A huge thank you to ‘Geoff Ogle’ and ‘Tank’ for doing a great job as the umpires for the day, and also to all the club members and supporters who came along to watch the cricket, show their support and enjoy the season getting underway.
Discovery Settlers Hotel & Restaurant put on a great buffet dinner function for the after match so a big thank you to everyone who made the effort to come and enjoy the evening.
A great day had by all – and what a way to start the new season of cricket.
