In 2019-20 Randwick Petersham continued their commitment to developing the ‘Next Generation’ of local cricketers in the Eastern Suburbs and Inner West. The summer Masterclasses were made possible due to the great support from our Community Cricket Partner Sydney Airport and AW Green Shield sponsor Brown Wright Stein Lawyers.
Director of Cricket Operations Bill Anderson and Head Coach Greg Small liaised with our friends at Randwick JCC and Marrickville CC to put in place the Randwick Petersham Masterclasses. The first was held in December 2019 at Snape Park and another in January 2020 at Marrickville Oval and Tempe Reserve.
40 Randwick JCC male and female players were privileged to receive expert coaching from Randwick Petersham’s First Grade Captain & NSW / Sydney Thunder batsman Jason Sangha as well as Kent CCC batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond. Club President and former Australian fast bowler Mike Whitney AM also provided a well-received fast bowling masterclass.
At Marrickville Oval and Tempe Reserve 25 talented youngsters from the Inner West showed great commitment and skill, improving all aspects of their game. Again appreciation is extended to Daniel Bell-Drummond for leading this clinic alongside Ireland A batsman Stephen Doheny and First Grade all-rounder Dylan Hunter who honed these young player’s skills in batting, bowling and fielding which was put into practice on the final day in a very competitive match played in the right spirit.
Randwick Petersham wish Randwick JCC and Marrickville CC players and supporters all the best for the remainder of 2019-20.
