Brothers' core of stalwarts vow to keep helping club
BROTHERS captain Craig Cumming agreed it was Centrals' bowlers who made the difference in their do-or-die first division cricket match yesterday.
"We were disappointed in the end. It was a perfect wicket to try and get the 180 runs and they did bowl well,'' he said.
"They (Nick Vellacott and Luke Barrett) are two totally different bowlers.
"I think Nick bowled well on that deck.
"It was a pretty batter friendly deck and he was getting them to nick around a little bit.''
However, in welcome news for Brothers, stalwarts Cumming, Jacob Sarra, Craig Mackay, David Richardson and Mark Sharrad were keen to play on.
"From what we were going through last night, everyone is going to try and back up again,'' Cumming said.
"If we keep that same side together - the old and the young - it's a good mix and everyone gets on.''
Among the club's exciting prospects are Taylor Peach who battled through Saturday's hot conditions to compile 85 opening the innings.
After making a late start to the season recovering from his own surgery, Cumming said his side exceeded expectations.
"To make the one-day final and be that close to even making the semi-final for the season, I thought it was a really good effort from all the boys,'' he said.
