New-look Rebels get the win

Central and North Burnett Times - - SPORT -

CRICKET: The Gayn­dah Rebels man­aged to over­come an un­der­strength Gayn­dah Wan­der­ers team at the week­end.

Rebels player Greg Baker was forced from the field late in the day with an in­jury and had to be re­placed.

“Just a bit of wear and tear in­juries to the feet and knees,” Baker said.

“It was an okay game, the Wan­der­ers were pretty un­der strength so we were ex­pected to come away with the win.

“But they did score more runs then we thought they might.”

Baker was re­placed by the team’s 12th man.

The Rebels also in­tro­duced their new look jer­seys for the first time af­ter chang­ing up the de­sign.

“There was no real in­spi­ra­tion for the de­sign, they are sim­i­lar to the ju­nior jer­seys,” Baker said.

“We have six main spon­sors for the team who all help out with this stuff.”
