It just isn’t cricket.

In shocking news a former City United player Peter Lalor was involved in a disgusting incident on Saturday in Newcastle.
Peter was a junior at City, while moving through the grades he was part of a 2nd Grade premiership win for City. Peter was playing 1st grade when he moved to Newcastle. His Father Steve Lalor also played for City and recently has become a district umpire.

Peter now plays in Newcastle for the Jewells Tavern Beavers and was bowling against a Merewether at Jesmond's Heaton Park when he was struck over the head with a bat by a rival player on Saturday.

Captain Peter Lalor counts himself lucky to be alive after the incident left him with nine stitches and a concussion
"It was a shock to everyone," Lalor said. "It must have been a brain snap."
The game was abandoned and Lalor was taken by ambulance to hospital bleeding from his head.
CT scans later cleared him of serious damage and the 33-year-old is expected to be released from hospital on Monday.
Police are investigating the incident.
Peter has been with the Jewells Tavern club for the past eight seasons but has played first-grade district cricket for Waratah-Mayfield.  
All at City wishes Peter a speedy recover.

I spoke to Phillip Hood through the week after having a knee replacement on Monday morning. He was feeling a bit down until I told him although City won three of the four matches on Saturday no-one or no team was able to meet the challenge that he laid down for the Saturday’s matches. That brought a smile to his face.

GOOOOOOOO It will not be long before we hear Phil yelling out from the sideline to beloved City teams CITY
