ICC Sharks 2016 & 2017 Season

Hi all,

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.

Sit down with ACA

Late in December 2015, Rick Foster sat down with the Australian Cricketers Association, and had a quick chat about his leg-spin bowling, the club, and what it was like bowling to some of the best batsman in world cricket today. Check out the YouTube video below.

Rick Fosters Aussie Nets Bowling Experience

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.
