Kamau Leverock Suits Up For West Torrens

December 24, 2018

On loan from Australian franchise Walkerville Cricket Club, Kamau Leverock suited up for West Torrens District Cricket Club as they took on Woodville Cricket Club at Henleyand Grange Memorial Oval in a Twenty20 match and played a pivotal role in a seven wicket triumph by the Western Eagles.

In front of a good sized and very jovial crowd Woodville won the toss and went to bat, scoring 144-for-eight in their allotted 20 overs. Leverock’s pace bowling proved difficult to handle as he returned top figures of four wickets for 22 runs from his compliment of four overs.

Replying to the total West Torrens were in trouble at 74-for-three, with Leverock one of the out batsmen. However, a middle order revival enabled Eagle to recover and secure the match in their favour.

West Torrens is a semi-professional cricket club in Adelaide, South Australia, which competes in the West End Grade Cricket Competition administered by the South Australian Cricket Association [SACA].

The Western Eagles field four senior teams and nine junior teams and are based at Henley & Grange Memorial Oval. Other grounds used by the club include Henley High School, Gleneagles Reserve and Lockleys North PS.

The club has won 14 1st grade mens premierships in a rich history of competition, with the last being in 2016/17, breaking a 10-year premiership drought. In an amazing season when the Eagles fought off a merger ultimatum from the SACA, the Eagles became the first ever club to record a clean sweep of the 2-day, one-day and T20 competition titles.

Eagles have won five West End Cup [One Day] Premierships [1971/72, 1972/73, 1993/94 and 2003/04, 2016/17] and a single T20 Premiership [2016/17]. During the past decade the club has become one of the strongest in the South Australian Grade Cricket League, winning lower grade premierships in 1995/96, 2002/03, 2007/08 & 2012/13 [B Grade], 2003/04, 2004/05 & 2006/07 [C Grade] and winning the SACA Club Championship in 2004/05, 2006/07, 2007/08 and 2011/12.
