With the outbreak of COVID-19 the NSW Premier Cricket Annual Awards night was unfortunately cancelled. Over the past week the award winners were announced for both the Men’s and Women’s Premier Cricket competitions in 2019-20. The Randy Petes are honoured that three of our members were recognised for their achievements this season.
Randwick Petersham extend their congratulations to all Premier Cricket Club and Individual Award winners.
The Bill O’Reilly Medal was first awarded in 1967-68 and recognises the First Grade competitions Best and Fairest player. In that time there have been dual medallists on only 5 occasions. In 2019-20 it was a 4-way tie with Randwick Petersham’s opening batsmen Will Affleck joining Scott Rodgie (Northern District), Nivethan Radhakrishnan (Hawkesbury) and Hayden Kerr (Sydney Uni) on 13 points apiece. A former Randwick Petersham Green Shield representative, Affleck returned to the Randy Petes this season and cemented his spot at the top of the order with 766 runs at 47.90.

Kate Barry is one of the leading batters in the Women’s Premier First Grade competition with Parramatta at only 19 years of age. She debuted for the Randy Petes at Snape Park on the 29th February v Penrith in last round of this season’s Metropolitan Cup. After a solid performance in the field, Kate fronted up against the most formidable attack in the competition without any nerves or pretensions. While the runs didn’t come in this game, she certainly looked the part and is now the second woman to play for Randwick Petersham.
