As the cricket seasons nears its end…

It’s been a learning curve for our boys playing under 9 this year.  With only one practice behind them they took on a far superior St Charles College team, emerging as victorious, even though St Charles sent them packing – victorious because it was their first major match in the senior phase…

We’re very proud of Aiden, who has improved in leaps and bounds this year, and now eats, sleeps and breathes cricket.  I have uploaded match photos to Dropbox, if any parent of any of the players would like the link, please drop me a line.  The entire album can be downloaded.

Going through photos yesterday, I have chosen one or two that for me speak more than words… starting with my absolute favorite, Aiden yesterday against Clifton.  He went in knowing he was going to try and smash every ball coming his way, and he tried.  First ball he failed.  After a couple of runs, he connected properly smashing it into the air, looking good for a boundary – but Clifton’s exceptional fielding was no match for us during this match.  He was caught out.

This picture says it all – I remember seeing once years back very similar of Steve Waugh from Australia..

Aiden after being caught out, good ball, good hit into the air - alas magnificent fielding brought his short innings to an abrupt end....

Truly a great photo I think, capturing the expression of disbelief… great photos Craig Fry 🙂
