Added incentive for Legana victory

TOP team Trevallyn faces a challenge from arch rival Legana when their heritage game is held tomorrow as part of the TCL's 12th round.

Trevallyn is on top of the ladder after being beaten only twice throughout the season while fourth-placed Legana is still in contention.

Legana has the incentive of performing well in its heritage game with many of the club's former players in attendance for the day, along with special guest Premier Lara Giddings.

"We're still in contention and it's a game we probably need to win," Legana captain Matty Wells said.

Wells will be back in the team after missing the game against Uni-Mowbray because of a hamstring injury.

Last week's star was top-order batsman Garry McCarron, who hit an unbeaten 103, and Wells said he was looking for him to score again.

Younger brother Kurt Wells came into the team and finished with 4-27, ensuring his selection.

Trevallyn captain Damien Whybrow said his team hadn't been playing to its full potential and he expected a tough battle.

The team will look to in-form batsmen Glen Gleeson and Matty Crocker again but will have to find a replacement for unavailable bowler Mathew Woods.


ACL captain Sean Barry is the first to admit batting is a weakness in his team.

With just two wins for the season, ACL finds itself on the bottom of the ladder and a tough run home to the end of the season, but Barry remains upbeat.

"We made 151 against Hadspen last week but unfortunately we lost wickets in clusters and that is something we have to try and overcome," he said.

Tomorrow ACL is at home to Longford and will go into the game without batsman Robin Hodgetts, who is unavailable.

Longford is coming off a loss to Beauty Point but will go into the game as favourite and will be looking to Anthony Taylor and Robert Moore to continue their good form with the bat.


In what promises to be one of the games of the round, Hadspen and Beauty Point do battle in a crucial encounter for both sides.

Both are coming off big wins last week with Hadspen hoping to be among the runs again.

Beauty Point accounted for Longford by seven wickets and was led by Jason Savage, who made an unbeaten 138.


Diggers and Uni-Mowbray are coming off losses last week and both will be searching for much- needed wins tomorrow.

Diggers will have the advantage of a home wicket and will look to captain David Tulloch and Troy Price to score runs again.

Uni-Mowbray struggled against the powerful Legana last week but will find tomorrow easier.
