Peter and his men pulled the trigger and got home in a real nail bitter.

 City United finished off the season on the brightest note possible, toppling South Tamworth in a remarkable and dramatic final round clash at Riverside 2.
It was a game of recoveries with Souths fighting back from 7-47 to post 169.
City then looked in dire straits early at 6-39 with Ryan Hansen (21) the only one of the top six to make double figures but we then started to dig ourselves out our trouble.  Micheal Bellamy and Peter Mead (38) steadied things and got City back into it with a 64-run stand.
Peter told the NLD “We were able to find the boundaries and all of a sudden by doing that we got ourselves back into the game. The way Michael was batting I was confident if he could stay out there he could get us home.”

When Micheal was out for 91 City still needed 5 runs for victory. Jack (Call me a batsman now) McVey (10 not out) did a superb job batting at number 10 and staying out there for 15 overs welcomed Tezza Kampe who strode to the wicket. City had a couple of scares in getting the last few runs they needed but got there with Terry driving a four for the winning runs.
Michael Bellamy was the hero for City, hitting 91 and guiding us to within sight of victory.
 Micheal was the man of the moment on Saturday as he was a few seasons ago, shown here being carried off the ground after hitting the winning runs against Old Boys.  Micheal stepped it up on Saturday though, against the best bowling attack in country NSW Micheal played a amazing innings. I could not be happier for a City junior who has in recent seasons really worked hard on his batting. It all came together for him on Saturday with his proud parents there watching.

Richie O’Halloran was the main man with the ball for City on Saturday picking up both Skilton and Natty to finish with 2-34
GOOOOOOOOOOOOO more on the weekend results tomorrow at CITY
