A Friday story

Our three musketeers were living together in a flat when the next door neighbors had a baby. Unfortunately, the little baby was born with no ears. When they arrived home from hospital the parents invite our three musketeers to come over and see their new baby.
Ritchie and Scotty reminded Sugar that the poor baby was born without any ears. 
"I promise not to mention his ears at all," said Sugar.
At the neighbor's home, Ritchie leaned over the crib and touched the baby's hand. He looked at its mother and said, "Oh, what a beautiful little baby!"
The mother said, "Thank you very much."
Scotty then said "This baby has perfect little hands and perfect little feet. Why... just look at his pretty little eyes! Did his doctor say he can see well?"
The Mother said, "Why, yes... his doctor said he has 20/20 vision."
Sugar paused and then said, "Well, that's a damn good thing, cause he sure as hell can't wear glasses!"

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO all the best for tomorrow, Gentlemen CITY

Looking at the teams to play Norths.

David will be helping the club out on Saturday
Yes, we have thousands of players out the first week and this has resulted in players going up/down, round and about. It does give an opportunity for players to shine in the higher grade and for them to play with players they would not normally play with.
In 1st Grade we have both Brett Walsh, Charlie Kelly and Paul Fisher all be given an opportunity to experience 1st Grade once again.
While we have Scotty Hurn and Luke Dennis who are great mates, they will be giving their all for Peter Mead in 2nds.
In 3rd Grade we have the father and son Robbie and Brody Gregg. Well, well, well looks who is filling in???? it David Smith I am sure Smithy will be sore and sorry come Sunday but it will be wonderful to walk onto the park with him.
4th Grade are always the grade that is most affected with the higher player changers.  Anthony has almost a different team come the second week. The young man with the big heart Joey Mead will be taking to the field for the first time in City colours. As well Lachlan Cooke is playing with his younger brother Josh while Neil is away the first week. In a nice jester the selectors have left Lachlan in 4th’s for the second week so the three can take to field together Neil, Lachlan and Josh in the second week.
GOOOOOOOOOOO the teams may have some new names in them but the club spirit is strong and excitment is abound CITY

Our Sean keeps the First Graders out of the paper.

 Sean with his teammate Paul
If you saw Monday’s Northern Daily Leader you would have seen that our own Sean Hancock was front and centre with a photo of him playing a wonderful cover drive. With  the three First Grade games stories all around him, Sean was the only photo shown, doing his stuff. Sean's start to the season has been magical, his captain Peter Mead told me “Sean is our best batsman at the moment, his is striking the ball so well and his shot section is spot on.”
Sean scored a 49 against Wests in the first round and then backed that up with a nice 78 against Souths. 
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO keep working hard there Sean CITY
