McCullum Cup

Mark Hooper —

With our 1st XI involved in Gillette Cup qualifying, it was up to our Premier Colts team to enter the McCullum Cup this year.

The boys brought the trophy home after 4 big wins against Logan Park, Waitaki Boys', St Kevin's and Taieri College.

Losing only 6 wickets in total across the four games there were some impressive individual performances too. Jack Ussher grabbing a 5-wicket haul against Waitaki Boys', Ashton Hansen with 82 not out against Logan Park, Harry Bezett (tournament top wicket taker) and Alfie Omelvena-Flame picking up 4 wickets each in the St Kevin's game and Charlie Ottrey's classy 91 against Taieri College. Pick of the bunch was Alfie Omelvena-Flame's 219 runs across his three innings, including 135 not out against Waitaki Boys', in a team total of 239.
