The Caulfield Grammarians/NCG Cricket Club enjoyed an excellent 2017/18 season on and off the field, with two of our three teams qualifying for finals and our financial position solid thanks to the efforts of our unflappable treasurer Chris Fagan. Planning is well underway for season 2018/19, as the club enters a critical transition period. The committee and members met recently to discuss next season plus our long-term strategy.
As many of you will be aware, the Caulfield Grammarians’ Cricket Club was re-formed in 2007 following the 2006/07 cricket season in which the club did not participate in any competition. Since then, the club has survived and prospered thanks to the efforts of club stalwarts Cameron Scholten, Brett Scott, Nathan Guyett, Vishal Brahmbhatt, Harshil Shah, Cameron Guyett, John Borneman, Gaurav Sharga, Cameron Dickson and Peter Prior, along with treasurer Chris Fagan and Grant Poulter (president). This period also witnessed a successful amalgamation with North Caulfield Glenhuntly Cricket Club in 2011.
Nevertheless, with all of the above members nudging 30 years of age (or well and truly past that) succession and new recruits are sorely needed to ensure the club has a viable future. We want to ensure that the CGA continues to have a cricket affiliate as an offering to past students, and as a result we will be working closely with the School, the CGA and the Caulfield Grammarians’ Football Club in planning the next phase of the club’s history.
We are fortunate to play at a fantastic ground at Glenhuntly Park, which also serves as the home of CGFC and it is a great asset for everyone involved.
If you are interested in being part of the cricket club’s next phase, be it in a playing or volunteer capacity please contact me at [email protected] – it would be great to hear from you!
Pre-season training will commence in September ahead of the season kick-off in mid October.
