• Our Super Sunday double header kicked off at 10am at Hayes park in Thornbury with a Pride T10 Holy Trinity XI vs Empress Quokkas. 

    It was an exciting build up with music pumping, rainbows everywhere and a fun family atmosphere. 

    Dave & Ami co-captains graciously lost the toss, letting the home side elect to field. Cat, back in the maroon, opened the batting along with F1 & started us off well. It was an action packed innings, plenty of spice, not so many runs. Ed high scored with 17 and F1 with 14. With

    A couple of late boundaries, we battled through some serious pace and spin to set the “Trinners” 61 to win. 

    The early start behind us, and recovery hot dogs giving us an early morning boost of energy, we took to the field. J Rod took the first key wicket, a 9 year old caught behind off his glove. He wasn’t happy and tried for a review but without a DRS he was sent packing. Also sent packing were the fielders and long on and long off as they had to take some packed lunches while searching for the balls that sailed over their heads. Pete brought the Quokkas back into the game with a quick double-wicket over. 

    We were in it right until the 9th over when with just 12 balls remaining, Trinners needed a hefty 1 to win. Jase took the ball and flung a few offies the way of the 70 year old batter, but it was the unexpected bouncer that left him rattled and gave Quokkas the moral victory in a very social, pleasant and (mostly) friendly match. 

    A proud pack
