Year 7 premier
Coach Pete Escott

The Y7 team did have a bit of a tough season, but every player improved their cricket over the summer and will be better players for it.

Thanks to the parents who helped with coaching (Parky & Steve), scoring (Rebecca), umpiring (Ian, Parky, Kenny, Ray and Steve) and to the Y6 players (Harry Carter, Jesse Hohaia, Patrick Faulkner, Spike Ruffell, Travis Gower and Jackson) who regularly filled in for us. – Pete Escott.
