VCCL Country Week

The Ferntree Gully & District Cricket Association performed brilliantly during the VCCL

Country Week carnival held in Melbourne. Playing off in Division 2, the Gully secured wins

against South West CA, Shepparton CA, Sunraysia CA and Yarra Valley CA before taking on

the mighty Murray Valley in the final on Friday at Williamstown.

Murray Valley batting first posted 9/237 from 50 overs and in reply the Gully were in trouble

early at 3/18 only to go down by just nine runs in the end. Knoxfield’s Jack Taylor top

scored in the final with 89 whilst Upper Fern Tree Gully spearhead Todd Burley was the

standout bowler for the week. Another highlight was Tom Boxell’s century on Thursday

against Yarra Valley.

Murray Valley will be promoted to Provincial with Bendigo CA relegated to division 2 next
