Teams set for sea­son ac­tion

ATKIN­SON TO MAKE CAP­TAINCY DE­BUT

Weekend Courier - - Sport -

TO­MOR­ROW marks the of­fi­cial start to the cricket sea­son with both sec­ond and fifth grades in ac­tion.

Sec­ond-grade will start their cam­paign at home against Kardinya Lakes.

Kardinya Lakes, new to sec­ond-grade this sea­son, will be look­ing for fast points to get them un­der­way.

Kwinana will be look­ing to for­get a poor 2016-17 sea­son and make their way back up to the top of the ta­ble.

Josh Atkin­son will be mak­ing his cap­taincy de­but with some good pre­sea­son form to con­tinue on with.

Kwinana is new to fifth-grade and will be look­ing to jump-start the sea­son with a win against East Fre­man­tle at Henry Jef­frey Oval.

East Fre­man­tle fin­ished fourth in fifth-grade last sea­son, but went down in the semi-fi­nal.

Mar­cus Draper and the team will be look­ing to take down a fi­nals con­tender and get some mo­men­tum early in the sea­son.

It has also been con­firmed that Kwinana will have two one-day teams this sea­son.

The high­est of the one-day grades will be One-Day Cs. Cs will be cap­tained by club coach Steve Ni­chols and will be look­ing to make fi­nals again this sea­son and go one step fur­ther to the grand fi­nal.

The sec­ond of the one-day grades will be One-Day Fs. David Lang­lands will be re­turn­ing as cap­tain and look­ing to get as much ex­pe­ri­ence as pos­si­ble into his young team.

The one-day grades sea­sons be­gin next week.

Club pres­i­dent Dave Ab­bott would love to see ev­ery­one in­volved with the club at the game to­mor­row and in­vites the com­mu­nity to come down to Orelia Oval and cheer on the lo­cal lads and bring glory back to Kwinana.
