On summer holiday's

Our Club’s treasurer is taking her family on a three weeks cruise. While Kathy is away Mark “Pup” Fisher is in charge of the club’s finances.
I know he is very keen to collect as many fees as possible in Kathy’s absence. So please see Mark to hand over your cash and he will fix you up with a receipt or your captain will also collect any money on Saturday. Fees can also be automatically place in City’s bank account.

I know the Paul Lawrence is looking forward to the Cruise. I can just imagine the stories that will be told by Kathy on their return.

 Paul was aboard their cruise ship, he was not impressed by the lively jazz band basting their horns in the restaurant of the ship. When his waiter comes around, Paul asks, “Will they play anything I ask?”
“Of course, they will sir!” replies the waiter.
Paul was quick to reply “Then tell them to go play shuffleboard, on the top deck then!”

 One one starlit night Paul was on the top deck with his family aboard the cruise ship where everyone was having a great party, when a beautiful young girl fell overboard. Immediately there was our own Paul in the water to her rescue. They were both pulled from the freezing, treacherous waters. The captain was grateful as well as astonished that the older man performed such an act of bravery. And that night a luxurious banquet was given in honour of the cruise elderly hero. The captain called Paul forward to receive an award and was asked to say a few words.
He said, “First of all, I’d like to know which one of my family pushed me!!!!!!!!”

Sorry Simon but I could not let this Photo be forgotten.

Our own 1st Grade captain Simon Toyer has his stumps rattled in last Friday night's Twenty20 season opener. We have all had it happen but not too many of us having it blasted over the back page of the newspaper. I thought his technique looks good but this is from me, someone that has just had two golden ducks.
Simon will be leading our 1st Grade team into battle this Saturday in a strong position, he will be hoping for early wickets from the best bowler in Tamworth, Jack McVey and his opening partner Ben Semmler. 
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO or should we call Jack an all-rounder now CITY

Two centuries in two day and then a solid 21 runs in the final to see the boys home.

City United's own Ryan Hansen had three very big days, being part of the Under 19's Central North Zone  team in the Country Championships played in Coffs Harbour over three days. On Friday Ryan opened the batting and scored an century (105) again the Central Coast team. On Saturday he score his second century (109) in as many days against Western.
In the final against a very strong Newcastle side Ryan got the team off to a solid start with a nice 21 runs before he was run out. Congratulations to Ryan for his double century and being part of this victorious Central North team.
We at City are so pleased to have another senior player being represented on the big stage, it just proves once again if you have the talent and dedication that any City player can make it.
GOOOOOOOOOOOOOO I would of been a bit slow getting down the other end too on the third day too after scoring two centuries the days before CITY

Jack McVey is another City player who has played at the highest representative level over pass few years  Jack shown here, again toiled hard and helped bowl Northern Inland to victory over Hunter Valley on Sunday with two wickets.
GOOOOOOOOO there is a pathway for young players to the highest level of cricket at City CITY

Up-date of the weekends matches

Brett Walsh scored a handy 13 on Saturday
 Our top three grades all had similar starts to their matches, all three grades batted first, all three grades knew this match would be a test for our sides, all three grades found themselves in early trouble. Before our three grades stood their ground from early loses and through some personal achievements with the bat were able to post a competitive score.  In 1st grade at one stage we were 6 wickets down for 40 runs. Until Ben Semler 69 runs and Peter Mead 64 runs put on a wonderful partnership. Brett Walsh (13) was able to keep the score rolling on, allowing City to post a competitive 170. Old Boys are also in early trouble being 3 down for 32 runs. Game on next week.
Paddy with a amazing 94 runs.

 2nd grade were in major trouble 7 for 34 and were hoping just to get to 50. But Paddy Dwyer had other ideas. Through patience and skill he completely dominated the bowling attack and just fell short of his century being given out for a amazing 94 runs.


Our 3rd grade side were not much better being 4 wickets for 26 runs.
Eddie Beattie (15) and Graeme Schwenke (24) halted the fall of wickets with a nice partnership. In the field Liam Dunn was the pick of the bowlers and Ryan Woods bowled himself to a stand still.

Our 4th grade juggernaut continues on it's merry way and have Old Boys 8 wickets down for 103 after their first 40 overs in reply City are 5 down for 113 runs at the end of their 40 overs. Neil Cooke bowled well for his four wickets with Liam Rogers scoring a nice 31 runs and the ever reliable Russell Pitt complied a 33 runs innings.

GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO the boys did us proud CITY
