They must be wrapt doing the quinella in their 100th year. Hampton did the same in their 100th year and earned promotion to Snr Div. Unlike the Hampton boys, I'm tipping they'll be super-competitive. Would expect mid-ladder, maybe even a 4th spot for a finals appearance.Northern $uper$tars;394507 said:Well done Bentleigh Cricket Club. Premiers in both the 1sts and 2nds.
Bad luck Beaumaris, and great season goes unrewarded.
Assuming they don't lose any of their big guns, how do we think Bentleigh will go in Senior Division?
Disagree on Beauie. Clearly with Hewett in the team they will be strong but would need Cockbain back. Would also need Hignett and Harrison to play on, both would be pushing 40 years old next year.underarm bowler;394539 said:I think Bentleigh have the players to finish between 4th and 7th next year.If they can get another signing i'm sure they would probably make the finals.
What now for Beauie? with no South teams coming down have to be red hot favourites to go one step further next year and get promoted.
Not sure what they played at but I know Beauy played at 54 on the weekend.Northern $uper$tars;394554 said:Rumour is Bentleigh are already talking about signing another "big fish" for next season.
Hope they can juggle the points and stay under the cap.
Yep, agree with that.NorthClubsDontPayPlayers;394558 said:Bentleigh would need 1-2 new players to be competitive in Senior, history shows you need new blood to continue to improve.
Showing my bias, but Manning from Brighton very unlucky. Bowen 36 wickets @ 19.6, including 11 in the outright last round, Manning 34 wickets @ 14.6. Captains made a mistake there.Northern $uper$tars;396063 said:Pretty good team that.
Roach skipper - well done, possibly if Beaumaris win the flag, Hewitt is Captain.
Anyone unlucky to miss out?
Obviously the Captains didn't rate them, can't get any fairer than the skippers from all clubs in the Division rating them.zyxwvu;396082 said:Showing my bias, but Manning from Brighton very unlucky.

Manning might have been unlucky, but Bowen was bowling every second game on a road in the middle of a postage stamp.zyxwvu;396082 said:Showing my bias, but Manning from Brighton very unlucky.

If Cole is the same James Cole as the one who played twos at McKinnon a few years ago I'm not sure he can be considered a "genuine gun" just yet. Made 500 runs in the South Seconds comp then only 150 in Senior A with Bentleigh the next year.borough;401808 said:Port look like they have picked up 2 genuine guns.
James Cole from Cumberland. Batsman/Wicket keeper.
Alex Roberts (Durham/Essex) All Rounder. More of a batsman.
