Vet­er­ans and Gol­drush look for­ward to set­tling score


Kalgoorlie Miner - - SPORT - Josh Chiat

Vet­er­ans and Gol­drush are chomp­ing at the bit to re­new their sto­ried ri­valry in the Kal­go­or­lie-Boul­der Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion at Shep­herd­son Park to­mor­row.

Vet­er­ans cap­tain Ja­son Mur­phy said his team was rar­ing to go.

“It’s a long­stand­ing ri­valry,” he said.

For ex­am­ple, (open­ing bats­man) Bob Wil­son’s been around on our team for 20-plus years, so he’s played against them a few more times and he makes sure the younger guys know about the ri­valry.”

Gol­drush’s Nathan Weir echoed Mur­phy’s sen­ti­ments.

“It’ll be a good game against them,” he said. “It’s a long ri­valry be­tween the clubs.”

The last time the two clubs faced off was in last sea­son’s pre­lim­i­nary fi­nal, when Gol­drush beat Vet­er­ans by seven wick­ets.

Gol­drush had a bye last week­end, but bats­man Bren­dan Brink- worth is com­ing off an un­beaten cen­tury from the week be­fore.

With Dean Curry and Daniel Colling, Weir be­lieves this Gol­drush side will be tough to beat.

“We should have one of our strong­est sides,” he said.

Last week Vet­er­ans won, but strug­gled to put runs on the board against St Ge­orge.

In Sun­day’s other matches, Kam­balda will play Golden City at Kam­balda Oval, and St Ge­orge play Lo­co­mo­tives at Mor­ri­son Oval.
