Junior Team of the Week (Round 1)
Posted by Daine Vernon on Monday, 17 Oct 2016 at 11pm
Just like the senior team of the week we will be rewarding our junior stars with their very own team of the week.
Each week we will look through the stats and get feedback from the coaches as to who played their role and who were the outstanding performers of the week.

Congratulations to the Round 1 team nominations.

Mitch Woodcock (wk): The U/16 keeper batsman had a great start to the season opening the batting and hitting his career highest score of 32.
Keen to make up for last season when he missed the finals through injury Mitch is a player on the improve.

Ben Marget: Making a name for himself as a hard hitting batsman Ben took full advantage of the bad balls and retired with a quickfire 
25. He will need to continue this sort of form if the U/14's are to go one step better this season!

Ty Pugliese: The Upwey bowlers were no match Ty as he helped himself to a better than run a ball 45 to guide his side over the line
in an emphatic win for the 16's.

Josh Shelly: In his first game of competitive cricket Josh more than held his own in the U/12's match against FTG griffens. Got off to
a steady start before playing some nice shots and retiring not out with the team's top score of 10.

Ishan Goonetilleke: Did as he pleased in the U/14's middle order with a fantastic 28 retired to be the team's top scorer in the comfortable
win over Upper Gully maroons.

Luke Plumridge (c): The somewhat cheeky all-rounder had a day out in the strong U/14's with the left hander hitting an impressive 26 retired 
backing up from his very tidy figures of 1/3 off 4 overs.

Tom Barlow: Against a strong opposition Tom took the only wicket for just one run in his U/12's match. He also opened the batting and compiled 
9 runs with a four included in a solid performance.

Maddie Weston: One of our star female cricketers Maddie was the pick of the bowlers this week taking a career best 2/3 off 2 overs showing some 
great control with the ball.

Ben O'Brien: The ever reliable BOB did his job in the U/16's first innings steaming in to take 2/13 and stifle the opposition batsmen. After improving 
significantly last season he will be looking to step it up again in 2016/17.

Andrew Trifilio: U/13's player Andrew had a very serviceable game with both bat and ball. Took one of the 2 wickets for his team and retired not out 
with a steady 8*.

Ashleigh Hall: In her first match for Knox Gardens Ashleigh impressed with her solid medium pace bowling hurrying up the opposition batsmen. Took 
a wicket in her first over and is one player that will improve with every game.

12th Man
Jay Wagner: Jay opened the batting in the 16's and helped get the side off to a good start chasing a tricky total. With his trademark cut shot shots 
accumulated 20 runs in a great opening partnership.
