Rep team to play at home


Sunday sees our men's representative team play Blue Mountains at Rygate in the NSW McDonalds Plate KO competition.

The team is being led by Brad Johnson and Nick Cosier.        

Last Saturday's Federal Hotel T20 games saw  Farmers and Federal Floggers battle it out.

Farmers batting first finished 7 for 131 - Chad Taylor was 36 not out and Brian Giddings 22.

Floggers in reply were 6 for 134 from 15 overs.

James Cusack scored 48, Damien Wells 45 and Fred Stanley 17 not out.

Young Artie Taylor, 4 for 7 from 2 overs and on a hat-trick after his first two balls bowled was the pick of Farmers bowlers.                 

In game two Redferns took on Federal Thundercats.         

Redferns batting first were all out for 164 (Will Redfern 41, Mark Redfern 33).

Thundercats in return were 7 for 130, with Brian Dutfield scoring 45, and Matthew Powyer 18 from his first game of senior cricket.

Chris Redfern picked up 2 wickets.

Game three at Geurie - the homeside came up against Amaroo Woodpeckers - result unknown due to result slip received.

Saturday's draw:

- Rygate 1pm Federal Thundercats v Amaroo Peckers, 4pm  Redferns v Amaroo Ducks.

- Geurie 4pm  Geurie v Farmers.

- Bye: Federal Floggers.  


The under-12s are at the halfway mark of their game v St Johns White and are 4 for 80 chasing about 100 with 20 overs remaining for

Wellington batting before St Johns have to bat again.

Under-14s are still looking for some more players for their

first game on October 29 - please contact Marie Cornish, Loren

Douglas or Michelle Eather if interested.
