Junior cricket report

WITH a fine but overcast day, both of the Gretna Cricket Club’s junior teams played without interruption from rain. The Under 13 batsmen did a great job to bat out all of their 25 overs with Josh Russell top-scoring with 14 runs. Zac Crosswell made 12 and James Webb made 11 runs (retired). Five of the Gretna bowlers took wickets with Finlay Crisp the best with 1 for 3 off two overs.

In the Under 15s it was again another close one with the boys going down by only 13 runs. Captain Aaron Triffitt showed great control, making a superb 51 runs (not out). The team was at one stage 7 for 34 but recovered to be all out for 91. To show the closeness of the game, Glenorchy batting first was also 7 for 34.

Zac Webb, who came to the wicket when we were reeling at 8 for 47, put on a 38 run partnership with Aaron Triffitt. Although Aaron made most of the 38 runs it was Zac who showed great character and stood tall when the team needed him most. For the bowlers it was again Dylan Carver in the limelight taking 3 for 8 off four overs. Thanks to Dylan’s mum Celia for scoring, a top job, well done.

It is great to see the big improvement from all 37 junior players over the past weeks, well done, keep up the good work. While on the subject of good work, the club would like to thank the Glenora District High School and in particular Lyn Saunders for the work in having a synthetic pitch laid and having the ground in order for the Under 13s on Sunday. Thanks also to Natasha Farrow for opening the change rooms. All this has allowed the juniors to retain home games when the Gretna ground is being used by our senior teams, otherwise we would have further travel. Thank you, it’s very much appreciated.

To all the Milo cricketers, we look forward to seeing you at Gretna for your last session and a barbecue on Friday afternoon. It will be great to see our future stars in action.
