Three out of four, you have to be happy with that!

City had victories in 2nd, 3rd and 4th Grade against North's yesterday. Full match reports to follow. The most pleasing part of the results was that it was against strong opposition. The captain with the biggest smile was 2nd Grade Paul Fisher as his team did play well and a true team effort was needed to gain the victory.
3rd Grade under the direction of Peter {I just keep getting better) Mead continued on their winning way. 4th Grade under the captaincy of Timothy Skewes played the match of their season to get home against an experience and confident opponent.
The "big boys" need to regroup for their gigantic match of the season next week against Old Boys. It doesn't get any bigger than this match,-playing at No1 Oval, -playing under lights, -playing in City's Day/night uniform, -playing in front of a big supportive crowd and playing to stay in touch with the fourth place team of the competition.
GOOOOOOOO I am excited about the "big boys" match next weekend CITY
Is the glass half empty or half full?
In the mighty Fourth Grade side on Saturday young Tom Fitzgerald and Graham Schwenke were batting superbly and were building a very nice partnership. Our President jumped to his feet and said,"I will take a cool refreshing drink out to Tom and Graham."
He filled two cups with icy cold water and waited for the end of the over before he started running out to the middle. Our President took off as he didn't want to hold the match up for this unscheduled drink break Arms and legs going everywhere, he reached the thirsty batsman he handed over the cups only to realized that all the water had splashed out of both cups on his rush to get out the middle. Both batsmen looked at their empty cups with total despair.
GOOOOOOOO he didnt really think it through, did he? CITY

Truth From the mouths of Babes.

Just before my daughter went to bed I told her how the Cricket Test Match was starting tomorrow from Hobart. I told her "for the next five days I am going to sit in front of the television and watch every ball bowled"
A hour later, while passing her room I overheard her say. "Oh God if cricket is played in heaven please let there also be rain".
GOOOOOOOO don't you love them CITY

GOOOOOOO This one just made me Laugh CITY

Tezza one of City's best.

There are so many true gentlemen, just nice guys amongst this year’s playing group. One of them is Terry Kampe. Tezza is one of those players that you want on your team and to just be around. He was introduced to City by Paul Hagley where he started playing for City in fourth grade. Tezza was one of the major reasons why fourths made it's way through to the Grand Final. He is currently playing 3rd Grade with Peter Mead but he recently filled in as a late replacement for First Grade.
He has taken so many bowling attacks apart with his wide variety of strokes. He can also bowl that killer inswinger that has claimed so many wickets.

GOOOOOOOOO City’s gentleman of the week Tezza Kampe CITY

Don't worry boys she is back.

The little boys) in Fourth Grade was unbeaten till last Saturdays match. After the match the team held a discussion on where we went wrong. There was someone missing, a member of the team that was there through all our victories, but was missing on the day, this team member doesn’t bat or take wickets but she is very much part of the team. Marissa our dedicated scorer was our missing link. So watch out Souths Marissa is back for this weekend's match, the team is back to being full strength.

GOOOOOOO to all our City scorers, a big Thank You as you are very much part of the team CITY
On my way home I passed No 1 oval and thought I saw some City shirts. I pulled up and saw eight players hard at it with some fielding drills. It was the 1st Grade captain Dan Whale with other players from the 1st Grade squad. They have been doing extra training each Tuesday afternoons for some time now.
1st Grade is always well represented at our main training night on Wednesdays, if any grade deserves success on the paddock it is our 1st Grade side.
GOOOOOOOO they made me tired just watching them
