Sawtell set sail towards silverware
Opposition teams in the North Coast Cricket Council Premier League will be hoping the bye combined with the holiday break has taken the wind out of Sawtell’s sails but you wouldn’t count on it.
The competition’s benchmark will take to the field for their first game of 2019 when they tackle Star Hotel today.
Despite the two sides sitting at opposing ends of the ladder, you can be guaranteed Sawtell captain Richie Gallichan will have his troops on song for the contest.
A win for Sawtell means they will be closing in on this season’s minor premiership, while a win for Star Hotel will keep their fading finals hopes alive.
The Macksville-based side have had a tough season to date in the Premier League, and have yet to register their first win. The Sawtell v Star Hotel game is being played at Richardson Park from 1.30pm.
HITTING OUT: Sawtell have been the benchmark this season.
