Towns Cricket Club capped a superb season by winning the Lindsay Scott Shield for the first time in about 10 years last Sunday.

Towns went through undefeated in the Upper Great Southern Junior Cricket Association under-13 competition to claim the title.

The competition comprises seven teams, and Towns won all six of their games to sit at the top of the table ahead of the second-placed Kondinin Kulin, while Pingelly-Noonebin and Williams finished third and fourth respectively.

Towns’ Lucas Grieve who plays for Towns, was the competition’s leading run scorer with 168, while fellow Towns player Bryce Pauley claimed the most wickets with six scalps for the season.

Towns coach Andrew Grieve said he was proud of his team.

“They all improved throughout the season and displayed awesome sportsmanship,” he said.

“It was a fantastic season for our young team being undefeated for the season, and the team consisted of a wide range of ages and ability.

“The organisation of the season by the UGSJCA gave a smooth and enjoyable season of cricket and it was amazing to see new clubs involved.”
