Week 6 - Saturday 25 November


Year 8/9 Pulteney defeated Pedare

Pulteney 4/164  (Spencer Atterton 53 retired, Tom Lawrence-Doyle 19 retired, Sam Milewski 19 retired, Felix Jones 18, James Taylor 15 retired) 


Pedare  5/84  (Sam Beahan 2/10) 

The Invincibles completed an undefeated year with their 13th successive victory.  We reduced Pedare to 84 runs from their allotted 24 overs due to good bowling, notably from Sam Milewski, Tom Lawrence-Doyle, Sam Beahan, Henry Bradley and Brooklyn Selway. A fielding highlight was the direct hit run out from Jack O’Connor. Spencer Atterton completed his second successive undefeated half century (including four sixes) off just 12 overs. He received good support from James Taylor to assure us off victory. Tom Lawrence-Doyle showed his batting power, smashing four boundaries (including a six) in a rare batting opportunity. 

Leading batting aggregates for the year were Felix Jones (339 runs, average 42), James Taylor (253 runs, average 42), Spencer Atterton (200 runs, average 67), Sam Milewski (187 runs, average 37) and Zac Gillard (100 runs, average 14) and Henry Bradley (68 runs, average 14). Leading bowling wicket takers were Sam Milewski (15 wickets, average 5), Tom Lawrence-Doyle (11 wickets, average 6), Hudson Loftes (11 wickets, average 10), Sam Beahan (9 wickets, average 11), Aidan Rowett (8 wickets, average 8), Pat Winter (5 wickets, average 3), Henry Bradley (5 wickets, average 12), Jack O’Connor (5 wickets, average 26) and Brooklyn Selway (4 wickets (average 18). Satya Shawgi was a valuable addition this term as a high quality allrounder, Max Cavender developed this term as a high order batsman, and Zac Haarsma improved as an off-spin bowler. Felix Jones was an outstanding wicketkeeper and set the standard for our high quality fielding. James Taylor, Spencer Atterton and Felix Jones formed a superb leadership team. 

The boys improved appreciably during the year, both individually and collectively as a team. They were outstanding ambassadors for Pulteney due to their exemplary demeanour and sportsmanship, and an absolute pleasure to coach for Matt van der Sommen, Seb Barrie and myself. Special thanks to the parents for their great support, especially Mr.O’Connor for his meticulous scoring each Saturday. 

Congratulations boys!

John Taylor, Coach


T20 - Friday 10 November

Week 4 - Saturday 11 November

1st XI defeated Christian Brothers

PGS 6 – 187 (Rundle 49, Knights 30, Strawbridge 21, Milewski 18, Craddock 13) defeated CBC 9 – 183 (Bleby-Williams 4/14, Craddock 2/21, Beahan2/35) 

Pulteney’s 1st X1 Cricketers had a thrilling win when birthday boy Charlie Rowe hit the boundary on the final ball of the match. Henry Bleby-Williams (4/14) bowled full and straight in his first game since returning from his German exchange, ably supported by Will Craddock (2/21) & Matthew Beahan (2/35) to dismiss CBC for 183. The Pulteney run chase was anchored by the solid foundations set by Will Craddock (13) & Jack Strawbridge (21), and advanced by senior players Ed Knights (30) and Tom Rundle (49), a true captains innings. Nice to see some rewards for our persistence & grit!

Year 8/9 - Pulteney defeated Nazareth

Pulteney 2/159  (Spencer Atterton 69 retired, Felix Jones 44 not out, James Taylor 18) defeated Nazareth 9/86  (Spencer Atterton 3/9, Brooklyn Selway 2/11, Jack O’Connor 2/20) 

We responded positively to the challenge of playing the (also) undefeated Nazareth team on their home ground with one of our best performances of the year. An opening partnership of 72 in only 12 overs between form batsmen Spencer Atterton and James Taylor provided the platform for an outstanding score of 2/159 off 24 overs. Atterton played some glorious strokes in a superb innings. Felix Jones continued his great form with a very aggressive undefeated innings of 44. Early wickets to Sam Milewski and Pat Winter gave us control of the match. Jack O’Connor, Brooklyn Selway and Spencer Atterton each took multiple wickets in an impressive bowling and fielding performance. A wonderful team effort!

Mercedes 132 (Beahan 4-21, Jorgensen 3-18) defeated PGS 63 (Rundle 12)


Year 8/9 - Pulteney defeated Unley High

Pulteney 7/137 (Felix Jones 55 retired, Zac Gillard 37, Spencer Atterton 19) defeated Unley High 55 (Max Cavender 2/4, Zac Haarsma 2/9, Pat Winter 2/9, Hudson Loftes 2/14) 

We were challenged by the loss of James Taylor in the first over, but an aggressive partnership of 49 between Spencer Atterton and Felix Jones in eight overs provided a solid foundation. Zac Gillard and Felix Jones maintained the momentum with a superb partnership of 61 which only ended when Jones was retired after reaching his half century.

We lost quick wickets chasing runs in the final few overs but achieved a very defendable total of 7/137 off 25 overs. Opening bowlers Sam Milewski and Pat Winter bowled with the ultimate combination of hostility, control and outswing to unsettle the opposition. Our three spinners Hudson Loftes, Zac Haarsma and Satya Shawgi then maintained the pressure.

The bowlers were well supported by some excellent fielding, highlighted by an outstanding catch by Henry Bradley. The winning streak is extended to 10 matches.

T20 - Friday 27 October

Pulteney 9/41 (Rundle 11) were defeated by St Ignatius College 1/190 

Outclassed by stronger opposition! Disappointing application from the middle order batting must be addressed if we are to improve.

Week 2 - Saturday 28 October


1st XI - Pulteney were defeated by Pembroke

PGS 9/141 (Craddock 24, Strawbridge 24, Rundle 14, Knights 17, Dolphin 16) were defeated by Pembroke 2nd X1 4/208

A solid bowling performance up to the 30 over mark, then haemorrhaged 90 runs from the last 10 overs. Single wickets to Brunning, Beahan, Jorgensen & Thesinger. Batting started well with Craddock & Strawbridge scoring a 50 run opening partnership. Solid batting contributions also from Rundle, Knights & Dolphin, but lost our way again around the 30 over mark. Stretching our batting over 40 overs was an improvement.

Year 8/9 - Pulteney defeated Scotch

Pulteney 4/148 (James Taylor 39 retired, Spencer Atterton 29, Satya Shawgi 28) defeated Scotch 67 (Sam Milewski 4/11, Aidan Rowett 3/11, Pat Winter 2/3) 

An excellent all-round performance preserved our undefeated status and extended our winning run to nine matches. Each of our top three batsmen Spencer Atterton, James Taylor and Satya Shawgi scored freely to provide the foundation for a very impressive score of 4/148 off 25 overs. Patrick Winter produced two outstanding spells in his return to cricket, Aidan Rowett captured three top order wickets and Sam’s Milewski’s hostile bowling was rewarded with four wickets in an eight ball spell. High quality fielding and positive leadership helped us to achieve a comfortable 81 run victory.
