Round 3 Preview
With at least 14 changes in teams across all the grades from Round 2 the club has scrambled to field teams this week. Chairman of selectors Warwick Potts was has done an outstanding job to coordinate the teams and selections for the round.
The A Grade faces Woodville South at Ledger Reserve, the first away game for the season. Tim Keen makes his A grade debut, congratulations and well deserved as well as Dean Spraakman returning to the club during Adelaide University’s District Bye. The boys hope to go 2-1 on the back of last week’s win over Pembroke OS.
The B Grade have their first game at Goodwood after back-to-back road trips to start the season. They face an undefeated Flinders Parks’ A grade with Tim Sargent promoted from LOD to A3 and Matthew Keen back in two day cricket after returning from injury.
The C Grade are up against Payneham’s B grade at Payneham Oval. Michael Chuyns on the back of 4/ in the LOD’s will be helping out the boys this week along with Callum Harding/Imran Webb super-sub. Dan Stephenson also takes on captains duties with Tex unavailable.
The D Grade travel to Largs Reserve to play Port Districts. With a youthful team fully of Jolly’s, recent strong performances in the opening two losses, the boys can hopefully put a win on the board.
The E Grade unfortunately has no game this week with Ingle Farm unable to field a team in the C.3 competition.
LOC’s are at Lockleys to Fulham and the LOD’s play Payneham at Cabra East.
Thank you to players who are assisting the club and filling in this weekend throughout the grades. Your support is appreciated and valued.
