2015/2016 D Grade And Below

#42
Another hero has emerged.

Robert Fletcher from Epping made 122* out of 1/157 off 22 overs in G2 Grade. And he batted at 3, so presumably batted a few overs less than 22.

And Snelson from Monty racked up his 3rd ton of the year bullying some G graders. Lucky the ball didn't hit him in the head, he could have died!
What i don't get is why? Sure if you cant play both weeks, play in a lower grade, but surely going back to your mates saying i made a ton in 18 overs isn't rewarding. Why not make 50 and give some else at bat. Just saying.

Seems like some clubs are bolstering there lower grades at the expense of the higher grades. makes sense.

Massive from Monty B grade defending 110 and their ones giving their season a heartbeat!
This is D Grade and Below, not B Grade and Below.

PS. Should Barclay, Money and Mash players be allowed to play Vets?.

Clearly Lower Eltham have made all teams look poor, but actually they’d beat most Mash Teams in a one day game.

Today most Vets games were dominated by players from the Top Divisions. Is this in the spirit of the competition.

There are different grades in Vets.

The problem (if it is one) seems to be that Lower Eltham has recruited players from other clubs. Perhaps the solution (if one is required) is to prevent players having a different senior and vets club.

Those players who are vets for Lower might not have a vets team at their home to play in. One of our guys does the same; plays vets at Greensborough and seniors with us as we don't have a vets team at the moment.

People have short memories. Riverside dominated the vets comp for a number of years, now they don't and people don't like it. Best thing is about Riverside getting smashed - Joe Fleming in the losing side.

Couldn't happen to a worse bloke. Sucked in.
