Midland-Guildford Crowned Colts Premiers
26 February 2017  

Midland-Guildford claimed the wooden spoon in WA Premier Cricket on Saturday but the future looks bright after the club won the Colts League on Sunday.

Midland-Guildford defeated Subiaco Floreat by 79 runs in Sunday’s grand final at Breckler Park.

Keaton Critchell top scored with 56 as Midland-Guildford made 207, before bowling out Subi for 128.

Noah Le Tessier was outstanding with 3-30 while Tom Gosling took 2-22.

Midland-Guildford won the toss and elected to bat, but started poorly losing Le Tessier and James Kirwan for ducks.

Hayden Cobley made a quickfire 40, but the Swans slumped to 5-66, with Jack Retallack taking two wickets, before Critchell and Jack Baker (46) revived the innings.

The pair put on 83 runs for the sixth wicket before Hamish McKenzie (3-41) dismissed Critchell caught and bowled.

Midland-Guildford moved beyond 200 before being bowled out in the 50th over.

In reply, Subi lost wickets at regular intervals, although they still seemed well placed at 2-59 before opener Ben Parker was stumped off Le Tessier.

Drew Watson fell shortly after Parker, with Gosling taking his wicket to trigger a collapse where the Lions lost 3-8.

Ross Williams (21) and Baillie Waller (18) rallied for the Lions but it was too little too late, as Le Tessier claimed his third wicket before Subi were bowled out for 128.
