Players who gained representative selection in Christchurch Metro U17 Sam Averill, Sam Idiens, Caleb Manson, Thomas McClean

just after the exciting draw against Whanganui Collegiate School. Solid preparation saw the team primed and ready for the one-day competition in Term 4, with a good win against St Bede’s in the warm up game seeing Caleb Manson fall agonisingly short of what would be his first century for the team (95) with four balls of the innings remaining. A solid opening win against St Thomas of Canterbury College saw us play the Gillette Cup semi-final against St Andrew’s College the following week, in what was the best match of the term. A tremendous team effort felt like a win, despite falling 11 runs short of the winning total with all the overs used. The team rather fell away from that moment, particularly in the batting, with four of the next five matches lost, most from winning positions.

Individual career highlights: 50 1st XI appearances – George Anderson, Thomas McClean 50 1st XI wickets – Sam Averill, Thomas McClean 1000 1st XI runs – George Anderson, Caleb Manson Five Wicket Bags – Sam Averill (1) One Day Competition : 4th place Two Day Competition : 5th place NZ Gillette Cup: Semi-final vs Willows Cricket Club XI Willows 276/8 (McClean 3/58, Averill 2/48, Belcher 2/48) beat College 213ao (McClean 77, Manson 39, Dickie 30) by 63 runs College bowled well on a good pitch with a fast outfield, but were unable to replicate their endeavours with the bat. Thomas McClean had a great match with both bat and ball in his first game as captain, and Sam Idiens took the best catch of the season in the outfield to claim the first wicket. A decent performance, but we were not good enough on the day. vs Shore School, Sydney College 88ao (Rookes 17) lost to Shore 89/3 by 7 wickets The annual two day match was reduced to a 50 overs a side game due to inclement weather, but College were unable to get into the match in any way. Regular wickets meant we set a very much below par total, which Shore knocked off with ease in 26 overs.

Team: Thomas McClean (captain), Sam Averill (vice-captain), George Anderson, Jack Belcher, Jordan Braithwaite, Ben Breitmeyer, Sam Dickie, Zach Gimblett, Will Hocquard, Ciaran Huntley, Sam Idiens, Harrison Lund, James Luxon, Caleb Manson, Daniel Metherell, Monty Rookes As in the last few years, College’s season was divided into two distinct parts. Term 1 saw two day games being played along with the T20 competition, while in Term 4 all fixtures were one day matches. With Thomas McClean as captain, the season started with College playing the annual Willows fixture, before travelling to Sydney for the annual Trans-Tasman Cricket Festival. Unfortunately, this was badly affected by adverse weather, which meant the matches were either cancelled or played as shorted fixtures. The best team performance of Term 1 was the first match win against St Bede’s College. A strong batting effort saw us reach 297, then Sam Averill took his first five-for for the team in the first innings, and a great all-round effort in the second innings saw the team win by an innings and 44 runs. Other highlights were the three 50s in the first innings against Christchurch Boys’ High School 2nd XI and George Anderson’s destructive batting in the T20 competition. The season was brought to a premature end, however, with the Covid-19 nationwide lockdown,
