Lismore Greys prove they've still got it with state win

LISMORE Emerging Greys Cricket XI were declared joint winners of the NSW Intra State Over-60 Cricket Carnival in Tamworth.

The team met Tamworth in the final of Division 1 after winning its pool against Newcastle, Sydney No 1 and Quirindi.

Fourteen teams took part in the annual event which determines coveted bragging rights for the title holders as NSW's "brightest fading stars" of the 40-over format.

The final against Tamworth was washed out shortly after the toss with the Emerging Greys 0-19 after 2 overs.

It was a typically dashing opening stanza by left-hand openers Rob Blomfield and Roger Boyd.

Boyd was captain and enjoyed a great carnival with both bat and ball.

Bill Crane, Glenn Roff, Boyd and English batting sensation Harry Padalia all figured in the top 10 batsmen of the carnival, while left-armers Geoff Gaggin and Crane finished in the list of top 10 bowlers.

"Our success is once again tribute to our strict training regime, mental alertness and weekly tactical sessions at Eltham," team spokesman Keith Doherty said at the official presentation.

The Emerging Greys are affiliated with the Lismore District Cricket Association and have represented the region for almost 20 years.

They next play in Lismore at Oakes Oval against annual rivals, the Queensland Cricketers Club, during the 2016 Australia Day celebrations.
