Tom Cooper leaves AUCC

After much deliberation Tom has decided to explore an opportunity with Port Adelaide District Cricket Club this season. While we are disappointed to see Tom go, he has always been a great contributor on and off the field, he leaves with our thanks for the service he has provided and our hope that he returns soon to be a permanent member of the Redbacks side. We hope that one day we might see him back with the Blacks.

AUCC statement regarding West Beach facility and juniors

It has come to the attention of the AUCC over the last few weeks that there have been comments in the media about the University’s development of cricket and soccer fields at West Beach and baseless allegations that AUCC are planning to either relocate and/or play junior cricket there.

As was clearly outlined at the last Grade Cricket Committee in answer to questions from WTDCC – the AUCC has no role in the West Beach development. Further, the AUCC has no plans to use those grounds. AUCC expects it might consider approaching the University to use those grounds should its adult sides expand or a ground/s be needed if any current ground is out of action. However, there is absolutely no plan to either relocate from our main ovals at Park 12 and Park 10 and/or establish a junior program at West Beach.

The West Beach development is a hub for a number of University sporting clubs, including Hockey (which has been located there for 30 years), soccer, gliding, mountain and scuba. The AUCC has made no financial contribution to the West Beach facility and nor has it otherwise participated in the planning or implementation. The West Beach development was conceived in 2010 having been announced as a priority in the Adelaide University Sport 2010-2020 Facilities Plan.

A big congratulations to Joel Logan who has been awarded an Adelaide University Sport Blue for his outstanding 2014/15 season.

He was awarded the AU Sport Don Stranks scholarship to the value of $2000.

In season 2015/16, Joel is once again in the “Emerging Redbacks” squad, however, is often training with the full Redbacks squad. We look forward to seeing his continued progress this season.
