Mullumbimby Brunswick Cricket Club’s third graders kicked off the season with a seven-wicket win over Lennox Head playing at home on Lofts Oval last Saturday afternoon.

Lennox Head, the reigning premiers, batted first and Dave Thomson top scored with a productive 61 in Lennox’s total of 125 from 24 overs.

Their march was cut short by Hamish Lang who was the chief destroyer for Mullum-Bruns taking a five-wicket haul as he made his long-awaited comeback. He finished with the figures 5/11 off just five overs.

His opening partner James Clarke contributed with a very healthy 3/29 off his eight overs.

The Mullum-Bruns opening pair of Heath Godbee-Johnston (19 runs) and Jared Carr ensured a comfortable victory. Jared hit the high score of the day with 75 runs that included six sixes and nine fours.
