To all BHRDCA Junior Clubs,

As advised by Tom Anderson (BHRDCA Junior Section Mgr.), the 2017/18 season BHRDCA Junior Section Rules, incorporating all competitions from Super 7’s & Fast 9’s to Under 18’s, have now been uploaded onto the BHRDCA Website.

Go to the BHRDCA Website > Club & Playing Resources > Rules & Regulations > Junior Rules

Please ensure all Coaches/Team Managers & where applicable; Captains, familiarise themselves with the 2017/18 Rules, which have been updated to reflect changes & improvements discussed pre season as well as modifications brought about by the Marylebone Cricket Club’s update of the Laws of Cricket (Code 2017), prior to the commencement of this season.

Should you have any concerns or require clarification on any Rules included, don’t hesitate to contact Tom or BHRDCA Admin. Mgr.; Steve Flemming through the normal channels.

The BHRDCA has secured a $5000.00 grant from Cricket Victoria to continue developing junior female cricket within the association. Hot on the heels of winning the u/12 VMCU Claudia Fatone shield in January, this will assist in continuing the development of those players and providing opportunities for them. In addition , ALL clubs are requested to have female participation in their thoughts as they plan for the upcoming junior season.


This area is a big push from both Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia with the Big Bash season to have female teams for each franchise this season and the profile of female cricket continuing to grow. Clubs will be able to work with the association as part of this grant to attract players and help with equipment, clothing, training and other resources to develop individuals and teams.


More information can be sought from the Committee of Management and a huge thanks to Ross Chambers who did the leg work to secure this.

Junior Presentation Day Invitation (2) (2)

Junior cricketers – don’t pack the bat away just yet!

AMP IT UP Holiday Programs delivered by SEDA offer boys and girls aged 5-12 a fun, safe and engaging program across a range of sports, including a Melbourne Stars program. Next Holiday Program near you is on 7th – 8th April at Gordon Barnard Reserve, Belmore Road, Balwyn North. Visit www.ampitupevents.com.au and check out our launch specials on selected programs.




Special announcement! Liam Smith wins Doug Rickarby Medal.


Blackburn North’s Liam Smith was a clear winner of the second Doug Rickarby Medal for the U/18 Player of the Year.


Liam polled 13 votes to win from team mate Evan Smeed with 10 votes and a 3 way tie for 3rd between Josh Merrett (Heathmont), Zach Tzitsikas (Eley Park) and Tom Macrokanis (Mitcham/Blackburn) all on 9.


Liam had a fantastic year with the bat scoring 552 runs from 7 inn with 5 not outs to average a sensational 276.00. Included in that total were 4 unbeaten centuries, an 87 and an unbeaten half century – truly Bradman like figures.


The last T20 Blast is on this Wednesday, 25 February, at East Box Hill CC from 5pm-6.30pm. This program has been running for 10 weeks and the boys and girls have had a great time with the games being run by SEDA students, music playing, and a visit from Sharelle McMahon as well!

This week is the last week and is an ideal time to come and try for Milo kids and others that are wanting to progress to a more structured game style where all the players bat bowl and field. This is the ideal stepping stone from Milo to under 10s and 12s cricket.

There will be a FREE snag and drink for all players at the end so come along and give your players a great look at what awaits them next season.

See you at the last Blast!

As the T20 Blast started up for 2015, we were lucky enough to have a visit from Australian netball legend Sharelle McMahon as part of the Melbourne Stars & BHRDCA partnership.

The Vermont all girls team got some help from Sharelle who took a catch and sent down an over when the girls bowled. Sharelle then spoke to all the teams sharing her sporting journey and took questions from the boys and girls. After extensive autograph signing and endless pics the T20 Blast girls and boys went home very happy.


Thanks Sharelle!

Hi Clubs,

Have you had any kids enquire about playing cricket or playing some more cricket? After another successful Big Bash and with World cup fever about to kick in….some further options include:


New T20 Blast Centres:


Whether you have a team or just the odd child or two keen to get involved in a full 8 week T20 Blast Centre, we can provide opportunities at:


– Friday evenings commencing 6/2/15 – Morton Park Blackburn from 6pm til 7.30pm
– Sunday mornings commencing 8/2/15 – Walker Park Nunawading from 9.30am til 11am


Participants are welcome to come for a Free Come & Try opportunity on these days and then sign up if they are keen to be involved throughout Feb/March.


One Off opportunities to try T20 Blast in February:


We are also encouraging clubs who have not yet become involved in T20 Blast to give it a go! We have capacity to accommodate some teams made up of Milo in2CRICKET kids at East Box Hill CC Howard Wilson Oval .


Our goal is to give the Milo kids the chance to experience T20 Blast as it is the next step in their Cricketing pathway before entering Junior cricket. It is a great chance for Coordinators to experience T20 Blast also and hopefully will provide a better insight for next season when it comes to Registration Days and working out which format a child may be best suited to!


