In a strong start to the season we posted 7 wins from the 8 games contested.
Special shout out to Chris Powza, who today played his 400th game for the Club. Now that’s getting to rarefied territory.
No one epitomises what a Club man is more than Powza.
Totally selfless, team & club orientated & just a ripping bloke to boot.
… who ruptured his Achilles as he was racing, figuratively speaking, towards home plate in the Div 4 Black game.
Craig said he felt like he had been shot in the calf as he fell to the ground about 10 feet from home plate, but like the great Club man he is, Craig literally crawled the rest of the way to touch home plate & score a run.
And, to make matters worse, Craig’s wife Suse captured the moment on video !!!
While there was plenty of on field stars, there was just as many off field ensuring our opening weekend got off to a flyer.
Big tip of the cap to Cameron Rogers who stepped up to take charge of our Thirds; Artie Pap who managed the Women’s Red team; Claudio Rodriguez who umpired the Div 4 Black game; past president Ross Neilson who umpired the Div 4 Red game; Daniel Page who umpired the Waverley Black Women’s game & ensured all the grounds were spick ‘n’ span; Tony Page who prepared the Main Diamond & cut all the grass on both the Main Diamond & Diamond 2.
Eloise England did a superb job with last night’s dinner as well as helping with Stephanie Evans, Chris Evans, Michelle Flintoff & Jacquie Bright operate the canteen on a crazily busy day.
