This Weekend

Another big weekend in cricket coming up after some big wins last weekend placing 3 of our senior sides in the top 2.


It all starts with the juniors tonight, the U-11 Colts and he U-13’s both @ home and the U-11 Gryphons and  U-15’s away. Tomorrow morning hots up and it will need to be with cool wet conditions predicted. The U-11 Gold after their big win last week against the Beena’s will be looking for back to back win’s @ Lord #3. The T-20 blast is on again with 100+ kids expected @ Koornang Park, get down and help out with the BBQ boys. Good luck to all our junior sides this weekend and do the club proud.


The 1st XI is taking the long trip to the GP track to meet Middle Park, it has been some years since we played Middle Park and they should be up and about after beating Moorabbin Park last weekend. Rondog “Guava” Buckley is at the helm (with Fenno in Bali on the beach) lets hope his spin bowling is not required!

The 2nd’s are at home on a fresh deck also to Middle Park, welcome back to Andrew “Bubbles” Morrissey up from the 4ths and last season’s keeper Lukas “Checkers Son” Krajewski.

The 3rd’s are down at the home of Cricket “Lord” Jomesh James back in the mix after 50+ runs in the 4th’s last week.

The 4th’s are down @ our 3rd ground Princes Park Oval #4. Dave Goodey in charge with the only dedicated team manager in the club Gemma T. What a support team he has down there. I have noticed another player back out of retirement on the team list with Rohan “Hero” Storey set to play.

The A grade is away again, they appear to be a permanent away team these days, this time they are out at Monash Uni. The boys fell short last week chasing 265. Lets hope there is a win this round.

The Sunday B Grade is @ KP again this week, i bet Ari Morton will be bowling from the Lyons st end this week after being hit for a towering six that cleared the pavillion last week, Ari had the last laugh with a LBW next ball. Big hitting S.Wai is having a run and i notice the clubs oldest player Tim “MG” Dodgson is again putting his hand up for Sunday duties after knocking up another 30 odd in the 2nd’s last week.

With rain set to be around both days make sure all players get to home games early to assist the ground staff and the skippers with covers and wet area’s around the covers.
