Hearts announce summer squad, sponsor

Hearts announce summer squad and Mortgage Supply Company as sponsor

MEDIA RELEASE
Friday, 16 November 2012
The Auckland Hearts commence their 2012/13 season on November 23 and have announced their summer squad of 14 players for the season.
The Hearts had a stellar season in 2011/12, picking up the one day title and making the final of the twenty20 competition, and will be wanting to repeat that kind of form when they face the Otago Sparks in the first round of competition next weekend.

With the emphasis on build-up to the Womens One Day World Cup next February in India the format for the season has seen a change to two one day games and one twenty20 match per round.

Something that hasn't changed from last season though is the support of The Mortgage Supply Company who will be sponsoring the Hearts and women's cricket for another season. The Mortgage Supply Company provide top quality advice on mortgages and insurance and are looking forward to being closely involved with the Hearts and women's cricket once more.

Director Dave Windler expressed his excitement about the sponsorship.

"Last season was a great start to the partnership and we're thrilled to be involved with Haidee and the Hearts in their campaign this year as well as giving our support to women's cricket. We'll be cheering the Hearts on and hoping that they can make it another season to remember."

Hearts coach Haidee Tiffin has been busy working hard with the squad in the pre-season and has set her sights on bettering the success of last season.

"The main goal is to win both titles this season and we will also look to continually improve, working hard for each other and growing as players."

The Auckland Hearts summer squad of 14 players is as follows:

Sarah Carnachan
Rosie Cox
Samantha Curtis
Lauren Down
Maddy Green
Paula Gruber
Georgia Guy
Holly Huddleston
Arlene Kelly
Regina Lili'i
Victoria Lind (C)
Roz McNeil
Katie Perkins (VC)
Megan Tremaine

Max Rashbrooke: Review - The NZSO And Nature

This was a lovely, varied concert with an obvious theme based on the natural world. It kicked off with Mendelssohn's sparkling Hebrides Overture, which had a wonderfully taut spring right from the start, and great colour from the woodwinds, especially the clarinets. More>>

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.
