FROM THE VAULT – ON THIS WEEKEND
On this weekend in season 2013/14 a very young Amy Jennings scored 110 not out in the 3rds XI T20 game versus Burnley. Box Hill compiled 1/172 from its 20 overs dominated by Amy’s innings with Bella Poon (17) and Sarah Chong (18 no) the only other batters to get to the crease. Amy is now an integral part of the 1st XI team and a 2 time Premiership player. Amy is also the coach of Box Hill’s all girls U/14 team and was a member of the U/21 Australian team at the 2018 Indoor Cricket Australasia Cup in Sri Lanka.
On this weekend in season 2001/02 Dean (“Bevo”) Kelly made his maiden century for Box Hill in their 2nd XI victory over Elsternwick. Chasing a total of 229 Dean carried his bat throughout the innings to score 104 not out from 215 balls with only 1 boundary. Dean was joined by Chris (“Percy”) Parsons at 6/135 with the side in big trouble. The pair went on to record a match winning partnership of 110 runs to secure the victory. Percy who finished on 65 not out from 72 balls would not have been happy with the amount of running required from Dean’s bat. Dean also captured 3 for 51 from 12 overs of innocuous medium pace on week 1 in an all-round performance.
