them both.

0 GOT HIM

WCCC Thirds looking for an outright win in their match against Ginninderra

brought on Hall (Wal not Wes).Soon he had the batsmen in all sorts of trouble

and trapped one plumb lbw. In great joy Wal performed one of those war dances

known only to the warring types. It is understood that this dance was so

breath taking and colourful that the umpire did not sight the ball or the batsman's

leg. The Ump's decision? A great piece of dancing, Not Out.

• THANKS TO DON AND PAT

From the very begining of the Weston Creek Sports Centre Don Brooker and

Pat Flynn have looked after the Cricket Club's interests as the delegates to

the management committee. Due to other commitments they have both decided not

to stand for nominations this year, and the Club's thanks go to them for a

difficult job well done.

The Club has nominated Ron Smith and Bill Northam to these positions.

• OH! WHY

WCCC captain Irvine has advised. 'Cover Point' that like "Hoggy", Irvine is

also a well bred cricketer - he shares a birthday with the incomparable

Ranjitsinhji, September 10th. However, Club wit C.Harris . is understood to

have remarked that as Ranjitsinhji was born in 1872, perhaps it is old age

that is affecting GI's bowling! Chris has modestly revealed• that he aind

Dirk Wellham share a birthday, March 3rd (in Dirk's case 1959).

9 CONGRATULATIONS

Congratulations to Bruce and Barbara Coe on the arrival of their son No.2.

James Alan.

COLIN IMMS and WENDY ... Congratulations on your engagement. It seems that

before the announcement Colin made a dashing 24 and the week later a laboured

4 runs.

• The Australasian Under 19 Cricket Championships will be held in Canberra

for the first time between 6th and 13th January 1982. Two games will be played

at Stirling Oval.

* Thursday 7th January.. Queensland v South Australia.

* Sunday 10th January.. South Australia v Western Australia.


This was the long awaited game. The one-man organisation committee left nothing

to be desired. However, until the morning of the game no one knew who was

playing whom .

It was "Us" against "Them". "Them" - well, they consisted of bowlers (and

they were no batsmen said our captain). Footballers who think all balls are eggshaped

and 'de men wit de money'(the sponsors) and their friends who were making

up the numbers. No we did not like that bit about making up the numbers.

"US" well, we were all experienced cricketers. We looked like cricketers,

our whites, caps, boots thighpads and all. We are cricketers, we are.

It was thought unwise, to play against "Them" - after all Geoff Smith (he was

seen kneeling down a few times during the game and was overheard saying something

about Ptaise Allah- so you now know what PA stands for) is paying to keep our

Club going. So it we.s decided that the maich should be between "Us" and "The

Wildcats'.

'Wacka', bless him, the only member of the organising committee, had

a pitch out of what was left over from the Saturday's game.

in

cooked

Rules were agreed upon. If kicking and sledging were good enough for Test

Cricketers they good enough for us but definitely no underarm bowling. (A few of

,"Them"bowlers were seen practicing on the previous day).

Our captain, from his cheek bone (cracked last year and protected by helmet )

to his toe, every inch a captain, without tossing invited "Them" to bat first.

They would not have a bar of that. This was an insult.What sort of cricket is

this? They, thought quite rightly, that they were our equals. They might have

been in Cowboy hats and prisoners'stripes, but they wanted to toss. Nuttall then

won the toss and put them in.

After setting a field for Dennis Lillee yreadjusting it again and again, "They

are not used to playing this game, so go easy" said the captain.

Williams and Broomby opened the innings.lt was the first time coloured clothing

was allowed on the field at Stirling. Williams in blue gray and Broomby in

blue prison stripes. Soon the cockyness disappeared. Nuttall got serious. He had

good cause to be so. When Broomby was LBW to Flynn (good umpiring) for a polish-


5

ed 35 the score was 2/66. Geoff Smith looking every inch a cricketer arrived at

the crease and became very emotional on seeing the PA logo on mid-pitch ("For

the benifit of the TV cameras'we said). He made 24, Buchanan 36 and Drew looked

like making a ton but was stumped trying to hit the ball off the 14 year old

Geoff Casburn into the Stirling College. The Writer,although he did not take any

wickets in his 5 overs, was responsible for two runouts.One a smdoth pi6k-up and

return and the other,(the toe still hurts) a smart deflection off a straight drive

that broke the wicket while the non-striker was backing-up.

