The SCC (formerly UTS Balmain Cricket Club) play in the world renowned Sydney Grade Cricket Competition. With over 100 years of history and tradition, SCC has long been a mainstay of the competition. During this time, many Balmainiacs (both male and female) have represented various city, state and national sides. In season 2006/07 there are 15 different sides representing the black and gold, nine of these mens and six women’s.

One Balmainiac stands on the verge of eclipsing one of Sydney Grade cricket’s longest standing and most significant record. Opening batsman Greg Hayne, also a member of the Balmain Team of the Century, requires a further 36 runs to become the greatest run scorer in SCA history. This is an amazing achievement, leaving Greg to be remembered forever as one of the clubs greatest ever players, as well as one of the finest in the history of cricket in Sydney.

2007/08 is one of great promise for SCC (formerly UTS Balmain). The men’s first grade side welcome back a couple of familiar faces in Mark Atkinson and Karl Whatham, and with Jason Krejza being appointed captain of a team of spirited and able competitors, first grade will be looking to have a far more productive season. Second grade, under the leadership of the Neil Maxwell will be hoping to go one better than the two runners-up positions they have finished in consecutive seasons. The loss of several experienced campaigners from the lower grades has left many holes to fill these voids and press for higher honors within the club.
