Gary Greelish Reserve, Yarraville, Victoria
The Seddon fourths are all out for 163 just before stumps. Time for the scorers, the Seddon skipper/wicketkeeper and the opening bowler, to make sure everything adds up. In the second day’s play St Francis de Sales made 230 and then collected three Seddon wickets. It was St Francis de Sales’ first game in the North C2 section of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association, having won the C3 flag last summer.
The Gary Greelish Reserve is at the bottom of Yarraville Gardens and across the road from an industrial site that’s home to shipping containers.
The Seddon Cricket Club’s main ground and clubrooms are just a stone’s throw from the fourth’s home ground. The senior teams enjoy a home-made scoreboard in club colours.
See Wicket to Wicket for details of Seddon’s first innings, including an unbeaten 81 by opener Micheal Penlidis.
