BHRDCA Snr & Jnr Grade Semi Final Matches/Venues confirmed

All BHRDCA Senior & Junior Clubs,

 All Semi Finalists and playing Venues have been determined by final MyCricket Ladder placings and/or where applicable (Grades with Bye Rounds) via Match Ratio Ladder placings. For a handful of matches, neutral venues were required and have been designated in place of the normal Home Venue, usually because the Home Club had a higher Graded team scheduled at their Home Venue.

 For those teams who played in Grades with Bye Rounds, the Match Ratio Ladders at the completion of the H & A Season have also been uploaded to the BHRDCA Website (Club Playing Resources > Match Ratio Ladder)

 Good Luck to all teams in the Finals…

ON THE HUNT FOR UMPS

Umpires play one of the biggest roles in the cricketing world, but the BHRDCA is still looking for more for the upcoming season.

 By Josh Ward

BHRDCA Umpire Association president Phil Hermann told bhrdca.com.au that part of the reason it was struggling was due to the toll it’s taken on some of them.

“There’s been issues because some of our guys are older, it’s taking its toll being able to stand out there for a period of time.”

Hermann is back as the president of the association for his third year, and after plenty of years of experience, he still enjoys being a part of a game he loves.

“It’s something that keeps my interest in the game of cricket and in the end, you’ve got the best seat in the house.”

And whilst it’s had its funny and intense days over the years, it still has plenty of benefits, including having a drink after each game.

“The best part is then having a beer with the guys after the game, talking about anything, not necessarily cricket,” Hermann said.

He’s been with the BHRDCA for a while now and says he’s very fortunate that he’s gotten to umpire here, particularly up in the higher grades.

“I’m fortunate I’ve umpired pretty high grand finals in the time that I’ve been here, I’ve had some success that way, I also like to think I’m fairly well respected in that regard.”

However this year being president has been tough due to the lower numbers, believing they need to bring in umpires with past cricket experience.

“I’m sure they’ll find they’ll enjoy it just as much as cricket because everyone I know of has played the game at some stage. We need people who’ve got that experience to participate and have a go at it.”

He added that they don’t even need them to umpire every weekend.

“Even if they could give us one game a month or something like that, it would take some pressure off the guys that we do have. It also gives us an opportunity to field further down the grade.

They have bought in a new umpire advisor in Nick Davies, who has umpired in the 3rd and 2nd (Men and Women) XI of Victorian Premier Cricket.

Replacing the unwell Des Hearn, Hermann added that he’ll bring ideas as well as bringing knowledge to the younger umpires and keeping the older ones active.

“It’s a good learning curve for him and development wise in which he can impart some of that developing strategy into our less experienced umpires to help them along and keep the experienced ones on their toes with fresh thoughts.”

Hermann mentioned that people should join the BHRDCA because they can still be involved in cricket this way.

“They can still be a part of the cricket community in this area if they take on umpiring, they don’t give it away completely.”

There will be an umpires meeting on Wednesday night, with new advisor Nick Davies as well as Hermann being there.

BHRDCA – A Sport For All Nomination Recognition

BHRDCA Nominated for Community Cricket Association of the Year

The BHRDCA was delighted to be nominated in this category under the recent Cricket Victoria ‘Sport for All’ awards.

Whilst not winning the award, to be nominated is great recognition for our association, clubs, players, umpires, many volunteers, sponsors and all involved in the BHRDCA.

We were nominated based on our collaborative approach, prepared to look at new ideas, open your minds to outside your own bubble, support CV programs, a mindset of being prepared to listen to the club’s needs, work well as a team’ amongst other traits.

These awards are the pinnacle of the community cricket season and we will certainly ‘tap into’ CV to better understand where best practices lie and how we can bring those to the association and our member clubs.

Below is a letter of acknowledgement from Andrew Ingleton, Cricket Victoria CEO.

UPDATE From BHRDCA CoM 26th March 2020

We are living in amazing and unprecedented times that are providing enormous challenges for everyone in every aspect of daily life.

 Cricket may well be the least of those for some people and that is acknowledged.

Many clubs have had to cancel presentation day, or night, which is a tough call especially when we should be celebrating individual and team success.

Similarly, the BHRDCA presentation night, scheduled for April 3rd, cannot proceed in the current environment.

We do propose to hold this in the future and acknowledge those that have achieved success this season, our valued sponsors and other key stakeholders that are strong supporters of the association. The timing of this is, however, unclear today.

There has  been emails sent to our sponsors in the interim thanking them for their support and assuring them that when the sun comes up again, we will be here and we hope our partnership continues. We will continue to promote them where possible via the website and social media. If an opportunity presents to support them then I am sure they would love to hear from anyone within the BHRDCA community, and let them know you are part of the BHRDCA community.

The CoM are planning as we normally would for the pre AGM and AGM although the challenge of how to hold those events is still to be resolved. No doubt clubs will be faced with similar challenges and we will work through the logistics as best we can or consider postponing the scheduled events based on Government advice and rules imposed.

We trust that everyone, and your loved ones, stay safe through the turmoil and we all get out the other side bigger and stronger. With the absence of AFL and many other local sports, it underlines what an important role sporting clubs play in the local community and why so many volunteers give their time to ensure it is a thriving and vibrant environment within each club. It will be a great day when the clubs are populated and buzzing again.

Let’s stay the course together and look out for each other.

Regards

BHRDCA CoM
