Geelong City captain Jack Driver was the hero, hitting four sixes when his team needed 21 runs off four balls to beat Bell Park in the GCA2 Firsts, reports the Geelong Advertiser.

The Sharks were 8-170 chasing 193 entering the final over, and it got even worse when Driver’s teammate Adam Marsland was bowled first ball.

Geelong City captain Jack Driver was the hero, hitting four sixes when his team needed 21 runs off four balls to beat Bell Park in the GCA2 Firsts, reports the Geelong Advertiser.

The Sharks were 8-170 chasing 193 entering the final over, and it got even worse when Driver’s teammate Adam Marsland was bowled first ball.  “I just said (to the next batter), ‘try and hit it so I can get down (the strikers) end’,” Driver told the Addy.

“There was probably two (runs in it) when he hit his and we just settled for one. I always thought if we needed 20 off the last over we could manage it and luckily the ball was where I wanted to hit it and I got a few out of the middle.”

Driver got on strike and hit sixes off the first two balls he faced, leaving nine off two to win. He missed the next ball, but it was called wide by the substitute umpire - his teammate Tom Treble, who replaced the original umpire who had to be hospitalised after knocking himself out when trying to get in position for a run out.

Driver then hit two more sixes off Daniel Maclean to complete the remarkable win - but the vanquished opponents were good sports about it and drank with the victors afterwards. “A few of (the Bell Park) guys just said it was good hitting and there was nothing they could do so it was just one of those games where it panned out for us and not for them,” Driver said.

“I’ll take a few drinks on the night but it’s only a game in November so hopefully it’s a building block for us to continue on for the rest of the season.”

BAGGY BLUE DEBUT!
In round 3 Club Legend, Gary Iacono presented Shane with his first Baggy Blue for his 1st XI debut against Bell Post Hill. Shane joins us from Ashwood Cricket Club in Melbourne, the club that famously kicked off the careers of Dean Jones, Paul Reiffel and who could forget Adam Chunk Rolfe.

Shane is a medium fast right arm bowler and hard hitting lower order batsman. He played 89 games with Ashwood taking out the bowling honours in the 2015/2016 season with best figures of 7/61 and a highest score of 100 no.

AN IMPORTANT CRICKET COMMUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT

We have been advised by the GCA that the number of GCUA umpires for the upcoming season will be significantly depleted whilst current COVID restrictions are in place.

In order to shore up umpiring numbers, the GCA, along with the GCUA, would like to put a call out for expressions of interest from within club ranks (such as members, supporters and past players) to see if anyone is interested in being an umpire -  at least in the short term...

The GCA/GCUA are looking to recruit people who have a genuine love of the game, are prepared to undertake the Cricket Australia 'Community Officiating Umpire' accreditation (cost is $40.00, which the GCA will pay for) and are also prepared to work with senior GCUA umpires to demonstrate a knowledge of GCA playing conditions.

If you or someone you know is interested please get in direct contact with GCA Secretary Peter Edwards at peter.edwards@geelongca.com OR contact the club and we will get you in contact with the GCA.

SKIN SCREEN SIGNS!

Skin Screen - Skin Cancer Clinic has partnered with Geelong City Cricket Club for Season 2020/21. The Skin Screen Clinic noted "
We are Geelong’s first specialist practice dedicated to skin cancer early detection and treatment. We offer skin checks, mole mapping, biopsies, treatment and x-ray therapy in a purpose-built clinic led by a radiation oncologist. Our partnership with the Geelong City Sharks is an obvious fit. As a summer sport, cricketers get exposed to the sun for many hours throughout the summer."
President Graeme Beaumont stated "This is an essential partnership for our players at the club. It’s important to get your skin checked regularly so that you and your specialist get to know your spots".
 
The Skin Screen Clinic added "Over time moles can change and it’s vital to identify any suspicious changes as quick as possible. No matter your skin type or background, everyone benefits from getting a skin check. To be seen by the GP for a skin check or mole mapping, no referral is required." 
 
Either call the clinic on 0352437378, or check appointment availability via our online booking system at http://skinscreenclinic.com.au/
WE ARE BACK

The clubrooms will be back open on Thursday evening with lasagne, salad and chips on the menu. COVID restrictions will apply with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating.

This weekend our 1st, 2nd & 3rd senior men's teams, junior teams and our new senior women's team, kick off. We look forward to seeing everyone at the club as we announce teams for the first round. Go Sharks
