With 3 rounds remaining in the 2022/23 season, Sam Konstas has already scored over 1000 runs in his first season for SDCC.
Sam became the first player to score 1000 runs in all grades for the Club in his first season with the Club. The previous highest aggregates in their first season with the Club were Phil Jaques (593 in 2nds + 223 in PGs = 816) and Jason Young (812 in 1sts) – both in 1996-97. He has also equalled the club record for most centuries in a season with 4, joining Les Johns (1985-86), Justin Kenny (1990-91), Matthew Bradley (1996-97), Grant Davies (2005-06), Phil Jaques (2005-06) and Jamie Brown (2015-16 & 2017-18). This is the second consecutive season that Sam has achieved both feats, having scored 1139 runs with 4 centuries last season for St.George.
