It was then time for the "Tait and Benny Show"

We travelled far and wide to ensure we had a team.
On Saturday the club had more player unavailable from it player roster than were available.  Credit must go to our four hard working captains, who up until game time were hitting the phones ensuring their team had enough players to take the field.

In the main match City's 1st Grade took a under strength but enthusiastic team onto the field against Souths.
City United were dismissed for 115, Captain Simon Toyer (52) and Ben Semmler (8) dug in and steadied things for City with a 49-run stand.
It was then time for the "Tait and Benny Show"
“Tait, that spell is the best I’ve seen him bowl,” Toyer said.“And Benny backed him up.”
They bowled the first 16 between them for only 30 runs with Jordan nabbing 2-7 and Semmler 1-17 (he finished 1-37).
After slumping to 4-38 Osborne and Hammond looked like they could take Souths through to stumps but then with about five overs to go Hammond was adjudged lbw trying to sweep Peter Mead.
Parkinson was then out lbw to Mead (2-9) in the second last over.
“In saying that I thought City bowled well.” the South's Captain, Leyden said.
“They’ll have Jack (McVey) back next week as well.” Leyden said.
Game on !!!!!!!!
