7th Grade Match Report: Rd 4 vs Swan Valley at Baskerville Oval
Cricket’s a funny game. 7th Grade were playing Swan Valley at Baskerville oval, the temperature was a mere 37 deg, the fly swarm was well and truly waiting and the captain had listened to advice about there being a Bar at the ground, so no need for cold beer.
Baskerville had lots of flies but no Bar, whoops giver of advice was thinking of a different ground.
We fielded first, at 0/150 the day was rapidly going downhill, chasing the ball, left / right batting combo, swatting the flies and cursing the captain for no cold beer. After a much improved fielding and bowling effort, we kept them down to 231.
The chase began as the day had begun, poorly. At 2/0 with both openers relegated to scoring and umpiring things were looking grim, and still no cold beer. Morty came out to bat and changed the momentum of the game, his innings of 81 gave us a chance. Aidon Bellchambers, supported by the middle, order steered us home to a remarkable victory. Well done Aidon.
It was a dry, dusty and fly riddled celebrations, but hey, we won.
Do you have a spare room? Do you love English people? Then do I have an offer for you!
Ocean Ridge Cricket Club is looking for somewhere to stay for English Import Scotty Kirwin and his partner.
Scotty is currently staying with Allan Hall, but despite Kirs winning Hally’s prestigious “Housemate of the Month” in consecutive months, Hally has family & friends staying in December and as such has no room at the Inn, so to speak.
The club is offering financial incentives, and Scotty is offering half-volleys in the nets so you look like a better cricketer.

Some solid team batting by Smithy & Gogg’s to save the possibility of an outright defeat was the highlight of a fairly average performance against Murdoch Melville. Well done to Daniel Dunkley for a good batting performance and taking his first wickets in 7th grade. It was great to see some old club members at the ground supporting us, Rusty’s catch in the crowd, without spilling a drop, will hopefully inspire the rest of the team to take a catch or two.
