The season that was during October.

Bits from October "12

Our own Scott de WEymarn received the 3 First Grade Best& Fairest points after his match winning 70 runs from 257 balls. He showed grit and concentration in his 80 overs spent at the crease. GOOOOOOOO there is no better feeling when you achieve what you set out to do, CITY

Anthony Fitzgerald was 4 th Grade's man of match. Anthony’s 138 runs (retired) was the clubs first century for the season, it was instrumental in batting West's out of the match. A great achievement Anthony.
GOOOOOOO there is still some runs in those old legs yet CITY

They don't take to the field, they don't take that winning wicket or that winning catch, they don't score the winning runs. But both our Kathy and Nikki are one of the main reason City is so successful.
GOOOOOOO and they attend more training sessions than most of us players CITY

Training this afternoon at 5pm Riverside 1.
If you train hard, you'll not only be hard, you'll be hard to beat CITY


On Saturday I was given out L.B.W. which reminded me of a dismissal of Johnny Miskle a few years ago.
Johnny received a fast ball which struck him in front. Though it was obviously L.B.W. he tried to feign an injury by dancing around in agony. He fell to the ground clutching his foot and the umpire came up and looked down at him.
'Can you walk?' he asked, solicitously.
Still lying on the ground holding his foot Johnny look up to the umpire, hesitated and then replied 'Yes.'
'Then walk back to the pavilion, mate. You're out!'
GOOOOOOOOO love your work Johnny CITY

Fielding training session


Our first fortnightly Tuesday fielding training session at No 1 Oval was a huge success (see pictures) with a good number of players attending. Our normal training session continues this afternoon at 5pm at the Riverside 2 practice cricket nets, all player are requested to attend. Training will be held every Wednesday throughout the season from 5pm. Teams will be selected after training and will be placed on the Web Site. It is the player’s responsibility to ensure they notify their captains of their unavailability after the teams have been selected.


GOOOOOOOO Not a cloud in the sky, got the sun in my eyes CITY


Our 1st grade scorer and manager Phillip Hood placed a challenge at the start of the season to the 1st Grade team which was “Whenever the team scored over 200 runs in an innings he would shout them a carton of refreshments” Well bugger me, first match into the new season and his 1st Grade side scored 211 off their 35 overs and Phil will be required to pay up.
GOOOOOOO I fell like one now CITY

Our web site is celebrating 40 000 hits since it was launched on the 16th October 2009. We have had inquires and feed back from visitors from all over the world.

A big thank you must go to everyone involved from the early days with the likes of Dan Mitchell, Peter Langston and Cory Callott to the current Web custodians.
