The grand final of the Federal Hotel T20 Competition has arrived with the two Amaroo teams doing battle for "bragging rights". Peckers won the major final sending them through to the first, while the Ducks had a challenging game against Federal Floggers to see who would be playing them.

The final was interrupted by Saturday afternoon's "mighty storm" but players were able to return to the field after a short break and with the benefits of the lights were able to have a close finish to their game. Sorry guys the scoresheet has gone missing from the Canteen where it was put to dry out.

The Consolation Final saw Geurie win an exciting game against Federal Thundercats to now play Farmers in the Grand Final. Geurie batting first were 5 for 194 (a quick fire 58 from Pat Randal, 45 from legside Robbie Dowton and Jay Davies 34) with the 5wickets being shared by Thundercats bowlers with young Jesse Dutfield hard to score runs from.

In reply Cats were all out for 130 with Jack Dutfield 27, Zac 19 and Mac Dutfield 16 with Geurie's Tom taking 3wts for 9runs .

Saturday's grand final day – 3pm - Farmers v Geurie - Consolation Division - Umpires: Noel Phoebe and volunteer from Foggers, Redferns or Cats.

6pm - Amaroo Peckers v Amaroo Ducks - Umpires Noel Phoebe and Jason Ryan
