The moments I cherish

Saturday will see us commence the second part of the season, seven matches remain before the semi-finals. Five One-Dayers and two 2 Day matches. There is so much cricket yet to be played and with so many competition points still up for grabs, anything is possible.
With the lost of seven 1st Graders from last season, this year was always one of rebuilding throughout the grades. Added to this the large injury toll the club has had and the large number of players being unavailable because of other committments. I am so proud of the captains and players from City United, I beleive that we have turned the corner with players now finding the feet in their higher grade and with them now feeling that they deserve their position within the team.
Starting this weekend lets continue to have fun and enjoy this wonderful game and play some good cricket. Bective East watch out City is on the way.  
My most enjoyable time of the afternoon, sitting back, relaxing and chatting with my team mates at City while I’m waiting for my turn to bat. Love it.
GOOOOOOOOO Us smokers are a dying breed CITY

It does not get any better than this!!!!

Michael Clarke’s Ashes heroes have completed a 5-0 series win.
Nathan Lyon led them in the team song, Under the Southern Cross I Stand , in the middle of the SCG soon after play, rather than simply in private in the dressing room as the players would usually sing it.
''Whenever he wants to sing it, we do as we're told,'' skipper Michael Clarke said. ''He wanted to do it in the middle of the wicket so we happily obliged.''
A lethal cocktail of fast bowling, positivity with the bat, playing with freedom and, most of all, a renewed sense of fun - concocted under the leadership of coach Darren Lehmann and Clarke - was behind the huge victory.
The difference between the two teams was enormous. The margins in the five matches were 381 runs, 218 runs, 150 runs, eight wickets and, finally, on Sunday, 281 runs. Alastair Cook and his men simply had no answer.
''I think we've played the brand of cricket that Australians expect and that we expect as a group. I think that's been pretty evident watching from the sideline,'' said Haddin, who after a brilliant individual campaign was pipped for the man of the series award by Mitchell Johnson.

Brad Haddin and man of the series Mitchell Johnson celebrate Australia's 5-0 clean sweep at the SCG yesterday.
While back at CITY our short Christmas break has come to a end. With training and selections on Wednesday for our first match back being a One -Dayer against Bective East this Saturday the 11th January. Fourth Grade are still on their summer holidays and will not return till February 1. GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO just for the love of it CITY
