					C.C.N.S.W. MATCH REPORT No 21: PADDINGTON AND COLLAROY
PLATEAU: SATURDAY 13 MARCH - SUNDAY 14 MARCH 2010
GOLF REPORT: C.C.N.S.W. GOLF DAY AT THE COAST ON WEDNESDAY
10 MARCH, 2010: REPORT BY MIKE BIRCHALL

12 people turned up for a 1.00 PM tee off in indifferent weather conditions on one of Sydney’s
most panoramic links golf courses. The combination of rain looking a certainty, a 15 knot gusting
Southerly wind in conjunction with the natural hazards of the course made for a challenging game
of golf which was reflected by the scores at the end of the day. The course professional made
comment that the group were somewhat foolhardy to set forth in the prevailing weather conditions
but the group were not to be put off. At the end of the day it proved to be a gallant decision
because the rain held off and although conditions were very testing and the players just about
had the course to themselves.

C&S ROUND 23 v PADDINGTON C.C. AT CAMPERDOWN PARK,
CAMPERDOWN ON SATURDAY 13 MARCH 2010: REPORT BY ED SMITH


A beautiful day, a great batting track and a strong opposition - the stage was set for a ripper.
Steve lost the toss for the third week in a row and Paddington had no hesitation in batting first.
Without the bowling of Dave Byrnes, Craig Johnson and Greg Brooks, we knew our attack was
going to be tested by this very strong Paddington batting line up. Ed Smith (3 for 49 off 13 overs)
and Dave Stingl (0 for 52 off 7 overs) took the new ball and, when Ed clean bowled their left
handed opener in his 4th over we had them at 1 for 28. Strong batting from their first drop took
the score past 50 in only the tenth over but then Ed struck again through a good catch by Derek
Taylor at cover.

Ian Allmey was brought on for one quick over to allow Derek to switch ends and Derek to come
on from the end with the long leg side boundary. Ian did his job well, only bowling one wide and
being hit for 20 runs off his 6 balls. If this remains his only over for the year, as I suspect now it
might, he will top at least one statistic. Paddington kept sending out good batsmen and Ed and
Derek tried everything to break their partnerships on this beautiful batting track. Ed eventually
                       th
struck again in the 18 over through a low and well juggled catch by Matt Gale at point - his first
catch without keepers’ gloves since his time in the Under 10's (I.e. about 50 years ago).

Derek then took the prize wicket of their big hitting first drop, Andrew, for 42 and the score was 4
for 127 after 21 overs. Another good partnership saw Ed's legs cramp up in only his 13th over but
this cleared the way for Steve to introduce Scott Wells into the attack. A well worked double play
run out from Ed to Scott to the keeper Craig Johnson broke the partnership with the score on 159
with 8 overs to go but they were still looking at a score well in excess of 200.

They didn't factor in the Springwood connection, however, and, in the absence of his fellow
Mountain man David Byrnes, Scott assumed the role of bunny hunter. With two excellent caught
and bowlers, a good stumping by Craig Johnson, a now customary catch by Ruaan Jonker and a
well held catch by new guy, Peter Crooks, Scott wrapped up the last wickets over the next 6
overs for only 40 more runs - the last three wickets for just 1 run! Scott’s amazing figures of 5 for
13 off 3.4 overs saw Paddington all out for 199. Still, we had not successfully chased a score of
200 or more in recent memory so we new the size of the task ahead. This task was made even
greater when Ian Allmey was out for a golden duck in the second over - thus completing a
memorable and expensive game for our likeable run machine. With Tom Robertson's bacon and
cheese sandwiches in our stomachs, we were not deterred - although losing Tom for 3 (12 balls)
in our fifth over certainly was less than encouraging.

Enter the Captain and Vice-captain and stand back. Steve Taylor (37 off 54) batted superbly to
get us out of the bind and set up the team’s attack on this unlikely summit. Given lbw by Tom (in
a career limiting moment) with the score on 86, Ruaan Jonker (10 off 24) joined Craig Johnson
for 31 runs, and Derek Taylor (12 off 14) combined with the mercurial Johnson for a further 31
runs. Needing 54 runs off 48 balls with 5 wickets left the stage was set - and then set on fire by
Scott Wells who continued his man of the match performance smashing 23 runs off just 14 balls.
Having done the hard work, Scotty was bowled going for glory with 3 runs needed off 14 balls.
Dave Stingl joined Craig with his score on 98. Craig foolishly took a single and allowed a bowler
(Stingl) to determine whether he was going to just get a single and allow him the glory of bringing
up the winning run and his maiden ton for the season. Dave didn't have to even think about it - he
smashed six over mid wicket and stranded the South African glamour boy on 99*. Both players
were fined!

We'd won! We'd chased 200 and got it with 8 balls and four wickets in hand. Overall, 67 overs
were bowled in the day, 16 wickets fell and 403 runs were scored. Paddington joined us for a few

MASTERS ROUND 11 v COLLAROY PLATEAU at CAMPERDOWN PARK,
CAMPERDOWN ON SUNDAY 14 MARCH 2010;

No report has been supplied. (Ed note: - The Collaroy Plateau Captain suggested that given the perhaps
surprising result, maybe that it was on purpose!)

I understand from Mike Birchall who was invited to make up numbers arising from a late
withdrawal on the Sunday morning that our batting collapse was precipitated by an unfortunate
run out of one of our opening bats Paul Allen.

The Collaroy Plateau captain has kindly provided the following batting and bowling statistics: -
C. Somers - 0; P. Allen - 14; G. Rosewall - 18; M. McCormick - 3; D. Jones -10; A. Martin -1; K.
Elloy - 0; D. Richards - 0, G. Buck - 13; J. Patel - 12; and M. Birchall - 3

The Team was: Craig Somers, Paul Allen, Glenn Rosewall (w), Mick McCormick (c); David
Jones, Angus Martin, Keith Elloy, Dale Richards, Graham Buck, Jay Patel and Mike Birchall

The result was:

C.C.N.S.W.: -. 10-78

Lost to

Collaroy Plateau C.C.: – 1-80

The bowling was: G. Buck10-3-27-1; D. Richards 9-1-27-0; J. Patel 3-0-9-0; M. McCormick 3-0-
