Men set to play ball

FAR North Coast men's softball will get under way tonight at 7pm. Players are still needed for some teams so if you missed the muster last week and want to play, meet at the canteen at 6.30pm.

More players are still needed for T-ball and Modball games.

In the Under-13s, Dodgers Mustangs should prove too strong for the young Lismore Larrikins side.

Larrikins have moved up from Modball this season, and may take a few weeks to settle in. Mustangs have a few new faces in Will Riley and Laura Larsen, while Nick Winkler-Maloney was impressive with the bat last week.

Casino will meet Byron Bay Shortsox.

Shortsox, new to the competition this season, had a big win last week and under the direction of coach Mel Curry they will be out to impress. Casino have a lot of experience in Daniel Crowther and Dean Gillespie.

The other game between Goonellabah Cheetahs and Workers Hawks should be evenly matched.

In the Under-15s, Casino Panthers and Dodger Lakers will meet in a rematch of the 2007 grand final.

Sam Osborne has been consistent on the mound for Lakers working in tandem with catcher Mitchell Watt.

Panthers' Edward Kelly will star on the mound while Callum Riordan and Bee Bauyer are a danger with the bat.

In the other game, Workers Crows will play Goonellabah Wildcats.

In the Under-19s, Workers Marlins take on Goonellabah.

Marlins' key players are Jeremy Sexton, Josh Dardengo and Michael Cocciolla, while Goonellabah will rely on Casey Stephens, Brendan Cole and pitcher Dael Leishman.

  • There will be a pitching clinic today from 4.30pm to 5pm at Albert Park.
