Souths v Valleys

ROUND four of the Stanthorpe and District Cricket Association will feature a clash between front running team Souths and number two side Valleys.

After a strong start to the season Souths established themselves as the early team to beat and have a handy points lead.

Souths spokesman John Hendry said the team looked to continue its strong form but would be without several key senior players for the match.

"We will be missing our opening bowler Danny Folkes, all rounder Scott Williams and opening batsman Mal Whitton but we will be welcoming the return of Pat Cameron and we have called up a few Under-16 players," he said.

"It will be a good chance for a few of the young players like Adam Bonner and Dan Cameron to stand up."

Hendry said Souths were happy with the players' enthusiasm and direction the early season had taken but there were still areas of their game to focus on.

"If we have to bat first we really want to bat out our entire 40 overs," he said.

"We believe the teams which can bat out the 40 overs will be the ones there challenging for the final at the end of the season."

 

 

Wanderers v RSL

SITTING just outside the top two, Wanderers will have an opportunity to reel in the leaders when they face off against RSL at Stanthorpe State High School.

Wanderers spokesman Jamie Carnell said his team would be missing a key player with Andrew Einam returning overseas but said his side was capable of performing well.

"If we bat and bowl well we should have the side to beat them," he said.

In an early season where bowling often gained the upper hand Carnell said Wanderers' bowlers were leading the team but the team was due for a big score.

"If we can pick up a couple of their top order batsmen cheaply we should go well,' he said.

"Our strength at the moment is our bowling and batting has been a bit hot and cold but we are hoping to improve.

"Hayden Lanza is one of our key batsmen who made a start in the first game but not many since so he is due for some runs."
