Hannah Trollip to play in New Zealand

Hannah Trollip to play in New Zealand

Lend Lease Breakers squad member, Hannah Trollip, will continue her cricketing education over this December and January in New Zealand after being invited to represent the Northern Spirit in the women’s domestic 50 over and Twenty20 competitions.

This is the 18-year-old’s first season as a full time member of the Lend Lease Breakers squad. She made her Women’s National Cricket League debut last January against South Australia in Adelaide, called up from the NSW U/18 team to fill a void left by the absence of seven Australian players.

The Gordon captain has also been the standout batter in Sydney First Grade, finishing as the competition’s leading run scorer in both the 2009/10 and 2010/11 summers, and earning the First Grade Player of the Year award on both occasions.

Trollip, who only finished her HSC last week, said she was looking forward to the challenge of representing the Spirit and developing her game over the next two months while playing against top opposition, including members of the New Zealand women’s team, the White Ferns.

“New Zealand is one of the top four nations in the world for women’s cricket and they have some outstanding players in their domestic competition. I am really looking forward to getting over there and taking my chance to play regularly at an interstate level, then bringing back what I learn to help me break into the Lend Lease Breakers team back home,” she said.

Lend Lease Breakers Head Coach, Neil McDonald, said the chance to play in the New Zealand domestic competition would be a wonderful test for Trollip’s skills.

“Hannah’s record in Grade cricket speaks volumes for the amount of talent she has as a player. Playing for the Northern Spirit is going to be a test, but one she is certainly ready for. I am confident she will come back an even better player and the opportunity to play against International players in New Zealand will hold her in good stead as she pushes for the place in the Lend Lease Breakers starting line-up,” she said.

Trollip will travel to New Zealand at the end of this month to link up with the Northern Spirit, which represents Northern Districts in the women’s domestic competition. The competition runs from December through to January, however, she will still be eligible for selection in the Lend Lease Breakers should she be required.

Bash for Cash 6th March

Bash for Cash!bashforcash

We've had Pink Stumps Day, now it is time for the Bash for Cash!
This Sunday, 1st grade is heading down to Raby for a crucial clash with Sydney- with a spot in the semi-final up for grabs.
The day will start with 3 t20 matches starting at 11am- Gordon has the bye.
Come 3pm, at Raby #2, Gordon will be taking on Sydney; with both teams rolling out full strength teams in what promises to be an entertaining and exciting encounter.

Players will be wearing pink, there will be some development activities throughout the day conducted by cricketnsw staff and there will undoubtedly be fun atmosphere with cash up for grabs.
The boundaries will be brought in- to 50m (shortest allowed by SCA rules), with every 4 netting the club $20, and every six bringing in a cool $50.

So get down to Raby to support the Gordon 1st grade girls in the season defining clash at 3pm. If you can't make the trek to Campbelltown, be sure to get to Sydney University (Oval #2) to see 2nd grade in action for two t20 matches starting at 11.
3rd grade take on Northern District at Forsyth, and Brewers play Sydney at Killara.

It is a massive weekend for the club, and one of the last chances this season to see the girls in action, and it would be great to have some support on the sideline.

Go the Reds!
