Bowlers Revenge against the Ghosts

A good day’s work by most teams. Unlike last week, in most games the ball dominated the bat with Jackson Saggers (2nds), Dan Stickland (3rds) and Dave Monaghan (5ths) all taking five wickets. The highlight of the day though, was undoubtedly in 4th Grade. At 6-45, you’re probably not thinking you’ll be able to declare…
