2019 Nitmiluk Cup 16/17 November

The annual Nitmiluk Cup and Nitmiluk Shield Community Cricket Competition was held over the weekend at Dr. Peter Short Oval in Katherine with 11 teams taking part in the Super 6s and Super 8s fixtures.

Teams from across the Top End came together for a very warm weekend of cricket with the Tony (TJ) Tilley Nitmiluk Shield awarded to the Community Division winning team and Nitmiluk Cup to play for in the Major Centres Division. 

The Timber Creek Bushturkeys were crowned the 2019 Nitmiluk Shield winners defeating Bad Company and in the Major Centre Division, playing for the Nitmiluk Cup, it was Team United who defeated the Katherine Camels by 24 runs.

NT Cricket would like to thank Marcus Rosas, the NT Government, Lord Taverners NT, Katherine Town Council and the Roper Gulf Regional Council for their support of the carnival. Thanks must also go to Alistair and Owen from Cricket Victoria who travelled up to assist with the carnival and conducted school clinics in the area.
