Workers must toil to claw back Easts in baseball

By GEOFFREY HALLMANN FOR Workers and Easts Redbirds - the two teams eyeing the minor premiership flag this weekend's round is crucial.

With just four wins separating the two teams, this weekend offers Workers the chance to claw back points after some a bout of mid-season jitters. However, Redbirds have shown no signs of slowing down, so the tri-colours' task will be difficult.

Workers have been blooding some talent: Bryce Martin and Sam Keehn were strong performers last weekafter stepping up to the top grade. The pair, with the experience of Wayne Devlin, Dallas Knapp, and the dynamic duo of Michael and Scott McClelland, have Workers ready to match the enthusiasm and talent of the young Redbirds squad.

Last night was the first of the weekend's double-header.

If Workers can fire up their bats and ensure Redbirds turn over their pitching, they are a chance of taking both games IN THE remaining game of the weekend, Norths and Brothers will line up on Thew field at 2:45pm.

The Brethren will be doing it tough without Dave McClelland, Jeff Mackney, and JJ Sexton who will be in Tamworth with the FNC Juniors.

Norths have players returning from the absenteeism that plagued them last weekend and Brothers will need to dig deep to stay in touch

JUNIORS in the Under 12s, 14s and 16s age group head west for the annual Tamworth Junior Carnival this weekend. The teams are in form and will be out to down the tough Sydney teams.

The Under 16s hold a good chance of making the finals, while the 12s and 14s must beat more teams for a chance at the title.
