Concord Briars Junior Cricket News – 2022/23

Junior Cricket

Our Briars Juniors have just completed another amazingly successful season.
Our ambition at Briars Juniors cricket club is to provide our young cricketers, boys and girls, with the opportunity to play cricket and develop lifelong friendships along the way. We love seeing them progress into our senior Shires teams and there are many success stories over the years.
In the 2022-2023 summer season, over 573 young cricketers turned out to play in 43 teams across 5 competitions for Concord Briars Junior Cricket. A host of Briars Junior players also went on to represent IWHJCA at the NSW Youth Championship.
Congratulations to all our teams who qualified and played finals in 2023. We had 18 teams compete in the grand finals, with 9 teams winning premierships.
A big thank you to all the volunteers for their time and energy each week to support our young cricketers. We are very proud of all of you!

Girls Junior Cricket

The Briars Sports Club is proud to have sponsored the Girls representative teams this season. These teams were made up of players from across Inner West Harbour, Canterbury Wests and South Eastern Associations. We are also delighted that the under 13s Girls Representative team has won their Mollie Dive final after recording a five-wicket win over North Shore Blue. After finishing top of the table, the team enjoyed wins over Camden and Sutherland-St George in the finals before a terrific team effort helped the Associations to their first silverware in the 25-year competition.

Congratulations to all players, coaching and support staff.

Reconciliation Round – 11th and 12th February

Concord Briars Junior Cricket Club was honoured to be a part of the “Reconciliation Round”, organised by Cricket Australia for all Community and Premier clubs for the 2022/23 season on the 11th and 12th of February 2023.

Cricket Australia defines the round as “a unified movement across Australian cricket, one consistent act encouraged for all clubs across the country is for both teams and umpires to form a pre-match barefoot circle to demonstrate your commitment to reconciliation between Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-Indigenous Australians.”

At Concord Briars, we are proud of all our teams, coaches and umpires who beautifully demonstrated our commitment to reconciliation as a part of this initiative. We are thankful to our partner clubs who joined our teams in this continued quest for change.

“Stand barefoot together as a sign of your support and continued commitment to reconciliation.”
