Wanderers need team effort to roll Bruck

BRENTON Surrey is calling on his batsmen to lift when Beechworth Wanderers take on Bruck at Bruck Oval today.

Last round Kayde Surrey posted his second half century in a row, but other than Mitch Howe (49), the Wanderers provided little support in a total of 186, which only just fell short as Corowa reached 197 to bank an 11-run victory.

“Bruck has been the perennial powerhouse of the competition over the past few years,” Surrey said.

“They haven’t started well but they’re starting to get themselves into gear now.

“So we’ll have to bat a lot better than we did last week, and if we put a reasonable total on the board I’d say we can take it to them.

“We bowled pretty well last week, I can’t really fault the effort of the bowlers and I thought all of them did a terrific job — we just didn’t have runs on the board to defend.”

Surrey said there was no focus on how his opposition was travelling.

“We just try to focus on ourselves,” he said.

“If we get most things right for ourselves things will take care of themselves.

“We’ve just got to make more runs to give ourselves something to bowl at.

“Kayde has been going very well but if he goes well and no one else contributes it’s not going to work — it’s a matter of everyone chipping in.

“Everyone needs to do their part, we have to make sure we’re busy at the crease.”

Matt Hunt will no doubt lead the attack with the ball once more, having returned figures of 7-30 last week.

With a pitch generally good for runs, the Wanderers will have to dig deep to come home with the points.

“We probably haven’t gone too well there for a few years,” Surrey said of Bruck’s home ground.

“They’ve been a very strong side and it’s always been tough there.

“But you always take the challenge up, you go in with your best foot forward and see how you go.

“We’re a different side to what we have been and I think if we can play well enough we can definitely beat them.”
