Muirs Update #4 12 December

Welcome to the latest update on Muirs on field progress. Each round we highlight a few teams from across the age spectrum of the club.

There was a Muirs derby in the Under 14Bs over the past two Friday nights at Koonung Park, as the Blue and White sides faced off.  This game featured clubmate against clubmate, friend against friend and in one case, brother against brother!  The blue team came away with the points, but by all reports the game was well fought out by both teams and played in good spirits.

The Under 16A Friday night team are off to a strong start, currently sitting second on the ladder.  This round saw them take on Vermont at Vermont, and led by James and Caleb with the ball, and Darcy and Alistair with the bat, they triumphed with several overs to spare.   A number of players from this team also made good contributions in senior teams over this round, showing the talent that is blossoming at this level.

In the seniors, the Fourths laid on a grandstand finish at Blackburn South.  Chasing 214 to win, the team looked to be in trouble at 6/96 with a batsman retired hurt.  But Bryn, Elvis, Turtle and Giggles had other ideas, steering the side to 9/200.  Nadeep came limping back out with Elvis as his runner, and survived long enough for Turtle to first bring up his 50, and then clobber a boundary over long on in the last over of the day to seal a memorable win.

Muirs Update #3 5 December

Welcome to the latest update on Muirs on field progress. Each round we highlight a few teams from across the age spectrum of the club.

The Under 9 White team put in a great performance on Sunday against Blackburn at Springfield Park. Ewan took 2 wickets in his 3 overs as all the bowlers did a great job, while with the bat Archie and Archer both pushed into double figures.

The Under 14 Friday A Grade team are off to a good start this season, and this week have set Heatherdale 192 to chase. Pat retired on 56*, while Jayden and Pasandul also posted 30+ scores. Pasandul added to his bag of tricks when he leapt in to fill in as a fielder in the seniors on Saturday after his Dad unluckily sustained a hamstring injury!

Highlight of the week in the seniors was a sparkling 137* by Gags in the Thirds, supported by 50+ scores by Ben and Macca. The team declared at 6/322 and snatched the first Nunawading wicket before stumps were called. Confirmation is being sought with a former club president that 137* is better than 102*.

The juniors, seniors, families and friends that came down to watch the T20 team last night were treated to a fun night and a good performance. The T20 team stand at one win, one loss and one downpour. The next game is also at Springfield Park on December 18, and it will be another great night for everyone to get together at the club – keep the date free!

Muirs Update 14 November

Welcome to the latest update on Muirs on field progress. Each round we highlight a few teams from across the age spectrum of the club.

It was raining boundaries at Templestowe this week as our Fast 9 White team combined to hit the ropes 17 times in an impressive score of 138 off 30 overs. The bowling was tight to restrict the opposition to 57 runs. A great team effort with everyone contributing!

The Under 16 B Grade side had a one day fixture at Springfield Park on Saturday and overcame Mitcham by 11 runs. Everyone chipped in with bat, ball or both, with special mention for Thomas who knocked up a career best 30. The side sits in 2nd spot on the ladder early in the season.

At the other end of the age Groups, the A Division Veterans brought home the chocolates for the first time this season, rolling neighbours Blackburn North at Springfield Park on Sunday afternoon. Wickets were shared around, Loges took his customary catch, and the top order knocked off the runs with a couple of overs to spare.

Muirs update #1

Welcome to the first of what is planned to be a regular update on Muirs on field progress. Each round we will highlight a few teams from across the age spectrum of the club.

The Super 7 Blue team are off to an exciting start, with two ties and a win in their first 3 matches. Mitchell, Ethan and James have all had man-of-the match performances.  The team are making a name for themselves as run-out experts, with 9 opponents finding out not to take on the Super 7 Blues when they are fielding!

The Under 14 Blue side are poised in a tight match with Vermont. At the halfway point, only one run separates the sides in their Round 3 match, with Vermont 4/55 and the Under 14 Blues 2/54. Mitch and Daniel put on a great opening partnership, with Mitch retiring at 25*.

Rain made the latest round of seniors games one-day events. For the Fifths, Jacob and Darren put on a century opening stand, both retiring after bringing up their 50, as the team chased down the target set by Laburnum.

The Vets are 2 games into their season, and for the B Division boys, the ledger stands at 1-1. Some strong batting at the top of the order has seen Phill and Tyson both without a batting average, both men retiring in each match.

We thank our sponsors for their great support of the club, and this week want to highlight Ben’s Bees, The Joy Parade, and LV Financial Solutions.  Please continue to support the businesses that support our club, and let them know you are part of the Muirs!
