Jake Wood makes Grade 1 debut

By Thomas Pickles

Royal High Corstorphine’s returning overseas amateur Jacob Wood made his 1st grade debut last weekend, for Randwick/Petersham in NSW Premier Cricket.

In his 1st game Jacob performed well, bowling 5 tight overs, taking 1/18. His wicket was courtesy of a sharp return catch off his own bowling as he beat the batsmen in flight. Sadly, Randwick/Petersham lost in a low scoring encounter in the local Derby against Eastern Suburbs.

At the halfway point in the season Jacob has now taken 24 wickets at an average of 20 and scored over 200 valuable runs for the prestigious Randwick/Petersham club in his first season. Jacob will be returning for another Scottish season in 2019, aiming to build on a 2018 season where he took 21 league wickets at 13.6 and scored 259 league runs, including a dazzling century at Forfarshire.

NSW Premier Cricket is a cricket competition played in Sydney, Australia. NSW Premier has been described as the toughest 1st grade Club Competition in the world and for over 120 years NSW Premier Cricket has been a testing ground for future NSW and Australian representatives, from Victor Trumper, Don Bradman, Bill O’Reilly and Richie Benaud through to Steve and Mark Waugh, Glenn McGrath, Michael Clarke, Mitchell Starc, David Warner, and Steve Smith.

Randwick/Petersham fielded its first 1st Grade team on 29 September 2001 just three months after Randwick and Petersham-Marrickville, two clubs with a century of tradition behind them, merged to form a new Grade Cricket Club.
