Valleys aim for back-to-back success

CRICKET: With little change to their player roster, Valleys are hopeful of winning two competition shields on the bounce.

Valleys captain Damian Anderson said his side were looking strong, with an old face set to make a come back to bolster ranks.

“Back to back. That’s the plan,” Anderson said.

“The side is looking good. Pretty much got exactly the same player’s and the return of Charlie Moncada to the Stanthorpe competition after an absence of 10-12 years will definitely strengthen us.

“If things go to plan he’ll be scoring lots of runs for us.”

Much like last season, Anderson expects every team to challenge for finals.

Between RSL, Valleys, Wanderers, Souths and Tenterfield, success is their for the taking.

“From what I gather the other sides are looking good.

“Brock Patti is going to be captaining Wanderers which I think is a good move to get the young guys actively involved.

“There’s a bit of young blood coming through and trying to get into the rep sides which can only be good for the whole comp.

“Really any of the teams can make finals. At the start of last year Wanderers were having this amazing run but fell away.

“Any team can win on the day.”

For Anderson, his side’s season starts with a grand final replay this Saturday against RSL.

With junior cricket also resuming the same day, C.F White Oval will be the place to be for cricket enthusiasts.
