What a HUGE weekend for the club. We had another clean sweep on the weekend and secured the Premier Cricket Club Championship. The thirds celebrated a famous victory which was watched by everyone on the bottom ground at Schramms. Motch delivered with a 133 not out knock that was celebrated by all! At 9 for 129, chasing 263, victory looked unlikely. Joe Blythe and Motch combined to guide the side over the line...an amazing result.
We all headed up into the rooms to celebrate the Club Championship. Only once before in the last 10 years has a club broken the 700 point barrier for the season..we finished on 703.
In the rooms the O'Sullivan clan had also gathered to celebrate Micks 500th game. Gerard Dowling spoke well and summed up the great man very accurately. If you could have a degree in people skills MOS would be the king. When MOS spoke he didn't mention any of his many achievements in cricket but chose the moment to mention the great people he has met and the support of his wife and fantastic family...he is ever humble.
After this the players settled down to count down the Don Patrick medal. Trent Lawford was a worthy winner by 2 votes from Mick Sachetta.
With 4 sides in the finals for the first time in living memory...the season now begins... GO LIONS!!!!
