Senior Cricket

There are two top teams who play Premier and Premier Reserve cricket and their season is a mix of one and two-day cricket.

Other teams in the lower grades also play a mix of one and two-day cricket. In the 2015-16 season we have the B1s, B3s and C1s doing this.

There are also teams who just play one-day cricket. In the 2015-2016 season we have the 4As, 4Bs, 3As and 3Bs doing this.

On top of that there is T20 played on Saturdays, Sundays and the Last Man Stands comp is played at BCCC on Thursday nights.  No teams have entered the Auckland cricket T20 comp being played before Xmas but if you would like to enter a team for after Xmas (when the weather is better!) please let Damian Hagoort know. Sunday afternoon T20 has been very popular at the club in the past – short, sweet and the family can come along and watch.

If you are interested in playing men’s or women’s senior cricket contact senior convenor Damian Hagoort on 021 065 6460 or email office@birkenheadcricket.co.nz.

Premiers

In 2015-16 the Premier side was in a rebuilding phase after a number of senior players retired after a very successful 2014-2015 season. That season saw the Premier men’s side finished third in the Hedley Howarth Trophy two-day competition, its highest position in decades.

But with a very young side on the field for 2015-2016, it was always going to be tough and the BCCC Premiers finished outside the top eight meaning they will play 2016-2017 in the minor championship competing for the Tom Hellaby trophy they won in 2014.

The 2016-17 Premier squad will be coached by Akash Christian.  More details about the team, its captain and playing schedule will be posted later in 2016.

If you are interested in trialling for the team in 2016-17 please contact senior convenor Damian Hagoort on 021 065 6460 or Akash Christian on 022 394 9579 or email office@birkenheadcricket.co.nz
