The Rock-itt : May 2012
At Bankstown’s Graham Thomas Oval Strathfield won the toss and elected to bat on a superb wicket. As the Minor Premiers all they had to do was bat the two days and see Warringah off but somehow their exalted position combined with the fact that during the normal season they had thrashed Warringah’s 2 nd Grade, seemed to mess up their strategy. The openers went off with a charge and suddenly wickets started tumbling. Nagging line and length bowling from Geoff “Tux” Tucker in 30 overs for 1/52 and a steady 3-26 from 12 overs of Green Shield all- rounder, Jimmy Crombie’s fine mediums meant that Strathfield were bundled out for only 212 in 87 overs. In reply Warringah started off solidly but lost a couple of wickets before close of play and with the score on 2- 96 with Scotty Ryan and Tucker at the crease the prospects of a win the next day looked very good. As always a break in play usually leads to a change of fortune and soon Ryan, Tucker and Raj were back in the hutch with only 144 on the board. Luckily Club stalwart Bassett and Nick Burrows steadied the ship and with no more wickets lost polished off the remaining target and walked them selves into another Trophy, known colloquially to the Green Men as “Tracey”. Warringah has a strong tradition of wining this competition and to add that to the Frank Gray Trophy as well, the celebrations at the upcoming Presentation night in Pittwater RSL in May will make this a tremendous night.
