Westbury has plenty of reason to celebrate

THE Westbury Cricket Club will have plenty to celebrate at its 2013-14 end-of-season dinner on Saturday, May 31, at Aurora Stadium.

The club has enjoyed its most successful season since its inception in 1948, with all four of its grade sides making their respective grand finals _ believed to be a first in NTCA history.

``We won two premierships out of the four in A grade and third grade and we were aligned with the Cock N Bull Crusaders team that won the inaugural Aussie 15s competition at Aurora Stadium,'' Shamrocks president Michael Claxton said.

``Our club coach Adrian Tudor did a great job over three years building up the club's young talent.

``We also have an alignment with St Patrick's College and some of our players who played A grade and in our third grade premiership were part of their first XI that won the independent schools state premiership.

``Richard Soule and Luke McCormack have done a great job with the St Pats end of our club, which we've had going for our 11th season.

``We are really starting see some benefits from their school cricketers coming through to our club and being able to use their facilities on a Tuesday night, which is fantastic.''

Westbury won the Harold Bushby Shield for the best NTCA club with points accumulated across all four grades of the competition.

``We've also had great support from the Meander Valley Council and works manager Michael Pel who look after our ground out here,'' Claxton said.
