April Cricket Cancelled

The Coronavirus continues to cause upheaval and cricket is not immune. In the interests of everyone’s health the JCA has cancelled/postponed all matches in April. We’ll get a May update in a few weeks time. [Anton]

Better Safe than Sorry

Due to concerns over any kind of large gatherings in the coronavirus outbreak we have decided to cancel our T20 friendlies with the Tokyo Rhinos on the 29th March. Hopefully the regular season will still go ahead but we’ve had no news as yet. [Anton]

Welcome back U19 Heroes

The Sharks wish an unseasonably warm welcome home from South Africa to our U19 cohort. Very, very well played you young men. We’ve followed your exploits all the way and are immensely proud of how you’ve played and what you have done for cricket in this country. [Anton]

Sharks in abundance in U19 World Cup Squad

Of the 15 U19 players selected to contest the World Cup in South Africa next year, no less than 9 are Chiba Sharks players, including the Captain, Marcus Thurgate. Well done to all involved especially those who put endless hours into the My-Ys and other youth teams. [Anton]

Doogs picks up Best Bat

Congratulations to 1st XI skipper Dhugal Bedingfield for picking up 2019’s Best Batsman Award at the recent JCA Awards in Tokyo. 419 runs and a 59.7 average is evidence of another outstanding season for the elegant Aussie opener. Same again in 2020 please. [Anton]
