Best bowling:    Tait Jordan 4/45 off 10 overs; Jack McVey 2/44 off 19 overs; Daniel Lawrence 2/54 off 10 overs
The 11 guys in the team spent the whole day in the field in the heat.  It was a mighty effort by the bowlers & fielders under the circumstances.  Thanks to young Brody Gregg who assisted in the field when the bowlers finally got a break after tea.  Next week we will have Simon, Ryan and Dan back in the team to get some runs on the board and hopefully chase down the big target.

The game is right in the balance at the moment with City trailing by just 20 runs at the half way point in the game.  The Pitt father & son combination have set up a great match with an unbeaten opening partnership of 122 runs.  City will be looking to take some early wickets next week and then continue with their good batting display.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOO it is about each batman batting for long periods, then victory is ours CITY
