Colts eye three in a row
Bunbury and Districts Cricket Association champions Colts are making a concerted bid for a three-peat of premierships, according to club president Jaysen Miguel.
Having enjoyed the plaudits of premierships over the past two years, Miguel and his mates say they have tasted the joy of defeating Eaton and are hoping to do it again.
Throughout last season, the Eaton Beavers looked the team to beat, but they were undone by a solid team effort.
In a massive coup for Colts, Country XI wicket keeper-batsman Paul Jones has signed on.
A player who has the ability to win a game on his own, Jones will add plenty of firepower to the reigning premiers’ depth.
However, the champions will also have to plug up some holes, with a few players departing from the Bunbury Recreation Ground.
They include James Anderson, who works away in South Korea, while promising young opening batsman Jayden Goodwin has signed a rookie contract with the WA men’s cricket team and will play his club cricket for Subiaco-Floreat.
In addition, big Blaize Rosinski and ex-BDCA champion Lee Sorfleet have moved back to Marist, while tragedy struck pace bowler Jon Boyle a couple of weeks ago, with a football ACL injury requiring a knee reconstruction.
Miguel is confident his team will put up a good show with skipper Cruize Ciallella, Joe Birmingham, Josh Topliss, Ethan Kelly, Rory Binnie and Riley Miguel propping up the bowling.
Colts’ second grade side looks impressive as well, with Miguel likely to captain alongside Brian Hughes, Dylan Bairstow, Graham Milligton, Ryan Risdon, Jarrod Back, Tony Ciallella, Sam Lefroy, Jono Lee and Rory Binnie.
