Vintage Back to Back Premiers

The CCNSW Vintage (Over 60s) team has successfully defended the championship they won for the first time last year. It was a hard fought competition with four teams tied on 8 wins with only a handful of bonus points separating us from the pack.

CCNSW Vintage Squad – 2023/24 Premiers
Back row L-R: David Glen, Joe Scarcella, Paul Georgiadis, Ajoy Roy, Greg Brooks, Garry James, Stuart Ridge (c), Mick McCormick, Gerry O’Shea, Emmanuel Mouglalis
Front Row L-R: Sittampalam Ragavan, John Finucane, Frank Baliotis, Peter Rolls, Daniel Pellen

It is interesting to note that this picture was taken at our first game of the season and this group went on to cover all games except for only 2 individual fill-in performances – a great effort.

CCNSW at the Over 60s World Cup

CCNSW was well represented at the recent Over 60s World Cup in Chennai, with Stu Ridge and Bill Blair in the Australian Over 60s side and Sittampalam Ragavan in the Sri Lankan team.

Australia beat England in the final to take out the championship and Sri Lanka finished 4th in the 12 team tournament.

Bill Blair was selected in the team of the tournament.

Details of the tournament including links to scores and match videos can be found on the International Masters Cricket site.

The Australian Team Facebook group also has a ton of photos, match reports and other posts documenting what was an amazing experience for all.

Australian Cricket Society

There has been a long standing informal link beteen the ACS and CCNSW. Some CCNSW members are also members of the ACS and all CCNSW members are always welcome to come to the ACS  talks with former cricketers and commentators. If any CCNSW member is interested in further details, see link.

The Cricketers’ Club of New South Wales (www.ccnsw.com) plays on excellent turf wickets with full covers at the attractive tree lined ground at Camperdown Oval with a village green atmosphere just off Parramatta Road in Mallet Street. The ground has full facilities including covers, sightscreens, a supersopper, and a new pavilion, which includes an air conditioned canteen, change rooms and showers. Adjoining the ground on one side is a café and on the other side a licensed restaurant called “Camperdown Greens”

C.C.N.S.W. needs to recruit new players for all its teams, particularly younger players in their twenties and thirties for its City and Suburban side.

For those who no longer have the time to play Grade or Shires or attend regular midweek practice, it offers: – some Saturday and some Sunday all-age afternoon cricket in the City and Suburban Competition; Sunday over 40s and over 50s and over 60s cricket in the Sydney Masters Competitions; Sunday, midweek social games and a midweek LMS eight a side T20 competition on Wednesday evenings in the summer and on Sunday mornings in the winter; plus generally at least one winter tour each year. Refer to the ‘Teams’ and ‘Tour page for details

Last season two players, Brett James and Stuart Ridge were selected respectively for the Australian over 50s and over 60s teams and our over 60s won their league.
