Listen to some of the audios from four of our players post the Ford Trophy victory over the Wellington Firebirds on Saturday at Mainpower Oval.

  • Canterbury captain Andrew Ellis on winning The Ford Trophy for the first time in 11 years, with a broken thumb. Canterbury has now won the one-day trophies in both the men’s and women’s competition this season, Canterbury Magician Frances Mackay also playing the women’s Final with a broken thumb. Was it a lucky break?
  • Canterbury batsman Peter Fulton talks about breaking the New Zealand List A record for the fastest century in domestic One-Dayers, his 50-ball milestone beating Brendon McCullum’s 52-ball knock for the Otago Volts against the Aces in 2007/08. The superb match-winning effort was at the 38-year-old’s home ground of Mainpower Oval, Rangiora, and was also the highest List A score of his long career (List A debut 2001/02)
  • Canterbury batsman and BLACKCAP Henry Nicholls talks about batting alongside Fulton in their commanding 117-run stand for the third wicket, both players on their home turf as products of Canterbury Country whose headquarters is Mainpower Oval in Rangiora
  • Jack Boyle, who received his Canterbury debut this season, talks about the thrill of helping break the Canterbury title drought at his first campaign. Twenty-year-old Boyle is also a Canterbury Country local and before making the side this summer was a recipient of the Peter Fulton Scholarship – a Fulton mentoring initiative to develop promising players in Canterbury’s country areas.
