What happen in the month of February at City

3rd Grade Team for the One-Day Final

The One-Day Final for 3rd Grade is set down for Riverside 3 starting at 10am. It's a 50 over match. Could all players please be at the ground by 9.30 am.

GOOOOOOOOOO good luck to our mighty 3rd Graders CITY


In the words of our President "They did us proud".

Peter Mead and his boys are the 2012/13 One -Day Premiers after victory in today's Final.
This makes it back to back One-Day Premierships for "The Mighty 3rd Graders".
The day started well with Peter winning the toss and sending Bective into bat. Bective lost two early wickets to run-outs, with one dismissal being a direct hit by Scotty Hurn.City bowlers used the conditions to the fullest. Fantastic fielding and catching resulted in regular wickets falling.Peter only needed to use three bowlers in Andy Jarrett, Glen Ryan and Terry Kampe, all three bowlers bowled beautiful line and length. Bective were dismiss for a small total of 30 runs.
Our two Ballentine's in Ben and Matt got us off to a confident start in the run chase. After the dismissal of Ben, Brett Walsh came to the crease and quickly ran down the very small total.
This victory was well deserved as this City side had only lost one of their ten one-day matches through the season.
The 2012/13 One -Day Premiership team is.
Peter Mead (C), Cory Callcott, Matt Ballentine, Josh Bennie, Ben Ballentine, Andy Jarrett, Graham Schwenke, Scotty Hurn, Glen Ryan, Brett Walsh, Terry Kampe, Tom Fitzgerald. Special recognition must be made of Rob Mills, Lochlan Cooke and John Miskle. Three squad members who were not able to play in today's Final but are very much part of the team.
GOOOOOOOO what more can I say but CITY CITY CITY CITY Saturday,
There aren't any Wombles around here.


"Underground, overground, wombling free

The Wombles of Wimbledon Common are we
Making good use of the things that we find Things that the everyday folks leave behind" Unlike in Wimbledon there are no Wombles around Tamworth that can make use of the things we leave behind. With the final part of the season approaching and some celebrating at the grounds taking place, please ensure that your ground is left tidy, with all rubbish being disposed of. GOOOOOOOOO I just hope I'm not showing my age again. CITY

Victory song for City

As Peter Mead and his boys were walking off the field after winning the 2012/13 One –Day Final. Josh Bennie asked if City had a victory song. Well not yet, may be we could take the lead from the Australian Test team.
The song "Under the Southern Cross'' is sung by the players of the Australian cricket team after each victory.
"Under the Southern Cross I stand
A sprig of wattle in my hand
A native of my native land
Australia, you little beauty"
It is treated with reverence and respect by the players. At any one time there is a custodian of the song, whose honoured role it is to sing it and lead the others in singing it after a victory. As the keeper of the unofficial anthem retires, he anoints another to be the custodian.
The custodians so far have been:
Rod Marsh, passed it to Allan Border on retirement;
Border passed to David Boon when he took on the captaincy.
Boon passed the honour to Ian Healy when he retired.
Healy anointed Ricky Ponting when Healy retired.
Ponting gave the responsibility to Justin Langer when he became captain in 2004.
Langer appointed Michael Hussey in 2007 on his retirement.
Hussey has now passed it on to Nathan Lyon upon his retirement in January 2013.
GOOOOOOOOO I have heard a slightly different vision to the last line CITY

 Watch out Newcastle they are on their way.

A number of City players are either now living in Newcastle or are headed down that way shortly to further their education. Jack McVey, Ben Chew,
Michael Bellamy, Timothy Skewes to name a few. They will be travelling back when they can to play for City throughout the rest of the season.
It takes me back, to when I visited Newcastle
Driving down Hunter Street
In my hot FJ Holden
With chrome-plated grease nipples
and double reverse twin cam door handles
Sitting eight abreast in the front seat
And we would lean out the window
And say real cool things to the sheilas on the footpath
Like uhhh.... 'G'day'
GOOOOOOOOOO Don't you ever let a chance go by O Lord. Don't you ever let a chance go by CITY

Thank you to our partners and family from the cricketers.

Thank you to all our families for your support throughout the season.


Cory Callcott “Keep the bird dirty” referring to not shining the kookaburra side of the cricket ball.




From Tezza Kampe “When I signed up, I signed up to play for City United not a particular Grade”. Referring to Tezza playing three different Grades in as many weeks.

From David Smith when asked how he batted when playing 3rdGrade on Saturday “I just kept swinging hard”.


I am sure all our School teachers we have within our club would be able to relate to this little story.

The teacher had asked the class to write an essay on a cricket match. With only a few minutes left, one boy had written nothing. Suddenly, he looked up at the clock, grabbed his pen and scribbled something on the paper. The teacher read out his essay: 'No play today. Due to rain".
'GOOOOOOOO keep the bird dirty CITY

There is only one "Sugar" and we just love him being around.

On Saturday our regular captain Peter Mead was away so Johnny "Sugar" was appointed captain for the day for 3rd Grade, the team at that stage had been unbeaten in all nine of their One-day matches. Johnny was very excited to win the toss on the second attempt (but that's another story). He elected to bat first and quickly ran off and started to pad up to open the batting until the boys told him to settle down and suggested that he could bat at four.

At the 35th over mark City had only 145 runs on the board and still with 5 overs available to bat, (SEE PICTURE) you see Sugar here discussing with Tezza Kampe whether he should declare the innings. Tezza was quick to point out to Sugar that it was not one of his best ideas.

GOOOOOOOOOOO we lost the match but Sugar was quick to point out it was not his fault. CITY
