Wade's cricket finals tips - Week 3

HERE are local cricket writer Wade Gleeson's tips for the third week of finals in the Southern Cricket Association.

First Grade preliminary final: I'm going to go with New Norfolk I to continue on its winning way tomorrow at the Eady St ground. The Red Caps have met Wellington twice this season with the results shared one all, but New Norfolk took the last match by one wicket. Stewart Rice and Harry Booth to post big scores and Seb Wishart and Josh Dykes to clean up with the ball. The winner to take on St Annes at Cadbury's in a week's time.

Fourth Grade grand final: I can't go past New Norfolk II to take out the premiership tomorrow. This team finished on top of the ladder for a reason and it will win in a big way. New Norfolk and Bagdad have met three times this season, with the Red Caps winning on the last two occasions, the most recent being the second semi-final. Glen Williams and Chris Ashcroft to get amongst the runs and young guns Cody Morgan-Coleman and Nathan Rice to take a bag full of wickets between them. This game is at Tynwald Park, so if you're wanting to see some good cricket, head down and see all the action. The match starts at 10.30am tomorrow (Saturday).
