MERTON CRICKET CLUB
ON Wednesday, November 23, 10 ladies played a par round for the monthly medal.
It looked like rain so we played in twos, got in early and beat the rain so then we set up for our presentation night.
The monthly medal was won by Jenny Jeong the only player with a plus one score.
Lynne McLean won the extra nine hole event on a count back from Ronda Richards, J Jeong and Jo Goodacre all with minus two.
Balls down the line for 18 holes went to J Jeong, Judi Redfern and Jo Goodacre all on three.
The nine hole balls went to L McLean, R Richards and J Jeong with minus two on a count back from J Goodacre.
Nearest the pin on the 16th went to J Jeong.
November 30 will be a stableford round and December 7 will be stroke event and the next monthly medal.
The chicken run on Thursday, November 24 saw a great field of 27 players again for a par round.
A four way count back was needed to decide the winner, with Joffa Mills coming out on top against Phil Deane, Bob Norris, Ronda Richards and Bill Leviston all on square.
Next week will be a stroke round on the back nine.
Friday, November 25 was the club’s presentation night and it was great to see the clubhouse full.
Our band of ‘Touch and Go’ was great entertainers with everyone enjoying the dancing and the meal by Jo and Pina.
The 40 club raffle was drawn with the winner being Barry Cryer and Brad Morgan.

AFTER a strong victory on November 12 over the Royals, Merton took on last year’s premiers at the Merton Cricket Ground (MCG) on Saturday, November 19.
Merton batted first and made 6/194 with Aaron Place, Adrian Ziedens and Chris Anderson all making runs.
Broadford were in trouble at 4/50, however the middle order batted well and turned the game into a real battle.
The visitors showed their experience by winning the match in the last over with four balls to spare.
Merton played at home again this week against Tallarook.
