The Manly Warringah Junior Cricket Club have capped off another fantastic representative season with two premierships.

In reply, the Manly bowling was too strong, with James Olde (3/14) and Archie Rochford (3/24) ripping through the Parramatta lineup to bowl out the side for 112 in the 37th Over. Congratulations on an amazing season!
In the Boys Under 12’s Grand Final, Manly beat North Shore convincingly in their 40 over a side match. Bowling first, Manly were set an imposing total of 169 for victory. Claude Redmond the pick of the bowlers with 3/16 off his 6 overs.
In reply, the boys chased down the large total in the 34th over, for the loss of 7 wickets. Congratulations to everyone involved in the victory, and for their amazing season.
The Grand Final victories capped off an amazing season for the representative teams, with the 13’s Girls also making the Grand Final, and the 16s Boys and Boys 13 Division 1 also making the Semi Finals.
