KIAMA Knights junior league have become the trend-setters of the competition thanks to their innovation of playing music in breaks of play and announcing players as they enter the field and also when tries are scored and goals kicked.
Initiated and run by long-time Knights' supporter and committee member Emma Timms (aka DJ Em), the move has been a great hit with players and spectators and people attending next weekend’s mod finals at Chittick Oval are in for a treat.
Rumour has it that Emma has knocked back massive money offers to turn professional, but she just wants to hone her DJ skills with the Knights.
Congratulations Emma and the Knights on a great innovation!
With the VB South Coast Rugby League season now into its final round before the semi-finals, two long-serving and much valued club members who have taken on the arduous job of PA at games, which also includes phoning results in after games, have decided to hang up the microphones.
John Ramsay from Albion Park-Oak Flats and Pat Shooks from Batemans Bay phoned their final scores through last Sunday and as the person who relies on people not only being punctual, but also accurate with their scores and scorers, I really appreciate their efforts and look forward to catching up with them at their respective home grounds next season.
South Coast Cricket Association has moved quickly to formalise their new senior structure and have already published their draws for the new Premier League, first grade and second grade competitions.
With competitions, commencing on November 11, in Premier League Albion Park will host Kiama, Oak Flats play Lake Illawarra at Geoff Shaw and Shellharbour City will take on Warilla Kookas at Tom Willoughby Oval.
The first grade draw will pit Jamberoo against The Rail, Gerringong against Oak Flats and Lake play Shellharbour, while in second grade will see Kookas play Albion Park, Kiama play Jamberoo and The Rail host Gerringong.
The new format is the most exciting thing to happen in South Coast Cricket for years and I personally can’t wait to see how the competition pans out.
