Sunbury finish top of Mc’s ladder – we are off to the finals!
In a massive weekend of cricket for Sunbury followed by two great wins from our U14 and U16 teams, our 1st XI win outright against a hapless St. Anthony’s, our 3rd XI clinch a spot in the finals doing the same thing.
Unfortunately our 4th XI was on the other end just missing out on the four by percentage as Ashfield win outright against Riddell and handing United ten points in the process.
All eyes are now looking toward this weekends matches.
At Clarke Oval, Sunbury 1st XI host Woodend in the winner take all McIntyre Cup semi-final. Sunbury will start as firm favourites but history tells us that once the battle commences it’s even money.
SCC’s all conquering U14 team will host Gisborne Redbacks in the morning also at Clarke Oval in the Grand Final which will be a big thrill for these guys playing on the premier ground in the district in front of a crowd of Royal Blue.
Dom Douglas’s 3rd XI travel to Langama Park to battle against the highly fancied East Sunbury XI in the E Grade semi-final. Anything can happen in these matches, if our guys can get a couple of early wickets the pressure will be on.
SCC’s U16′s will visit Rupertswood in the consolation Grand Final. There are some real stars of the future representing our club in this seasons U16′s as shown by the majority of the team also performing well in the senior 3rd and 4th XI’s.
So get right behind our teams this Saturday and Sunday, there is no reason why you can’t see some of all the 4 games and give our team the support they deserve. There really is no excuse, so don’t worry about the lawns, that can be mowed in April, call a plumber to fix the leaky tap and washing the car is a waste of time, it’s going to rain mid week anyway.
Grab your club shirt and cap and join the Royal Blue army!
Yours in cricket,
