Another clean sweep sends Waratahs further ahead – Monday News – Rd 10 vs Campbelltown

Round 10 of the SCA competition saw another clean sweep to the TravelSIM Manly Warringah Waratahs against Campbelltown-Camden. It was a dominant display for the Manly boys in what is always a tough round.

1st grade had a solid 6 wicket win despite a few hiccups along the way. Chasing 148 we were 3 for 34 and 4 for 61 at various stages but a brilliant 84* from Ahillen Beadle brought the boys home. 2nd grade also had a few nervous moment with the bat in chasing 140 after losing 2 early ones, but eventually got home fairly comfortably with 4 wickets to spare.

3rd grade had a bang-on day with a huge bonus point victory over the ghosts. All batsmen made contributions in the 9 for 286 scoreline, will all bowlers also contributed with the opposition getting rolled for 99.

The match of the day was in 4th grade as the Tahs, chasing 225 for victory, got themselves into alot of trouble early until Sam Hole hit his debut grade hundred to get the boys home with 3 wickets and 5 balls to spare.

Finally, 5th grade had a bonus point victory after pilling on 255, Joel Mason with a great hundred, and going through Campbelltown for 127, again the wickets being shared.

So at the end of Round 10, exactly 2/3’s through the season, the TravelSIM Waratahs sit 190 points clear in the Club Championship from Sydney University in 2nd place and 2014 from Penrith in 3rd place. We have a big few rounds coming up though with Bankstown, Sutherland and Penrith, so there is some tough cricket ahead and still a long way to go until the end of the regular season.

Go Manly! 

4 Pines P4 Pines Logolayer of the Week – Sam Hole

Similar to Adam Gummer last week, it’s fair to say that Sam Hole has not been in great form so far this season. Some encouragement from Club Coach Shawn Bradstreet during the week that he should walk out to bat “like you own the place” obviously worked as Sam not only hit his first grade ton for Manly, but more importantly lead his 4th grade side to a big win.

Sam was in great touch but was also very composed in heading the run chase. The Waratahs were 3 for 15 off 8 overs at one stage so Sam not only had to keep his wicket intact but also keep the board ticking over. His unbeaten 118 was without doubt the innings of the weekend, and this Sam has won this weeks 4 Pines Brewery Player of the Week award.

1st Grade – Manly 4/150 (A. Beadle 84*) def. Campbelltown-Camden 148 (N. McLachlan 4/33, N. Bills 3/40, M. Edwards 2/26)

1st grade had a convincing win in the end against the unpredictable Campbelltown side on Saturday. Containing quality cricketers in the Coyte brothers, as well as the leading run-maker in Sydney Grade Cricket this season in Ryan Gibson, they were always going to be tough opposition.

Winning the toss and batting at Manly Oval, the Ghosts put on 46 for the first wicket until Mickey Edwards removed Clarke. With Gibson coming in at number 3, it was important that we continued making in-roads and that is exactly what happened. Campbelltown lost 10 for 102 as Nick McLachlan, Nic Bills and Mickey Edwards all impressed with the ball. James Munting finished off the innings with a clean bowled in the 48th over.

The Tahs batting started well with Rawlings and Edgell putting on 22 for the first wicket, however the removal of Edgell saw Crosthwaite gone first ball. With Rawlings out long after, we were in a tight situation at 3 for 34. Beadle and Merchant steadied the ship until Merchant left with the score on 64.

From this point it was the Ahillen Beadle show. We supported by Jay Lenton (21 off 72 balls) on a dying pitch, AB played probably his best innings of the season to finish on 84 not out off 132 balls. We passed the Campbelltown score in the 45th over.

So we continue our undefeated march into the top of the table clash with Bankstown next weekend. We have also secured ourselves a home Quarter Finals birth in the one day competition against Sutherland which should be a cracker of a day at Manly Oval

2nd Grade – Manly 6/141 (R. Hamman 41, J. Walter 25) def. Campbelltown-Camden 140 (M. Pugh 4/34, D. Marshall 2/10, T. Beatty 2/23, M. Visser 2/27)

Second grade had yet another petrol burning away game when they came up against the Campbelltown Ghosts. Both teams were placed 7th on the ladder so the match was deceptively important leading into finals time.

The ghosts won the toss and elected to bat. This turned out to be a good toss to lose for the waratahs as there was a little bit more in the pitch than expected. Before they knew it, the ghosts had lost three quick wickets to be struggling at 3/50 courtesy of Michael Visser’s efforts with the ball. A minor partnership then built as Mitch Pugh and Luke Diserens came into the attack. Mitch bowled an outstanding spell where he used the conditions perfectly to snare 4 wickets over the course of his ten overs. Luke played a good support role constantly asking questions of the batsmen but was unlucky to finish with no poles to his name. The ghosts were then in big trouble, reeling at 7/100 and this brought Dylan Marshall to the bowling crease. Dylan continued his good form for the season taking a tidy 2/10 off 6. Ghosts all out for 140. Special shout out to Sam Webber for taking two one-handed blinders in the innings.