To take up this opportunity, please call Chris Gorrie on 0449 7746 85.

Perhaps it was the changeover from the two day to a one day format, there were a couple of unexpected results in both grades that have resulted in a tightening of the race for finals spots. After a week of wet weather, we lucked out again with a fine and barmy evening.

U18 – Report 6

BHRDCA win the VMCU U/12 Girls Fatone Shield for 2015.

Sunday 18 January, Chelsworth Park


Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Association (BHRDCA) U12 girls captain, Lara Shannon (Templestowe CC) won the toss and elected to bowl.


Some tight fielding and great bowling, saw Ferntree Gully & District Cricket Association (FGDCA) contained to 4/23 after 8 overs. FTG then fought back, and were 5/94 after 17 overs.


The 18th over, bowled by Caitlin Morando (Kerrimuir CC) produced 4 wickets,
including two run outs, and FTG finished at 9/130cc.


Lara with 3/7, and Caitlin with 2/6, were clearly excellent, but the efforts of Ashling O’Farrell (Blackburn South CC), 1/8 and Vaishnavi Munukutla (Nunawading CC), 1/17 were quite significant.


Sisters, Brooke and Kate Vickers (both Blackburn CC), bowled some of the very important overs at the end of FTG’s innings and helped to keep the score to an achievable target.


Our batting was always steady, and never fell behind the required run rate. Ali Elliot (Blackburn CC) opened with Lara, and they set about reeling in the largest total we have chased all carnival.


After 8 overs we were 0/49, with the third batting pair of Vaishnavi and Sierra Maharaj (Nunawading CC) coming in to bat for the important middle overs. They may have only added 7 runs together, but most importantly, neither was dismissed. A great effort by our youngest two players. Some terrific lower order batting, especially from Hailey Ferris (Heatherdale CC), saw us reach 4/146cc, and post a memorable win.


To top this off, Caitlin was awarded the player of the final by umpires, Liam MacGibbon and Harry Sherrard.


We applaud the spirited efforts of the FTG girls, who took it right up to us, in a see-sawing match, that easily could have gone either way.


Many thanks to Darren Montgomery and Sonia Kulkarni for coaching this great team of girls.

BHRDCA Junior Section Manager

Great News!


The inaugural BHRDCA U12 Fatone girls team won their grand final yesterday!


Box Hill 4/101 + 45 bonus runs total 4/146 defeated Ferntree Gully 9/110 + 20 bonus runs total 9/130.


Congratulations girls on an outstanding performance, & many thanks to Darren and Sonia for their fantastic coaching.

Our three U18 regional team partners, (Emus, Eagles and Scorpions) were unable to qualify for finals this past week. On Monday, the U16 and U14 teams begin their campaigns.

In the U15 Craig Shield, Box Hill have taken 2nd. Spot in their group by less than 0.05%, to move into finals. They play Brighton on Tuesday at Box Hill City Oval

Balwyn will play Yarraville at Balwyn park, having finished top of their group. Unfortunately, Kew have finished last in the same group, and will not play finals.

Our U18 team finished third with 3 wins and 2 losses. No opportunity to progress as there are no semi finals.

The U16 Beitzel turf team won two of five matches, losing the last match by only two runs to the overall top team.

The U16 Mackay, not only finished eighth to play a quarter final, they then beat the top side, and then had a fantastic semi final, losing to MPCA.

The U14 Allen team lost a very tight home quarter final, while the U14 Nolan team was washed out in their quarter final, and could not proceed as they were the away team

The U12 Mitchell team finished without a win, but managed to avoid last place by percentage.

The U12 Browne team, played two quarter finals, both washed out draws, going through to the semi as the home team. They lost a close semi to NMCA, to be our best performed boys team overall.

This leaves our U12 girls team to play their grand final today at Chelsworth park, Irvine road, Ivanhoe. The match starts at 10 am and should conclude at about 1.30pm.


It would be fantastic if we can get some BHRDCA support for these young ladies today, as I am sure our opponents from FTCDCA will have plenty of supporters too.

Hope to see you there…



Kind regards

On Sunday 4th January Box Hill Reporter District Cricket Assn welcomed in the new year in hosting a visiting touring school team from Timaru New Zealand at East Burwood Reserve.


Under overcast skies the visitors won the toss and elected to bat. Despite some lively pace from Box Hill’s Dean Wilding and Jed Dally the score rose steadily reaching a handy 34 before Wilding got one to nip back rattling opener Shaun Rooney’s stumps for 23.


The Kiwi top order again began to consolidate but the introduction of Matt Magee and Grant Weaver had immediate effect with Magee in particular having the batsmen in all sorts of trouble and the middle order collapse left the visitors in trouble at 6/76.


