NORTHERN DISTRICT SCHOOLS CUP
COMPETITION NEWS - SEASON 2020/21
This season 2020/21, now sees the 43rd running of the Northern District Cricket Club School’s Cup underway.
In one semi-final, Barker College defeated Knox Grammar School.
This long running competition has a great history that provides opportunities for school cricketers, both boys and girls to show their talents, and is played within the age boundaries to Years 7 and 8.
Last season's T20 final was held on 18th February 2019 at Mark Taylor Oval with Knox Grammar and Epping Boys High as finalists, and what unfurled was an incredible game, that was not decided until the last ball of the match.

The NDCC School's Cup is an annual competition played between secondary schools from the local area. The Cup is a knock-out structure, played under 20/20 over format, on school afternoons at the school grounds.
The Grand Finals were originally played in March at Mark Taylor Oval, Waitara. Many players who have played in the competition have gone on to play Grade Cricket at NDs.
The NDCC School's Cup was an initiative of Life Members, Tom Richmond and Neil Marks (also a Club Patron). Neil and Tom organised the very first competition in the 1975/76 season, which was won by Barker College from Knox Grammar.