The chase did not start all that positively for the waratahs with Justin Cox and Jack Ritchie both dismissed early. Rowan Hamman and Mitch Pugh then put a partnership together which set a strong foundation for the waratahs. Unfortunately Ro was triggered for a well compiled 42. Pughy started knocking it around with Jarrod Walter at the other end until Pughy holed out to mid off. The tension in the chase started to build at this Campbelltown put together a number of tight overs and their fielding was high quality making scoring difficult. When Jarrod and Ryan were dismissed, the game hung in the balance with 40 required off the last 10 overs. In came Sammy Webber who struck the ball well steering the Watarahs to a well-deserved 4 wicket victory finishing with 18*.

The Waratahs climb up, the ghosts slip down. 6 points to the good guys.

3rd Grade – Manly 9/286 (T. Kaye 55, E. Burgess 39, J Daly 29) def. Campbelltown-Camden 10/99 (L. Grant 3/14, B Falconer 3/20, T Kaye 2/15, W Evans 2/26)

For Manly, this was the equation facing us:
• MWDCC 2nd on 37 points (quot.: 1.7030) – 10 points behind leader’s Penrith on 47 points (quot.: 1.6734)
• Campbelltown-Camden 15th on 12 points (quot.: 0.9050)

4 Changes for MWDCC:
• In: Sam Gainsford, Ben Falconer
• Out: Lance Stewart, Ron Davis

Manly-Warringah won their 6th Toss for the Season and chose to bat at Home on LM Graham Reserve. Fisher’s Ghost’s Boys had only batted 2nd twice before this season and chasing a decent total might prove daunting to their high-performing top order.

Manly-Warringah Innings:
Gumms missed out this game after his sterling effort last game. One of the Ghost’s twins, Kain Flynn-Duncombe, opened their bowling and delivered 7 wides in his first 4 overs – sign of things to come!!!! Tommy Kaye and Matt Cole pumped along at well over 5 RPO and took the score to 14th Over before Mr Cole departed for 20 to be 2/76. Partnership: 68.

Jordan Daly joined Tommy Kaye and continued aggressive batting again over 5 RPO. Kain Flynn-Duncombe came back into the attack in the 29th over and all present witnessed cricket that we’ve never seen before:
– 16 balls in the over
– 22 Wides
– 27 off the Over

Suffice it to say, he didn’t come back on to bowl.

Tommy Kaye was dismissed for a well compiled 55 of 75 balls with the score at 3/152 in the 30th Over – probably was distracted by the avalanche of Wides. Partnership 76. Ed Burgess joined Jordan Daly and continued to 33rd Over with Daly dismissed for 29 to be 4/172. Sam Gainsford then joined Ed Burgess for a rather entertaining session:
– Partnership 54
– Burgess 39 off 29 balls (incl.2 fours, 2 sixes)
– Sam’s first four scoring shots: 4664
– Ed Burgess dismissed at 5/226 in 38th Over with Sam 21 NO

Good start, but a little concern over the lower middle order with possibility of not batting out our 50 Overs in the forefront of the Skipper’s instructions. Luke Grant, Sam Gainsford, Skipper Evans and Nick McCallum-Toomey were all dismissed to take the score to 9/256 in the 45th over.
– Gainsford finished up with 24 off 18

Aiden Bariol and Ben Falconer batted out the last 5 overs and took the score to 9/286 of 50 Overs – leaving Bariol on 22 NO and Falcs on 11 NO. So, Waratahs 3rd Grade setting a very competitive total. Top Scorer: A. Sundries: 67 (2 Byes, 6 Leg Byes, 59 Wides) – if you don’t mind Umpire!!!

Campbelltown-Camden Innings:
Going out to bat chasing 287, Ghosts needed their high performing top order of Michael Baker and Zachary Brown to seriously fire as they have all Season. Ghosts got off to a solid, if not slightly slower start, to be 49 in the 10th Over, with Zachary Brown and Jarred Lysaught sharing the batting spoils.

However, as per their form thus far this season in losing clusters of wickets, they proceeded to lose 5/20 to be 5/69 in the 17th Over with Falcs, Luke Grant and Skipper Evans sharing the spoils. A few more runs and then another cluster of wickets – 4/4 – to finish off the Campbelltown-Camden Innings at 99 after 26.2 Overs!!!

Magnificent and clinical performance from the Waratahs nailing home their ascendency in their lead up to the Finals Series.

