Coach Chris Galwey almost added the Canterbury Area U19 tournament to his list of achievements as a player or coach but was denied by the very last ball of the week as South Canterbury tied their last match in the tournament held at Illam during the first week of December.

A rain ruined week of weather meant that only two matches could be played on the Thursday and Friday of the tournament and after winning their Thursday match, if SC had been able to win on the Friday they would have won the tournament, but alas a tie was the end result.

The players did have a bonus during the week as Chris called on some of his playing day contacts and the team all had Tuesday indoor nets with Sir Richard Hadlee and Paul Wiseman both in attendance for the afternoon and passing on their knowledge and tips for the spinners and the quicks, an occasion that should stay in the players memories for a long time.
