After a fabulous lunch provided by the Manly parents Jake Osborne and Ned Barnet walked out to chase down 227l on a flat Manly Oval deck. We didn’t get off to an ideal start, with inform Jake Osborne falling in the first over. Bringing Kyle Martin to the crease. With Barnet and Martin forming a 43 run partnership (being the biggest of our innings), Barnet fell. Brewster fell not long afterwards and not long after that Martin as well. After a brief little cameo from Aidan Bennett wickets fell in clumps. A complete collapse at one point losing 4 wickets for only 2 runs we were in massive trouble. Eventually we were bowled out for 85.
I believe this result does not replicate our character throughout the season. Winning 4 from 6 games and narrowly missing out on quarter finals berth, we showed great spirit all the way through the season. Largely due to support from our coaches Tom Kaye and Mike Pawley. Along with the Management of Ross Denny and Clint Colyer we were in good hands.
