Sum­mer sport has started in the Rive­rina. In Di­vi­sion One cricket, Ber­ri­gan has started the sea­son with two wins and both by the nar­row­est of mar­gins. Con­nor Thornton has been su­perb with the bat and Lach­lan Pyle took three wick­ets on Satur­day.

Well done and we look for­ward to see­ing this young side be­ing com­pet­i­tive this sea­son.

Di­vi­sion Two played at home on Satur­day and the cap­tain was out look­ing for play­ers to fill the side.

Darcy Pyle put his hand up and de­buted in his first se­nior cricket game and made two runs. Matt Whe­lan also played, along with his dad, James, and younger brother, Lach­lan, who helped in the field along with James Curtin.

At the other end of the scale ex­pe­ri­enced player Joe Karakai also donned his whites to help the side put some runs on the board.

Un­for­tu­nately Ber­ri­gan was beaten but it was a great ef­fort to all who helped out to get the side on the field.

Cricket train­ing is on Tues­day and Thurs­day night from 5.30pm for se­niors, and un­der 12s’ train­ing will be at 3.30pm on Thurs­day af­ter­noons. All wel­come.

Bowls also started on the week­end with both di­vi­sions play­ing at Ber­ri­gan.

Di­vi­sion Four were short of play­ers but by Satur­day morn­ing they had a side and fin­ished the day with an im­pres­sive win.

Di­vi­sion Two were not so lucky and were well de­feated.

If you are in­ter­ested in play­ing bowls or help­ing out when needed please get in con­tact with Matt Hansen at the shire of­fice.

On Satur­day night 100 peo­ple en­joyed the Johnny Cash Trib­ute Show. A great night was had with plenty of danc­ing and singing.

Last Fri­day, An­gela Ed­nie was in­volved in a bike ac­ci­dent and is now re­cov­er­ing in hos­pi­tal in Mel­bourne. We all wish An­gela a speedy re­cov­ery.

With the year quickly pass­ing, the Night Mar­ket will soon be upon us.

The com­mit­tee is work­ing hard to en­sure an­other suc­cess­ful event.

Santa will at­tend and there will be plenty of stall hold­ers to buy from.

There will be more in­for­ma­tion in the com­ing weeks.
