Cricket clubs geared up for new season

Molesworth’s Tyson Gray and Craig Coppleman

WITH the Southern Cricket Association’s 2012-13 roster now under way, all Derwent Valley clubs are ready for what is shaping up to be an interesting season. Bushy Park were runners up to Sandford in fourth grade last season and will be looking to go one better this season. Led by captain Shaun Fenton, Bushy Park has picked up Nathan Grant from Risdon Vale, joining his brothers Dylan and Trent. Danny Mason is another new player at the club and will be looking to impress.

Gretna I and II are yet to make the finals since joining the SCA and both teams will be looking to change this. Gretna I is again captained by Ben Rainbird while Todd Jarvis is having his second turn as captain of Gretna II. The club has lost a number of players interstate due to work commitments, but with the inclusions of Jordan Hayden from New Norfolk, Sam Kirkwood from North Hobart and Damien Hack coming out of retirement these guys will certainly cover the losses, including Tim Lowe’s retirement.

Molesworth Cricket Club is now coached by Craig Coppleman and will be looking to go one better after losing to Sorell in the grand final last season. The club has lost last season’s captain Mark Reggett who has moved interstate and Dean King due to work commitments. On the up side they have regained former player Sean Hay and also an injection of youth in Tyson Gray, Cody Neads and Charlie Stewart.

New Norfolk will be coached by club stalwart Adrian Eiszele this season. New Norfolk I will be captained by Glen Williams. The team made the finals last season and just missed out on a grand final berth, losing to Moleswoth I in the preliminary final. New Norfolk II will be captained by returning player Stephen Nichols. The Red Caps have added 14 new players to their list with David Maddox, Josh Dykes, Jake Wessing, Jon Murray, Trent Mayne, Jye County and Leigh Lewis to name a few. Jordan Hastie has gone to Gretna while John Richards isn’t playing.
