Clunes connection in final
WHEN Marist Brothers take on the Casino Cavaliers in the Far North Coast LJ Hooker League final this weekend, their team will include five present or former Clunes junior cricketers.
From the older lads in Luke and Toby Collings through Stuart Rose to youngsters Jared Seiffert and Dain Moreton, all have played or still do play with Clunes Junior Cricket Club.
Several other Clunes juniors are also playing leading roles for the Marist Brothers club in other senior grades.
Players such as Jake Muscat and Lachlan Waugh were the leading wicket-takers for their teams in a Lismore District first-grade semi-final last weekend, while youngsters Blake Taylor and Andrew Muscat had their first year of senior cricket this season with Brothers.
Ironically, Clunes teams square off against Marist Brothers in three of the five junior finals.
The Under-16 Pool A game was played at Oakes Oval last night and the Under-14 Pool A and Under-12 Pool A finals will be played this weekend.
Dain Moreton last night capped a great season of junior cricket by taking the Lismore District’s Most OutstandingJunior trophy.
The award was announced at the LDJCA presentation at Oakes Oval during the break in the Under-16 Pool A final, in which Dain captained the Clunes team.
Souths and Marist Brothers will clash in the Lismore District first grade cricket final at Oakes Oval today and tomorrow.
Other finals are one-day games.
Souths Green play Goonellabah Tavern in second grade at Heaps Oval, while it’s Goonellabah Workers Sports against Norths in third grade at Arthur Park.
The fourth grade final at Rec 8 is between Workers Red and Norths, while in fifth grade Workers face Norths Blue at Rec 10.
