Timmy and Paul.

Yes you might say that “sugar wouldn't melt in Timmy’s mouth”

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      I will not identify the fieldsman (Paul Lawrence) as what is about to happen, is so mean.
 Here you see Timmy giving one of his team mates some catching practice before we head off to field.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    All going well.

 Then naughty Timmy started to think what if I hit the ball just out of his reach..

With a grin and a chuckle Timmy pushed it wide and you can guess what happened. With his teammate landing heavily on the turf all you could hear was Timmy laughing.
Well that twelve months ago, now fast forward to last Saturday.

Sorry Brett but our Paul's catch was a better one.
Paul was opening the bowling in 3rd Grade and was keeping it tight when a return catch has hit back at him. Paul from a standing start (no he din't fall over) dived forward full length and with only millimeters to spare was able to scooped his fingers under the ball. As Richie would say "WHAT A CATCH!!!". The first of his team mates that were there to celebrate with Paul was Timmy.  Timmy like Paul has moved up a grade and by all reports Timmy is working really hard on his glove work, as well as his footwork and concentration and is doing a outstanding job for his team with the gloves. GOOOOOOOOOO that catching practice did pay off CITY

"CITY" boys rewarded.

Earlier in the week it was announced that City’s own Ryan Hansen has been selected in the Central North's U17s team to play in the Country Carnival at Raymond Terrace in a few weeks. While later in the week it is announced that Jack McVey has been selected in the Tamworth’s First XI to play in this Sunday’s War Veterans Cup clash against Gunnedah at Wolseley Park in Gunnedah.
Well done boys!
A Friday little story.          Sugar goes to visit his grandmother and he brings his two friends with him. While he's talking to his grandmother, Richie and Scotty start eating the peanuts on the coffee table, and finishes them off. As they're leaving, Scotty says to Suger's grandmother, "Thanks for the peanuts." She says, "Yeah, since I lost my dentures I can only suck the chocolate off 'em."

Up-date on Mark Fisher.

On Saturday Mark was playing First Grade and was really enjoying the experience until while fielding he messed with Tezza Kampe. Both boys collided with Mark coming off second best and was helped from the field, on the other hand Tezza jumped to his feet with no ill effects from the mishap. I rang Mark on the Sunday to see how he was feeling, "sore ribs and shoulder, bruised knee, abrasions to lower leg, felt like I have been hit by a truck". Mark Said.
Hoping to see you back at training on Wednesday, Mark.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO boys, might be best to call next time CITY

City own Ryan Hansen has been selected in the Central North's U17s team and will now play in the Country Carnival over three days at Raymond Terrace in a few weeks.

Don't forget training and selections tomorrow, Wednesday commencing at 5pm at the Riverside 2 practice nets.

The cry of CITY CITY CITY rang out throughout Tamworth.

The cry of CITY CITY CITY rang out throughout Tamworth on Saturday night. After City started it's season with victory in all three grades played. 
Ryan and Tait, just two of City's young guns.
The biggest thrill was our 1st Grade side, starting the season so well. With a young side and so many players with limited 1st Grade experience, City took control of the match early with a wonderful opening partnership from Dan Whale (21) and Ryan ( 56 as well as the umpire's man of the match) Hansen. Harrison Kelly contributed with a handy 18 runs, Dan Lawrence 12 and Sam Brown 17 n.o. From there City built a defendable total of 154 runs. The bowling were tight as West wickets fell continually throughout their innings. Dan Lawrence bowling figuers were 3 wicket for 17 off 6 overs, Tezza Kampe 1 wicket for 7 runs from his 4 overs and Dan (give us a bowl) Whale picked up 4 wickets from his 7 overs for 22 runs.
We will celebrate our three wins until Wednesday, when it's back to training and selections for our next match against Souths. Our amazing 4th Grade side will commence their season this coming Saturday as well.
