Sandford defeats Bushy Park

THE Southern Cricket Association fourth grade grand final was just about over before it began. Sandford won the toss and sent Bushy Park into bat – and what a move it proved to be. The Sandford bolwers skittled Bushy Park for 66 off 27.2 overs (14 extras and three dropped catches). Terrence Pritchard on 14 was the only Bushy Park batsman to hit double figures. Sandford bowler L. Hanslow took 6 for 13!

In reply Sandford reached the total with little trouble finishing 1 for 70 off 19.3 overs (24 extras). Terrence Pritchard took the one Sandford wicket.

For the Bushy Park boys, it just wasn’t their day at all. The disappointment on their faces said it all. But they have a great club with great supporters who really showed this on the day. They have some long-time players who are very passionate and a great official in Karen Fenton who gives her all. Stick together and, as Nick Fenton, having won only two games last season, making the grand final this season was quite an achievement, Well done. Congratulations to Mitch Crosswell on winning the SCA 4th Grade player of the year award – a real fine effort.
