The Cammeray Cricket Club Inc. is situated on Sydney’s lower North Shore and has been in existence since 1902.
As always, we welcome new players to the fold, and our broad range of age and experience means that players of varying skill can find a level of cricket with which they feel comfortable to play. This season, we are fielding teams from A to D Grade.
After each day’s play, the players return to the Bridgeview Hotel – our primary sponsor – for a few hard earned drinks. This is where the day’s events are relived and the awarding of the player of the day is done with APLOMB. The Bridgeview Hotel is located on Willoughby Rd, Willoughby.

So the A1’s fresh from the victory against the Herdens last week, trekked out to West Pymble to take on the Pigs on their home ground. Lofberg Oval is fairly short square of the wicket and long boundaries front on. Runs a plenty if you like belting the ball. Continue reading “Cam A1 out belted by the Pigs”
Rugby League’s most celebrated image is that of 1963 Grand Final combatants, Norm Provan and Arthur Summons embracing each other after a tightly fought game. The “Gladiators” as the image is known, shows that despite the contrast of height between the two, typifies Mark Twain’s quote that ‘It’s not the size of the dog in the fight, it’s the size of the fight in the dog’.

Congratulations to El Presidente – Scott Costain for notching up the first century for Cammeray in season 2015/16. Opening the batting for Cammeray against Northbridge, Scott’s 104 along with handy contributions from Cook (61) and Pelgrave (58) and new bloke Kevin Johnson (58no) leaves Cammeray with an impressive score of 6 for 328 dec after 62 overs. Sent in to bat towards the end of the day, Cammeray captured an early wicket to have the opposition set back at 1 for 7 off 10. Play continues next Saturday at Castle Cove, and Cammeray will be looking to capture the remaining 9 wickets for less than 300 runs. Good luck!

Sad news for everyone at Cammeray Cricket – with news of the passing away of a Life Member. Malcolm ‘Max’ Delany passed away on Sunday 9 May.

Nigiri’s played host to Cammeray’s 2014 Annual Presentation Night. Celebrating a great season with all 4 teams finishing in the top 2, culminating in the club picking up the Club Championship, a total of 60 plus Cammerians enjoyed a great night. Continue reading “And the Winners Are….”
This season, the club fielded 4 teams, up from 3 the previous season, and all 4 teams had great seasons. The A’s taking part in the new Northern Cricket Union (NCU); a combination of NSCA and Northern District teams, had a good first up season. Finished the season 2nd, the highest placed NSCA team, and semi-finalist bodes well for the season to come. Cook and Costain in amongst the leading association run scorers, and Stavens and Walters amongst NCU’s highest wicket taker. Continue reading “Club Champions!!”
74 was always going to be a hard total to defend. 74 was not the score Cammeray A Grade had hoped to post in their semi final encounter against a strong batting lineup boasted by Rydalmere.

In a remarkable turn of events, following a mid-week NSCA hearing surrounding player eligibility, Cammeray progressed through to the Grand Final. So packed bags were retrieved, whites that were at the bottom of the to-be-washed this weekend pile were dug out, and thoughts of winter were put on hold for one more weekend. Standing in their way of an unlikely premiership, was West Pymble. The premiership favourite who had dropped only one game all season, that to Cammeray.

The Semi final against Northbridge was always going to be a closely fought encounter. Having the previous game end abruptly, with lightning, light and rain preventing Northbridge from capturing the last 2 wickets required for victory, to play this semi final against the same opposition, a week later to determine who would ultimately go through to the Grand Final, was a great match up.
