Notable story of the day was the clean sweep of Opens with the Second XI and Third XI bringing home exciting and gutsy wins. To go with this the Year 8As fought back to record a great comeback. Well done gents!
Round 8 of First XI GPS cricket was the much anticipated game of the two undefeated teams in 2021, TSS vs Nudgee. TSS lost the toss and were put into bat. Early wickets had TSS 3/13 before a 42 run partnership between Louis Chabert (15) and Tom Gossett (51) got TSS back on track to post a very competitive score. Some mid to late hitting from Justin Faber (21) and Billy Walker (39) got TSS to a very defendable total of 172 in the 50th over. TSS started slowly as the opener from Nudgee attacked anything short. Jack Sinfield came on to bowl and turned the game on its head taking four Nudgee wickets. Jack was well supported from Louis Chabert with three wickets and special mention to Tom Gossett with two great catches in the slips. TSS finally bowled Nudgee out for 139 in the 46th over. Congratulations TSS First XI boys winning against Nudgee. TSS First XI now look forward to playing GT for the premiership.

TSS Cricket will conduct team photographs and recognise individual, team and major award winners within the scheduled training times in the last week of training on Wednesday 24, Thursday 25 March and Friday 26 March. This year we have piloted the Player’s Player award as voted on by the boys for each team this season. So for teams to be able to do their team photograph and then personally recognise the Player’s Player as well as each team members contribution is a process we wish to progress. We also wish to have positive conversations about what each player may consider in moving forward with their cricket in the future.
TSS Prep Years 5/6, Opens Second XI and First XI will have additional arrangements in presenting their Perpetual Trophies as arranged with those teams.
Years 7-12 Presentation of Player’s Player Awards after Training at 5:15pm
