Cricketers in appealing form

THE TIME for goodwill is over – now hostilities can resume.

Well, hopefully if Mother Nature doesn’t ruin the second scheduled round of year in the Fraser Coast Cricket A grade men’s competition.

All three games were abandoned without a ball being bowled in the opening round last weekend after rain left the grounds in both Maryborough and Hervey Bay unfit to play on.

In today’s games, competition leaders, the unbeaten Past Grammars, take on the Mariners at Maryborough’s Newtown Oval.

The other two games of the round will be played at Urangan’s Keith Dunne Oval.

Defending premiers, Bushrangers, play the Coastal Cougars on the number one oval while Cavaliers go head-to-head with Australs on the other oval.

Past Grammars captain Paul Sanders said his players were itching to have a game.

“It’s been a month since we’ve played because of the festive season break and the rain last week,” Sanders said.

“You could say that we’ve had enough of sitting around.”
