Cricket season is upon us already and I am suiting up again for cricket for Greystanes CC in what should be thereabouts my 20th year for the club (not sure exactly). We are playing in division B10 (there are 17 B Divisions) and our first game is this Saturday at our home ground of Daniel St Park Greystanes. Play starts at 1:30pm and admission is FREE! (lol – we should pay our spectators!). First game is against Hills Barbarians which is a side we haven’t played before, so I am not sure what to expect. We have though a few familiar faces still in our division from last season including last seasons premiers Wenty Leagues and Norwest who finished mid table.
We lost the semi final last season, so hopefully we can kick on and win the comp this season. We’ve lost 2-3 players from last season plus we’ve lost Joe for the first quarter of the season as he’s off on his honeymoon for 6 weeks and also Noyz wont be playing game 1 as he had the hide to have a baby on Tuesday!
But we’ve picked up three players from another team in the club after they folded and I understand they’re all good bats… just a bit worried about our bowling strength this season.
I personally am looking forward to having a decent season. I weigh less than what I did last season (that’s always a good sign!) and despite not having picked up a bat in 6 months, am feeling in form ;-)
So from now on, Lime Kettles will take on a bit of a cricket wrap every Monday morning…
