(Match report by Nick Houseman)
The Primary Club’s annual fixture against I-Zingari at their picturesque home ground at Camden is a highlight of the calendar and this year was no exception. We played on a perfect late summer Sunday with warm blue skies, cooling breeze with a rural waft of cows and fertiliser floating across the lush green outfield.
I-Zingari batted first and did well to survive a tight and testing opening spell of bowling by Scarcella and Pearce. The breakthrough came in the 7th over with a wicket to Pearce. Scarcella bowled 24 deliveries before have a run against his figures demonstrating how tight the opening spell was.
I-Zingari started to settle in before disaster struck with Lovell retiring hurt with an injured leg. With the score at less than 25 after 10 overs runs were difficult to get. An inspiring spell of bowling from the skipper together with discipline in the field ensured that the batting team could not really get any momentum. Wickets fell at regular intervals and the I-Zingari team was eventually rolled for 72 in 33 overs. Scarcella’s 3 for 18 was the pick of the bowling with plenty of support from other bowlers. In fact, all six bowlers used took wickets. From the I-Zingari team most batters struggled to get a start apart from opener Gerber (15) and Borean (17).
The lunch break was taken early and both sides enjoyed a fantastic spread put on by the I-Z side and started to dissect and ponder the mornings surprising play.
After lunch Primary Club opened the batting with Holmes (4) and Mullane (7) both playing shots from the opening overs. The entertainment then continued with Favell (18) and exciting new addition Ayoub (39 not out) playing shots to all parts of the park. The total was run down in 14 overs for a comprehensive victory for Primary Club. Astonishing given it has been some years since the Primary Club has won at Camden and given the closeness historically of those fixtures.
Special thanks to the I-Zingari team for once again showing great hospitality and to all for a fantastic day played in the right spirit. We look forward to next year.
The PCA team on the day was:
Joe Scarcella (c); Nick Houseman (vc), Graham Buck; Garth Pearce; D Bell; Dale Arnull; Murray Holmes; Peter Mullane; Brett Favell; Milad Ayoub; Will McDougall; Peter Lanham; Ron Bowden.
Batting: – M. Ayoub 39 n.o. (2x6s, 4 4s); B Favell 18 (2 x 4s)
Bowling: - J. Scarcella 3-18 (10 overs); G. Pearce 2-22 (8 Overs); G. Buck 2-8 (3.1 overs); N. Houseman 1-8 (5 overs); D Bell 1-10 (5 overs); D Arnul 1-4 (1 over)
15 Overs-a-Side Match
With the early finish to the main match, the day was too good to cut short so both sides readily agreed to a 15 over game for the remainder of the day. This time PCA batted first and put together a competitive 6 -74 from its allotted overs. Runs were shared across a number of batters, with Lanham top scoring with 19, ably supported by Houseman (13) and Pearce (13)
I-Z challenged hard throughout with impressive batting performances from some of the young lads from the I-Z team. Hodge scored 22, J Steward 17 and D.Lovell was not out with a disciplined 12. It came down to the last over, but tight bowling from Buck (2-3 off 2 overs) ensured that PCA took the day, with I-Z falling short at 7 -68.

The Special Olympics NSW Cricket team travelled to Adelaide to compete in the Inaugural Special Olympics Australia cricket tournament over the 9-10 February 2013.
The event included an opening ceremony on the Friday night and two games of 20/20 cricket as part of the competition. On Saturday night, the athletes did a lap of honour on the historic Adelaide Oval during the dinner break of the Ryobi Cup one-day cricket match between South Australia and Victoria.
All athletes and team supporters were accommodated together at the TAFE International Accommodation.
Special Olympics South Australia worked closely with the South Australian Cricket Association to ensure the tournament was a success and it is hoped this will become an annual competition.
The Special Olympics NSW Cricket team says it was a wonderful time for their athletes and carers. The boys performed admirably and won the bronze medal. They defeated ACT and SA, but lost narrowly to QLD and VIC and was still in the mix for gold up to the last match.
The cricket kit The Primary Club of Australia funded was well appreciated and all that used the equipment commented on the quality of this new gear. The photos below show the team in their team uniforms over the weekend.

On the 4th November 2012, the brave souls of the Primary Club of Australia faced up again against the Blind Cricket New South Wales at the grounds at Shore, Northbridge.
The important message of the day is not who won or lost but how the game was played. (The Primary Club lost again).
Unfortunately the original plan of scoring using a iPad didn’t work so Graham from the Blind Cricket NSW kept score and kept it brilliantly. It was a close game.
Alas even after 30 overs a side .. the game came down the final ball, as long as the Primary Club ran 15 runs on it. They fell 12 runs short.
Below are photos from the day.
Sir Donald Bradman first visited the SCG to watch a Test as a 12-year old with his father and became inspired to play the game seriously. “I shall never be satisfied,” he told his father, “until I play on this ground”.
Now everybody can live the Don’s dream, while raising money to provide sports facilities for people with disabilities, by getting a team together for Marathon Cricket 2013.
Organised by the Primary Club of Australia, with the passionate support of Trust Chairman Rodney Cavalier and Cricket NSW, the charity event offers every cricket enthusiast the opportunity to play the game they love on the hallowed SCG.
More than 40 teams are expected to compete in the modified Twelve/12 format. Teams are divided into two overall groups, the Twelfth Man’s XI and the President’s XI, for which they accumulate scores while playing games scheduled over two days from 7am to 10pm.
In recent years, the entertainment has been boosted by a feature match. In 2011, the Indigenous NRL All-Stars (pictured} battled Cricket Australia’s under-23 indigenous team for the Jack Marsh Cup. This summer there will be a ‘Battle of the Codes’ with the Legends of Rugby Union led by John Eales taking on Brett Kim morley and his Legends of Rugby League.
Dates for the 2013 event are Thursday 24th and Friday 25th January. For more details visit the Primary Club website: www.primaryclub.com or call (02} 9980 2525 for further details or to enter your team.
Cricketers of all ages (male or female) are welcome, and there are corporate team packages, which include sponsorship opportunities and premium tickets to the ‘Legends of Sport’ Marathon Cricket Dinner in the SCG’s Steve Waugh Room. Priority bookings are given to financial members of the Primary Club ($50 per annum).
