The Singleton Iriwinians Cricket Club secured their second A grade premiership in three years after defeating Waroona last Saturday.

Having finished the regular season as minor premiers, Singleton did the double by chasing down Waroona’s score of 138 at Lark Hill to announce themselves as a force to be reckoned with in the Peel Cricket Association.

Man of the match Ian Bowes was instrumental in the win, acting as chief destroyer with the ball taking 4/11.

Joseph Senz (41 not out) and Danny Woolard (25) did the damage with the bat as Singleton ran home comfortably, finishing 5/139.

Club President Ian Jack said he was ecstatic for the club and the result showed that all the hard work over the last year had paid off.

Singleton recruited heavily in the off season as well as securing the services of Chris Loveridge as senior coach.

The champion A grade team were not alone in success with their F grade side also winning the premiership from fourth spot.

They took on minor premiers and hot favourites Halls Head at Laurie Stanford Reserve and were able to chase down 155.

Co-captain James Pearson lead the way with a superb 42 before Kristian Toy finished the job with a brilliant 40.

Daniel Franklin also came in at a vital time, hitting three sixes to spectacularly cap off Singleton’s premiership win.
