Goulburn Murray Cricket will have a representative team play off in a final for the third time in two weeks on Sunday when the under 13s vie for the McPherson Shield.
The team has a tough match away against Bendigo, which won all three of its pool matches.
Goulburn Murray’s only loss from four games came against Bendigo, only scoring 88 in reply to the opposition’s total of 2/150 from 40 overs.
However, co-coach Darren Wright goes into the match with high hopes of winning as he expects a much stronger Goulburn Murray team this time around.
‘‘We were beaten by Bendigo last time, but we didn’t have our full side in, so we have a pretty fair chance of knocking them over,’’ he said.
‘‘We only made 88, but we had our top five batters out that game.’’
Wright said it was a good effort by the team to make the final.
‘‘We started off with 18 in the squad and everyone got a game throughout the four (round) games.
‘‘That was the main thing.’’
The team defeated Seymour three weeks ago to qualify for the final, but Wright said the bowlers needed to sharpen up after conceding 45 extras for the match.
Wright also thanked co-coach Barry Moyle for his influence, describing him as ‘‘a good bloke to have around’’.
‘‘He has been the team manager, but I regard him as an equal coach,’’ Wright said.
‘‘I wouldn’t want anyone else on my side
‘‘This was a job I got asked to do at the last minute and I’m glad I did it.
‘‘I’ve learned a lot and met a bunch of good kids.’’
Wright and Moyle will take a squad of 13 to the final, with one sub fielder, one non-batter and one non-bowler, getting as many involved as possible.
The match will be played at Harry Trott oval from 10.30am.
Team: Todd Murphy, Hudson Moyle, Jorge Maxwell, Billy Gallagher, Sam Langley, Elijah Gillie, Charlie Hinks, Dylan Wright, Carter Williams, Paul Brians, Jack Duggan, Tyson McCoomb, Harry Dent.
