Demons aim to go one bet­ter this sum­mer

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - SPORT -

AF­TER fin­ish­ing sec­ond in the club cham­pi­onship last year, Perth Cricket Club (PCC) is look­ing to go one bet­ter when the sea­son be­gins this week.

The Demons will open their sea­son with a one-day home game at Fletcher Park against Joon­dalup on Oc­to­ber 8.

PCC com­mit­tee mem­ber Brad Gor­don said the club had a num­ber of tal­ented young play­ers who would strengthen the side.

“We’ve got play­ers such as Jonathan Wells and Josh Nicholas, who’ve rep­re­sented the Western War­riors. Mark Atkin­son has been added to the coach­ing panel; he rep­re­sented WA in the 1990s,” he said.

“Some of the young play­ers we ex­pect to make an im­pact over this sea­son and into the fu­ture in­clude Liam Guthrie, Ai­dan Enright, Nick Fitzger­ald and Bren­ton Wil­liams, who are all look­ing promis­ing.”

Mr Gor­don said he de­scribed last year as “fan­tas­tic but frus­trat­ing.”

“To fin­ish sec­ond in the club cham­pi­onship, which takes into ac­count all the four grades, was very good.”
