Men’s First Grade Season Kicks Off

The 1st Grade Men kicked off their season last weekend in three T20 games against Woodville, Sturt and Kensington. The men didn't have too much success over the weekend, with the boys unable to secure a win. The Stingrays named a squad of twelve, including new recruits Tom and Nick Maegraith as well as returning fan favourite and Playing Life Member Nick Bowen.

The weekend wasn't without positives though, Nick Bowen looked good with the bat, after a season year off due to work commitments. Chris Russo also started the weekend well scoring 50 in the first game against Woodville.

With the ball, the wickets were spread throughout the bowlers with Mitch Cuming taking 3 wickets against Sturt.

The lads will be better for the run when the main 1st Grade season gets underway this weekend with a road trip to East Torrens for a One Day Match.
