Women’s Cricket coming to Edwardstown

This season, for the first time, women and girls will be able to play cricket at South Road in all-female teams. We are aiming to make it possible for female players to build their cricket skills and be confident on the field, whether batting, bowling, keeping or fielding.

For the first part of the season, we will be hosting SACA’s 6-week Super Cricket competition at Edwardstown on Thursday nights. Female players of all ages and cricket experience are invited. Because of the shorter format, games run for around 70 minutes, starting from 5:30. All players get a chance to bat and bowl. The program is free, and SACA will provide all equipment and coaching. Food and beverages will be available for purchase from both the canteen and bar.

If you know any girls or women who are interested in cricket and want to give it a go, please let them know that they can play at Edwardstown on Thursday nights from October 31st to December 5th. The more people we have, the better will be our competition, so please help spread the word.

For more information, head to the SACA Super Cricket website or contact Joanna on 0467 048 996. 

In 2020, a similar competition will be run for 6-8 weeks. More details will be released soon, once the format has been finalised.

Women's Social Pairs Registrations are now open

Juniors Program

In term 4, South Road will be running our first junior cricket program at the new Edwardwards oval. Starting on Tuesday the 22nd of October at 4pm we will be running the Cricket Australia Junior Blast program.

The program is aimed at kids who’ve never played cricket before, and Cricket Australia gives a guide of 5-7 years old. Participants also get a t-shirt, hat, bat, ball, and a goodie bag. More info about the program can be found here.

So if you know anyone who has young kids who might be keen let them know.

Also if you’re a Roadie and are keen to help out, let us know.

You can sign up here or give Matt Altus a call on 0408644469 for more details.

2019-20 Captains Announced

Hello Roadies.

I have some exciting news for you all. Pre-season is just around the corner and on top of that all remaining Capitan positions have been filled! 

This season we are back with 4 teams, the Committee putting big efforts into recruitment across the off-season. We are not done yet though, the new fee structure will be released soon with a bonus $30 discount to all members that bring in a new Roadie. You both will need to pay for the full season and before round 3. More details to come…

The Captains for the upcoming season will be:

A Grade: Todd Andrews 

Todd has been around the club for many years now, joining us as a young lad and growing into the leader he is today. Todd has always had a club first attitude, helping out whenever it’s needed regardless of the grade. With Todd at the helm the A Grade this will be another strong performance upon returning to Section 2.

B Grade: Mark Richards

After completing his first season at the club Mark has put his hand up to do the B Grade. Richo is an absolute character, you are never exactly sure what he will say next but you know you’re in for a good laugh. Richo is also a fierce competitor on the cricket field with the ability to take this team a long way. 

C Grade: Scott Trowbridge 

Scott is entering his 3rd season at the club. With an always positive attitude on and off the field. Looking to build on what he has achieved at SRCC so far. Scott will be looking for a competitive Season 2019-20, and to put a newly learned cover drive to good use. 

D Grade: Stephen Badger 

Stephen is the youngest of this group but by no means can you hold that against him. Highly educated and driven to showcase his skills, it’s great to see Badger put his hand up. Badger wants to bring the fight back to our bottom side to build on and improve upon last year.

All Captains are in their first season at SRCC. As Skipper I urge all players to respect and listen to your Captains. The Committee has selected this Group as the best possible candidates and will back the Captains to achieve their goals. 

Regards,

Aaron Schmidt.
