Round three: the teams (& Marshall Bunting’s 100th game & Elwood Lounge on Saturday night!)

October 28, 2011 No Comments

Hello all,

A great effort by the selection committee to get five teams out considering we had almost 25 players unavailable!

Firstly — it’s an Elwood Lounge night on Saturday night. For the new players and uninitiated, what that means is that we’ll all be heading their on Saturday night for a few refreshments to celebrate a good day of cricket. They’re our major sponsor so let’s support them!

Secondly, we have the latest milestone game this round. Congratulations to Marshall Bunting for playing 100 senior games for Elwood! He’s our inspirational 1st XI skipper, reigning CMCA player of the year and Elwood club champion, chairman of selectors, social coordinator and Milo cricket coordinator. It was his trusted right hand man Nathan Harris’ 100th game last week, and like Nathan, Marshall’s importance to Elwood is immeasurable. Well done on 100 fine games mate, and we look forward to a few hundred more!

Thirdly, congratulations to Aaron Dann for making his club debut this round in the 2nd XI! And it’s great to have former 1st XI batsman Aaron Norling back at the club who will also play in the Twos.

And lastly, a few young guns got a well earned promotion this week in Howie Persson and Mitch Clarke who will play in our Third XI. And due to a Steven Bradbury-eque wicket keeper unavailability, Leigh Josey will make his James Podsiadly-like Longmuir debut at the ripe old age of 31

Let’s get five wins boys.

Go Elwood.
