Have I got a story for you. The final one for this season but hoping all three boys will be back next season.

I would like to thank Richie, Scotty and Sugar for being good sports and allowing me to tell of their adventures throughout the season.

Our three City boys never made it out of the desert alive and were taken by God to the top of a cliff. God said to them that since they had been such great outstanding cricketers for City United that they would be given one chance to become anything that they desired.

 Richie thought about it for a minute and ran to the edge of the cliff, jumped into the air and shouted, "I want to be an eagle." Instantly Richie was changed into an eagle and soared off into the sunset.

Scotty was the second go and ran to the edge of the cliff, jumped into the air and shouted, "I want to be an owl." Instantly Scotty was changed into an owl and soared off into the sunset.

Lastly Sugar ran towards the edge of the cliff, tripped on a rock and as he was falling through the air, shouted, "Oh crap ..."

GOOOOOOOOOOO I can neither confirm or deny that all of the stories about our three City boys are 100% correct but one is assured they will have a great night tonight, see you there CITY

Have I got a story for you.

Our three City boys were lost in the desert and came across a magician. The magician was standing next to a kids slide. Our three City boys asked the magician if he had any water?

The magician answered by saying to our three boys, ''If you go down the kids slide and yell for a drink of your choosing and when you reach the bottom of the slide you will receive a huge glass of that drink.”

 Richie was the first to go and down the slide, yelling, ''lemonadeee!!!''  

Plop!  He landed with a huge glass of lemonade.

 After seeing this, Scotty was keen to be the second one to go down the slide yelling, ''Beerrr!!!''  Plop!  He landed with a glass of beer in his hand.

 Sugar could not contain himself and ran to the slide. Our Sugar slid down the slide yelling ''wheeeeeeeee!!!'''

 GOOOOOOOOOOOOO City’s Presentation Night is only two sleeps away CITY

Mum's are always your greatest fan.

The old No.1 Oval Grandstand can be seen here with the three gum trees behind it. Photo was taken in the floods of January 1910. Poto was taken from the Post Office.
In my younger days my mum would always come along and watch me play cricket. Although my mum didn't know anything about cricket, one Saturday afternoon at No1 Oval (when it had the old wooden Grandstand).
My mother was watching proudly (as mothers do) from the Grandstand. Next to her, a spectator turned to her.
'He's bowling well,' he said, 'But his length varies.'
'Don't be ridiculous,' interrupted my mum. 'He's five foot, eleven and a half and has been for agers!' "
GOOOOOOOOOO mum's you have to you love them CITY
