A Great Birthday Party
It was a great day at Ballinger last Saturday with a family 6-a-side competition in the morning where 8 sides battled away until a Bowl Out between The Batchelors and The Sharkeys ended with a last ball win for The Batchelors.
The BBQ was in full production with all the food supplied by Riverford Organic who also had an excellent display of a selection of their vegetables. Whilst everyone was scoffing the Presentation of the Junior Section prizes took place. A full list of winners of each age group prize will be available on the web site shortly ( Look under 'Our Club') but the main prize of Junior of the Year was won by Nicky Levy for her contribution to junior coaching during the summer.
The second part of the day was an excellent T20 game between a current Ballinger X1 against a team who were part of the first group of juniors from 25 years ago.
Much to the surprise of all it was a closer game than had been imagined. Whatever the outcome it was good to see everyone at the Club for a great day's cricket.
