In an amazing start to the new season, 3 club records were smashed in the E Grade match vs Silverton.

Firstly, the team posted a record score of 9/466cc, knocking over the old record of 7/404 set in 2012/13.

Brett Whittingham set a new Club Highest Score when he posted 270, easily passing the old record of 218 set by Justin Randell in the same 2012/13 game.

That wasn't enough for 'Whitts' as he set a new 2nd wicket partnership record of 178 with club stalwart Doug Paroissien, who posted his first century at Berwick Springs with a superb 103.

Doug departed with the score at 2/213, then young gun Josh Sawrey (41) joined Whitts and they added another 97 to completely demoralise the Silverton bowlers.


Coach's Report for Season 2016/17

Firstly a big thank-you to Grant Hillman for giving me the opportunity to coach the Berwick Springs Cricket Club. Season 2016-17 from a coaching perspective was successful without winning flags. Success can be seen in many ways, from my point of view we were able to play in finals with 5 of our 7 senior teams and all three of our U17 teams. Many clubs that we compete against would be enviable of our season.

Local Man Crashes Junior Presentation Night

A local from the nearby under privileged community was seen sneaking into the Junior Presentation Night (impersonating an assistant coach) and swiping uneaten pies straight off the tables. He was possibly collecting them to take back to his accommodation facility.

Later on, he was pictured with our Under 13 Flag draped over his shoulders and by all reports he was enjoying himself just a little too much.

Dean Mason can be seen in the background calling for back-up to remove him, but he escaped with 32 meat pies in hand.

Arul D'Souza snares Hat-Trick

In the final round of Under 17-3, Arul D'Souza virtually assurred the team would progress to the finals with an amazing hat-trick to dismiss Narre South for 56.

All 3 wickets were clean bowled on his way to 4/13 from his 4 overs. The team then knocked off the target in 6 overs, finishing on 0/63, with Matty Van Der Ark smashing 41 not out from about 15 balls. This victory lifted the 17/3's to 3rd spot on the ladder and a semi final against Dandenong West.
