Cricket season under way

THE Southern Cricket Association's 2014/15 season is under way this weekend and it looks like being an interesting season. Some players have moved on and others have arrived and four of the seven Derwent Valley teams have changed to a different grade from last season.

BUSHY PARK CRICKET CLUB has moved from Second Grade to Third and will again be captained by Troy Smith. They will be much more competitive this season with the inclusion of new player Shaun Grant and the return of Shaun Fenton who will join is former team mates in December. Bushy hasn't lost any players and rumour has it Jarrod Oates maybe having a hit with them. All in all, it looks a positive season ahead for Bushy Park.

NEW NORFOLK CRICKET CLUB has been through a time of change. David Maddox has been appointed coach and after winning the Second Grade premiership last season, the side has been elevated to First Grade and will again be captained by Rohan Heron. Its a big step, but with Stewart Rice still in the team anything is possible. New Norfolk II has also moved up, slotting into Fourth Grade and again captained by Stephen Nichols. The club has a number of top new players. Kendall Bluett from Campania will be a handy pick up, while pair Aaron Drew and Trent Smith have arrived from St Aidens. Leigh Andrews from North Huon also looks to be a handy player.
