City give paceman a winning sendoff

What a six the best of my time at City
This was the heading in Mondays Northern Daily Leader, after our 1st Grade side rolled Souths for just 71 runs at Riverside 1 to complete a convincing win.
Our 1st Grade side lead by Simon Toyer battered first, after losing two early wickets Richie (I always think he looks good) O'Halloran 22 runs and Benny Semmler 24 runs steadied the ship and set a nice platform. Both batsmen gave the team a launching pad being only two down at the twenty over drink break. And Launch we did smacking 102 from the remaining twenty overs.

Tezza (I look just as good as Richie) Kampe 31runs had a ball, hitting the experienced bowling attack of Souths all over the park. His face lit up when ever he told the story of the massive six that he hit.
City finished with a match winning 154 runs.
The bowlers were not going to let Souths off the hook with all five bowlers Jack McVey, Tait Jordan, Simon Toyer, Dan Lawrence and Man of the Match Ben Semmler all taking wickets.
 The reason for the papers headline is Jack McVey is headed back to University in Newcastle. It was a perfect way for his team mates to give Jack a departing gift.
GOOOOOOOO last word must go to Peter Mead who said with a broad smile "we totally outplayed them in all aspects today" CITY
Jack you are truly a once in a generation cricketer. From everyone at City United "Thank-you"
