The Sharks have completed a wonderful season in fine style winning both the 1st and 2nd Grade Premierships in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League!
In 1st Grade, the club finally saluted to win its first title since amalgamating in 1987 with Coach Jeremy Smith and Assistant Coach Matthew Clark leading the boys to a history making win over the Kingborough Knights. George Bailey was awarded the Roger Woolley Medal for his two crucial innings of 123 and 59 respectively. Special mention also to Alex Doolan for a majestic 126 in the first innings and to Gabe Bell who took 4-53 and cracked the game open early on Day 2.
In 2nd Grade, George Woolley led his boys to their 2nd flag in the last 3 seasons accounting for Clarence with Harry Nichols (126), Mattie McKiernan (5-54 off 30 overs) and Kyle Wisniewski (4-28 off 22 overs) the key contributors along with the skipper himself who made 57 and shared in a 137 run partnership with Harry to see us to victory.
The board along will all the supporters are very proud of these 24 players along with all others who represented the club this season - you continue to develop as cricketers but more importantly as young men and women.
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.
