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!
