As October approaches we say goodbye to Season 2010–2011 and hello to the beginning of Season 2011–2012. A huge congratulations to the Jeeralang
Boolarra Cricket Club on a magnificent effort in both senior grade Grand Finals, however it just wasn’t our day as neither side could manage to bring home the gold. Both teams played their hearts out and put in 110% and all players should be very proud and contented with their efforts on the day as there could only be one winner. It’s a wonderful position to see the Club in, as it proves that we are moving forward and continuing to grow, not only as individuals but as a group as well. Hopefully we can continue this success next year with the aim of taking it one step further.
On the 25th of March the Jeeralang Boolarra Cricket Club held its annual Presentation Night. The purpose of the night was to celebrate and award players and members for their efforts, skills and support shown throughout the past season. The turnout on the night was good with a number of awards being handed out, the biggest of which went to Brendan Wilson who won Club Champion for Season 2010–2011. Congratulations to all players who received an award and I look forward to seeing what this year’s season will bring.
As the new season fast approaches, the club held its Annual General Meeting on the 4th of July. In comparison to previous years, the turnout was fantastic with some new faces making an appearance. Straight away we got down to business and the first task was electing the Board of Directors for the upcoming season. Unfortunately after a wonderful contribution of 5 years plus, we said goodbye to our President and Treasurer in Phil and Julia Allen. These two were commended on their efforts as they not only kept the club alive for the past 5 years, but they were also a pleasure to work with. Both will be sorely missed. However, stepping up in Phil’s place is Gordon Leys as President, who we know will do a wonderful job and we welcome him to the Club with open arms. As at this point in time, the position of Treasurer is still in question.
If you want to a have a good time, get out of the house, relax with a hit of cricket and meet some fantastic people, then you should become a Panther.
