Talented Diggers junior ETHAN ATKINSON has been chosen in the north coast under 14,s team to contest the Kookaburra Cup in January.

 

Ethan admitted he was excited to be selected for a squad which represents the regions from the Tweed Heads in the north down to Taree in the South.
 
ETHAN was hoping for selection after impressive performances during selection trials but still wasn’t quite sure he would be named in the team.
 
The Kookaburra Cup is being played in Newcastle from the 13th -16th of January and also playing in a tournament in Tamworth from the 6th-10th of January with the Coffs Harbour Representative team. Ethan is also then playing in the Gold Coast with the North Coast Team from the 20th -23th.
 
Any thoughts that he may get a little tired from cricket after such a busy holiday period, were quickly allayed by his excitement of team selection. He is looking forward to just being able to play cricket all the time.
 
Ethan is chomping at the bit to be given the new ball when the time comes to represent the North Coast team in Newcastle.
 
Ethan states’ ‘I can’t wait to face some good competition and the fast bowlers. I am looking forward to the challenge as well as playing plenty of cricket hoping to take a few wickets on the way.”
 
“Playing in the higher second and third grades in weekend cricket has helped me to achieve my goals and improve my bowling.”
 
Ethan would like to thank all the diggers cricket club for their support.

Today saw the North Coast U14 Rep side comfortably topple Mid North Coast headed by more strong performances from Plantation Diggers Cricket Club Duo Ty Adams and Ethan Atkinson.
 

 
 

Ty Adams once again opened the batting and put in a strong performance before being run out on 41. Ty shared a 78 run partnership with Raman Phoonie of Woolgoolga which set up the victory. Ethan Atkinson chipped in with a handy 12 later on and got the bowling off on the right foot with an economical spell of 1/11.

 

North Coast 9/164 def Mid North Coast 10/134

 

I'm sure there will be plenty more similar results to come from these two rising stars.

 

Well done lads!

Congratulations to two of our up and coming stars Ty Adams and Ethan Atkinson. The duo geared up for the North Coast Cricket Council U14's today against Far North Coast. Although the result was a narrow 7 run loss for the North Coast boys our Diggers stars featured strongly in the fight!

Ethan opened the bowling and captured two wickets in an economical and pacey spell while Ty opened the innings with the bat top scoring and falling just short of his half century LBW for 47. 

 

Congrats guys and keep those results coming!

Plantation Diggers Cricket Club has claimed the Lachlan Dew Memorial Shield for the fourth consecutive season. As temperatures nudged 40 degrees action on the park heated up. Diggers set a moderate total of 150 for Nana Glen to chase and chase they did.

 

Nana Glen lost their last wicket late in the afternoon, just 5 runs shy of the target.

 

It was great to see the trophy, donated in honour of Lachy, who could only be described as one of Coffs Harbour Greatest Ever Cricket Characters, dusted off once more.

 

 

Below the photo you will find an extract from the Diggers Cricket Club History Book which explains the trophy in further detail...

 

 

 

2004/05

 

 

In a tragic event that shook the entire Coffs Harbour cricketing community, Nana Glen and former Diggers player, Lachlan Dew was killed in a car accident on Bucca Road on the 23rd July 2004.

 

At twenty five years of age, the gifted and popular sportsman had so much more to offer the sport he loved and the Nana Glen Cricket Club he helped rebuild.

 

His tragic loss deeply affected everyone who knew him or knew of him. A happy go lucky nature combined with a caring and outgoing, chatty personality, Lachlan was the epitome of the Aussie larrikin, unfazed by difficulties, always there with a witty comment and always ready to pitch in when needed without a second thought.

 

His funeral, at St Peter's Anglican Church, Nana Glen on Thursday 29th July 2004 was attended by hundreds of family, friends and cricketers, all wishing to pay their respects to one of the finest the local game has produced.

 

In dedication to the memory of Lachlan and his contribution to local cricket, the Lachlan Dew Memorial Trophy was contested by 1st Grade sides from Nana Glen and Diggers Ex-Services, the two Clubs both he and his father, Garry had played for.

 

Following the game, Nana Glen Cricket Club President, Len Towells spoke of the loss felt by the Club and Nana Glen as a community in general before inviting Lachlan's parents, Garry and Evelyn Dew to present the trophy to winning Nana Glen captain, Andrew Mainey.

 

Each season since, the two Clubs play for the Lachlan Dew Memorial Trophy each time they meet.

Congratulations to Damon Rootes and Luke Corlis who have just been selected

Another Conquest for the Diggers Duo

in the North Coast Zone U17 cricket team. The pair were the only two players selected from the Coffs Harbour area. The Diggers Cricket Club Duo will travel to Raymond Terrace on October 26th to 28th to contest the NSW Country Championships. Damon and Luke both put in excellent performances over the weekend trials at Coffs Coast Sport & Leisure Park to earn selection. This selection bears added weight due to the fact that both boys are still eligible to play U16′s and therefore will also be considered during the upcoming Bradman Cup trials. Here at Diggers we are sure this selection will be a stepping stone for bigger and better things to come. Damon and Luke are also expected to feature strongly in the Diggers Cricket Club First Eleven to contest the Bill Amos Memorial Shield under the CHDCA competition.

Diggers Cricket Club prides itself on the success of it’s junior program and our up and coming stars  are continually achieving similar results. We currently have a fantastic crop of junior players competing in every division of the CHDJCA Competition plus a healthy In2Cricket program catering for the younger 5-8 age group.

Diggers Cricket Club is currently taking registrations for the upcoming season and details can be found below. Players from ages 5 to open can register at any of the following sessions;

Bray Street Cricket Nets (Next to the PCYC)
Wednesday or Friday afternoons from 4.30pm to 6pm
