Burwood Uniting Canterbury Cricket Club would like to invite our Junior Cricketers back for the for the upcoming 2018-19 Season.
After a successful 2017-18 season with our U18 team Premiers, U16 playing in the semi-final and U14 playing in the Grand Final we’re looking forward to another successful year in 2018-19.
Junior Cricket is for boys and girls from 8 years old with a focus on participation up to those under 18 on the 1st September 2018. Some of our older juniors also play in our senior teams, a great experience with the potential for father and son / parent and child playing a game together.
BUCCC is expecting to field teams in all age groups, U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 and looking for expressions of interest for an all girls team playing on Wednesday nights.
Please use this link to register via My Cricket.
We also run a “Junior Blaster” programme on Sunday between 9:00 am and 10:30 am. Please follow the registration link above for contact details or Email the Junior Coordinator for more information about Junior Cricket & Junior Blasters.
Junior Blasters is for kids new to cricket with participants building their skills through fun, game based activities.

Adam Colgan captains the BUCCC under 18C team to a Premiership in the K Noy Shield.
Playing at home, we batted on Day 1 for a hard fought 107 with Alex Stork 34, Travis Harrison 29 & Trent Ryan 15 the main run scorers.
Day 2 started with a slow but steady stream of runs for Burwood to be 4/81 in the 29th over. Chasing 27 runs in 10 overs it seemed BUCCC would be denied victory. Conceding 5 more runs in the 30th.
Jack Beardsley takes 2 wickets in the next and with Adam Colgan are supported by a stunning fielding performance from the team to pile on the pressure for the last 5 overs & 1 ball to take a total of 6 wickets for the loss of only 3 runs to seal a great win that was energetically
celebrated by all.
A great game. Congratulations !!!!

The Committee is pleased to announce the appointment of David Quinlan as our Club Coach for the 2016/17 season.
David joins us from Eltham Cricket Club and brings a wealth of knowledge from his time in the Diamond Valley League.
Please join us in welcoming David to the club.
The Committee would also like to thank Darren Van Koll for his time and efforts as senior coach for the last 2 years. We appreciate all the hard work from Darren and have no doubt your efforts have played a big part in setting the club up for the future.
4th XI – Merrell Shield (D Grade)
Congratulations to Andrew Hillyer for captaining the the 4th XI team to the Merrell Shield (D Grade) Premiership over North Balwyn.
In the “Battle of the Bulls” – a fantastic game was played at Macleay Park. After losing the toss the pace attack of Rohan Schulties (2/31) and Seb Graham (6/63) dominated with the ball. North Balwyn held together under tremendous pressure from the BUCCC players to post a competitive total of 155.
Greg Puls (15) and Pete Graham (15) put forward a painstaking start to the run chase, finishing the first day unbeaten. The careful partnership continued on day 2 when the first wicket finally fell with the total on 33. Phil Quirk (40*) and skipper Andrew Hillyer (58) saw the team over the line in front of a fantastic crowd.
Congratulations and thank you to those players that are retiring or leaving the club. Pete Nicholls completed his final innings for the club after 50 years and over 500 matches. Rohan Schulties will move closer to home in Croydon next season after some fantastic years at the club. Seb Graham is off to the UK for work and will hopefully be back at some stage. Jim Kouryialas also intends to retire – but we’ll believe it when we see it.
A great effort by all the boys. The winning team included…
Andrew Hillyer (c), Greg Puls, Peter Graham, Peter Nicholls, Phil Quirk, Andrew Cullinan, Matthew Patterson, Rohan Schulties, Adam Gelfe, Mitchell McPherson, Seb Graham, Jim Kouryialas (12 man)
