Olders and Betters

Those old boys reading the sports results in today's Daily News might be a little disappointed that the 1st XI lost their latest two day game by an innings and a few runs, although Bryce Hannam did get his picture taken.

It is true that the team is struggling a little at present but that is largely due to the fact that so many of the recent stars have left school and the new boys are still finding their way. Something that will always be a factor with school sides in a men's competition.

One thing that did stand out was how many of the opposition players doing the damage for Marist were FDMC old boys. Names like Mawson, Meuli, HIckford, Peterson and countless Barretts, all appear as our tormentors. It is great to see so many of our past players continuing to play and it speaks volumes for the sports nursery that FDMC has become.
