Welcome to Yacck - we hope you have great pleasure in reading the stories from the past and would love you to make positive comments for everyone to enjoy. The Yacck Team.
There were few highlights on the first day of the 1981-82 cricket season. Eight teams are taking part in the competition.
The SBHS Georgetown game was probably the only highlight of the weekend's play with SBHS only making 103 in the 40 allocated overs and Georgetown looked confident.
Batters, David Monteath, David Beale and Murray Brown all made 19 runs with tail enders only managing 8 from four batters.
Kerry Ferns was the best of the Georgetown bowlers taking 4 wickets for 18 runs.
Georgetown lost Kevin Burns and Richie Dick for only 15 runs. Richard Hoskin was the most runs with 42.
Patrick Bartlett was the only other batter to reach double figures with 10.
It was a combination of good bowling and fine catching that saw the SBHS team win.
SBHS: R. Jackson, A. Thompson, David Monteath, D. Beale, Murray Brown, Gregory Pierce, S. Jackson, M. Hogue, Milton Haig.
Georgetown: Kevin Burns, Richie Dick, Richard Hoskin, G. Cowie, P. Bartlett, N. Clarke, N. Hoskin, G. Ashby, P. Cowan, P. Lamont K. Ferns.
Neil McArthur's 50 was not enough to get past Central Western cricket in 1981.....
Central Western got a score of 176 in just 40 overs when playing against Old Boys in 1981. At 24 for three they were in a bit of a bind but some great hard hitting from Stephen Ashworth (3 consecutive sixes) got his team through to 89.
Ashworth's 59 along with John Lindsay (19) and Bill Lindsay (32) ensured they were going to be hard to pass.
Doug Borne was the most successful Old Boy's bowler and took 3/32 off eight overs.
In reply Old Boy's got off to a quick start and had 24 before a wicket fell. At 98/6 they still looked like they were in with a chance.
Well supported by Neil McArthur with 50 runs that was there lot.
Colin Hampton was reliable as ever, and finished with three wickets for 19 runs while John Wilson took two for 38.
Alistair Mackintosh bats aggressively to get Union a good win over Marist cricket in 1981......
It was left to Alistair Mackintosh for Union who went for 47/4 to 52/8 to get his team out of the hole. With nothing to lose he batted aggressively and apart from Ross Polson (15) and Ross Ovens (14) the other batsmen did not support.
They could not combat Kevin Ward who took 3/10 and Evan MacLellan, who took 3/23 which included a wicket with his first ball.
Union would not have been confident with a total of 92. But Marist faltered right from the start with Paul Kirkwood, Evan MacLellan and Lindsay Salton all dismissed without scoring.
Bob McPate (Old Boys) delivered a good line and length and finished with 4/6.
It was all downhill for Marist and they finished on 71 with Kevin Ward their best batsman on 16 n.o.
John Tippett top batsman at 49 for Appleby cricket in 1981....
Invercargill were batting first, and they managed 124 with Ron Cardno getting a much needed 48 before he was run out.
Roger Pierce supported him well with 18.
Richard Templeton with 2/22 and Terry Stumbles with 2/19 were the best Appleby bowlers.
Appleby would have been regarded as one of the favourites for that season and they confirmed this by losing only 6 wickets to get past Invercargill.
Leading the way was John Tippett with 49 solid runs and Clark Baldwin with 31. Earl Williamson was 18 n.o. at the end.