Any thoughts of a revival were quickly expelled by Sam Kimber and Ronan Prigg as they cleaned up the tail restricting Timaru to 111 all out. Magee 3/11 and Kimber 2/5 returned the best figures but all bowlers did a great job.


After an enormous afternoon tea Janit Ratnayake and Zach Tziskas began Box Hill’s run chase. Both openers got a start before falling victim to Timaru’s Josh Mehrtens who chimed in with a third victim trapping Ronan Prigg in front to have the home team struggling at 3/30.


This brought skipper Michael Baysinger and Justin Beach together and it was their quickfire 70 run partnership that put the game out of doubt Michael retiring on 49 and Justin on 25 steering Box Hill through to an excellent win.


Josh Mehertens for Timaru and Michael Baysinger for Box Hill were adjudged Players of the Match.

BHRDCA U/12 Girls are first team into a 2015 VMCU carnival Grand Final.


Having won all three of their round robin matches, our U12 girls team, was to play a semi final on 9/01/15. It was washed out, and while the other semi final was still in progress, across the other side of Melbourne, our team progressed to the final, as the higher finishing team.


Therefore we I think we can (cheekily) claim we had the first team into a grand final for the 2015 carnival.


While our inaugural girls representative team has had un-defeated progress to the grand final, our other seven teams have had mixed results.


The U/18 team has won 2, lost 1 and are 2nd on ladder with today’s match v ECA probably deciding who will progress to the grand final (no semi final in this grade).


The U/16 Beitzel turf team, has dropped its last two matches after starting with a win in a run fest (400 runs in the day off 90 overs), and are needing to win today and tomorrow to make the semi finals.


The U/16 Mackay team has struggled early and lost first three matches, but won a thriller by one run on Friday, to not only get off the bottom of the ladder, but give themselves a shot at a quarter final place.


The U/14 Allen team started with a narrow loss to arch rival ECA, but have turned it around with two wins, and a good chance of a home quarter final.


The U/14 Nolan team started in a blaze, winning the first two matches, but have come back to earth with a loss, but still in the top four, and a good chance of a home quarter final.


The U/12 Mitchell team has yet to register a win, but has been competitive in every match. A win today will see them back in the hunt.


The U/12 Browne team has won 2 , drawn 1, and lost 1, to be top 4. A win today should confirm a home quarter final on Tuesday.


This time last year we were trying to keep cool in the middle of days after days of 40 degrees plus weather, and no play. This week much cooler conditions and some rain about to annoy us all.


Today should be fine and warm as all the boys teams are in action. Get along to a match today if you can, and fly the BHRDCA flag!


U/18’s away v ECA at Donvale Reserve #1 turf wicket (Donvale cricket Club)
U/16 Beitzel, home v FTGDCA at Springfield park turf wicket (next to Kerrimuir CC)
U/16 Mackay, away v MPCA at Bruce park, Frankston
U/14 Allen, home v NWMCA at East Burwood #1
U/14 Nolan, home v WRJCA at East Burwood #2
U/12 Mitchell, home v NWMCA at Heatherdale #1
U/12 Browne, home v ECA at Heatherdale #2


We also had many of our U/15 boys are playing in the Craig Shield completion for a variety of Sub district clubs, which started last Tuesday.


Of those, several are at Kew CC, who has had a slow start; and a strong representation at Box Hill CC, who are so far un-defeated, including a great win against Oakleigh, yesterday at Springfield park.



Many players are involved in Emus, Eagles and Scorpions U/14 to U/18 regional teams.
Yesterday the u18 Emus and U18 Scorpions both lost, but the u18 eagles had a great win, with Lincoln Wong of Heathmont CC getting amongst the runs.


Good Luck to all teams!

U18 Arnold shield, BHRDCA v NWMCA, Round 3 to be played at City oval, Box Hill 8/01/2015.

BHRDCA wish to advise that due to the centre wicket at City Oval, Box Hill, being drenched today by rain, before the covers could be put in place (and washing out the u15 match in progress), it has been decided to make a call to move this match to a synthetic wicket instead. This is also due to the fact that city oval will remain uncovered overnight, and more rain is forecast.


So details of new venue are :

East Burwood Reserve south, Burwood highway, East Burwood. Map 62 B7.


BHRDCA will provide all player drinks and lunch for both teams and officials, as we would have done at city oval.


We apologies that this match cannot take place on a turf wicket..I know our team were really looking forward to playing on the best turf facilities in the City of Whitehorse.

BHRDCA U/12 girls posted their first win today! The team made 4/180 on reply to Western Region 9/68.


Scores will be adjusted for loss of wickets by adding 45 runs to our score and 29 runs to their score.


Congratulations girls. You all played as a team, and fielded and bowled brilliantly


Thank you to Darren and Sonia for great coaching. See you tomorrow same ground and start time to play Diamond Valley.
