The South Hobart Sandy Bay Cricket Club is thrilled to announce the signing of a new major sponsor for the next 3 seasons!
Ant Manton and Ray White Real Estate Southern Tasmania have very generously put their support and sponsorship behind the Sharks up until season 2017/18 in a partnership we think will provide ongoing benefits for the club, Ant and Ray White, and the players and members of the South Hobart Sandy Bay Sharks.
As part of the deal, Ray White Real Estate Southern Tasmania will appear on all senior playing shirts while Ant has agreed to sponsor the “Ray White Player of the Round” to the best performing Shark in all grades.
All members of the club will also have the opportunity to benefit from a special membership deal if selling their house through Ant and his team, while any sale or purchase of a house generated through a referral from club members will provide the Sharks with additional sponsorship so make sure you are on the lookout and recommending Ant and Ray White Real Estate Southern Tasmania to friends and family from now on!!!
The Board and all members would like to thank Ant in advance for his strong commitment to the Sharks and look forward to working closely over the next 3 seasons as we aim to build on the growth and success in previous years of both organisations.
Pre season has started! Check out the 'Seniors' tab for more training times and more info.
Their are a number of Sharks playing cricket over winter, and Sharkman has the full wrap up.
There are a number of Sharks plying their trade in the UK. George Bailey is playing county cricket, while Harry Nichols & Trent Keep are playing club cricket in England and Scotland respectively. Sean Willis is also playing club cricket, while also training with county side Hampshire on a Cricket Australia scholarship.
Timm van der Gugten started the English summer playing in England, before playing some international fixtures for the Netherlands, where he has found some good form, taking plenty of runs and wickets. Also in the Netherlands is Xavier Doherty, who is playing club cricket over there.
Closer to home, Jimmy Green is playing in Darwin, at the same club coach Jeremy Smith played at a few years ago. The Sharks remaining Tassie contracted players Alex Doolan, Hamish Kingston & Gabe Bell are currently training hard for the Tigers pre season.
Congrats to skipper Alex Quinn and the boys winning the Third Grade Premiership!
The Sharks rolled Kingborough for 112, with Michael Flanagan the chief destroyer taking 5-26, and 15 year old dynamo Caleb Oakes chiming in with 3-26. The Sharks were in trouble in the chase at 6-65, but enter ice men Sam Wright (42*) and Tom Green (33) who with the support of Sam Young (28)saw the Sharks to first innings points, finishing on 139.
The Knights were after quick runs to try and set up an outright win, but were stopped in their tracks by skipper Alex Quinn, who tore through the batting line up. Quinn finished with 6-47 as the Knights declared at 9-92.
In front of a large home crowd, the Sharks started their chase well, with Ferg Richardson (28) and Sam Young (31*) all but ensuring a Sharks flag! It was fitting to see captain Quinn and Youngy at the crease when the winning runs were hit, seeing the boys home to a convincing 8 wicket win!
