Local cricketers shining
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.”
