UNDER 15: An excellent match was played between Gretna and Molesworth on Sunday. Two stand outs for the match were Josh Farrow of Gretna and Dakoda Smith of Molesworth who both did well with the bat and ball as well as a great job in the field with Farrow also taking two catches. Great sportsmanship was shown by both sides. Molesworth put on a very good day with their two Under 13 sides playing each other before the Under 15s match and a free barbecue for all was much appreciated.
