Junior Grand Finals

A successful day for the Club on Saturday with 3 of our 4 junior teams competing in Grand Finals. Congratulations to the Under 14s on getting up 4-3 in the last innings to defeat Cheltenham and to the Under 18s in their hard fought tussle against Dandenong, winning 5-3. Commiserations to our Under 16s, who on the day just couldn't match it with Mornington going down 6-2.
Well done to all our junior players, coaches, managers, scorers, parents on a fantastic 2018. Special mention to Stacey Gloury as our junior coordinator for her tireless work in organising this very important part of our Club.

Thanks also to the Club members who helped out as we hosted Grand Final day. Once again the Club can be proud of the way the grounds/food/parking etc were presented and delivered on the day. Big thanks to Tim Hanson for getting everyone involved and to Daryl Dicker who spent most of the season ordering, then tracking, then putting together our new home run fences - having 3 of the 4 diamonds with home run fences looked a treat!

Reminder that our senior B1 team plays Pakenham in the Grand Final next Saturday 8 September 2018 at 2pm at Bonbeach - one more flag for the year would be nice!
