Gordon stung by the Bumblebees

A very disappointing first round back after Christmas, with only two wins out of five against UNSW. Seconds had a convincing bonus point win and Fifths chased well, but the other grades all let good opportunities slip away. The Colts played Easts on Sunday. Gordon bowled first in the top five grades but, in most…

We are back on air

Hi all After a disturbing period of having a compromised site, the GDCC website is back in action. You will note the last post was in late November, and we will start again hopefully with the wrap from this weekend’s matches against UNSW. Thanks to everyone for their patience.

Welcome back Axel – A solid round for the Stags

Quite a solid round for the Stags. First Grade got back into the winners’ circle while 4ths, 5ths and Colts also got the points. 2nds needed a few more runs and 3rds couldn’t capitalise on a good start. The innings of the week came from Axel Cahlin, whose century in 1st Grade ensured their win.…

Dreading it really only because I could no longer sit at Chatswood Oval and watch one of the best batsmen to ever play on our sacred ground. That�s is a…

Five Out of Six is Pretty Handy

A good weekend for the Stags as Seconds to Colts all have strong wins, including two outrights. First Grade couldn’t quite make the vital breakthroughs in their game, but the lower grades performed very well. Second Grade and Fifth Grade both completed outright victories on the back of good bowling and excellent run chases by…

Bowlers Revenge against the Ghosts

A good day’s work by most teams. Unlike last week, in most games the ball dominated the bat with Jackson Saggers (2nds), Dan Stickland (3rds) and Dave Monaghan (5ths) all taking five wickets. The highlight of the day though, was undoubtedly in 4th Grade. At 6-45, you’re probably not thinking you’ll be able to declare…

It’s a Batsman’s Game

“It’s a Batsman’s Game!” the bowlers shout. Well, from the looks of the weekend, just around now they may have a point. Lots of runs while wickets were certainly hard to come by. A satisfactory day for the Stags, with three wins, two draws and a loss. Some great scores, particularly from Jamie Bekis (165*)…
