The Onslow Premier Men’s side plays in Div 1 of the two-tier Premier Men's competition involving teams from across the Wellington region. This 6-side competition involves initially a full round robin of one-day games in the Ewen Chatfield Trophy. At the completion of the one-day competition the teams play two-day cricket, competing for the Pearce Cup (which concludes with a 3 day final at the Basin Reserve) whilst the 6 Div 2 teams battle it out in the Hazlett Trophy. There is compulsory promotion/relegation between the two Premier divisions at the conclusion of the season. The Premier team also competes in a mid-season T20 competition.
In the 2020/21 season the Premier team had a mixed bag of wins and losses, retaining their place in the top-6 competition for 2021/22.
The Premier Team, along with the Reserves Team, train twice a week from August through the summer. Sessions are run by coach Hamish Kyne and captain Sean O'Connor and are held at the club's home ground Nairnville Park, and at the Farnboro Indoor Centre at Onslow College. Trainings start at 6pm. If you would like to be involved in either of the top two teams then contact Hamish (027 299 1419) or Sean (022 191 4478).
