The cricket lads are winding up their season. The 1st eleven came 3rd in a very competitive competition. They lost the semi-final to the Indian Cricket Club in a close game.
The 2nd eleven will play this weekend and if they win they will go through to the semi-final of the A-League. Good luck to them.
The 3rd eleven have made the semi-final of their league due to an amazing turn of events. They needed one of the top teams, Siam Cricket Club 2, to lose to one of the bottom teams in order for them to progress. Chasing 129 to win, Siam were 100-1 after 13 overs. They ended up losing by 1 run!
The Southerners competed in the Pattaya 10’s last weekend, getting knocked out in the plate semi-final by the Thai Barbarians. The boys made up for an early exit in the competition by having a late exit from Khao San road on Sunday night. We wish Brian good luck in his recovery. He somehow broke his finger and his toe in one weekend. Hard core.
The touchies have been getting great numbers at trainings and are looking forward to their upcoming tour to Hanoi. They will also compete in a local competition at Bangkok Pattana School on May 16. Good luck to them.
The netballers have 3 more games left in their season and play the final on the 24th of May. We all hope our most successful section can bring home some more silverware.
Lastly, the committee would like to ask all members to make an effort to recruit players for all sections. It is coming to the end of the international school year and the club will lose many players. We need to replenish our numbers to remain competitive in all sports.
