4th Grade

This round saw the 4’s travel to Charlestown Oval and in a remarkable run of form at the toss our 4’s skipper won the toss again and elected to bat first. A steady start saw our lads get to 3 for 63 with Mitch Piller (45) doing a bulk of the scoring. Then came the impressive partnership of 85 between Adam Walker (56) & Rhys Fallavollita (39) which pushed the total into the mid 100’s and with little partnerships the rest of the way down the order the boy batted until the end of the 69th over finishing 203.

This meant 1 over still to be played the over went to Ian Gray and Charlestown sit 0 for 0 going into next week.


3rd Grade

A late ground swap saw this game moved to Sports Ground Number 6 for our 3rd graders and after losing the toss and having to bowl first on what could be one of the hardest grounds to defend on our boys did a remarkable job bowling out Charlestown for 168. Patrick Fitzgerald (3-39) impressed again with the ball and with bowling from Grant Smith (2-30) & Simon Wall (2-39) saw our lads get to have 10 overs with the bat to end the day.

These overs where not waisted as some aggressive batting from Daryl Daniels (44) saw our 3’s finish the day 1 for 70 not out batsman are Patrick Huolohan (13*) & Ryan Osbourne (4*).


2nd Grade

At Kahibah Oval Ball defiantly dominated the day with 20 wickets falling in the day Charlestown won the toss and elected to bat which saw our lads bowl with venom and rip through Charlestown’s order in 43 overs Charlestown ended on 77 with best bowling figures going to Sam Palmer (4-16), Mitch Morgan (3-10) & Isasc Hillery (2-18).

Our 2nd Grade batters did not do any better with the willow and it was not long until wickets continued to fall unfortunately we missed out on first innings points ending all out for 73.

1 over was to be bowled in Charlestowns 2nd innings which was a maiden from Palmer.

Under 15’s / Dennis Broad / and 1st Grade T/20’s Wrap 30/11/14


 Under 15’s

Our under 15s started the day off against Wests and with Captain Hannah winning the toss saw her team bat first and amount a challenging total of 4 for 116 off the completed 20 overs. Best of the bat where Noah James (36) & Laughlin O'Connor (23).

All of the young bowler did an amazing job keeping the pressure on Wests and where able to create many chances a few slipped through their fingers but with a couple of run outs and a few wickets the pressure created was enough to see the young Lions home. Wests ended the day 5 for 97 off their 20 overs.

A great start for our day


Dennis Broad

Wests skipper won the toss for this game and chose to bat and west got off to a bit of a flier with the 2nd wicket falling at 67 but after that wicket fell our DB’s where able to pick up the pressure tighten the fielding and did not give away to many more chances the finial 10 overs was a great effort from the 11 out there slowing down the run rate they were able to restrict Wests to a total of 9 for 111. Outstanding bowling from Zac McGuigan (3-15).

Again some tight bowling from the Wests team saw our guys pushed impressive figures from former Lion Isaac Lancaster (3-20) off 4 showed he knew a few of our batters well but with good innings from Daryl Daniels (24) & Mitch Morgan (20) who were able to set up the run chase for Zac McGuigan (12*) & Chad Mayo (9*) to bring the team home in the 18th over our DB’s made it 2 from 2 finishing 5 for 113.


1st Grade T/20

Being round 9 for the first graders our boys looked to keep the run of good T/20 form alive Wests skipper won the toss and elected to bat which saw them bat out the 20 overs for a total of 7 for 114. Best figures go to Sam Gilmour (2-20).

With aggressive mind sets Simon Moore (65) & Josh Geary (37*) went out to opening the innings and managed to achieve the total set in the 14th over the guys ended the day 1 for 118. Another 3/3, and would like to acknowledge the great support in the stands for both sides all day.




After a terrible week for the cricket family we mourned the loss of Phillip Hughes and played in his honour this weekend. A tremendous showing of respect as each team took 63 seconds of silence before play got underway. This is an event that we will live with us for our lifetimes. RIP Phillip Hughes, Test number 408 may you forever be 63 not out.
