At the conclusion of the 2015-16 season last Saturday night, Chris Singh announced that after 22 years of Sydney Grade Cricket he had decided to hang up his boots. As a player who had an outstanding career in the lower grades he will be cheered for his achievements but sorely missed in the seasons ahead.
The Randwick Petersham Cricket Club are appreciative of Adina Apartment Hotel Coogee for supporting Jason Sangha and his mum Sylvia throughout this season. Club President Mike Whitney and Jason Sangha presented Manager Rob McKenna with a signed jersey to say thank you for Adina's support.
The RPC Management Committee are very pleased to announce that Karl Schubert has accepted the position of Club Captain for the 2015/16 Season.
Karl has played at Randy Petes for the past ten years and during that time has won a 5th Grade competition in 2007/08 and won The David Sherwood Memorial Award for Most Wicketkeeping Dismissals in 2013-14. Karl has shown leadership qualities during this time and is involved with the club off the fields as Social Coordinator.
At last night's 14th Randwick Petersham Cricket Annual General Meeting, Mike Whitney was re-elected President for a 15th term which makes him the third longest serving of the 72 presidents of Randwick Petersham and its founding clubs throughout its 253 playing years. Mike has only Petersham-Marrickville's Jack Ross (20 years) and Petersham/ Petersham-Marrickville's Sydney Bain (19 years) ahead of him. Unfortunately due to a family matter Mike was unable to attend and in his place, CEO David Holland chaired the meeting.
Randwick Petersham will be hosting arch rivals Eastern Suburbs at Coogee Oval tomorrow night as they seek to progress to the Finals Day
Preview Round 3 v Penrith
A big round coming up against Penrith who have so far won nine of their 10 matches with only their 4th Grade losing one. They are on a high and we will need to be up to the mark to take them down a notch. Of 66 matches we have played them in all five grades since 2001-02, we have won 34, lost 23 with nine drawn. Not a bad record but not overwhelming.
