Batting bolstered

EXCHANGE: Bright will have to do without Reuben Jamieson (main) for much of the season as he recovers from a foot injury. Twin brother Kieren Jamieson (inset) will lead the Wanderers in the 2016/17 campaign.

AFTER two consecutive top four finishes both resulted in straight sets finals exits, Bright is hoping improvement with the bat will help it to reach a grand final in Wangaratta and District B grade cricket this season.

Following a season in which the Wanderers often struggled to put enough runs on the board club president Andrew Badrock says the club has added to its batting stocks.

Badrock said it was even more important that the B grade side improve with the willow with strike bowler Reuben Jamieson unlikely to be bowling until late in the season as he recovers from injury.

“Our batting wasn’t great last year, we bowled pretty well in games considering our batting hurt us,” Badrock said.

“Instead of us going out and having a total to bowl at we were always trying to defend and scrape together a victory.

“But we have a solid core group and a few other guys returning to the club that should strengthen us with the bat.
