LEIGH McGlynn is full of respect for Mark Haydon and Shane Borella as footballers.
But cricket is a different matter.
McGlynn has the pair in his sights when G.J. Gardner takes on Brad Thompson's Kubic Transport in their Shave for Smithy Twenty20 Big Bash Cup match at Thurgoona on Sunday.
"They used to play cricket for Thurgoona Bulldogs in the Hume association and didn't set the world on fire," McGlynn said.
"And that's being kind.
"I might have a word to Nathan Brown and Daryl Tuffey as 'Melons' (Haydon) doesn't like the short ball.
"As for 'Boonie' (Shane Borella) he runs in to bowl at a million miles an hour and bowls slower than a spinner."
The match has been organised by Thurgoona to raise funds for loyal Bulldog supporter Josh Smith who is battling cancer.
Josh has been the club's water boy for years, as well as being the first port of call for players when they need lifts after matches.
Both sides are loaded with leading Cricket Albury-Wodonga players including Nathan and Ryan Brown, Dave Tassell, Dean Nicholson, Neil Smith and Kade Brown.
The match starts at 11am.
The teams are:
G.J. Gardner: L. McGlynn (team owner), D. Cleary (c), D. Tuffey, G. McLeod, N. Brown, C. Taylor, D. Nicholson, N. Smith, L. Mellier, R. Quinn, J. Felmingham, T. Roberson.
Kubic Transport: B. Thompson (team owner), K. Brown (c), R. Dixon, R. Brown, D. Tassell, N. Hynes, B. Doswell, D. Cassidy, M. Haydon, D. Stockdale, S. Borella.
