New nets ready
BOORT-YANDO Cricket Club’s new nets were officially put to use for the first time on Thursday,
The club hosted a thank-you event for volunteers and business supporters who contributed to the project.
Loddon Shire Council also gave the club a $10,000 grant towards the new nets.
Meanwhile, the club is more than half-way to achieving its $10,000 appeal target for further improvements at its home ground at Boort District School Oval.
The club wants to build a new facility that will include a large open shade area with equipment storage room and kitchenette and barbecue area. More than $6400 has been donated to the appeal that started last November.
The club’s under 13 side will begin its finals campaign in the Northern District association on Saturday when the young colts come up against Barham in the qualifying final.
In last Saturdays round, Boort Yando 6-66 was defeated by Murrabit 2-77.
Murrabit bowled exceptionally well taking some good wickets and dismissing Boort’s openers early. Best of the bats was Luke Boyd 25 not out while Jacob Malone and Finlay Arnold were key wicket takers.
