SUSSEX Inlet made its return to the Shoalhaven District Cricket Association second grade in the opening SDCA round of the 2016/17, with a valiant effort against Bomaderry.
Leading the charge were openers Sussex Inlet openers Jake Westley (70) and Kurt Regan (68), who shared a partnership of 135.
That total, at Sussex Inlet Oval, equalled the club record for that division.
The total it equalled had been established back in 1996-97, by Paul Daley (70) and Bruce Carter (47) against Central Districts.
Fourth grade also saw a club record partnership broken by Nowra’s Darren Trewin (76) and Grahame Morris (68 not out) in the clash with Bay and Basin at the weekend.
They put on 149 runs for the fifth wicket at Added Area.
This total eclipsed the previous best for this side, which was 103 by Stuart Garrigan (66) and Chris Harding (44) against Berry-Shoalhaven Heads, back in 2001-02.
