Stockham returns to his devastating best

Port Lincoln cricket

Players of the Week

WAYBACK’S spearhead Shane Stockham returned to form with a devastating opening spell against Tasman.

He ripped through their top order, finishing with 5/19, allowing Wayback to defend their modest total of 136.

In the B grade there were plenty of solid performances with both bat and ball.

Gabe Cox (Charlton), Darren Atkins (Wayback) and Kerrin Siebert (Southern Eyre South) all claimed four wickets.

However, this week’s award goes to the evergreen Brenton Hammond whose 72 guided Wayback to victory over Tasman.

Henderson Shield

This year’s fixture sees Port Lincoln take on Le Hunte at home and Great Flinders in Cummins.

Matches will be played back to back on December 16 and 17.

Breakthrough performances from players such as Jacob Watson, Billy Campbell, Marcus Sarunic and Corey Stephens are sure to give selectors some food for thought this year.

Orchard returns

It was great to see Port Lincoln Cricket Association life member and Lincoln South legend Stephen Orchard pull on the whites once again on the weekend in their B grade match against Charlton.

Orch dominated South’s innings and fell just two short of what may have been his maiden B grade hundred. 

Lincoln South supporters will be keen to see him in action again throughout the season.
