Yesterday's Third XI match saw Andrew Celle score 229no, the first time in almost half a century of Cougars history that any batsman has passed the elusive double century mark. Also sharing the milestones was Tom Wentworth, who posted a personal best score of 129. Andy and Tom shared a 2nd wicket partnership of 321, also a new Club record.
It was a day for many personal milestones and new club records, including:

  • Andrew Celle's first century for the Cougars (229no);
  • Andrew's score of 229no establishes a new Club record for highest individual score, at all levels;
  • Andrew's innings marks the first time any batsman has reached a double century for the Cougars, eclipsing the previous best of 199 by Jason Beer in the season of 2000/01;
  • Tom Wentworth's first century for the Cougars (129);
  • Andrew and Tom's 2nd wicket partnership of 321, establishes a new Club record for the highest partnership for any wicket, eclipsing the previous best of 285 for the 3rd wicket, between Clint Semmel and Mano Muttiah in the season of 1994/95;
  • Ricky Alabaster takes a personal best 6/33 with the ball, playing in the Second XI.

On behalf of everyone at the Club, congratulations to Andrew, Tom and Ricky on their record-breaking efforts - well done guys!
