And the 2013-14 season kicks off ...
The season got off to a great start for our Junior teams, with both our Under 11s and Under 13s playing really well and posting victories in their opening one-day games. Great to see lots of smiling faces from the juniors at the canteen afterwards, and especially from the first-time cricketers. Highlights of the morning were an unbeaten 50 from Nicholas Hobden in the Under 11s and an opening partnership between Harley Thomas and Aashiq Booley in the Under 13s which took the side to victory without a wicket lost.
Day 1 of the season was less impressive for our senior teams, with 3rd grade, 8th grade (welcome to Jackson Park boys!) and both 11th grade teams chasing a lot of leather. The leather-chasers did, however, make a good dent in the contents of the canteen fridge in search of consolation and - in the case of some of the veteran players - much needed pain relief. Looking forward to turning the tables next week with some good batting from the City boys.

Our Under 10s look the part in their new training shirts
Our mighty Under 10s are not only playing great cricket this season but, from what I've been seeing at training, they are really enjoying themselves and have a good team spirit going.
Here they (plus a ring-in or two) are modelling their new training shirts (apologies for the crook photography).
Images of Lake Jackson - 11 February 2012
Ever wondered why Jackson park has a covering of weeds and rubbish after heavy rain? Here's what happened on the afternoon of Saturday 11 February 2012.
After the matches were called off due to the fields being boggy from rain during the week, 4th Grade and 11th Grade were playing a friendly until storm clouds came over and the rain started bucketing down.
The flood starts - about 5 minutes after the downpour started, the stormwater drain in the corner of Field 4 (where the Under 10s and 11s play) started welling up and flowed onto the edge of the field.
It only took about 1 minute for the water to make it to the edge of the pitch
Within a further minute, the whole of field 4 was underwater.
The magnificent sight of Lake Jackson at high tide led two of our intrepid (or stupid?) 4th graders Jeff Corbett and Stirling Savona to head out for a swim. Not sure whether it was a close lightning strike, a pihrana or just the water temperature, but Jeff wasn't keen to stay for too long.
Here's the scenery of Lake Jackson taken from the carpark, with the canteen in the foreground.
