A rematch of the previous season's Final between the two best teams in the competition with everything to play for! We won the toss and elected to bat. The same track that had been used in the semi-final was in use for this game. What followed was 200 overs of total dedication and concentration to the task at hand. Lindfield bowled very well, but it must be said, fielded poorly, they dropped a host of catches over both days. On day I we crawled to 4/172 off 110 overs. Bruce Hort went early after making (13), Matt Edgerton again displayed great poise and fighting spirit in making (49), Al Mahoney made (34), Mark O’Keeffe was disappointed to go cheaply. Greg Brown came to the crease at l:47pm, Ken Dixon at 3:02 p.m. Both were still there at stumps. On day two they batted on and on, both were still there at lunch. Dixon was dismissed at 2:l6 p.m. for (67), Brown shortly after for (68). It wasn’t pretty, but it was overwhelmingly effective. Your teammates are all grateful. Dave Deller came and made (45) not out. Mark Ramsland was exhausted from the tension and went for (4). Chris Hook was there at the end for (10) not out.
With 20 overs scheduled to be bowled. Lindfield had had enough and we adjourned to the pavilion to savour the joy of a long-awaited premiership. Every one of us had some past disappointment to carry into the game and this was reflected in the commitment and discipline displayed over the two days of the Final. We now had something to treasure.
