SHSBCC v. at
All up a fairly successful weekend for the Sharks with wins for the 1's, 2's, 3's & U15's! Sharkman has the full wrap, with Pete Eastment the major talking point from the weekend making a maiden hundred in Second Grade!
1st Grade - Sharks 174 (Nichols 55, Martin 33) def. New Town 131 (all bowlers used 2 wickets each). After a shaky start with the bat, Harry Nichols, Stu Martin & Dan Willoughby all chipped in to get us to a modest but defend-able total of 174. The bowling display was excellent in difficult windy conditions, with all bowlers impressing, handing the Sharks a win in Kyle Wisniewski's debut!
2nd Grade - New Town 201 (Oakes 4-48, Bhatti 3-24) lost to Sharks 5-202 (Eastment 103*, Young 44). Seven wickets between young gun Caleb Oakes & Maj Bhatti restricted the Bucks to 202 while a superb maiden ton from Pete Eastment and a timely 44 from Sam Young got the Sharks over the line with two overs to spare.
3rd Grade - Sharks 201 (Pascoe 85, Savill 31) def New Town 154 (Savill 4-20). The win was set up by Ed Pascoe hammering 85 and Adam Savill making some handy lower order runs before he blasted the Bucks taking 4 wickets.
U17's - New Town 7-244 def Sharks 8-157 (Browne 57*)
Women's - New Town 2-229 def. Sharks 74
U15's - New Town 131 lost to Sharks 4-132 in the last over
Sharkman is thrilled to announce Linsey Da Costa as the Sharks Women's coach for 2015/16! Linsey has played at the Sharks for a number of years now, as well as having played for the Tasmanian Roar & the Hampshire women's county side. It promises to be an exciting season ahead for the girls! If you would like to play for the Sharks women's side this summer, let Sharkman know!
With Round One less than 3 weeks away, the Sharks senior meng have ramped up their training. In preparation for the season, the Sharks played Lindisfarne in a 40 over a side practice match on the weekend. The boys were able to successfully chase down the target of 190, with Lachie Fraser & Sean Willis retiring on 54 & 46 respectively, while young Sharks Dan Willoughby and Kayden Hine also impressed in their first hit out for the club. It was good to see Trent Keep & James Green back from their winter cricketing trips, while Harry Nichols & Timm van der Gugten will be back soon!
In breaking news, Sharkman is thrilled to hear that four Sharks - George Bailey, Xavier Doherty, Alex Doolan & Hamish Kingston have been selected in Tasmania's Matador Cup squad. Big congrats to all four, and we wish them all the best!

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.
