Xmas Info Download

Hi Guys - it's the last info download for the year! Merry Xmas. Ho ho ho.

You should all have received an e-mail confirming your subs for the season. Don't forget, if you don't pay by Xmas they go up by $30. So do it NOW! You can pay electronically, or give the cash to any one of the Board. Mark Donnelly, Campbell Vette, Mark Commins, Reg Prasad or Andrew Stirling. If you have any questions then please get in touch.

The bank account details are as follows:
Payee name: Hamilton Star Cricket Club
Payee account number: 01-0315-0090848-00 
Bank : ANZ.

As you should know by now we will be running the scoreboard at Seddon Park for three internationals against the Pakistanis plus a T20 between the Whiteferns and the Aussie Women
  • 28th December -  2 x International T20 D/N
  • 7th-11th January Test Match
  • 3rd February International One Day Match D/N
We have OK numbers for the T20 and the test match, but we could use a couple more. Please get in touch at

National Cricket Club Super Camp (Flash as)

On the 5th of January (12-8pm) Star Varsity will be running a National Cricket Club Super Camp at the Waikato University, in conjunction with the National Bank.

This is an awesome chance for you to meet some Black Caps, receive a bit of coaching/training and have a bit of fun coaching kids.

This is also a nice money-spinner for the club - and that money goes to buy us cool stuff (like flash nets). 

So really why wouldn't you do it? Get in touch with Andrew Stirling to reserve your place now.

Nasty fasties! Shane Bond will be running the bowling session.

There's been a few issues with security at Galloway and Jansen Park recently, with items disappearing from the sheds. All players are reminded to use common sense security measures.
  • Don't leave bags open or leave valuables where they can be seen or easily accessed.
  • Teams should attempt to have their scorer sit next to the locker rooms.
  • If you find someone in the locker rooms who you don't know and doesn't have a good reason to be there then challenge them and ask them to leave.
  • If you need to go into someone else's changing room for whatever reason, tell someone you're going and/or take someone with you.
Pads for Sale.
Rishi Chada has a pair of SG pads which he wants to sell for $70,  and he will throw in a SG kit bag for FREE. 

He will bring the pads to practice on Tuesday for anyone who wishes to have a look at them. The pads are near Brand NEW and he has only used them once at the practice once only. - So these are not the lead lined pads that Rish uses on Saturdays. (6 run outs in 9 innings!)  You can contact him at  or 0211638079.

Cheers all.
