Congratulations to Bev Davidson and Deb Smith, who at the close of the competition, played well enough for selection into the Southern Zone team and will play in the Inter-Zone ladies round robin carnival at Wickepin on 17th and 18th of February 2018.
Next Saturday, the pennant competition resumes, and Kukerin travel to Kondinin. This will again be a tough game against the reigning premiers, who have been a stumbling block for many seasons. Kukerin were able to win narrowly in the first encounter this season, so Kondinin will be out for revenge. Club bowls this Sunday, December 3.

The new look team travelled to Wandering, who were enjoying a stellar start to the season. After just managing to scrape together eleven players on the morning of the games, the team’s situation didn’t improve when the toss was lost, and they were sent out to field.
The team started off with the regular right and left arm bowling combination, but this time, is was Scott Gray and Kalan Joyce trundling in. The match started slowly for the tourists, with Wandering’s openers starting to build a solid partnership. Conan Holder was brought into the attack to try and find a spark, and the changed worked. Scott Gray picked up the first wicket of the game, quickly followed by Conan getting one before the score had advanced. Wandering then settled before Kalan came back into the attack and picked up a wicket and Conan again quickly followed. The score continued to steadily build until the new recruit, Zane Watts, was brought on. On the cusp of drinks, he picked up the wicket of Wandering's dangerman. Five overs then went before the Captain threatened a bowling change - it was a great piece of captaining. John Williams, who was toiling away at the other, increased his run-up by 25%, taking it to five steps, and then made the batsmen jump around the crease, fending balls from their throats and picking up two wickets in the process. Zane Watts picked up another couple, and the innings was closed. Wandering made 134 from 37 overs.
The batting line up also received a shake up, with A Frame and Matt Gilfellon opening. Matt Gilfellon assumed the Dame Leo role, belting a quick 14 off the first three overs, before failing in the fourth over. This left Kalan Joyce and Dame Leo at the crease with a fair weight on their shoulders. Unfortunately it wasn’t to be. Dame Leo provided resistance, with a well compiled 33, but apart from a threatening 14 from Conan Holder, there wasn’t much joy from the batsmen. A quick mention goes to Ashley Joyce, who provided some solid resistance at the end of the innings, and with some harder running, would have easily outscored her brother.
This week the team are back at home against Towns. The game will hopefully be held at Dumbleyung. With both teams needing a boost, after a slow start to the season, it should be a good game.
