Pirates, Bears cricketers back after week with NSW Country

LENNOX Head all-rounder Andrew Lindsay scored 42 runs on the final day of the Australian Country Cricket Championships in South Australia.

The innings helped teammate Nick Berry to 118 not out as NSW Country finished 7-231 after 51 overs in a one-day game against Victoria Country yesterday.

Lindsay and Ballina Bears captain Justin Moore have spent the week playing for NSW Country.

Moore played five games with his best score 38 in the top-order in a two-day game against Western Australia Country.

He had a brief partnership with the Lennox Head captain in that game before Lindsay was bowled on 28.

Lindsay had limited chances with the bat but took six wickets in the three games he bowled in.

The pair played for NSW for the second consecutive year after moving to the Far North Coast from Sydney.

They should both get the chance to bat in the second day of FNC LJ Hooker League cricket this weekend.

Lindsay has been the Pirates best player this season scoring 509 runs and taking 10 wickets.

He will need a big score against Cudgen who finished 8-323 at Meagan Crescent Oval on Saturday.

Lindsay has scored two centuries this season while Casino captain Sam Irvine brought up his third ton at the weekend.
