The match-up of the competition favourites Coolavin led by Kelly Rowlings took on the Trinity team led by captain Tom Croker saw Coolavin keep their consistent undefeated form for the Final being victorious in the final for 2016.

Coolavin sealed the victory with some brilliant bowling from Tristan Klower 5 for 13, Zac Croker 3 for 8 and Dane Klower 2 for 13 to give their team a strong win.

In the batting for Trinity Josh Patterson and Eric Brown set up a strong platform for their team with an opening stand of 40 until the first wicket fell. Josh batted brilliantly in his best form of the year until losing his wicket for 30. Tom Croker, Max Flack and Will Branson looked good early in the innings until being caught in the outfield. Unfortunately for Trinity a middle order batting collapse was to follow brought on by some good Coolavin bowling.

Coolavin showed why they were the team to beat with a good start by openers Sam Woodberry 27 and Jack Goodwin 26 to put their team in the box seat. Tristan Klower batted well again remaining 25 not out whilst Kelly Rowlings 9 , Harry Coughlan 10, Ryan Dodson 5, Dale Cole 4 and  Jacob McGregor a valuable innings of 15 supported Tristan to close out the game. Jared Yeadon bowled a good line late in the game to assist this while Zac McGregor looked in good touch with the bat till being run-out early in the innings.

In the Trinity bowling Lachlan Minehan picked up an important wicket with a great catch to Josh Hannan while Max Flack bowled superbly for his two wickets. Josh and Jake Paterson once again bowled brilliantly to pick up two wickets each. Tom Croker picked up two great outfield catches with Will Branson also picking up a vital catch in the context of the game. 

In the bowling and fielding for Trinity Danyon Bush, Liam Mullins, Tommy Bell, Lochlan Hopkins and Angus Fife backed up their team by bowling a consistent line when needed and also putting their body on the line in the field. It was a fitting tribute to have a guard of honour to retiring umpire Kevin Hogg for his wonderful service to cricket.

Thanks again to all of the  under 16 teams  for a memorable season of cricket and of course the volunteer officials and committee who give up their time every week to make sure this is possible!

The game of the year which would rival any Big Bash game with cricket being the winner.! Trinity won outright 2nd innings while Wollondilly took out first innings.

Trinity Catholic College 86 defeated Crookwell 50

The much anticipated clash lived up to its expectations with a hard fought win to the Trinity boys in a reduced overs game. The game was exciting to the very end! The biggest highlight came when both teams formed a guard of honour for umpire Kevin Hogg for his wonderful service to cricket over the many.many years. The Trinity boys batted on a damp pitch with openers Eric Brown and Josh Patterson patiently batting out 12 overs without loss. Josh went on to score a vital 23 runs. Runs were hard to come by with the other top scorers including Liam Mullins a well fought 12 runs till being run-out and Tom Croker 12 12 off 5 balls to get the run-rate ticking over. Will Branson and Danyon Bush belted a classy four each to add to the runs while Tommy played a beaut straight drive to keep the runs coming while Josh Hannan proved his reliability to remain not-out for the innings .

The real highlight for Trinity was in their bowling especially with an unbelievable spell of bowling from opening bowler Josh Paterson who had figures of 4 for 7. Jake Paterson was just as impressive with his 3 for 7 as he has developed unplayable balls. The big shaker in the competition Will Branson again bowled impressive with his 2 for 7. Danyon Bush and Lochlan Hopkins bowled a consistent line and length to support their team-mates in a great day of bowling. The most important catch of the game went to Lachlan Minehan who took a screamer a metre in from the boundary rope. Liam Mullins also took a great catch with part-time keeper Jake Paterson who kept the gloves warm for Tom by taking a great catch to give Tom his wicket. As usual Tommy Bell was pumped in the field sliding around to keep the runs to a minimum while Angus Fife chased hard to cut the runs down. Max Flack was instrumental in preventing balls from heading to the boundary.

The Trinity boys will plan to meet the undefeated Coolavin team in what will be a wonderful grand-final.

We again thank officials Mack, Billy John and Carolyn who make exciting cricket possible!

U16 Trinity Catholic College 7 for 89   defeat Wollondilly 9 for 87

In a thirty over limited game at Seiffert that had a Big Bash feel about it with the extreme heat factor creeping in to make playing conditions difficult, the crowd certainly got value for money with entertaining cricket on display. With the Trinity boys having four players unavailable it was going to be tough but the results indicated both teams turned up for the final game of 2015.  Trinity opening bowlers Josh Paterson and Danyon Bush once again started strong with Danyon bowling out the in-form opener Josh Wearne for 11. Josh took an important wicket of Nick Turner who put on an impressive innings for Wollondilly scoring 24 but was caught brilliantly in the outfield by Tom Croker. Max Flack bowled an impressive line to get a well earnt wicket as did Lachlan Minhan and Tom Croker picking up a wicket each. Will Branson was hard to score against as he picked up two wickets in his 2 overs. Jake Paterson impressed spectators with his 2 wickets in his 3 overs. Eric Brown and Tommy Bell supported their Trinity bowlers well with some great bowling to tie down the opposition.  Will Branson and Jake Paterson were impressive in taking a superb catch each.

 In the Wollondilly batting the other runs were from the patient Lachie Yeadon 8, Lewis Golding a quick 9, Angus Elder a quick 7, Dean Whitelaw a patient not out for 6, Isaac Hogan 6.

The Trinity boys knew on a good bowling wicket they had to bat extremely well to get the runs. Openers Will Branson and Eric Brown did their best in difficult conditions against good bowling from Nick Turner who finished on 2 for 19. Will couldn’t fend off a difficult bouncer that took his wicket while Eric playing nice shots for his patient 4. We welcomed back Josh Hannan from injury and he impressed everyone considering his time away with a superb 11. Once again Captain Tom Croker played the most memorable innings of the game with his quick-fired BBL style innings of 41 hitting two sixers in one over and an impressive strike rate with his 5 fours in the innings! With the Trinity boys at 6 for 68 the game looked like it was going down to the wire but another stellar innings from Jake Paterson of 13 not out and Danyon Bush 6, a vital partnership of 17 and Tommy Bell later playing brilliant defensive strokes saved Liam from padding up to bat one handed!The other tidy bowlers for Wollondilly were Ben Brown 2 wickets for 13, Lewis Golding 2 for 10, Angus Elder 1 for 12 and Lachlan Yeadon hard to put away bowling his reliable line to allow a maiden over. Ethan Simon, Isaac Hogan and Jonty Hunt took important catches to keep their team in the game.  Congratulations to both teams and well done to Trinity in their hard fought win in the 21st over. Man of match honours go to Danny who umpired for the entire game in the heat of the day as we thank him as well as Carolyn, Adam, Mac and John the other officials on the day.
