FTGCC Vets 1 Win Premiership!
Date of Event : Wed Feb 28, 2018 4:38PM

The FTGCC Vets 1 team have won our first ever FTGDCA Veterans Division 1 Premiership last Sunday in a very dominant display!

FTG won the toss and elected to bat and started brilliantly with both openers, Stuart Kranzbuhler and Mario Catalano, retiring on 41. Our number 3 bat, Dale Harris, made a classy 37. Darren Carter chipped in with 13 before being dismissed LBW. An important partnership between Shane Richardson (28*) and Michael Reed (30) ended on the last ball of our innings when Michael Reed was stumped trying to play a shot beyond his ability. FTG had amassed 4/207(cc) from our allotted 36 overs.

Our bowling started really well with an extremely tight opening bowling partnership from David Anstey, 0/6 from 6 overs, and Neil Purdham, 2/12 from 6 overs. The excellent bowling continued throughout the innings with Shane Richardson bagging 3/27 from 5.4 overs, Jace Austin, in his first ever cricket premiership, 2/18 from 3 overs, Michael “No sixes hit off me today” Reed 1/14 from 2 and James “Spider” Morris 1/20 from his 6 overs. Mt Gate ended up 9/138(cc) from 34.4 overs.

The celebrations continued well into the night and the next few days!
