Junior D Cricket Team

page 57

Junior D Cricket Team.

The fourth eleven of the 'Varsity Cricket Club spent a very enjoyable season. The personnel of the team changed considerably towards the end of the season, but at all times the members were enthusiastic.

The team was beaten in many of its games by the smallest of margins, and was unlucky to secure only eight championship points.

The batting department of the team discovered to the club a very promising player in McCarthy, who captained the St. Pat's College First Eleven last year. This player had eight completed innings with the good average of 36 runs per innings. Bad wickets accounted for his downfall on each occasion, and next year should see him in the First or Second Eleven of the club.

Supporting batsmen were Nicols, Richmond, Stace, Struthers, Frazer and Carey. The bowling of the team was equally divided among Nichols, Stace, Struthers and Richmond, while Taylor also bowled.

The fielding of the team was of fair order all the season, and most players improved every match. Struthers and Scholefield were two players who took three catches each in a single innings.

The team pulled together during the whole season, and the captain's part was a wholly enjoyable one.
