Virginia takes home the flag

Virginia Cricket Club has taken season honours in the Para Districts A grade men’s division 1 competition, bowling out last year’s grand final winners with the aid of an impressive hat-trick by John Natsias.

Virginia 10/220 defeated Salisbury West, who were all out for 99, on the weekend of March 25 and 26.

The match was held at Salisbury West with Virginia batting first.

Ashley Nicholas 64 not out and Anthony Bascombe 39, top scored, while Justin Davies 5/77 returned the best bowling figures for Salisbury West.

In response, Salisbury West took to the pitch and batted strongly.

Virginia started to sweat but an impressive hat-trick by gun bowler John Natsias when the opposition was at 2/61 helped sway the tide.

Anthony Seccafien was also handy with the ball and finished with figures of 4/48.

The club last won an A grade premiership in 2013/14 and played in the grand final last year against Salisbury West.

Congratulations to everyone at the club.
