Success for Gretna Under 13s

SHOOBRIDGE Park at Austins Ferry was the setting for a great win over Glenorchy by the Gretna Under 13 cricketers. It was a great team effort with captain Josh Farrow leading from the front with a fine 32 runs, backed up well by Ryan Emery who made 24 and Josh Hills with 21. Gretna again faced their allotted 25 overs, showing that all batsmen are valuing their wicket. When bowling, seven Gretna players captured wickets with Jacksyn Mann the best with two. Five catches were taken, well done kids.
A bit of history – young Josh Farrow is the great-grandson of the late Les Cunningham who is regarded as Gretna’s finest cricketer. Les who played for more than five decades and was made a life member of the Gretna club. It’s definitely in the genes, Josh.

Gretna’s junior trophy day will be on March 19 at the Gretna Sports Ground, more details later.


Results – Gretna 6 for 138 off 25 overs defeated Glenorchy 10 for 100 off 25 overs at Shoobridge Park. Batting: Joshua Farrow 32 runs retired (six 4s), Ryan Emery 24 runs (one 4), Josh Hills 21 (two 4s), James Webb 6. Bowling: Jacksyn Mann 2 for 12 off three overs, Aiden Russell 1 for 1 off two overs (one maiden), Josh Russell 1 for 1 off two overs (one maiden), Rupert Johnston 1 for 8 off two overs, Josh Hills 1 for 9 off two overs, Jacob Bowerman 1 for 8 off two overs, Zac Carnes 1 for 18 off two overs.

The Gretna Under 15s had the bye. This weekend’s games (Sunday) will see the Under 13s play New Town at Gretna while the Under 15s will meet New Norfolk at Gretna.