Key Performances for Manly-Warringah:
• Ben Falconer: 3/20 off 8 Overs
• Luke Grant: 3/14 off 5 Overs
• Skipper Evans: 2/26 off 7 Overs
• Tommy Kaye: 2/15 off 3.2 Overs
• 3 catches behind for Aiden Bariol after his 5 fa last game

4th Grade – Manly 8/227 (S. Hole 118*) def. Campbelltown-Camden 6/226 (J. Carden 2/44, W. Outred 2/39)

We won the toss against Campbelltown out at Raby and elected to bowl. There batsmen started off shaky struggling to find the middle of the bat yet were 0-100 after the first 20.

Shortly after the drinks break the manly boys took two wickets in two overs to have Campbelltown 2-110. After good bowling and fielding throughout the innings Campbelltown ended their innings at 6-226 with 2 wickets to Jake Carden and Will Outred. 1 wicket to Sam Alexander and Jo Graham.

The Manly boys started off slowly with three wickets falling in the first ten overs with only 16 runs on the bored. The boys tried to keep the runs flowing but ended up 5 down needing another 130 runs off as many balls. Sam Hole was batting exceptionally well and combined with Zach Trewartha to push the score towards 150-160. Zach then got out with Manly still needing 6 and over. By this stage Sam had passed 50.

Needing 60 off the last ten overs the boys needed runs. Sam was at the crease with skipper Josh Petersen. Those two put on 20 odd before Josh fell. Sam Alexander then entered and scored a much needed 16 while Sam Hole was playing shots from the other end getting closer and closer to the winning score and his hundred. Sam was soon on 97 and brought up his hundred with a bomb over square leg!

Soon enough we got to the last over and the score was 8-223. Needing 4 runs off the last over to win. Ryan Bishop-Perret was on strike. The bowler bowled a short ball and Ryan dispatched it over square leg for four and the manly boys win!! Special mention to Sam Hole who finished with 118*! Absolutely brilliant knock!

Zach Trewartha

5th Grade – Manly 7/254 (J. Mason 100, J Boyer 47, J Graham 44) def. Campbelltown-Camden 129 (J. Wood 3/14, J. Graham 3/26, I. Vumbaca 2/25)

The Manly boys turned up to Mike Pawley to find a hard deck that looked dry and likely to deteriorate and play lower and lower throughout the day. Watto after making the umpire toss the coin won his first toss of the season and rightfully chose to bat. Joel Mason and Billy D’Arcy opened the innings with both playing with great intent.

After losing Billy, last week’s debutant Jack Edwards strolled to the crease looking relaxed and solid as always. Jack and Maso moved the score along quickly going at more than 6 an over. After Edwards (22) missed a straight one, James Boyer joined Maso intent on some time in the middle.

Maso continued to play his game, smashing the ball over the infield and given the hot conditions hit the boundaries with regularity and it was not long before he bought up his first ton of the season. Well Played Maso! We quickly lost Maso (100) before, James Boyer {47} and Jacob Graham (44) showcased some classing hitting getting us to our total of 254.

Joel Wood and Alex Bain opened up and both bowled well with great stump to stump lines taking two poles each. The pitch was beginning to crumble and the bounce inconsistent making it very tough for the Campbelltown batsman to score.

Jacob Graham used the low deck to his advantage bowling with some great shape in a nice spell and finished with a well-deserved 4fa. Isaiah Vumbaca then cleaned up the tail with two wickets with the Tahs finally dismissing the Ghosts for 127.

Great bonus point win for the Waratahs now lifting us to third place on the ladder.

Second Grade turned up to Waverley ready to take on Easts. After losing the toss, we were in the field and looking for early wickets among other things (Nick was searching for a park, while Dyl Marshall was on the look out for an RTA to renew his car rego). Mickey Visser (1-30) and Nick (2-32) opened up and set the trend for the day. Both of the boys built pressure and bowled consistent maidens. Before their first spells were done, each had a much deserved wicket. 2-40. The skipper then turned to Luke (2-36) and Pughy (1-15) who continued the good work. LG picked up the third wicket before Dylan (2-45) came on and bowled a terrific spell which saw him claim 2 crucial wickets. We had Easts up against the ropes at 5/75. Faz (1-26) and Gainsy (0-3) also bowled extremely well on either side of the tea break.


 It didn’t seem to matter who was bowling, the pressure was always on. East battled all day and never really managed to get their run rate over 1.5. I think the stat that sums up the day best is that we managed to bowl 32 maidens in the innings! A phenomenal effort on a flat deck. Although the 9th wicket managed to add just over 50 and put us slightly under pressure, it was all Manly on day 1. Easts 9/194 before an early declaration. Hats off to the bowling group for bouncing back after a disappointing game last week.


Jarrod and Gums then managed to survive a tough 9 over period without being troubled. The good guys are 0-10 and on the hunt for 6 points.
