Bull at a Gate!: Steve Bull Charges Club Record In Round 1

5th Grade’s Steve Bull came within 2 runs off breaking one of the Club’s most sought after records – highest score in an innings held by Dave Moss. Steve’s score of 177 came within a whisker of breaking Mike Riggall’s record for the second time in three seasons after it had withstood all challenges for thirty years. Paul Brown equaled the mark in 2000/01. It highlighted what a good toss to win it is in round 1 as grounds are dirt, bowlers are stiff and fieldsmen few. First Grade didn’t quite take advantage of the conditions posting 170 whilst 2nds put on 298 at a barren Lionel Watts 2. Darren McDermott’s 3rds fought back from a dire position at tea to restrict the opposition to 270 at the stamp sized Lake Park, Blake Conde’s 4ths are chasing 180 whilst Jacko’s 7th Grade development squad captained by Dom Wheeler scored 250.
