Pirates Get Ready

Summer’s coming and once again we will be hearing the crack of leather on willow as we dust off our whites and head out to represent our town in the local cricket competitions.

The Lennox Head Pirates Cricket Club had a very successful 2017/2018 season and is looking for players to join the club and help us continue to grow our reputation as one of the premier clubs in the local cricket leagues.

Last season, the Lennox Pirates fielded four junior teams: one in the under 16’s, two in the under 14’s and one in the under 12’s. These young Pirates were competitive in all grades, with our U14 Scallywags making it to the semi-finals, our U16’s winning their grand final, and most notably our U12’s winning their competition undefeated! We also introduced our first U11’s squad last season.

Our cricket programs for our youngest cricketers (4-9 years old) also took off this year with over 35 participants. The program was played on a Friday evening at Megan Crescent Oval which attracted a big increase in participants.

Our senior cricketers had a strong season with all 5 teams competing in semi-finals. It was bitter sweet for the 4th grade Bilgerats whom progressed to the grand final but lost in a low scoring game.

Our first grade team that competes in the regionally based LJ Hooker League continues to impress with another solid season, eventually going down to Cudgen. The young side is now looking build on their success in recent years and are very focused on putting in the effort for another strong season. Training for seniors, including first grade, is held Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4.30pm at the Williams Reserve cricket nets.

As the 2018/2019 season will be commencing early October (6th for seniors, 20th for juniors) we will be holding a sign on day on Sept 15th
