Series 5 of Outstanding Performances is headed by our First Grade skipper Jason Sangha and also includes a second shout out to Kent CCC gun Daniel Bell-Drummond as well as celebrating the milestones of two of Randwick Petersham’s favourite sons – Adam Semple and Anthony Sams. Not to be outdone 2 youngsters Will Deller and Freddy Whalebone round out this series with strong batting performances.

Outstanding Performance 24: First Grade’s skipper and NSW batsman Jason Sangha was the backbone of the innings as a mammoth 7/430 dec was amassed at Howell Oval on Day 1. In just over 4 hours Sang scored 138 from 203 balls including 17 boundaries and 3 over the rope. He was ably supported by Daniel Bell-Drummond 93 (and a partnership of 122 for the 3rd wicket) and Riley Ayre’s 73*. The bowlers then finished the job dismissing the Panthers for 385.
Outstanding Performance 25: On the Edge of Greatness
It was a special moment when 1st Grade wicket-keeper Anthony Sams snapped up a catch off Hawkesbury’s Jaskaran Cheema from his brother Daniel’s bowling at Owen Earle Oval on 7 March 2020. That nick gave Anthony his 363rd dismissal in 1st Grade for Randwick Petersham. It was special because it equalled the record of Andrew Millican, the greatest wicket-taker behind the stumps in the history of the club’s four founding clubs – Petersham, Randwick, Marrickville and Petersham-Marrickville.
Over a 15 year period from 1983 to 1998, Randwick’s 1st Grade wicket-keeper Andrew Millican caught 315 opposing batsmen and stumped 48 for a total of 363 dismissals in 200 matches. In a 10 year period from 2010 to 2020, Anthony Sams caught 330 and stumped 33 for an identical total in 214 matches. One more dismissal next season will give Anthony a new and historic record covering a period of 120 years of cricket for Randwick Petersham and its founding clubs.
Outstanding Performance 26: The Record Breaker
In 2017-18 Adam Semple broke the 5000 run and 250 wicket mark in First Grade. In 2019-20 Sempie performed strongly with bat and ball overtaking Usman Khawaja to sit second on the Club’s run scoring list with 5797 and also took his 352nd wicket. He also surpassed David Bourke to become the most capped player in the Randy Petes 19 seasons with 273 caps.
Everyone at Randwick Petersham congratulates Sempie on a wonderful season and look forward to a strong season in our 20th year.
Outstanding Performance 27: At Joe McAleer Kent CCC batsman Daniel Bell-Drummond led from the front as First Grade compiled 6dec/407 on Day 1. Entering at 1-46 DBD’s innings lasted exactly 4 hours and160 balls being dismissed for 131 including 19 boundaries. It was his second ton for the Randy Petes following a 100 on debut the previous season. Furthermore, his 131 capped off a record-breaking run in his previous 5 innings where he wasn’t dismissed for less than 50 on each occasion – 93, 67, 93, 52 & 75. This was the first time a batsman had scored 6 consecutive half-centuries in NSW Premier Cricket since Rodney Davison in Oct/Nov 1999.
Outstanding Performance 28: Promising Green Shielder Will Deller showed maturity beyond his years as the backbone as Metro Green chased @blacktownmounties total of 178. Entering at 5-102 ‘Little Dell’ combined smart running and powerful drives to remain unbeaten on 67 as the target was rundown in 47.2 overs.
Outstanding Performance 29: On an unseasonably cool day at Whalan Freddy Whalebone claimed 2-21. The following Saturday he returned and entered the fray at 6-182. He then knuckled down scoring 43 and was dismissed only 11 runs short of the target in what would have been a resounding victory away from home.
