Maygars Mob v Wilderness Wanderers Cricket Match
International Women’s Day
“Maygar Park” Ruffy
A perfect day for a cricket match, spectators under glorious oak shade and players in sunshine and a light breeze. Scotty McKay’s Wanderers were the ultimate victors on the new pitch, in what was a real cliff-hanger.
Cricketing prowess varied immensely. Comments were heard such as “the pitch is longer than I remember” and “where is the fridge?” We were fortunate to have Travis and Glen join us from Euroa as their team had not made the finals.
Captains Greg Palmer and Scotty McKay unanimously awarded Person of the Match to Sammy Strong of Caveat. Most fitting on International Womens Day. Two pretty smart batters were bowled out by Claire Debney and Laura Penny.
Catch of the Day went to Bryan Dawe who was hoping someone had caught the action on camera. This same gent was seen with a fistful of dollars [fake] in conversation with the umpire. He won the award for travelling the furthest distance, 3.5 hours.
Arran and Kate Murphy played a great game, as a married couple duo.
Newcomer to Euroa, Simon Box was cheered on by his wife Melanie
At one stage it looked like Ari the Border Collie might nick off with the ball but was encouraged away by her owner.
Little children played happily for hours
Families picnicked under the oak tree shade, on fabulous hampers prepared and delivered by Mary and Lauren at the Weekend Local, Euroa.
Afternoon tea saw great prowess in the kitchen with Maygars Mob [the blokes] providing cucumber sandwiches, secret recipe curried egg sandwiches and Palmer pikelets.
Catherine Forsyath sketched the play, Bill Sykes visited with Stephanie Ryan, the candidate for Euroa and a wonderful time was had by all.
Will we play again next year? You bet. Age and experience may not hold out next time!
