Round 5: The Teams & RIP Danny Ymer Snr

November 14, 2014 No Comments


Spring Carnival is over and it’s time to reverse our fortunes and rectify what was a fairly average round of cricket last weekend. Even though we are getting closer to full strength this week, we still have over a dozen regular senior players out and we look forward to getting stronger in the weeks ahead. Therefore, let’s all do our best to make sure we give ourselves every chance to get a win in every game this week!

In club news, this week sees the club – and Longmuir – debut of Dominic Bulcock. Good luck, mate. And congratulations!

It’s also the club debut for Andrew Baker in our 2nd XI. Good luck Andrew!

Also, the Fifth XI match has been moved from the opposition’s home ground to Elwood this round. Which is great for the club and the players, especially those whom have never played at Elwood!

In other news, last week the club unfortunately lost a former player and great club man. Danny Ymer Snr passed away last week. Danny played 63 games for Elwood, scoring two centuries and winning three premierships, including captaining the Twos to two premierships in the mid 1980s. Danny was a gutsy player, keeping without pads, he took an an astonishing 70 catches and an an even more incredible 30 stumpings from his 63 matches. As a sign of respect to Danny and his family, and for his achievements for Elwood, every player will be wearing black arm bands this Saturday.

For Danny, let’s have a red hot crack this round.

Good luck boys.

Go Woods.
