The Gappers

Gappers Convenor
Mark Wright

The Gappers junior development programme is held at HKCC and is available to both members and non-members of the club. The programme is overseen by the Head Coach and several well-credentialled professional coaches and a large team of parent assistants help to implement it and make it an enjoyable learning experience. More than 350 boys and girls face off in four age-group sessions each Saturday morning between September to March last season. Special cricket camps are also run for promising youngsters. Juniors from as young as 4 are taught how to hold a bat and throw a ball, while fast-growing league competitions at U-11, U-13, U-15 and more recently, U-17 level, help to ensure the development of cricketers through to the adult competitions. Youngsters up to the age of 14 are eligible for Junior Gappers. For older children, mid-week coaching is available on an invitation basis.

The HKCC Sharks took on KCC Wasps at 09:30am to get the day started. The HKCC Sharks captain was Isamu Naito, who invited KCC Wasps to bowl first. Opening batters, Isamu Naito & Hursh Singh, both retired on 20 to start the innings. HKCC Sharks returned a healthy 114 from their 14 overs.

All of the Sharks bowlers bowled tidy lines and lengths, which rewarded them bowling out KCC Wasps for 88. This sent the Sharks through to the Final against DLSW Cheetahs. The final got underway, with HKCC Sharks selecting to bat first. The first innings saw a great team effort with five of eight batters making scores of 15+. HKCC Sharks ended on 119; a very respectable total. A fine fielding and bowling performace saw the Sharks crowned champions; Andy Ward pick of the bowlers, returning 2 for 5 off 3 overs.
