Volunteers Wanted – Bunnings BBQ (4th July)

Published by:

Hi Everyone,

NCC needs your help on 4th July at Bunning Atarmon. Every year we are extremely fortunate to get the chance to sell some snags and raise some much needed funds for the club. These funds allow us to have amazing presentation evenings, intra-club games, training at the SCG and help subsidize NCC clothing. Without these BBQ’s the club simply couldn’t function.

So we need your help. If interested please send me an email at

See you then!

Thank you – 2014/2015 Season

Published by:

Dear Cricketers,

Firstly, I would like to say a huge thank you to all our NCC members for taking part in the 2014/2015 season.

While in terms of trophies it wasn’t our most successful year, many of our members have smashed their own season records and can be found among the NSCA’s best. We also can’t forget some of the star performances throughout the year with diving catches, amazing 50s/100s, hat tricks and 5fers.

So what happens next?

Presentation Night

Details are slowly being finalized but the date: Saturday, 2nd May has been set for our Annual Presentation night. Located in North Sydney (details to be confirmed), it will be a new venue for Northbridge Cricket Club that has potential for a future long-term partnership.

Our presentation night is always a very special event on the NCC Calendar. Over the years, we have had many famous cricketing stars to attend the evening such as Brendon Julian, Nathan Bracken, Shane Watson, Brett Lee and the late Phillip Hughes (to name a few).

Winter Cricket

In the past few seasons, Northbridge CC have been consecutive premiers of the SMCA competition. Played slightly different from the summer season, games are played fortnightly (1 day game) with an early start of 10.30AM until around 3.30PM. All games are played on artificial wickets and with 10 players per team.

If you are a cricket tragic, would like to keep your form going or enjoy your winter cricket then register your interest by clicking here. Season starts late April/early May.

Annual General Meeting

Before the 2015/2016 season begins (a while away yet), we will have our AGM meeting which gives every member a say in how your club is operated. Every year we need the support of our fellow club members to run this club from electing office bearers to helping us run social media via our committee.

Every member has a voice in the NCC and we welcome your opinions, ideas and thoughts. AGM Date: Mid-August.

Bunnings BBQ

Every year we are very fortunate to be selected to host a Bunning Sausage Sizzle. These additional funds allow Northbridge to do things that other NSCA clubs just don’t do. SCG Training, NCC vs. NCC club games etc.

Dates are being confirmed but if you can help cook and serve a snag, your support as a NCC member would be great.

That’s everything for now.

If you have any further questions then don’t hesitate to contact me,

Kind regards,
Chris Olver & fellow NCC Executive.
Northbridge Cricket Club.
