In-form Albury bowls Belvoir over

ALBURY looks set to finish the CAW season in a blaze of glory after stunning Belvoir on day one of their Provincial clash at Kelly Park on Saturday.

Only a week after upsetting Wodonga, Dan Dixon’s in-form line-up skittled the finals-bound Eagles for 75 and replied with 4-91 before stumps.

Play started at 2.45pm due to overnight rain and Belvoir fell into immediate trouble after winning the toss and batting when star recruit Drew Cameron was out in the opening over.

It only got worse as David Tassell, Kade Brown, Brad Smith and Kal Griffiths made the most of the bowler-friendly conditions to bundle the home team out in the 27th over.

Dixon said it was an outstanding bowling performance.

“It was a really good day for us,” he said.

“There was a bit in the pitch and everything fell into place for us.

“We created a lot of chances.

“The job is only half done though as we are 16 runs ahead and Belvoir will come back hard at us.

“It’s been a good couple of weeks and hopefully we can finish the season off really strongly.”

Brown provided the highlight of the day for Albury when he took a sensational caught and bowled to dismiss Eagles’ captain Ryan McNeil for a duck.
