U15 Glynn Williams Cup

Wide Bay V SCS Yellow

Unfortunately due to the outfield our game was abandoned. Disappointing start given all day we had beautiful sunshine and wind with the ground slowly improving. We waited until 1:20pm before ground staff and the umpires made the decision it’s too wet for play.

We are at Nambour tomorrow to take on the Bears

SCS Yellow vs Bears

Our day started at Nambour under cloudy skies and with the ground soaked we moved to Caulfield Chambers for a 40 over match. With more showers forecast in the afternoon the toss was crucial to win. Max getting his first shiny side of the coin we sent the Bears into batt knowing that bowling in the afternoon would be difficult.

Our opening bowlers bowled well. Will C snagging our first in the first over. Cooper H also picking up an opener in his second over. Max H, Will C and Cooper H all restricting the Bears to about three an over for the first ten and we had them 2/34. We had some missed opportunities before and after drinks. Then some brilliant tactics in the middle overs as the Bears began to consolidate, the ring fielders pushed back slightly and foxed a clever runout to break the game open and from that the tail was exposed. Eddie S with a sensational spell, bowling with absolute craftsmanship taking 3/18 off 5. The Bears running out of overs and posted 7/153

Our opening batters started well. Carefully seeing off the opening bowers with a similar run rate to the Bears batters. Then at the tenth over it started to rain and continued for 20mins. The ball quickly turning to soap and knowing the DL total as we played through the rain we stayed ahead at every over. Cooper H (16) departed in the 13th over and Kye W (17) in the 15th and impressively our run rate continued to climb thanks to Will M (48) with a super knock and Bryce M (41) constantly taking the game on and pressuring the fielders with hard running. Will C (13) and Bryce finished unbeaten batting with maturity and closing out the game in the thirty third over.

Great start to our carnival after getting washed out yesterday

U15s Glynn Williams team Red, after their 1st game yesterday being abandoned due to rain, the boys were looking forward to playing under lights with the pink ball today against Brisbane North Maroon.

With a delayed start and a pitch change we finally got on at 4pm.
Lost the toss and got sent in to bat on a soft wicket, it was tough batting, some good running between the wicket got us off to a good start.With wickets falling, Jack Southgate played very patiently, ending up 37 n/o. After the 30overs Team Red was 7/80.

With rain around, it was not looking good. We bowled 4overs when umpires called the game off due to the pitch being to wet and bad light.

For their 1st game in trying conditions, there is definitely some good signs for this team to come.

Team Red V MSW Red

Once again rain had us sitting around again lucky for us we had Bob McGee around to tell a few story’s about his cricket life, he had both teams sitting down and listening to every word.
At 9:30am we got the call that we had a dry ground at palmwoods.

Game started at 12:30pm 34 overs each. we lost the toss and bowled 1st and of course after the 2nd over it started to rain luckily we played through the only shower of the game. With a couple of drop catches and missed run outs, we finally got the 1st wicket (LBW) with the other 3 wickets being run outs. After 34overs MSW ended on 4/144. A Clegg 1/ 8 off 4 overs.

We thought a very get able total. We started off great with the openers having a 49 run partnership end with J Southgate 16 from 38 than, losing H Killick a short time later 29 from 43. We then had two new batters at the crease, they took a little bit too long to get going and runs dried up & when we tried to pick up the run rate we lost wickets. Unfortunately we went down after 34overs we were 6/130.
There were a few lessons learnt today both in the field and with the bat.

A big thanks to Palmwoods Cricket Club for letting us play on their field & preparing a field for us with short notice.

SCS Yellow vs Brisbane North Blue

Starting the day up at Dale Officer under drizzling conditions we made the call at lunch to move to Nambour No.2 for a T20 match.

Losing the toss we were sent into bat on a two paced wicket. With quick runs in mind our openers showed positive intent. Kye departed early to very sharp catch at gully. Cooper H (11) and Will M (15) increased the run rate. Will M departed just before drinks and Tate D followed quickly giving momentum to Brisbane North as we got to drinks. Jacob R (10) turned up the heat after drinks and started to take to the Brisbane bowling attack before he and Max H departed again in quick succession. Bryce M (12) and Will C (26) steadying the ship and continuing to increase the run rate into the final overs. Murphy F (8) chipping in as well taking us to a defendable total of 9/97 given the previous game on the same pitch.

We started with spin, Murphy F bowling a ripping over and Max H backing him up at the other end. The field was up energy high. Then we lost our way. The bowlers bowled both sides of the wicket the energy dropped and we got our first wicket in the sixth over. Then in the ninth we snagged a runout and then another in the tenth. Gifting to many sundries and wayward bowling Brisbane at drinks looking solid at 3/69.

Then it all changed and it was thrilling. We took Brisbane into the 20th over. Pace off and into the wicket all of a sudden Brisbane were looking shaky and we were taking wickets in key moments in the game. Master class bowling from Jacob R and Eddie S got us back in the game and the pressure was intense. The chat in the field, new batters nervously dotting up and taking higher risk shots. In the end Brisbane reached our total inside that last over. Keeping Brisbane to 2.9 runs an over in the last ten was exceptional after the wayward first ten overs.

