This Weekend 7/8 Feb


As the finals get closer, each game gets more and more important. Just four weeks until finals actions starts at the Neg.


The First XI has a must win game away against Murrumbeena, Cristian Hollingworth gets his first chance in the one’s lets hope he does well. Raj Bala is out again with general soreness and is looking the resume via the 3rd XI.

The seconds will be keen to bounce back from a loss to Mentone last week and are at home to Murrumbeena. Dave “The Model” Goodey has been promoted after his big ton in the 4th’s and Pete Scoulidis get his first run in the seconds. Where Dave goes so does Gemma, the 2nd’s officially have a team manager this week, looking forward to a great arvo tea!

The thirds are at Lord vs Melbourne City, note this is a one day game starting at 12.30pm. Srikanth back in after a 3 month trip to India.

The fourth XI are stepping back in time with Steve “Old Man River” Yeats taking charge, they are also playing Melbourne City. Josh Meyer comes in for his first game of senior cricket due to his baseball committments. The Pres Patrick O’Shannessy also takes to the field after an extended lay off with Ebola, Pat picked this up in the jungles of South America.


The A grade are away vs Burnley, many great battles between these two sides over the years. Another new skipper this game Niraj Edwards, this team has had more skippers than Tim Dodgson has had Big Mac’s. Looking at the team list one would be excused for thinking we were rolling out the English national team.

The B Sunday are at Koornang vs EMT, MG Dodgson is vs sort of his old club (well half of it anyway) i’m sure he will be keen to notch up a win here. Some pretty decent inclusions also with Mayank,Raj,Sid all coming into the line up.

Also well done to the selection panel as i know there are many players missing with all the world cup matches starting next week.



The U-11 Gryphons are away to Mt Waverley

The U-11 Colts are at home vs Toorak Prahran

The U-13’s are at home vs Mt Waverley/Mayfield

The U-15’s are away vs Malvern


The U-11 Gold are at Lord #3 vs Glen Waverley, great come from behind win last week.
