Round 6: The Teams, Nathan Turner’s 100th game and paying respect to Phil Hughes

November 28, 2014 No Comments


It’s been a sad week for cricket, with Phil Hughes tragically passing away yesterday. As a sign of respect, all players are to wear a black arm bands this Saturday and to observe a minute’s silence before the game. As our coach, former Australian Test captain Graham Yallop, told the boys in the club rooms last night, all players must wear a helmet when they bat at training and in the game. We must take every precaution for our safety because as much as we love playing this game, everyone’s well being is paramount.

In happier news, this round marks the 100th game of Nathan “Waddles” Turner. It’s a massive effort and Nathan joins an exclusive (although it’s growing!) list of players who have achieved this feat for Elwood. A former Ray “Stinger” Howard Medallist, a former junior coach, former committee member, played in multiple grand finals, Nathan’s achievements for the club are as impressive as the 8 wickets for 14 runs he took in a game just three weeks ago. Well done, Waddles. Make sure you buy him a beer boys.

And congratulations as well to Andrew Baker who makes his Longmuir debut this round, following his club debut in the Twos last week. Well done, Bakes!

And remember, our $1000 Draw is next Saturday, December 6th. It’s going to be an awesome night, and we are also celebrating a few boys birthdays that night! Don’t miss out! Get your ticket now!

Good luck boys.

Go Woods.
