      Clarence District Cricket Club has appointed Englishman and current Dunstall Cricket Club captain/coach Matt Gouldstone its senior club coach for the 2014-15 season. Gouldstone's club plays in the very competitive Derbyshire Premier League, which has progressed from the bottom half of its league to top four under his leadership. Clarence President Tony Rice is excited about the appointment and said, "Matt is a very well-credentialed and experienced coach in the English county and league cricket system, and is a solid consistent player, so we are extremely happy to secure his services". Dunstall Club Chairman Andrew Mandleberg had no hesitation recommending Gouldstone to Clarence, advising the club, "He has proved to be a dedicated skipper and we are all delighted with the professional and mature approach Matt has brought to the Club which is now being reflected by success in the Derbyshire Premier League.” Gouldstone and his fiancé Gemma, who is Australian, are permanently relocating to Australia. "In terms of the move itself, it's a family lifestyle decision. My partner has family in NSW, and we would prefer to 'build' our life in Australia, and Hobart would be perfect” said Gouldstone. They will arrive in Hobart in September when Gouldstone will take up his coaching role at Clarence, and Gemma who is a qualified lung physiotherapist will seek work in Tasmania's health system. Gouldstone will be able to build on the three years of excellent work by Scott Kremerskothen, who has retired from coaching to focus on his new role as a dad. "Yes, Krema has done a great job for us during the past three years developing our young group, and we are hopeful he will be able to continue his contribution to the club by playing on and doing some specialist coaching from time to time", said Tony Rice. Clarence has also appointed its coaching support staff, with Matthew Rice, Ben Puzny and Wade Irvine taking up assistant roles. "This year we have decided to increase our coaching support, because it’s a big job in a club such as ours. We have a lot of good young kids coming through and we want them to have the best coaching and leadership that we can afford. It’s too big a job for just one man, but Matt Gouldstone will be pivotal in planning, organising, managing and leading the coaching team and the club" said President Rice.

    Finals time has arrived! Congratulations to the firsts and the under-17’s who managed to secure top spots. The firsts will be playing at the Bellerive Oval and the under-17’s will be at the TCA Ground. Well done to Riley Meredith who took his first first-grade five-wicket haul last week against New Town and Evan Gulbis for his performance in the recent Shield game against South Australia. As usual there will be player’s dinners if I’m not mistaken. In regards to the under-15’s there will be a BBQ and a short presentation gathering at Bellerive Oval on the Sunday at 12 o’clock. Although not a great season in terms of success they persevered throughout the season and showed much improvement. Last weekend saw the end of the season for second and third grade due to losses in both grades to New Town. To be honest that’s disappointing considering the amount of talent that is at the club particularly in second grade. Inconsistency in both grades, particularly with the bat, was too prevalent. On the positive side regaining a few more regular players this season should bear fruit looking forward to next season.

    There are a few things that need to be said – first things first. We’d like to thank Janine and the other ladies who have volunteered their time to cook the delicious meals of a Thursday night – it is highly appreciated. On that note we also acknowledge the work done by other volunteers around the club such as coaching and scoring. Obviously this week is important in the context of playing finals for second and third grade, so good luck. First grade and under-17’s are both sitting on top of the ladder and we hope they can continue deep into the finals. Hopefully the under-15’s play can get underway after wet weather prevented play last week. The Women’s side have played their last game for the season. Even though they didn’t make the finals they made a fantastic effort throughout the season with a predominately young and local team and the club is looking forward to the future on that front. It’s been nice this season to play a few more home games than normal this season, especially as we have been able to use the members’ facilities. The most recent game was the Kookaburra Cup Final, which unfortunately was lost to Lindisfarne but that’s in the past now. Congratulations to Jonathan Wells, Evan Gulbis and Sam Rainbird for being part of the Hobart Hurricanes squad that has managed to get into the Champions League. Recognition also for Michael Jones and Harry Allanby for going to New Zealand as part of the Tasmanian side that travelled across the Tasman, Shannon Tubb who was a coach in that squad. Well done to Isaac Salter and Liam Devlin for batting well in the Tasmanian under-17 side that went to South Australia recently as part of the under-17 carnival and for both breaking into the Firsts this year. Isaac is showing the benefits by scoring a ton las week. Liam and Caiden Workman are currently away with the under 15 state team. Lastly the annual dinner is on the 12th of April so just a reminder of that.

    Happy New Year! Hope everyone has had a good time during the break. This week four teams resume competition, with 1st, 2nd and 3rd grade returning on the Saturday whilst the Under-17’s do likewise on Sunday. The Women’s and the Under-15 Premier League start up again on the 12th of January, with the Under-15 Youth League recommencing on Australia Day. It is closer to the business end of the season now and the CDCC is looking forward to the challenges ahead. 1st Grade sit in third place, 2nd grade sit in fifth spot two points outside the four whilst the thirds moved up to third. Especially for third grade, it will be nice to play more two-day cricket after cancellations to two games earlier in the season. Last we’d like to acknowledge the players who have been part of the Tasmanian Tigers set up, the Hurricanes and in Harry Allanby’s case, being signed for the Adelaide Strikers. Congratulations to the likes of Jonathan Wells, Sam Rainbird, Evan Gulbis and Allanby and good luck for the rest of the season. Thanks to the coaches, scorers and other volunteers around the club who give up their time to help this club run. For example I know the people at the Christmas dinner had a wonderful time and that was due to people who were willing to give up their time to make it possible. So thank you very much – certainly learnt some new Christmas Carols. Let’s have a great start to the New Year.

