A big thanks to Dubbo RSL Colts

Great weather, great cricket, friendships made, what more can you ask for.
In a article By Geoff Newling in today's Northern Daily Leader under the heading             City United blows cobwebs away with new-look side
Jack McVey lets fly against Dubbo RSL Colts
CITY United began its new season with a new skipper and some new faces when it went close to running down Dubbo RSL Colts at Chauvel Oval in Tamworth on Saturday.
The visiting Dubbo side made 5-204 in its 40 overs and then bowled out City United for 200 in a tense season opener for both clubs.
City United began its run chase well, with former skipper Dan Whale (33) and Ryan Hansen (38) putting on an opening stand of 71. Simon Toyer (28), Nick Blake (28) and new skipper Harrison Kelly (26) also got starts but Will Wolter was the destroyer, claiming 4-34 from his nine overs.
Harrison thought it was a good start for him and his new club.
City United has lost a half dozen of last year’s side and will campaign with a new-look, young side under the leadership of the former State Under 17 and 19 player.
Harrison, 18, thought his side bowled steadily. “Everyone did their own bit – played pretty well,” he said.
He thought Tait Jordan bowled well as did fellow medium-pacer Nick Blake. “Tait played 2nd grade last year but might play a bit of first grade,” he said. Nick didn’t play at all last season. They’re two good young players. Lochlan Cooke bowled some good leggies as well.”
Jack McVey also bowled tightly, his first five overs producing just nine runs. He eventually finished with 1-24 off his nine.
Our batting was also pretty good,’ Harrison added.
“The top five all got starts.” Harrison is looking forward to the challenge of skippering the side.
 "We’ve got another trial in Armidale next weekend and then the Bash For Cash here on the October long weekend".
            In the other match played on Riverside 4 other wise known as the postage stamp due to it being so small Dubbo scored 276 runs from their 45 overs and in reply City scored 227 runs from their 45 overs. Everyone enjoyed themselves with lots of sixes and fours being scored and not much running needed which everyone was grateful for.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO cricket was the winner on the day CITY
