The Mullumbimby-Brunswick Heads Cricket Club are hosting the Far North Coast Coastal League Grand Final against Murwillumbah after beating Tintenbar in the semifinal last Saturday.
After finishing the season in second place, Mullum-Bruns played Tintenbar-East Ballina in the semifinal last Saturday at Stan Thompson Oval in Bruns. ‘We bowled them out in a rain-reduced game (of 35 overs) for 135 runs,’ said club captain Dan Raccani.
The bowler did a real great job on the day with Adam Gadowski 3/14, Ben Forsyth 2/16 and Luke Shelly 2/24.
‘Our top order all managed runs with a great performance by young Evan Litchfeild (29 not out), and our skipper Ben Forsyth (37 not out) guiding us home with five overs to spare.’
Mullumbimby-Brunswick 3/139 ended with a win by seven wickets and the lads now have a home grand final after minor premiers Terranora went down to Murwillumbah.
The final will start at 1pm on Stan Thompson Oval and promises to bring silverware back to the local club for the first time in three years.
