Round 1 Match Report – F Grade

Franga’s ‘Forfs’ (fresh off their miraculous premiership victory of last season) looked to kick off the year with a bang against Berwick Springs away in round 1. After being sent in to bat, new committeeman Vakshan demonstrated how much effort he’d put in on and off-field in the pre-season by being dismissed for 3, before returning Clipboard favourite Dave Barrera steadied the ship with Geoff Zielin (65) in a 50+ run partnership. Further contributions from Mik Quinless, Shannon Hoe and Buster would set the boys up sweetly with a total of 243.

Strike weapon Zielin unfortunately suffered a diagnosed 5 day quad injury prior to the 2nd week (yes, this is legit according to his ‘physio’) leaving the lads a bowler short, but this would be no issue as they routed the Slinkees for 187. In a brilliant team effort the wickets were shared between 6 bowlers, Vakshan even taking off the gloves and being on a hat-trick at one point!

Quite simply, the Forfs just win. We look forward to watching their progress again this season.
