4th Grade v Old Boys at Minor League 2, 27/11/10

Old Boys 141 (Tim Hunt 2-35, Max Cullen 1-16 & Neil Cooke 1-18 both off 8 overs) defeated City United 133 (Tim Hunt 32, Adam Ballantine 23, Neil Cooke 15, Tait Jordan 13) by 8 runs
After losing by 10 runs chasing last week, heartbreak again for the 4ths with a loss by 8 runs with an over to spare. A great bowling performance to restrict Old Boys to a catchable target and at 3-69 they were right in the game. A collapse saw all hope gone at 9-107 but someone forgot to tell the No 11, young Payter that. He might still be growing but his heart is big enough. He pushed singles whilst Ballantine swung lustily and they pair added 26 for the last wicket and that agonisingly close loss. Well played 4th Grade. There has to be a win just around the corner.

The Sundries, Dates & Details Page

The temptation is always to read the latest news on main page of the City United website but visitors should make the Sundries, Dates & Details page at least as an important stop. Here you will usually find the details which may be missing from the front page in order to be brief. As an example, did you know you can find the following on the S, D & D page?
  • monthly meeting reports ... if you don't turn up at least you can see what was decided;
  • quizzes;
  • City United's rego form can be downloaded for you to print
  • the City Calendar which links you to our Google Calendar to see upcoming events
  • a reading list of recommended cricket books for you to read (always looking for more suggestions Rod)
  • a 7 day weather forecast
  • and of course links to all the other City pages
