Edwards Reserve, South Kingsville, Victoria
Appearances can deceive. The scoreboard suggests Williamstown Colts are playing. In fact the one-day game at Edwards Reserve on Saturday 17 November was between victorious Spotswood (all out 230) and Sunshine Heights Knights (8/220).
Edwards Reserve is a small, plain suburban ground in Melbourne’s western suburbs. Basic brick pavilion. Bumpy surface. Kids play in the cricket nets or on the half-size basketball court. Or on the timber playground. Goods trains rumble by regularly. The 432 bus now and then. Milk bar around the corner. And impressive clouds.