At lunch with their 40 overs up, the Wildcats were 180 for 8. Now I cannot

remember even our first grade making that sort of a total in a day. We were getting

worried. Nuttall called a conference. Decided to . open with Patrick Flynn

and Ron Farrawell. In spite of several 'lives' the opening pair put on 56 before

Farrawell retired. Waldron then appeared wearing a selection of protective

gear. He 'made a quick 20 and was out to a brilliant catch by Broomby.

Now the joke was well and truly turning sour. At 5 for 115 your scribe replaced

Nuttall who had been'giving the other side catching practice • .Within minutes

of arriving at the crease Samara ran out Clayton- one of those Chris Harris type

of calls "Yes—no—yes—yes—" disasters• However Simmons (Keith) and Samara-

Wickrama had great plans of scoring 6 runs an over to win,The demon bowler Broomby

had other plans and "Us" were all out for 167.

It was at the conclusion of the game that we found out the real reason for

our defeat. Jim had suffered serious shoulder injury while throwing a moth out

of his kitchen window.

It mattered not who won or lost. We all had a great day and Wacka should take

a bow.

HOWZAT ?

by QUICK SINGLE

Ql. In a recent WCCC Thirds match, the Tuggeranong Doctor blew across Mawson

Oval in gusts up to 25 knots. Tiring of retrieving the bails, one of the fielding

side secured them on the stumps at one end using chewing gum. At the

other end the bails were removed.

Is this in order?

02. At the end without bails a batsman was stranded out of his crease,the 'Keeper

took the ball fairly and with ball in gloves made contact with the stumps

but failed to knock any from the ground. On appeal, is the batsman out

'Stumped'?

03. Earlier in the same match the bowler delivered a ball which the batsman crashed

through the covers for four, but before the batsman played his stroke

a bail was blown off the striker's wicket. What is the decision?

Q4. Brought on to exploit the blustery conditions, Wacka unleashed his lethal

delivery that goes on with the arm. The ball swung late, was caught by a

gust of wind and passed the batsman out of his reach.JB fielded the delivery

in the gully and noted the non-striker had backed up from his crease. JB's

shy at the non-striker's stumps missed by a yard and from the resultant misfield

the batsmen ran two overthrows. What runs, if any, should be recorded?

ACTCA - FIRST GRADE

ROUND 4 V GINNINDERRA

Ginninderra batted first and got off to a good start. Our bowlers after being

loose early, bowled a good line and were unlucky not to dismiss the opposition.

Best of the bowlers was• Greg Harper who took 2 wickets. He was well supported

by all the bowlers. A point of note was the continued inprovement in our fielding.

Ginninderra declared at 8 for 180.

After an early setback Roger Lonie batted aggressively to score 34. This was

followed by Wayne Campbell's 33. They both received good support from Greg Harper

with 28. However after being 3 for 103, we collapsed to be all out for 146.

Our batting once again let us down.

ACTCA SECOND GRADE

No reports have been received from this grade

ACTCA - THIRD GRADE

ROUND 3 V EASTS

After losing the toss Weston Creek batted first on a hard wicket at Forestry

Oval. Most batsmen got starts but only a restrained Laurie O'Mara (38 in two hours)

and an in-form Wal Hall (30) continued on to reasonable scores. Colin Imms

contributed a powerhouse 19 as WCCC finally totalled 153.

Easts then batted and at 5 for 89 the game was evenly poised. Unfortunately

for Weston Creek the latter order Easts batsmen were more talented than their

earlier colleagues and the Weston Creek score was passed with the loss of one

more wicket. Peter Robins and Colin Imms with two wickets each were the best of

the Weston Creek bowlers.

