It was an overcast day on Day 2 at Brighton High. A good omen for South Road, who were bowling and defending 133 to win.
Opening the bowling from the Southern End was the star with the ball from the first two games, Poul Petersen. He bowled a vicious spell to begin with and was unlucky not to strike early on. (more…)
Another round of matches has come and gone, with mixed results 2 wins and 2 losses. The A’s went down to Coromandel Ramblers, with Shaun Krutli making another ton 111 and Darren “Barney” Williams another 5 wicket haul, second in two games. The B grade had their first win of the season defeating Sheidow Park 2, Riley Hains 33 and Jim Colley 27 best with the bat, Madhur Kaushal 4/10 and Prabath Perera 4/16 best bowling, congratulations to Jason and the 2nds on their first win. The thirds continued on their merry way with their third win defeating Shiedow Park 3, Luke Slattery 103, Graham Hartlett 43, Dawood Choudhry 3/20, Roger Ross 3/40. The D grade went down to Warradale, their report will come from “Warnie” to be posted later in the week. (more…)

South Road travelled to Brighton High to face Warradale in an eagerly anticipated match. The conditions were bright and sunny with a nice sea breeze. Warradale won the toss and their skipper uttered the exact words: ” We’ll-have-a-trundle!” It was a surprise to the Roads, who would have batted first anyway. The wisdom behind the decision being that Warradale would try and knock South Road over quickly and have a bash, then get the Roads back in before stumps on Day 1.
On Saturday 7th November 2015 Darren ‘Barney’ Williams took his 2nd successfive A Grade 5 for and in the process became only the 2nd South Road Cricketer to capture 500 Scalps.
Barney played his 1st Game for South Road Cricket Club back in Season 1987/1988 and the Majority of his 500 Wickets are ‘A’ Grade Wickets.

It loomed to be an important day for South Road as they continued their Round 2 match against Coromandel Ramblers at Weymouth Oval. Having set a good total of 212 on the board on Day 1, it was always going to be difficult to chase for the Ramblers. Under nothing but blue skies, South Road began with the same intensity as they did against Port Noarlunga, with positive talk amongst the fielders as they looked to get their first win on the board. The openers, Edmiston and Muir could not lay a bat on either Bocock or Petersen early on and they were setting themselves up for diaster. It was inevitable when Bocock trapped Edmiston lbw for 1 with not many runs on the board for the Ramblers.
Our results are getting better, 2 wins out of 4 for this round, with some notable performances throughout the grades. Firstly congratulations to Roger and his fourths their first win of the season and Rogers first win as a South Road Captain, Luke and the thirds just keep getting the job done, well done to both side. While the A’s and B’s both went down there are some encouraging signs with both teams having interrupted starts to the season, with player availability hopefully things will settle in the next round.
Noteable performances from Round 2 include Matthew Haybell 69 in his first A grade game, Darren Williams 5/25 not bad for an old fossil and Anthony May 4/69. Jim Colley 60, Rliey Hains 48, Roger Ross 4/40, Dawood Choudhry 3/16, Roger Nunn 54, Jordan Bocock 46 and Poul Petersen 4/20. Well done to all of you and keep up the good work.
Great to see Dan Vertue and Dave Roberts back playing. Dan congratulations on your recent nuptials (Marriage to Nicole) all members and the club wish you all the best for your future life together.
It was a good response from players re their subs this last round, the main reason behind our subs is so that all players can continue to play cricket for our club. We have financial obligations to the association, umpires, ground hire, Marion Council and equipment used. This enables the club to provide a game of cricket for all of you. Please remember to pay your match fees to your captain each game or you can make a once off payment to Treasurer Barn and if paid before Christmas a substantial reduction can be had (only if paying subs in full)
A positive is the number of players attending after match drinks and presentations, good numbers again at EBC. Remember to encourage your team mates to attend, part of playing at South Road is to get back and have a yarn and drink, celebrate our wins and commiserate our losses.
Some funny things I picked up on this last round, one of the new players to the A grade had some trouble with getting into his whites. I would have thought by now champ you would have learnt how to put on trousers! Who was the skipper that needed to go and meditate with a walk along the beach after his match? Then tried to claim it was a recovery session as advised by former player and now Port Star Hamish Hartlett. To the guy that has been fortunate to be around when the winning runs have been scored in the last two games, listen champ, it takes more than scoring 7 odd runs to be considered a finisher or closer but keep dreaming champ and let us know when you wake up.
Cheers for now, get around the Roads for the next game and look for a function after match awards on Saturday 14th November
