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

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
