The duck is back.

The Fourth Grade mascot from last season Duckie is back for another summer of supporting his beloved 4th Grade side. He has spent the colder months of winter up north, hanging out with a noisy mob of Magpie Geese, Duckie reported they were the most unruly flock of birds he had ever been with.
If you look closely you may be able to see him up the back.

 GOOOOOOOOO We love to have you back duckie CITY

A important message for all.

     You can’t play until you have paid. Less than three weeks and only two more training sessions before the season commences.
      A minimum amount of $65 must be paid before you can take the field, due to the new insurance policy from NSW Cricket.
      Kathy Lawrence as our treasurer has done a terrific job in requiring only a slight increase in fees this season.
Our playing fees this season are as follow- Senior$260,                         Student$190,                                                           
                                       4th Grade Senior $190,             4th Grade Student $165.
       All new players to the club will receive a City United club shirt once they have paid their fees.
     All playing members, once you have paid your fees you will receive a City United training singlet.
BUT THERE IS STILL EVEN MORE!!!!!!!! (no not a set of kitchen knives but:)
      All playing members, if you have paid your fees in full before our Christmas Party you will be in the draw for THREE that’s THREE chances of having half your fees refunded back to you.
      Kathy would prefer all payments are by direct deposit in to City bank account ANZ ,BSB 012830 account 208227482. But if you are like me, and you pay by cash it must be with a smile.
GOOOOOOO I have paid up and are ready to go with CITY

City v's City.

    The 1st grade preseason match against Armidale City United (our sister club) was a huge success. It was hard to tell our two clubs apart with similar names and the same Gold and Maroon club colours. A big thank you must go to Steve Butler and his Armidale team for making their way down the highway. The camaraderie amongst the players was great to see.  
      After the match a good crowd turn up at the Tamworth City Bowling Club for a BBQ and a quiet cold drink before the Armidale boys travelled home.
     The match proved to be a great hit out for all players involved. City batsmen amongst the runs were Scott de Weymarn with 37, Chris Langston 18, our Captain courageous Dan Whale 45 N.O., Simon Toyer 13, and Dan Lawrence 26.
    The bowling saw Jake Philp having only 25 runs taken from his seven overs, Jack McVey 33 runs from his 6 overs, Ben Semmier 1 for 19 off his 8 overs and Dan Lawrence Man of the Match 4 for 36 off his 8 overs.
    Our own Tait Jordan 2 for 9 off 5 overs and Andy Jarrett 1 for 39 off 7 overs bowled well for their Armidale cousins. For the record books Armidale got home with three overs to spare. A return match has already been pencilled in. A very big thankyou must go to Nikki, Kathy, Phil, and Paul for all their hard work throughout the day.  
The new 1st grade water cooler although a little expensive looked stunning.
GOOOOOOOO they stole our colours and our name and our players CITY
