On Monday the 6th November Grange CC hosted two matches in the National Over 70’s Tournament. Despite the cold wind the players displayed good skill and sportsmanship. South Australia No 1 team played Queensland on the main oval while on the No 2 ground the SA No 2 took on one of the Victorian teams. SA batted first in both games but struggled in the early stages.
After a wonderful lunch both SA teams kept the highly fancied opposition to low scores before the drink break but were unable to sustain the pressure.
I would like to thank Richard Haby, Ange, Vinnie and Dom Gauccio plus Roy Schultz from the SA Veterans Cricket Association for their help on the day and Des Fry for his efforts in preparing two excellent pitches.
