Congratulations to Adam Pedron for winning the Div 1B Best & Fairest for the third year in a row.  It’s a great achievement to win one, but three is just amazing.  He either needs to stop being so friendly with the referees, or give the A’s a crack!

Well done also to Daniel Ong who finished joint 4th in Div 1B on 14 pts.  While in Div 4, congrats to Rob Alberton and Saber Dini who finished joint 2nd (11pts) and joint 4th (10pts) respectively.

Well done to Saber Dini and Stuart Smith who recently racked up half tonnes against Woodside and Mercedes respectively. That makes nine players hitting 50s this year.

Props also to Dan Aikin who will notch his 300th match (since 2003) next week .  If we could add all of his appearances B.W. (Before Website) he’s probably closer to 400.  To go alongside his longevity, Dan has also won a couple of league championships (2000-01), a cup (2012) and the A’s Best Player (2004) . Massive respect Face.

Congrats to Collegiate Cup winner, former committee member and current C’s coach Kirsten Staff, who – despite the ignominy of having a girl’s name – managed to rack up 100 matches last cup round.

Someone write him a profile!

Apologies to Darren Jones: who managed to slip under the radar.  Darren chalked up 50 matches on the last day of last season.  Well played!

And just so we don’t miss another one: right now we have Alex “The Greek” Tsirbas and Edward “Scissorhands” Mitchell on 49, and Matt “One Pass” Bate on 99.  Matt will hopefully not only get to triple figures next week, but will also pass his fellow former Black and film buff Richard “Superman” Harris, who is still stuck on 99.
