‘D’ Grade Season Review by Mark ‘Warney’ Mitton

South Road IV Season Report 2015/16

This didn’t turn out to be the best of years for the South Road D Grade team. They had a lot of issues throughout the season such as selection dilemmas after Round 3 due to lack of numbers in the higher teams, which is no one’s fault but it left the D’s without their opening bowler and batsman for the rest of the year. Players were selected to play higher up as the year went on and things did not get any easier as the team was depleted with a lack of depth in both of the batting and bowling departments. This shows with the Premier Fast Bowling of Poul Petersen taking 7 wickets in the first three games and not returning for the rest of the year. No one was able to pass Peto to claim the D Grade Bowling Trophy. Congratulations, Peto! The closest competition Peto had for the Bowling Trophy was Aaron Schmidt, who was runner-up with 5 wickets. Third was shared between the two spinners, Robbie Kiss and myself, Mark Mitton taking 4 wickets each but to be fair Robbie missed the first 3 games and would have definitely taken a few more wickets in those games if he’d played. As for the batting, Dave Ewers was the top run getter with 247 runs beating our Captain, Roger Nunn on 205 runs. Dave scored a terrific ton in our game against Morphy Park at Seaview HS and has been our most consistent batsman all year. (more…)
