U13 TEAM WINS 2012/13 FLAG

IMG 2996

A premiership victory capped off a very rewarding season for the MGCC 2012-13 Under 13 squad.

Following a tight race for a finals berth, a place in the post-season was not secured until the last round of the regular season, with Midland Guildford finishing second on the Northern Districts division ladder.

The squad carried their momentum into March, defeating Claremont Nedlands in the semi-final to set up a Grand Final appearance against Wanneroo. Having lost to Wanneroo earlier in the season, the Midland Guildford improvement and commitment went on display in the Grand Final.

Midland Guildford fought hard to set a respectable 123 runs from its 40 overs (Matt Russo 58 no, Joel Curtis 25), but were aware that a disciplined bowling and fielding performance would be required to hold a strong Wanneroo batting line up. The players delivered in the field, building on some early wickets and composure to dismiss Wanneroo for 94 runs (Jack Toohey 4/3, Freddie Cassell 2/18), and bringing home the Under 13 premiership flag for the first time since the 1995season.

MGCC Under 13 Premiership Squad:
