Giving Back to Our Community – Junior Masterclasses 2019-20

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.


Canterbury Wests Juniors – Coaching Update

Sincere THANKS from all the players and parents for the work David Skuthorpe and Nathan Stares have done as coaches of the Canterbury Wests Rep teams for the past 4 years.

David & Nathan coached the most consistent and successful CWSCA team in recent history.

They came in U12’s and coached them in U13’s, U14’s and U15s (which just finished).  We made the finals in U12’s, U13’s and U14’s and only missed out on run-rate this season in U15’s.

Over 4 years the team won more than 80% of their games!

I had the privilege of being Manager of the Rep team all the way from U10’s to u15’s – so I saw Skewey and Nathan at work.

Every player and their families are grateful to David & Nathan, and to RPCC.

What a great update and well done to Skewies and Staresy Junior on their great work over a long period of time.  It’s this kind of long term commitment to juniors and specifically players and teams that builds a strong future for the Randy Petes club.

All in the club are looking forward to many of these Juniors representing RPC in Green Shield U16, Premier Cricket and Poidevin Gray Shield U21 competitions in the coming years!  

Some of the players to have learnt the ropes off Skewies and Staresy are Emmanuel Grogan, James Apostolakis, Josh Lau, Jude Price, Reuben Sachs and Louis Wilson.
