Lo­cal crick­eters shin­ing

Te Awamutu Courier - - News -

Te Awa­mutu crick­eters Peter Bo­cock (pic­tured) and Zak Gib­son were two of the shin­ning lights in North­ern Dis­tricts’ loss to the Welling­ton Fire­birds.

Wick­et­keeper-bats­man Peter Bo­cock top scored for North­ern Dis­tricts with 54 not out, while Gib­son claimed two wick­ets in a tidy 10 overs spell of pace bowl­ing.

North­ern Dis­tricts are des­per­ate to reg­is­ter their first win in the 50 overs com­pe­ti­tion to keep alive their Ford Tro­phy as­pi­ra­tions.

“It will be nice for us to have a cou­ple of games at home. We’ve been trav­el­ling a lot re­cently, so to be able to set­tle in at home for a while can only be a good thing,” said Bo­cock.

“We’re not too far off with our per­for­mances.

“We’ve had a lot of the guys mak­ing good starts with the bat. A cou­ple of us just need to kick-on and get those big­ger scores.

“We’re con­fi­dent we can turn our re­sults around, get on a roll and be right in the mix come fi­nals time.”