ROUND 4 V GINNINDERRA

Ginninderra won the toss and had no hesitation in sending WCCC in on a very

soft Kaleen wicket. (The sprinkler system had gone haywire during the week). We

were quickly in trouble and only a determined last wicket partnership pushed

the score to a very ordinary 80. The only batsman to show out against the very

tight Ginninderra bowling was Colin Imms with 24.

At 4 for 51 when stumps were drawn Ginninderra looked to have victory well

within its grasp. The next day started and the score was pushed to 5 for 65 but

four wickets fell for 1 run and the last wicket fell at 77 giving Weston Creek a

remarkable 3 run victory. All the bowlers performed well with Geoff Ferguson and

Rob Chapman sealing the victory with tight performances.

Batting a second time WCCC declared at 8 for 108 giving Ginninderra 112 to

make in about 25 overs, to secure an outright win. Peter Mosley (27) and Rob Chapman

(22) batted well in the second innings.

Ginninderra was never in the hunt in its second dig and at stumps was a shaky

8 for 53 with Geoff Ferguson (4 for 14) and Rob Chapman (3 for 19) again performing

well.

ACTCA -FOURTH GRADE

No reports have been received from this grade.

CCSCA _ 1 S T GRADE

After once again losing the toss and being told by the team that I can remain

as captain but provided I did not toss again, we batted first and all our main

batsmen got a start but could not carry on with it. He were eventually all out

for 126 at 4.30. When City went into bat Ron Foster and Tom Porter proceeded to

tear the opposition apart with the help of Ray Stone. At stumps they were 4/14

off 17 overs.

At the start of the second day everyone was keen to go for an outright. City

were all out for 24. Ron Foster 4 for 6 off 18 overs. Tom Porter 2 for 10 and

Lionel Laverty 1 for 0. We batted again and scored 0 for 46. Ratford 26* and

Lille y 18*.

City weny in again and Ratford started the chase for outright points. We

missed four catches in the second innings but still managed to route City for

35. Greg Ratford 3/10, Foster 2/5 Porter 1/5 Laverty 1/7 and Palitha Kohona 1/7.

The pleasing feature of this game was Ray Stone - Keeping took 7 catches and

conceded minimal byes. Our ground fielding and catching were in general a vast

improvement on our first two outings. Our batting also showed signs of improvement

and our bowlers mainly bowled a line at off stump which is where the field

is set ~ Tom Porter

CCSCA -2 N D GRADE

ROUND 3 v CITY

An outstanding individual effort by Mathew Collins was the highlight of out

rather facile victory over a lacklustre ANU team, our first game on our picturesque

ground at rentote Wanniassa. The visitors elected to bat and they struggled

to accumulate 123 runs off 47 overs. The chief wicket takers were Mathew

Collins (5 for 28 off 18 overs) and Keith Parker (3 for 18 off 10 overs)

By stumps on the first day we had reached 1 for 43,and we quickly passed the

ANU total on the second day with only three wickets down. We batted on to reach

5 for 219 before closing, with Mathew Collins scoring a free flowing unbeaten

century. Other good scores came from Peter Poulos (38) Alex Simmons (31) and Peter

Banks (25)

With ANU having only 8 players we had high hopes of an outright, but they

managed to hold out to be 6 for 71 at stumps. We discovered a new striking force,

with Barney Devlin taking 4 for 17 off 7 overs, but even his mesmerising

donkey drop failed to dislodge ANU's unorthodox last pair.

ROUND 4 V ANU CC

This was our first one day game of the season and resulted in a good win over

ANU CC in a very high scoring game. Sent in to bat we scored 6 for 200 off 40

overs in a rain interrupted session. Top scorer again was Mathew Collins who raced

to 62 in very quick time. He was well supported by Peter Poulos (24) in a

105 run partnership. Chris Body, playing on one leg, hit an impressive 46, with

Alex Simmons (23*) and Paul Power (13) making useful quick rums.

