Yandina rejoin Sunshine Coast cricket’s top division after 14 years

Yandina have returned to Sunshine Coast crickets top division after an absense of about 14 years.

Captain Joel Bock won the toss and sent Caloundra in to bat

With the threat of rain ever present, the Pioneers handed the ball to Brandan Coleman to deliver the first ball.

Three and a half overs were possible before the rain took hold.

“We just started getting our length right,” Bock said.

“Obviously with all the rain we knew it was going to be about.

“So it was a fairly handy toss to win.

“It’s easier to start bowling again than it is batting.”

The game recommenced at two thirty with the hosts getting to six for one hundred and twenty one.

The inclusion of Yandina means that eight teams are contesting the top division.

“Yeah it’s good,” Caloundra captaib Matthew Burton said.

“I think if the Coast wants to keep developing cricket they’ve gotta keep as many teams playing as high as possible.”

All 11 of Yandina’s players made their first division debuts.

“We’re chuffed,” Bock said

“It’s a real honour for the club”.

In other games we have scores for, Tewantin Noosa are 3 out for 87 batting first against Nambour, Caboolture are 8 for 152 against Glasshouse. Coolum is 6 for 97 in their Division two A game against Glasshouse.

Palmwoods currently lead their Division 3B game by 213 after fielding first and bowling Caloundra out for 72.

Two of the three fifth division games were abandoned due to the weather.
