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.