SCS Red V Wide Bay

The day started off great no rain.
The toss we, lost again and put into bat.
Once again our openers got off to a great start, 0/100 off 25 overs than next over we lost J Southgate on 45 off 75 pushing a quick single,unlucky to have got run out.
A couple of overs later we lost our other opener H Killick on 37 again run out trying to move the game along.
After that the boys started to rebuild for a bash at the end. Which set a great end to the innings with N Pritchard 31 off 23 including two big 6s and A Gordon 20 off 25, for a total of 7/206 (50overs)
Our bowling innings start off good with a wicket in our 4th over and wickets falling regularly. Our bowlers kept the pressure on Wide Bays batters, Our bowlers bowling great line & length with the wickets getting shared around 6 of the 10 bowlers taking wickets.

A very special mention to Aiden Grodon taking his 1st ever 5 wicket hall very well bowled 5/15 off 6.5overs.
Scorchers 7/ 206 (50)
Wide Bay all out 131.(40.5)

We return to the same venue tomorrow to play off for 5th & 6th.


Winning the toss on a green soft and sticky wicket we sent Darling Downs into bat. Will C and Max H starting us off with the pitch spitting one end and staying low the other. It wasn’t until the 7th over we got our first with Darling Downs playing patiently and capitalising on any wayward bowling. After 10 overs Darling Downs 1/39. Then with some tight bowling from Bryce M and Cooper H we started to get into the grove. Cooper H picking up one in his third and then in his fourth a three wicket maiden breaking open the middle order and swinging the game massively in our favour. Both Cooper and Bryce bowling together today was extremely impressive. We had our chances in the field with wickets falling regularly until the final wicket wagging adding 30 runs setting a score of 120 off 35 overs

Darling Downs opening bowlers bowled great lengths up front with Cooper H (8) and Kye W (2) having to watch carefully and they did well. Will M (13) providing some resistance after loosing Kye early and Max H (13) together started to turn the strike. Wickets falling just before drinks and we were 3/47. Then in the next eight overs we found ourselves staring at the score book at 8/82.

Then the most amazing game unfolded right in front of us and I’ll never forget it. Cricket players that show grit, determination, patience, technique and exceptional concentration become elite. Today we watched Murphy F (16 off 40) and Jakob R (13 off 36), without giving Darling Downs a sniff, execute the most mature run chase all by themselves for their team on a difficult wicket.

Outstanding. Great win for us. Top 4. Proud of the group and their development.

Final Day Scorchers Team Red U15 V MSW Red.

It was a good day for cricket, unfortunately we lost a player to illness.
With a player down, the boys were upbeat and wanted to finish off with a win.
The toss didn’t go our way and, we were sent in to bowl.
The boys missed their line & length with their bowling but they still had regular wickets fall with MSW 3 / 50 after 10overs .

The next 20overs we restricted them to just 50 more runs. MSW ALL OUT for 106 (31)
Key bowlers

  • J Southgate with 3/11 off 5.2
  • S Lanksey with 3/7 off 4overs

Fielding today was unreal with the boys taking 7 catches.
Team really thought 106 was very under par.

Started the batting innings off the same as all week with our openers seeing off MSW’s opener bowlers.
Once H Killick got out the boys really struggled to get a partnership together, with run outs and hitting catches.

Lost all momentum with batting and MSW were all over the boys.
In the end we got the win 🏆 with B Tuza hitting gaps and the ball running to the boundary. Ending the game not out with 23 off 17 .

J Southgate with another top run score 35 off 90.
A special mention to our little hepler Nash Wilson running drinks for the boys and helping with throw downs and packing up the training gear.

A big congratulations to our player of the tournament for Team Red with 133runs and 4 wickets JACK SOUTHGATE.

Bob McGee (coach)

Would like to thank all the parents for their help with umpiring ,scoring and driving their boys to the many different venues & the location changes. The squad and families also wanted to thank the Manager, Luke Tuza for his efforts and support throughout the week.

All the best for the rest of the season team.

Thankyou again for a great week.

Final match of our carnival and we took on Brisbane North Blue again this time at Sel Bonnell at Cooroy. The pitch hard and flat we came up with plans for both sides of the coin. Asked to bowl we set about using our line and length and focusing on maintaining consistency. A direct hit runout got us going and at drinks we had them at 2/36. Brisbane then locked down for 11 overs as the batters settled in. Another 2 runouts and we held all our catches we turned the game around and at 40 overs Brisbane 8/181

The weather arrived and we were on and off for about an hour. Lawson C (9) showed pure class against the Brisbane quicks and Kye (7) looked great again with them both working together to get past the new ball. D/L came into play as we approached 15 overs and we were playing catch up. Bryce M (38), Murphy (8) and Jakob R (5) with wickets falling around them managed to hit one of our D/L targets at the 20th over. Then Brisbane squeezed us from one end with some very good spin bowing. Max H (12), Will M (12) and Cooper H (12) working together to get us closer each over but in the end Brisbane bowling us out for 120 to end our carnival.
