Ghosts go out with a whimper

The Ghosts have missed the 2019-20 finals by just three points.

It means they won’t be able to break their 35 year premiership drought this season.

Former in 1985-86, the Ghosts have never lifted the Sydney Premier Cricket trophy, a dubious record that is set to continue for another in 2020-21.

Last Saturday, needing to win to sneak into sixth spot, Campbelltown Camden hosted Hawkesbury in the final round of the premiership.

The visitors, who were close to wooden spoon territory on the ladder coming into this match, proved too strong for the Ghosts.

Hawkesbury won the toss, elected to bat and proceeded to smash the Ghosts bowlers to all parts of Raby Sports Complex for 50 overs.

The visitors made 268 off their allotted 50 overs and lost seven wickets in the process.

In reply, the Ghosts limped to seven for 129, having faced just 17 overs by stumps.

Jaydyn Simmons made 62 before he was run out, while the only other score of significance was Jackson Isakka’s 20 batting at six, pictured above.

In the bowling department, Sam Skelly picked up three wickets, but they cost him 63 runs off nine overs.

Luke Courtney picked up wo wickets for 53 off 10 overs, but all up it was a disappointing end to the season for the Ghosts.

But there’s always next year – coronavirus permitting.
