Words cannot express the appreciation and thanks

Words cannot express the appreciation and thanks, we at City have for Kathy Lawrence and Nikki Hansen.
They have over the past few years, taken City United to new heights, in the words of the President of the TDCA Richard Bullock “City United has become the best run cricket club in Tamworth.”

The endless hours of work these two ladies do for our club throughout the season is truly incredible.

An acknowledgement must also go to their husbands and families to allow both our wonderful ladies to do their jobs, Paul Lawrence who is also a Vice President of City and Steve Hansen have both given their support to their wife throughout the season.

I know our own President has continually said “These two ladies have more runs on the board then any City batsmen I have seen. Kathy and Nikki are the driving force behind our great club.”

Talking of our President, he and his wife are trying to set up a new password for their computer. Our President said with great pride let’s put my batting average for this season.
"His wife falls to the ground laughing because on the screen it says, "Error. Not enough numbers."  GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO CITY

It is time to say Thanks.

The season for most of us is coming to an end and it's time to start thanking some outstanding members of our club who have contributed to our enjoyable season. Always with a smile on his face Johnny "Sugar" Miskle , Johnny took on the club's role as training equipment coordinator. John has done an amazing job being responsible for all City United training equipment as all as setting up and locking up the Cricket nets for our training sessions. John is the first to training and the last to leave every week. 
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO one of the many hard workers at CITY

“I am here to help out my dad”

Joey Mead is playing in the North West States PSSA Boys Cricket Championships.
Due to work commitments Patrick Dwyer was a late pull-out from 1st Grade on Saturday, meaning the boys only had 10 players.  A SOS message was sent out far and wide “we needed a fieldsman at 1st Grade.” Our President answered the call and waddled onto the field to the applause and laughter from the 1st Graders.
After an over of fielding the Captain Peter Mead had seen enough of the fielding of our President, he looked around for another replacement for our President. On the side line was young Joey Mead, he too had answered the SOS.
Joey was proudly wearing a City shirt that was three sizes too big for him, he had grass stains on his white trousers from the morning Primary School match that he had played.
At the end of the over our President went out to Joey on the side line where Joey said  “I am here to help out my dad” with that he ran onto the field leaving our President thinking we could not have found a better fieldsman for our 1st Grade side.
This week Joey is playing for the North West in the States PSSA Boys Cricket Championships. The carnival is played at The Entrance. Joey will spearhead the attack for his young team. Peter Mead is also the Coach of this Team and we at City, wish Peter and Joey all the best for the week of cricket ahead.

GOOOOOOOOOOOO where we play for the love of it CITY

Dan the Man

Dan's figures were amazing 5 for 21 off 8 overs
The headlines in today’s Northern Daily Leader reads “Dan the man as City United puts the skids under Souths.”
The article is of City’s 1st Grade side amazing bowling performance on Saturday against the best batting line up in the competition.  It continues –“It only took 15 overs for City United’s Dan Lawrence to cause a storm against South Tamworth.”
The afternoon started with Jack McVey bowling Souths Captain Jose Crowe for just seven runs. Before Dan got Troy Osborne to shy one to City’s captain courageous Peter Mead .
Then both Jack and Dan unleashed mayhem on Souths middle order leaving them 7 for 47. Peter Mead said of his two bowlers “The boys were bowling exceptionally well out there today. Both Jack and Dan were bowling full and letting the ball do the work perfectly.”

Jack has been the form bowling in Tamworth this season
Dan was interviewed by the Leaders reporter and although his own personal figures were amazing 5 for 21 off 8 overs he unselfishly praised his opening partner in Jack. Jack has been the form bowling in Tamworth this season, taking plenty of scalps in both Grade and Representative cricket.   
Dan said of Jack “It good to have Jack down the other end. He bowls maidens and causes a lot of pressure, he probably deserves some of my wickets today.”

Growing up in the country you play a lot of sport
fun thing to do with mates, using a bat and ball of course

and here at City there is still one match yet to be played,
So bring with you your goals, and leave your doubts away
Whether you think you can or can’t, you certainly will find
Cause we have captains that never say die

They will give you the space to reach for the sky.
We play south's that are tough and they are good
But we will play to our best and that's all you can ever ask
As little do they know we are ready to kick some a**.  CITY
