It was good to have a match against another school our first in over 18 months. It turned out to be very entertaining with both teams enjoying some fine bowling and batting while fielding looks like the area requiring some practice prior to our next game. Well done to all involved especially to those boys playing for St. Marys for the first time, already to looking forward to our next match.
