Ryan Felder has
named the 2014
SACA North East
of the Year.
Felder was present-
ed with the award at
Adelaide Oval on New
A total of 35 regional
finalists were named,
with each seven regions
acknowledging a win-
Felder said the award
came as "quite a sur-
"When I was standing
with all the other nomi-
nations and you look at
all the work they have
done, it is very hum-
bling," he said.
Felder said despite
his name being on the
trophy, the award recog-
nised many more people
within local cricket.
"All the people who
do the hard work at indi-
vidual club level, it is for
them as well because if
it wasn't for them, there
wouldn't be a RTCA,"
Felder said his role as
president has been chal-
lenging and there was
"still plenty to do".
"My vision is to
RTCA publicity offi-
cer James Patterson said
Felder had been "invalu-
able" to local cricket.
"He has been fan-
tastic in his role. His
most notable achieve-
ment probably was that
he brought the junior
competition within the
RTCA umbrella," he
Patterson said he got
Felder into cricket five
"Brown's Well were
absolutely desperate for
players one game," he
"So, I got the phone
book out and I started at
the letter A.
"I worked my way
through people I knew
to call. I got to 'F' for
Felder and gave him a
call, as I had played a
few games of basketball
"And Felder said,
'Yeah, I'll have a game
of cricket'. He came
back the next week
and we never got rid of
This year marks
Felder's second year as
president and he said
he was looking to step
down after this season.
"A new face brings
new challenges, but new
ideas as well," he added.

Pleasant summer weather over the
Christmas period saw more high scoring at
the Loxton Golf Club.
In stableford events, scores in the low forties
were required to win, with Ash Pfeiler 41, Jacob
Harris 43, Andrew Hume 43 and Petro Fournaros
44 all winning their events with high scores.
Lewis Cregan's 39 on Christmas Eve was the
only winning score in the thirties.
Peter Richardson continued the trend in last
week's par event, shooting an impressive plus-six,
while Steve Coombs' net 69 on a damp course last
Saturday was enough to win.
The round of the Christmas period belonged to
Andrew Hume, who played a brilliant round of 69
for a total of 43 stableford points on New Year's
Playing off a handicap of four, Hume was two
under the card after nine holes and continued in that
vein, coming home in 35.
He bogeyed two holes and birdied five. It was the
first time he had broken 70.
Other highlights were eagles by Peter Harman
and Brenton Chapman, both achieved on the fourth