The ANU reply looked like crumbling when they were only 7 for 87 off 25 overs

but a spirited wag of the tail saw them reach 8 for 173 when their innings came

to an end.'Most successful of our bowlers were Steve Hicks, 3 for 35 and Mathew

Collins 2 for 41.

Barney Devlin


ROUND 5 V TEACHERS C C

After having comfortably beaten ANU in a one-day game in round four we anticipated

a close but successful game against Teachers. Unfortunately this was not

to be and we were comprehensively beaten. Teachers 7 for 191 from 48 overs, WCCC

all out for 109 from 40 overs. Best performances for WCCC were Matt Collins and

Peter Poulos with the bat - 34 and 20 respectively :and Ian Gammage 4 for 38 with

the ball. Requiring a run rate of exactly four runs per over for victory we failed

to get off to the bright start required, being 1 for 38 after the first 18

overs, a run rate of only two an over, The middle order tried to increase the

tempo but failed - the bottom six batsmen managing only 30 runs between them.

Paul Power

CCSCA - 3 R D GRADE

ROUND 5 V DARAMALAN

On winning the toss we elected to bat and after a good start by Bill Northam

and Ron Farrawell, David Rolf consolidated our innings by scoring a brilliant 84

in 76 minutes. Sundries second top scored with 28 and we were 9/162 after our

time. Daramalan after being 2/30 had us worried at 2/96. However,'Cowboy' (Kel

O'Rourke) chimed in with two quick wickets and Daramalan collapsed under the pressure

to finish up at 9/151. Of the bowlers. Cowboy took 4/35 and Dave Twiss 10

very tidy overs for 7 maidens and a wicket.

ROUND 6 V WORKERS

The match has been the highlight of the season so far. Weston Creek won the

toss and batted first. Once again Bill Northamf 24 ) and Ron Farrawell (25) gave

the home team a great start (47). However, from then on we regularly lost wickets

•although Rolf chipped in with a 22. We finished with 133. Workers, who were unbeaten,

quickly took up the challange and were looking good at 1/65. However our

persistence paid off when David Twiss took 5/28 and Bruce Russell 3/16. Congratulations"

to all the boys for their fine fielding efforts. David Twiss also received

a man-of-the-match award.

ROUND 7 v EASTS

** It was just not cricket Scores;WCCC 109 Easts 114.

**

ROUND 8 V ANUCC

On winning the toss we batted first and were soon struggling at 6 for 73.However,

David Rolfe (53) combined with Phil McPherson in a good 36 run partnership

We then lost a couple of quick wickets and were reeling at 9/129. Intelligent

batting by Darren Hossack (17*) and Jamie Clayton (21) saw our total reach 164.

This partnership meant the difference between winning and losing - ANU then

batted and began with a 55 run opening partnership. Then the secret weapon(Bill

Northam) came in and bowled both openers. David Twiss chipped in with three wickets

and Bill Northan took another 3 to finish off with the amazing figures of

7-3-13-5. ANU finished with 143 runs and Bill Northam did not win the pewter.

Mention should be made of the fielding of David Rolfe and Darren Hossack.

Once upon a time there were 11 blokes dressed in whites who decided they would

attempt to play a game of cricket at Stirling. They decided to adopt as 'there'

team identification the shamrock rovers. Their game was against Willie's Wobblies

The shamrocks won the toss & invited the wobblies to bat. A

at the end of the day the wobblies had been dismissed for 126 s the shamrocks

were 2-5. Bowling stars were Tulby (or Tully or Tubby) with 3-30, muso 2-36,kago

2-11 S Two-pot screamer 2-11.

Canberra turned on its best weather on Friday & the rovers were forced to bat

on a dubious wicket & were dismissed for 71 with scotty getting 16 s Tw6-pot

screamer 17 not out. They went back had a slog and declared at 2-36, leaving us

a target of 92 of 19 overs of which we scored 5/54 with two-pot screamer getting

18 & King Shamrock 23 n.o.

This was an improved effort by the Shamrocks & we are looking for another improved

performance against touring (Ginno)derralicks.

