Fell Looking To Revive Mount Lawley Fortunes After Flying Down Under

Fell Looking To Revive Mount Lawley Fortunes After Flying Down Under

Tom Fell will be hoping he can revive Mount Lawley's fortunes after arriving in Australia to play grade cricket for the next three months.

The Worcestershire batsman flew out earlier this week to link up with the Perth based club who compete in the Western Australia Cricket Association first grade.

Mount Lawley are currently lying 14th out of 16 teams in the competition with 12 points from seven games.

This weekend Fell and his team-mates are due to entertain fourth placed Bayswater-Morley on day one of a two day encounter.

International players who have played for Mount Lawley include Chris Matthews, Ashley Mallett, Terry Jenner, Geoff Marsh, Colin Milburn and Dermot Reeve.

Earlier this season they faced Aussie pace bowler Mitchell Johnson who finished with 5-30 after turning out for Wanneroo.

In the same competition, Alex Hepburn's side, Willetton Dragons will be for better luck with the weather when they visit Freemantle for the start of a two-day match.

The final day of last weekend's match with visiting Gosnells plus two T20 matches were washed out.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore's club, Penrith Panthers, will have a chase down a 300 plus score to achieve victory for a third time when their Sydney Grade Cricket first grade match away to Gordon CC continues.

Gordon will resume on 308-8 from 96 overs in their first innings.

George Rhodes team, North Canberra Gungahlin, will begin their final two-day match before the festive break at home to Weston Creek Molonglo in the ACT Premier Cricket first grade.

County all-rounder Rhodes will be looking to continue the form which brought him 4-68 and 42 in the losing draw with Western District UC.

Academy opener Ollie Westbury's side have lost top spot in the Bunbury Cricket Association first grade after back to back defeats against Leschenault and new leaders Colts.

They will play their final 50 over match of 2015 at home to Dalyellup Beach.
