Corowa Cricket Club President Mark Tidd pictured presenting the signed Peter Siddle bat to junior Jacob Beveridge.

A Grade went down with an over to go in their one day game against Greta at Greta.
With unavailability hitting the team hard and 7 players out from the previous game, the Roos with the help from some veterans were able to get a side together and captain Nathan Rhodes won the toss and elected to bat.
With a slow outfield and an uneven pitch the Roos added 21 for the first wicket before Shane Norman went for 10.
Tom Miegel went shortly after for 5 to leave the Roos 2 for 29.
Nathan Rhodes was hitting the loose balls to the boundary and was looking good until he went for 20 to leave the Roos 3 for 48 in the 17th over.
Kodee Lowe and Brady Bartlett added 49 for the 4th wicket but with the wicket playing tricks and the slow outfield it was hard for the Roos to increase the scoring.
Brady went for 16 and Darcy Collins made 6 before being run out on the last ball as the Roos made 5 for 116 off their 40 overs.
Lowe was the mainstay of the innings making 41 not out.
In reply the Roos made a good start with Brady Bartlett and Nathan Rhodes both collecting an early wicket each to have Greta 2 for 6.
A 33 run partnership was broken by Darcy Collins and when veteran Rod Gulliver made an important breakthrough, the Roos were in the game with Greta 4 for 49.
Collins then captured the big wicket of Squires as Greta fell to 5 for 58 after 20 overs.
But sensible batting by Greta enabled to reach the Roos target losing only one more wicket as they passed the score with 6 balls to go as they finished their 40 overs at 6 for 122.
Gulliver turned back the clock with a great bowling display taking 1 for 10 off his 8 overs.
Brady Bartlett bowled without luck to take 1 for 15 off 8 overs while Rhodes with 2 for 22 and Collins 2 for 20 also bowled well.
B Grade
B Grade went down in both 20/20 games played in Yarrawonga.
In the first game against City Colts, the Roos asked Colts to bat first and bowled well to restrict Colts to 7 for 118 off the 20 overs.
Josh Tidd after taking stick in his first over came back well to take 3 for 18.
While Luke Backhouse bowled will to take 2 for 21 off his 4 overs.
In reply Greg Burgess made a quick 23 but after his wicket the Roos fell away as they slumped to 6 for 63.
John Schnelle (20) and Scott Wilson (21) tried to get the Roos over the line but they were bowled out in the last over for 106.
In the second game against Rovers United Bruck the Roos were asked to bat first and fell away early to fall to 5 for 25.
Scott Wilson (33), Sam Kleis (14*) and Jack Bartlett (13) tried to set a target but the Roos were bowled out in the 18th over for 96.
In reply RUB did it easily as they passed the score in the 15th over with the loss of only 4 wickets. Everyone was given a bowl as RUB finished their 20 overs at 5 for 125 with Greg Burgess taking 1 got 3 off 2 overs and Luke backhouse taking 1 for 5 off 2 overs the best of the bowlers
C Grade
C Grade had a big win over Beechworth in their game at Beechworth.
With both sides struggling for numbers, it was the battle of the juniors with the Roos juniors coming out on top.
Bowling first the Roos were great as they dismissed Beechworth for 96 in 32.1 overs.
Liam McDonell collected 3 for 31 off his 8 overs while juniors Deaken Clancy 2 for 7, Mak Lavis 2 for 10 and Jacob Beveridge 2 for 9 all in the wickets.
In reply the Roos cruised to victory only losing 2 wickets before passing the score as the Roos finished their 36 overs at 6 for 249.
Liam Carter was the mainstay of the innings making 64 while McDonell made 48.
Junior Tom Weaver smashed 48* which included 3 boundaries and 3 sixes while other juniors Clancy (18), Will Seymour (11) and Darcy Melksham (10) all made some runs.