JUNIOR CRICKET COACHING WEEK

DIRECTED BY BRIAN BOOTH

DIRECTED BY DKlrtll BUUItl *

FORMER AUSTRALIAN TEST CRICKETER *

*

*

18 - 22 JANUARY 1982

Weston Creek Cricket Club in conjunction with P.A.Credit Union Co-operative

Ltd. is again holding a Junior Cricket Coaching Week. Brian Booth, the former

Australian Test Cricketer who is no stranger to this Club will direct the Week

between Monday the 18th and Friday the 22nd of January 1982. He will be

assisted by Steve Bernard, the former NSW fast bowler, Tom Purcell from Mike

Pawley Cricket School in Sydney, Wayne Campbell and Greg Irvine.

A permanent member of Australian teams between 1961 and 1966 , Brian toured

England twice (in 1964 as Vice Captain), India, Pakistan and the West Indies,

and played in series at home against England, South Africa and Pakistan. He

was in this period probably Australia's most consistent scorer,reaching 1000

runs after eleven Tests. He made 112 and 103 against England in 1962/3 and

169 and 102* against South Africa in 1963/64. Moreover he made his runs when

they were most needed. He captained Australia in two Tests while Bob Simpson

was away ill.

In his first class career (1954-68) he made 11,280 runs at 44.90 including

26 centuries. In Test Matches (29) he made 1773 runs at 42.21 including five

centuries, 3 wickets at 48.66 each and 17 catches.

" N E R V O U S N I N E T I E S "

In the 1901/02 series between England and Australia Clem Hill could be excused

for believing in the "Nervous Nineties". In three consecutive innings he

scored 99, 98 and 97, with the last two scores being in the same Test at Adelaide.

Hill also made an 87, a jinx score for Australians, in the fifth Test- of

that series.

" T A L L O R D E R "

In the first Test at Birmingham in 1902 Australia faced an England team which

contained eleven players who had all scored first class centuries. Ehgland

scored 376 and then bundled Australia out for 36, its lowest ever Test score.

Luckily the weather intervened and rescued Australia from certain defeat, at

2 for 46 in the second innings.

In March 1939 England and South Africa played what was to . be a "Timeless

Test". South Africa batted first and knocked up a respectable 530. England followed

up with 316, 214 behind. South Africa batted again to compile 481,giving

an overall lead of 695. Not to be overawed by the monumental task England

started the chase and at one stage was three for 611, but at 5 for 654, .with

victory in sight, the England players had to leave to catch their boat back to

England.

In all the match lasted for 10 days, and produced the highest first class

match aggregate of 1981 and the highest first-class fourth innings total of 5

for 654.

1. There is no provision in the Laws for the use of gum (or any other adhesive)

to keep the bails in position. However the captains may agree, with the approval

of the umpires, to dispence with the bails. (Law 8 Note (a) )

2. Having decided to dispense with the use of bails, whether the wicket is down

is then a matter for the umpires who may decide that the wicket may be held

to be down even though a stump is not stuck out of the ground as provided

for in Law 28. lc In the case of the WCCC stumping it would be reasonable

to expect that the batsman be deemed 'out'.

3. The ball shall not count as one of the over, nor shall any runs be scored

from it (Law 23. 2e ).The umpire shall suspend play by calling "dead

ball" immediately the bail fell.

4. Two "wides". The ball does not become'dead" on the call of "Wide ball". All

runs that are run from a wide ball shall be scored 'wide balls' or if no runs

be made, one run shall be scored. (Law 25).


The two contestants have continued their longest bout in history with

some fine bowling and good verbal slanging.

At the end of Round 4 CHRIS HARRIS thinks he had the amazing figures

of 5 wickets for 46 runs off 40 overs. (One of the referees expects

this contestant to collapse with shock at being given so many overs J

Greg Irvine has captured 8 wickets for 82 runs off 47 overs in all

honesty and leads the competition at this stage.

The contestants should note that the rules state that "the minds of

players shall be above their belts at all stages of the contest? Points

will be deducted for any evidence of breaches of this rule.
