1. Charlie Thurston
set a new record for the highest score in all forms of the game with his outstanding 242* on Saturday 9th February 2019 - previous best Jamie Gibson 201*. Very important innings in that Easts were 92 behind on the first innings and needed to bat as long as possible. His 242 not out included 33 fours and 7 sixes.

2. Best 5th wicket partnership of 206 runs
for Charlie Thurston 242* and Jimad Khan 77.

Previous record was 143 scored in 2010 with Scott Golder 103 and David Holt 52*. The 4th wicket partnership for Charlie Thurston 242* & Jamie Gibson 108 in the same game was 191.

3. Highest innings in a Two Day game 488.
previous best was 449 against Karori in 2015. It was also our 2nd highest innings in all forms of the game with the current record of 550 set last year against Johnsonville in the Pearce Cup final.

Congratulations Charlie, Jimad and Jamie - absolutely brilliant !!!!!

Lange Dry

Yes we said we would get it back in 2019 and the Premier Men team achieved this on 27th January 2019 in the one day final against Johnsonville at Kilbirnie Park.

Johnsonville struggled to get runs and scored 212-10 after some tight bowling from Daylan Sharma 2-20, Jed Wiggins 1-26, Peter Connell 2-39 and Jamie Gibson 3-56 along with 2 run outs by Lauchie Johns and Jed Wiggins.

We responded with some good batting achieving the target with 7 overs to spare scoring 217-4. All batters contributed well with Jeremy Dean 29, Lauchie Johns 38, Matt Ansell 35, Charlie Thurston 14, Jamie Gibson 60* and Jimad Khan 49*.

Great victory and qualification to play again in the National Club Championship in April 2019
