Junior News 19/1/12

See news here including Team contacts and roster for rest of season.

Hi All
This week we are well and truly back in to cricket with all our junior teams participating.
Last week the U/13s kicked off their season with the Ten/10 Carnival. This proved to be a fantastic day with 8 teams from our association competing.
Fulham were represented with 2 teams and also assisted Western Youth to field a team this team was called Western United, all of the Fulham players were picked out of a hat and I was really proud of the way all the Fulham boys accepted the teams they were placed in and then went on to play excellent cricket. 
After a great days cricket and many close and exciting games that featured interesting and exotic batting shots, it was the 2 Fulham teams that reached the final both being undefeated.
The final was a real spectacle. Fulham Black batted first and set the formidable total of 79. Fulham Red then went in to bat and it looked as if it was going down to the wire. Towards the end though some spectacular batting saw the Reds go on to win easily and set the highest score ever in these carnivals of 100 runs.
These carnivals are great fun, but also a fair bit of work, so I would really like to thank all the parents who either helped out with managing the cricket teams or alternatively helped cook a bbq or served in the canteen, it certainly was a day where everyone chipped in – so thanks to all.
Thanks also to Cheryl and the others fom WSJCA for running a really top competition we are now looking forward to the U/11s this week.
The U/11s have their carnival this week so it is really important that if you intend to play, you get to training this Friday or if you can’t train but want to play that you let me know.
On Sunday the games start at 9.00am but I would like you all there at 8.15am so that we can get our teams organized in plenty of time.
This carnival will take a little bit of extra work than a normal game.  Each team will need at least 3 parents to help manage them through the day plus we will require the bbq and canteen to be manned and also the ovals need to be set up prior to play.  If everyone does their fair share, like last weekend with the U/13s, everything will go pretty smoothly so please come prepared to help.
The U/15 Reds were narrowly defeated by Grange last weekend in a top of the table clash.
The U/15 Blacks had a Bye. 
Good luck to all this Weekend.

The Fulham Cricket Club has registered with the McGrath Foundation to participate in Pink Stumps Day 2012.   The Weekend of 18/19th February.
At this stage, we are looking for ideas from both Juniors and Seniors as to how best to organise fundraising activities over this weekend.
It’s a great cause, that I’m sure many of you can relate to.  It’s a great opportunity to raise some money and at the same time unite the Juniors & Seniors of our Club.
So, I would love to hear of any ideas or anyone who wants to get involved to make this a successful weekend.
