On the bus with Sugar.

Sugar was travelling on a bus when a woman hopped on at the next stop with her baby. The bus driver says to her: ''Ugh, that's the ugliest baby I've ever seen!''

The woman was crying as she walked to the rear of the bus to where Sugar was sitting.

Sugar thought to himself “That was a mean thing to say “.

The woman sits down next to Sugar and says : ''The driver just insulted me and my baby!''

Sugar looks at the baby and replies: ''You go up there and tell him off. Go on, I'll hold your monkey for you.''

All City United’s perpetual trophies need to be returned, please. They can be handed into your captain on Saturday or at training next Wednesday.

GOOOOOOOOOO you good thing CITY

The young and the old of it

Our terrific 3rd Grade side won the toss and elected to bowl first, in their two-day match against West on Saturday.
Lachlie Cooke scored a beautiful 86 runs.
In a wonderful bowling and fielding display, Wests were dismissed for a total of 88 runs in the 28th over.
Best of the bowlers were Danny Malpe 3/24 off his 7 overs. Scott Hurn was not far from the action taking two catches, one of which was a amazing full length forward dive to complete a caught and bowl. Scotty ended up taking 2/32 off 9 overs. The captain of the side Trent Balderston then joined the action taking 4/3 off his 2.2 overs.
Then it was City's turn to bat and we ended the day in a strong position being 4 for 228 off 57 overs.
Best of the batsmen were Lachlie Cooke 86 runs and Tom Fitzgerald 74 runs N/O.

Could Tom be the first City player to score a century?



Neil Cooke being 73 runs N/O ( could Neil beat Tommy as City first Century maker);
 While over at our Forth Grade side, City won the toss and elected to bat first.
After their first allotted 40 overs City ended with 5 for 128 runs.
With Neil Cooke being 73 runs N/O, Mark Chew our Fourth Grade wicketkeeper batsman made 22 runs.
In reply Wests are  4/110 off their 40 overs.
All bowlers bowled nice and tight with Neil Cooke taking 1/15 off 8 overs, Russell Pitt has 1/21 off 8 overs,  Noah Pitt is looking for more wickets but has 1/18 off 4 overs at this stage and City's war horse Ron Benjamin has 1/21 from his 4 overs.
Our quiet spoken secretary of City United Nikki. Told me after hearing of the results from the weekend.
“3rds already have 1st innings points and 4th Grade look to have it in the bag. Go City!!!”
GOOOOOOOOOO  Nikki has said it all CITY

Little parcels from above.

Watch out Phil here comes another one!!!!!
With the wet weather cancelling all turf matches on Saturday the spot light was on our 3rd and 4th Grade teams. Both City Grades performed outstandingly well with a detail account from their matches tomorrow.

Phil Hood who is usually the scorer for our 2nd Grade side took the opportunity to Score for 3rd Grade. There was a number of City supporters down there watching all set up under the only tree at Chauvel Park, when we noticed Phil throwing his finished apple core away on to the ground. Big David Smith said to Phil “That will be $200 fine for littering Phil”.

Phil replied “I’m trying to entice the birds from this tree, as they keep sh**ting on the score book and me”
GOOOOOOOOOO the hazards of being a Scorer CITY