    This week presents a rare opportunity to see not only the Clarence 1st Grade play at Blundstone Arena, but the only game 2nd Grade is scheduled to play at home this Saturday, 14th of December. The day starts with the 1st Grade playing the first T20 game at 10 AM against University, 2nd Grade play their game against Lindisfarne at 1:20 PM before Clarence 1st Grade finish off the day by playing Lindisfarne at 4:35 PM. CDCC President Tony Rice said he was looking forward to Saturday. “It’ll be nice for some blokes who haven’t played at Bellerive before to have that experience.” With the fact it is a T20 weekend right across the board in all grades, people in other grades or other family and friends who want to come along are more than welcome to do so and the CDCC website believes that the rooms will be open for a drink.

    First this week congratulations are in order to state players Sam Rainbird, Evan Gulbis and Jonathan Wells for their selection and performance in the first Sheffield Shield game against New South Wales, in particular Rainbird who managed figures of 6-68 in the first innings including the wicket of Michael Clarke. Last Saturday Clarence managed to capitalise on good positions from the previous week to secure wins in all senior grades and the Under 17’s. In the firsts, Harry Allanby managed to pick up where he left off the previous Saturday with 144, his maiden first-grade hundred, combining well with Wade Irvine (57 not out) for a 173-run partnership for the sixth wicket. It allowed a declaration 183 runs ahead with two sessions left, which proved to be just enough time to bowl North Hobart out for 181 to secure ten points. Allanby took 4-46 including the final wicket whilst James Hickey chimed in with 3-31, continuing his good form. Daniel Meredith, Alex Treanor and Adrian Dusautoy were the upgrades to cover the absence of state players Sam Rainbird, Jonathan Wells and Evan Gulbis for the second week after helping put the seconds in a winning position the week before. In second grade Ben Kanizay and Martin Stirling extended the lead to 208 before Kanizay’s hundred off 88 balls led to the declaration an hour before lunch, Stirling ending up unbeaten on 43. Without Meredith and Treanor, who had taken seven wickets in the first innings, Stirling and Will McAdam managed to secure an outright victory with three wickets each. In third grade Matthew Tansey took 5-32 off 15.2 overs to make sure of a first innings win whilst Martin Devlin got his first wicket for the club amongst 11 tidy overs. North Hobart ended up falling 70 runs short of 193. In the Under 17’s a three-wicket victory was obtained, with Kyle Palmer-Hughes managing 76 at better than a run a ball with starts from the other batsmen. The target of 179 was chased down in 37 overs on a Sunday in which rain led to draws in other games. The Under 15’s game was rained out with the score on 7-98 off 48 overs chasing 205 with Fynn Rackett managing the highest score of 22. The Women’s game followed the under 15’s game at Fergusson Park and whilst that game was reduced to 18 overs a side, Kingborough managed to record a 14 run win. For Clarence Erin Fazackerley top scored with 21 while Natalie Pearce, Belinda Grant and Leesa Walker managed two wickets each. (Ed – Is that all?) Alright Tony I was getting to that mate. There is a slight error in the scorecard for second grade. As much as Paul Potter would like to claim credit for taking 3-22 off 13 overs in the first innings, the only way he could do so is if he could manage to be in two places at the same time. It was in fact Treanor who did that – Potter was too busy running himself out at the time in third grade. But he was an upgrade for the second week, hence the muck-up on the computer. Good luck all teams for the coming week and the guys in Queensland for the ongoing Sheffield Shield match.

    Work is well underway on the new centre wicket at Kangaroo Bay. CDCC President Tony Rice welcomed this saying, “It’s great to see that work has started at Kangaroo Bay and we’re looking forward to playing games there at some point next season. The word is that work on the practise nets is supposed to commence in the near future.” Congratulations to Jonathan Wells, Evan Gulbis, Sam Rainbird and Harry Allanby who are all in the Tasmanian squad for the Ryobi Cup in NSW. Highlights so far include a half century from Gulbis that helped defeat South Australia. It was nice to see the club get off to a great start on the weekend with a couple of wins in first grade which will hopefully be replicated when the other grades start not this weekend but next. Rice welcomed back Martin Stirling and Callum Crawford back to the club, who are the new second and third grade captains. “It’s nice to have both guys back after some time away. Martin’s experience and knowledge will be fantastic for the development of young guys who are pushing for first grade. Likewise, it’s nice to have Callum back at the club to captain third grade.” Rice also thanked outgoing second grade captain Nick Jones for his contribution last year remarking, “His efforts last year are definitely appreciated and what he did last year will bear fruit down the road with the young team he led."

    Kangaroo Bay Re-development: Work is scheduled to commence on the new center wicket area  in early August. Steady progress is being made in relation to the off field facilities, in anticipation of a complete re-location in 2015. It was sad to see the clubhouse demolished last week. But as Andrew Dykes said, "It's not the bricks and mortar, It's the people, that make a club"! Pre season training: Commenced under the watchful eyes of Scott Kremerskothen, Ben Puzny and Ben Harris, at the TCA indoor centre on the Domain, with good numbers in attendance. Training is on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, with an optional fitness session on Monday evenings at Clarence High School, from 5:30pm. New Players: The club is keen to increase player numbers for season 2013-2014. As is always the case, we are looking for additional players in Senior,Junior and Women's teams. So if you are keen, or know anyone that would like to play grade cricket, you are most welcome to come along.
