The Club recently pushed through two Bunnings BBQ Fundraisers recently. One at the Bunnings Seaford store, and again on December the 18th at the Bunnings Noarlunga store. Both days were successful for the club in raising funds. The ICC Sharks would like to thank Brumby’s Bakery for their donation of bread to the club. The club would like to thank volunteers Peter Richards, Ken Aberle, Richard Gray, Russell Trembath and Jess, Jason Carne, Gary Wybrew, Michael Todd, Brenton Forsyth, Michael and Glenda Noack, and Neil Hodgson. The club would also like to thank Daniel Lowe for his hard work in helping with donations from On The Run/Brumby’s each time we have a fundraiser.

ICC Sharks Secretary
A new season of cricket is fast approaching the club. Activity is happening within the senior and junior associations in regards to playing dates and teams.
We are coming off a great season of cricket where the ICC Sharks took out two Senior and one Junior Premiership, and we are looking to add more to that with the new season coming.
We are putting out a message that if there are any past players, or new players that may be interested to contact us for the upcoming season. Please do so by contacting the club secretary that you are interested in playing, or may have someone that’s interested. SACA are also pushing Girls in Sport, so if you have boys and girls at home who love cricket, they are more than welcome to join the ICC Sharks in our Junior and/or Senior ranks.
Stay tuned for more information in regards to pre-season training dates, teams and season dates, and also when the club will hold it’s A.G.M.
The club is also looking for anyone interested to volunteer to be a Child Safety Officer, if you, or anyone else you know may be interested. Please get in touch for details on course details asap.

The ICC Sharks would like to extend their thanks out to players, captains, coaches, committee members, affiliates, sponsors, parents and friends. For their help over the past season in any shape or form, the club would cease to exist without the hard work and time by our volunteers.
We think we’ve had an exceptional season, both on and off the field. We’ve seen Rick Foster get the experience of a life time, bowling to the Australian Cricket Team players in their training session, we’ve seen three senior sides in the grand finals, winning two of them. We’ve seen the Under 16’s side take out a premiership also.
An influx of sponsors to reward our players for their efforts, which has been fantastic for the club.
The ICC Sharks would also like to thank club Veteran Daniel Lowe, who has assisted us in securing On The Run to provide us with Man of the Match awards in the form of Happy Wash Valet Car Wash Vouchers. We would also like to thank Daniel for his efforts at the Club Presentation night as MC, the night was thoroughly enjoyable and good to see many faces at the event. Daniel also assisted in a supply of bread at no cost to the club from Brumby’s Bakery, for our Bunnings Sausage Sizzle fundraisers.
We would also like to thank Bill Burnett, Stewart Smith, Oliver Graham and Andrew Caldwell from SACA for their involvement with Rick Foster’s time with the Aussie team. Ashley Bryant from SACA for his support with use of the MyCricket administration system to allow us to use it better within the club. We would also like to thank Liam Coventry-Poole from the Australian Cricketers Association for his involvement with Rick, as well as the Channel 7 News Adelaide.
We would also like to pass out thanks to Wallis Cinemas – Noarlunga who also supplied Man of the Match Awards in the form of a double movie pass.
We would also like to thank Hackham Football and Social Club for hosting the club this year, Morphett Vale Butchers, ICA Cricket Shop, Action Sports Morphett Vale, Specialty Foods, Ace Tree and Stump Removal, as well as KFC Reynella and Inflatable World for suppling player of the match awards for the junior players.
And last but not least, we’d like to thank the volunteers who slaved away on the hot plates at the Bunnings BBQ’s this year, Matthew Verrall for his assistance in the transition of some committee members, and also Geoff at Brighton Trophy Center for looking after us this year!
See you all next season!
For those club members who have been around training over the past may have spotted a familiar face within the Australian Cricket Team ranks. Back in October former South Australian Redbacks Leg Spin bowler, Peter McIntyre, joined the ICC Sharks for a one on one training session with ICC Sharks A Grade leg spinner, Rick Foster.
Rick has slowly seen a rise through the grades of the ICC Sharks with his sharp leg spin bowling, from section six, up to now our now section 2/A grade side.
Ricks one on one session with Peter allowed him to learn some tricks of the trade, and great tips. Rick continued to improve on his already great leg spin bowling, as well as gain ideas from Peter on bowling a wrong-un and other variations of deliveries.
This progressed a little further, with Rick getting to live out a dream of bowling to the Australian Test Team, during their visit to the Adelaide Oval for the Day Night Test Match. Along with a news clip of Rick on Channel 7 during the week leading up, we were also there to get some photos and video of Rick bowling to some Australian greats like Steve Smith and David Warner, as well as rub shoulders with Offspinner Nathan Lyon, and Adelaide local and head coach, Darren Lehmann.
Rick has also agreed to assist with some of the All Abilities Cricket Programmes to grow cricket in the community.
Hats off to you Rick, we hope you enjoyed the ride.
