Veterans and Goldrush look forward to settling score
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.
