Dockers Through to Grand Final

Our 1st X1 are up against Sunshine United in the Grand Final over the next two weekends (18,19, 25 & 26 March) at Laverton Park, Oval #1, Cnr Merton St & Hall Ave, Altona Meadows (Laverton home ground), Mel. Ref (53-F/10). Take the Newland Street turnoff when heading westbound on the Princes Freeway.

Last weekend the Firsts defeated Druids in a close encounter to advance to the Grand Final. It was a fantastic team effort, with the highlights being:

  • the spin duo of Tom Kriebardis and Hayden Dryiski taking four wickets each and reducing the Druids to 138 (when it looked like they could make much more)
  • the 89 run fourth wicket partnership of Mark Webb (52) and Duleeka Thissakuttige (49) after coming together with the score on 3/6
  • Liam Braithwaite and Tom Kriebardis guiding the lads over the line to secure a spot in the GF.

Please come down and support the Firsts over the following two weekends. After an excellent turn out of club supporters last weekend, it would be fantastic to see more Dockers supporters wearing club colours! We know the players appreciate the support from the sidelines.

The committee would like to personally thank the efforts of Mark Webb (coach) and John Taylor (captain) in guiding the 1st X1 to the VTCA North West Division Grand Final this season.
