Ocean 12 have had a mixed start to the season. We lost our first game badly and then went onto win comfortably for 2 games. Last Sunday we lost by 2 runs. We were definitely the better team and the men were very disappointed.
Next Sunday we play at Greystanes ( Darling Park ) at 12.30. Always love support.
The amazing news is one of the men playing on Saturday scored 121 runs. He really is outstanding and has already picked up a 50% sponsorship. This means he can get his own bat and some shoes suitable for a turf pitch. Our grants will pay 50% and Absolute Sports the other 50%.
I have just ordered our own Ocean 12 Shirts. Players will be in Orange with black trim and supporters in Black with Orange trim.
The team has been together for a year. Its very sad as their individual cases are still where they were a year ago. They are fine young men and deserve a chance. Some were fisherman,some farmers other mechanical engineer, research scientist ,multi media editor, IT specialists.
Anne Marie and I are very proud of them all.
