FINAL REPORT :

 

   In its fifth season of existence, Macquarie University was into its first final. The signs were promising. The game was at home, the semi-final had resulted in an emphatic win over Burwood with Peter Miller making an undefeated 155, Captain Frank Alley had taken a remarkable 79 wickets to date and the side had recorded nine outright victories. Having won the toss, the batting did not take control, with only Paul Smith (22) and Martyn Mills (27) making any early impression. The innings was held together by Captain Alley with (64), the highest individual score of the match. John Slack (15 not out) made a useful contribution to a potentially vulnerable total of 173, which only lasted a disappointing 40 overs.

   However, the bowlers were up for the challenge. Auburn could not withstand the swing and seam of Peter Miller, Frank Alley and John Guiffre. Their first innings’ total of 70 was scored at less than two an over. Batting a second time, Auburn again found the Macquarie bowling too great a task and at 8 for 62, were facing a defeat by an innings. The last two wickets rallied to ensure that Macquarie had to bat a second time, requiring two deliveries for outright victory with Martyn Mills hitting the second ball to the boundary. Match figures for the bowlers were Peter Miller, 6 for 43, John Guiffre 7 for 43 and Frank Alley, who finished the season with an all-time Shires ’association record of 86 wickets, 7 for 79. This was the remarkable conclusion to a stunningly successful season, the side recording ten outright victories.
