At our best we can do anything: skipper

BELVOIR skipper Ryan McNeil believes his team can do some damage if it produces its best form during the Cricket Albury-Wodonga finals.

After limping into its first finals series since 2008-09, McNeil said the Eagles were eager to make the most of the opportunity against East Albury in today’s semi-final at Alexandra Park.

“We ended up on the bottom of the ladder last year and our aim was to make the finals,” McNeil said.

“It shows how far we have come.

“There is no pressure on us, it’s all on the opposition.

“Anything can happen from here and it’s just a matter of which Belvoir turns up on the day.

“We have under-performed in the last two games, but when we perform at our peak I don’t think many sides in the competition want to play us.”

Belvoir has shown its best is good enough by defeating fellow finalists Tallangatta and Lavington while the Eagles also went close to upsetting St Patrick’s in round 6.

But consistency has been the problem and McNeil is hoping finals will bring the best out of his charges.

“We just see it as a great opportunity,” he said.

“A lot of work has gone into our improvement and it’s a good chance for the boys to go out and give it everything.

“Not many people thought we would be here.”
