Unique team heads to Country Week

NO doubt questions will be asked if Cricket Albury-Wodonga isn’t successful at Melbourne Country Week next week.

The association has been at the crossroads in this competition for the past decade and you can understand why some people doubt whether it’s sustainable to continue in the lowest division.

All I know is that we’re going to have a mighty crack at it.

If we are triumphant next week, it will cap off one of Cricket Albury-Wodonga’s most successful representative seasons and this will probably be the last time the group of guys will play together from the Englishmen to Sri Lankan to 36-year-olds.

It’s a unique team.

You have to be prepared for anything at Country Week as shown last year when we turned up for the final only to find out that the ground wasn’t prepared.

It just shows how hard it is to win down there.

We play Seymour first-up on Monday followed by Warragul, Central Gippsland and Shepparton and you simply can’t afford to slip up if you want to make Friday’s final at Bayswater or Preston.

I’m really happy with our side but the proof of the pudding will be in the eating.

Things happen that are spoken about forever and go down in folklore — good and bad.

We’re overdue for some good.
