Seddon 2nd XI Captain, Hernie Isorena has made his international debut for the Phillipines. Playing in an ICC T20 World Cup qualifier against Oman, Hernie batted at 5, making 6 runs from 14 balls including a boundary. Unfortunately the Phillipines side were bowled out for 36 and Oman made short work of the total, winning by 9 wickets.
Playing international cricket for the Phillipines is a goal that Hernie has been working towards and the Seddon Cricket Club congratulate him on his achievement. The Phillipines side have one match remaining in Oman, playing Bahrain today at 5.00pm AEDT. The side is yet to be named.

Senior & junior sides
With the season recommencing on the weekend, it is pleasing to know that all five senior sides are still in with a chance of making finals (or cemented in the four as is the case with the 3rds).
Not to be outdone, leading into the Christmas break the juniors have the Under 15's in the top four and other sides pushing for a spot in the finals post Christmas.
Social events - remainder of 2022
Due to the current COVID environment, the Club made the decision last week to cancel this year's Multicultural Day event - which was planned for Tuesday 25th January.
We will keep our members updated on upcoming social events, with the next event the Past Players Day on Saturday 19th February.

Vale - Steve McNamara (VTCA President)
The Club is very sorry to hear of the passing of VTCA President, Steve McNamara, on Saturday just gone. The Club had great respect for Steve and the work he put into running the VTCA over many years. The VTCA Board will be meeting tomorrow evening to discuss matters moving forward. In due course, we will update club members on the VTCA's plans with honoring Steve and the completion of the 2021/22 season.
For those who have a subscription, here is a Herald Sun article about Steve's passing and his VTCA legacy.
