Be part of the King's College Cricket Club!
Thursday, 28 February 2019
The KCOCA is proud to support the King's College Cricket Club.  A message from the Committee:

King's College has always been a leading Auckland school in cricket.  Our boys' 1st XI has represented the College at the Nationals on many occasions, winning the title five times in the last 20 years. The College has also sent our Year 9/10 boys to the Nationals, having won the Auckland schools' competition on a regular basis. With such illustrious performances and many Black Caps to salute, including Tim Southee(School, 2004-06), James & Hamish Marshall(Selwyn, 1996-97) and Rob Nicol(Major, 1997-2000), the King's College Cricket Club has been formed to support, encourage and develop cricket within the College at all grades. We want to ensure all cricketers are given opportunities to excel, enjoy and continue playing until, and long after, they leave school.

A recent addition to the College facilities was the completion of the fantastic three lane Tom Hellaby Indoor Cricket Centre for batting and bowling in wet conditions and pre-season winter training, which is available for all students, along with specialist coaching. The College has also invested in two new turf wickets, making it one of the only schools in Auckland to have four separate grass wickets. The College is fortunate to currently employ the services of former NZ Test Cricketer Dipak Patel as the Head Coach of the 1st XI.

We look forward to sharing our many growth initiatives with those former cricketers or passionate Old Collegians. In the meantime we hope you will take this opportunity to come and watch the Kings 1st XI play Auckland Grammar on 2 March or St Kentigern College on 16 March and catch up with some familiar faces. The pavilion will be open on both days to all spectators, serving refreshments from 2.30-5.30pm.

We have a passionate committee (King's College Head of Cricket Matt Cowie, Lizzie Ross, Lynette O’Connor, Andy Morris(St John's, 1974-78) and Greg Olliver) who are all determined to make a difference and to keep the proud traditions of King's Cricket going.

We look forward to updating you in the future on the KCCC.
