2017/18 Season

Sunday, 5 November

Today saw a very keenly contested round of cricket against Tuggeranong in 1st to 4th grades, with good wins coming to 3rd and 4th grades.

However the highlight of the day was a maiden ton to one of the club's stalwarts and life member Stephen Cross. After 28 seasons with the club, Crossy's previous best was 97 no, but today he finally achieved this very special milestone. Not only did he captain the team to victory, he also opened the innings and carried his bat being 128 not out at the completion of the innings. His hundred came off 114 balls. 4's also achieved a bonus point win in the process.

3rd grade also had a comfortable win over Tuggies at Neil Bulger. Unfortunately 1st could not repeat yesterdays effort losing to Tuggies and 2nds had a day the probably would like to forget.

The weekend ends with 7 wins from 9 matches, a pretty good effort.

Saturday, 4 November

The club secured its first Bluesweep of the season winning all 5 grades.

1st grade 247 def Eastlake 210, 2nd grade 5/243 def Eastlake 5/242, 3rd grade 5/358 def Eastlake 129, 4th grade 205 def Eastlake 160 and 5th grade 6/84 def Wests UC 83.

In the 3rd grade match, Lincoln Blissett (107) scored his maiden ton for the club. The 100 came off only 81 balls.

Star Performances

Saturday 28 October saw two players achieve personal milestones. Firstly Khye Ditton scored his maiden ton (117) with the 100 coming off 76 balls and in the same match Ryan Martin took 5/15 from 6 overs.

T20 Finals Results

In a gripping 3rd grade final, Queanbeyan batted first and at one stage lost 6 wickets for 4 runs to be 7/40 after 9 overs. Youngsters Lincoln Blissett and Braiden McCarten then put on 63 runs which allowed the team to post 111 from their 20 overs. Bolstered by that performance, the lads came out to bowl and every bowler stepped up to the mark and they ended restricting Tuggeranong to 9/105 from their 20 overs, literally snatching a win from the jaws of defeat.

Unfortunately 4th grade could not replicate their efforts from last season. Being put into bat by Eastlake and despite the efforts of Micah (45 no) could only muster 9/104 from their 20 overs. After the break, Eastlake got off to a flyer when the rain came after 2 overs (0/14). Upon the resumption, the number of overs was reduced to 14 with the revised target being 79. Wickets were picked up regularly and we had them at 6/43 after 8 overs. Unfortunately some lusty hitting by the Eastlakers enabled them to pass the revised score in the 11th over.

T20 Finals

Both 3rd and 4th grades qualified for the final after comprehensive wins in the semis last Sunday.

The final is on this Sunday with 3rd grade playing Tuggeranong at Manuka Oval (match starts at 11am) and then 4th grade will take on Eastlake at Neil Bulger Oval at 2.30pm.

There will be a BBQ after the 4th grade match.

All club members are encouraged to get along to both matches and support the lads in securing our first pieces of silverware for the season.

Queanbeyan District Cricket Club is part of the Good Sports Program

Sports clubs such as ours play a significant role in the community and therefore have a responsibility to our members and their families. In recognition of this, the Queanbeyan District Cricket Club has elected to participate in the Australian Drug Foundation’s Good Sports program.

The program is a national preventive health initiative designed to assist clubs with the responsible management of alcohol and provision of family-friendly sport environments.

As a community based club we believe involvement in this program is a way for our club to promote a healthy and welcoming club culture whilst working to consistently meet our duty of care obligations in regards to alcohol consumption.
