Sutherlands Park, Huntingdale, Western Australia

gosnellssmallmainSutherlands is the home of the Gosnells Cricket Club, a relative newcomer to the WACA District competition – admitted in 1987.


I’d heard Sutherlands had a real scoreboard and the club liked it.


A diligent young man operated the board on my visit for a one-day game between Gosnells and a star-studded Fremantle line-up that included Shaun Marsh, Mitch Marsh, Ashton Turner and Jhye Richardson. Gosnells did well to restrict Fremantle to 8/225. Shaun Marsh made 26 and Mitch 59. Matt Leipold’s 2/39 included the wickets of Shaun Marsh and Turner and he also deflected the ball onto the stumps to bring Mitch Marsh’s innings to an unlucky end.


Best performers: Matt Leipold defends against Mitch Marsh.

Gosnells looked on track for a while but the dismissal of Leipold for 60 made things a bit too difficult and the home team was all out for 187.
