Round 1 Team of the week

Andrew Potts: The Pott strode to the crease without his usual partner in ‘cyber’ crime Ben McLean but instead he had Rhys Marget to pound boundaries with. In this case Pottsy was indeed taking full advantage of the postage stamp sized ground awkwardly clubbing 76.

Rhys Marget: Also without his usual opening partner Rhys played the way he always does trying to clear the fence at will. A hard hitting 59 got the 3rd XI off to a flyer.

Shannon Small: After a year off due to work commitments Shan was welcomed back and opened up with the stick setting up a platform for the 1st XI run chase. Accumulated a textbook 47 and shows no signs of rust early on.

Lachie Stuckey: Turned up to the game late and without his usually well-manicured hair but still managed to look the part in the middle after accepting the opening position in the 2nd XI. Sent numerous balls whistling to the fence and looked impressive in defence to club a fine 49.

Hayden Morrison: Jr Morro slotted in a t for the 3rd XI and came in with plenty of runs on the board. Threw away with his much-maligned go-slow approach to become a brute powerhouse for the day! Apparently. Finished the innings with forceful 57 not and showing signs he’s ready to go big in season 2017/18.

Josh Wylde: Shows once again some fine signs of a young leader as he controlled the middle over to help set up a big total in the 2nd XI. Never flustered and keen on putting away the bad pills Josh finished the day with a very polished 41.

Mitch Gregory: The very astute Mitchell was keen to impress in game one of the season and looked good with the stick clipping away many 1’s and 2’s before going bang and sending one half way up the hill on his way to 28 not out. Now a bowling all-rounder for some reason, the little genius was on fire snaring 3 for 7 including some demon like deliveries sending shivers up the opposition spines.

Adam Metherell: A welcome return from a club favourite and a nice bag of 3 in the 1st XI was an impressive start. Not sure the full bag of tricks was on display but look out when it is! That’s all I can say. Will be looking for some all-round performances with the bat in coming weeks.

Matthew Lambrick: The shank is as keen a cricketer as there ever will be! Loves the game almost as much as arguing and enjoys a wicket. Took a couple and slapped a handy 15 to finish off the 3rd XI innings. Looking for some big big games from Lamby this season.

Jack Deveson: The man with the low front arm continued from an impressive previous season taking a nice bag of 3 and helped the 3rd XI restrict the opposition to a modest total in their run chase.

Drew Withers: The great man had a very impressive game and has taken a liking to Miller park taking another good haul whilst terrorising the opposition batsmen. Will be pushing for higher honours in the coming weeks with some good form.

12th Man

Tom Wylde: Was a standout for the 4th XI clubbing a stylish 23 not out in a rusty game for the rest of the team. For some reason has taken a liking to the gloves in recent times and we wish him all the best because he’s just fantastic.
