Atherton yet to find form on pitch

IT was another lose for Atherton Cricket over the weekend, going down to “season favourites” Rovers on home turf.

After winning the toss and heading to bat, they soon learned their choice wasn't the best, with Rover’s putting their best bowling performance.

Captain Tom Boorman said it was a slow start as they struggled to keep partnerships going strong. 

“They’ve got a really good bowling attack actually … and we got off to a pretty slow start,” he said.

“Caleb Constant and I put on a partnership for a bit and then I fell to a stupid shot, but then positives of the game were Caleb making 38 not out and young Charlie Lawerence who early second game made 46.”

Atherton now has a break before the local derby next weekend against Mareeba at Borzi Park.
