Round 3 & 4 Update

What a big weekend of cricket it is going to be at the Neg, starting tonight:

Friday Night

Heaps of Junior action with the U-11 Gryphons @ Victory Square vs Toorak/Prahran Red, always a real contest this one. The U-11 Colts are @ Lord #3 vs Toorak Prahran Blue, the U-13’s are @ East Caulfield Reserve vs Mt Waverley Gold and the U-15’s @ Wellington Reserve vs Mulgrave/Wheelers Hill.

Saturday Morning

The U-11 Gold is @ Lord #3 vs Murrumbeena be there early 8.15am sharp for photo’s.

The T-20 Blast gets underway at 9am @ Koornang Park, this season we have 3 teams entered and if you haven’t been down to the blast before get down and have a look. 120 plus kids out on Koornang Park all at once what a sight for a cricket lover. Anybody wishing to help out turning a snag or assist in the kitchen please get down there from 8.30am.



The First XI is @ Koornang Park vs Murrumbeena, after the retirement last week of Checka Krajewski this has opened up some more movement between the teams with both Alan “Budgie” Patey and Johnny Young being promoted to the ones after both making runs last week. Regan “Guava” Buckley and Danny Davies both looking to carry on their great form from last week.

The Second XI is just around the corner @ Murrumbeena, a replay of last years last round top of the table clash. The seconds welcome back Andrew “Bucky” Oldfield from the National Broadband Network and Tim “MG” Dodgson from a spin bowling course. The 2nds are also happy to welcome down from the one’s due to work reasons Bimal Shah for his first game in the seconds since the 2009 Premiership win.

The 3rds are @ Centenary Park and have Bentleigh 6/47 chasing 132 so this match is currently in our favour. Stuart “Stuey” Easton has been practising his wrong’un all week and is looking for a bowl and could be the difference.

The 4th’s are @ McAlister Oval vs Youlden Parkville, with Dave “the model” Goodey in cracking form, the negs should go in confident. It should be mentioned that the stand in VP Simon “Friar Tuck” Barker is desperate for a hit out in the centre, the middle order is not getting a look in at the moment.


Sunday A Grade are @ Loughnan vs Burnley we are chasing 265 with a full day to go get behind us on this one. Mayank “Mark” Srivastava due for another one of those “big” scores.

Sunday B Grade are @ Koornang Park vs the Melbourne Strikers, after a narrow last over loss last week i’m tipping the lads led by Geoff “i’m in a room of mirrors” Wilcock to make a big score and bring it home.


Great news for all that Grill’d Carnegie is back on board for this season as a sponsor, Grill’d really look after out juniors with plenty of awards and support. Look out for their banner at the ground and signs in the rooms. Make sure you get up the main street for a feed, they have great burgers. I recommend eating the Mightly Melbourne burger (actually 2 of them) what a feed!

Go Negs!
