in the final Balwyn Cricket Club J.G. Craig Shield Squad.
J.G. Craig Shield is a
high standard prestigious competition
conducted by the Victorian Sub-District Cricket Association in the month of January for cricketers at the
Under 15 level
It is an
invaluable learning experience
for a young cricketer to play in this competition on
at the grounds used by 1st XI teams of the Sub-District competition.
All 28 Sub-District teams field a side and some of the best cricketers in the metropolitan area and also some from country areas participate.
Players must be
under the age of 15 years
First and foremost we want the players to
in the J.G. Craig Shield Competition. We want them to
learn from the experience
improve their cricket skills
. We would like them to be part of a competitive team. Whilst it is good experience for the players to play in a winning team,
winning matches at all costs is not our objective
. We would like players to
play the game in a proper spirit of sportsmanship
and to enjoy themselves in the process.

attend training and judge for themselves
whether their skill levels are comparable to those of other players at the training sessions.
