ADCA 2023-24: Important clashes in round 15 as Mt Barker chase points, Manypeaks out to win successive games
Mt Barker will play their first match post country week on Saturday when they take on Collingwood Park while the in-form Manypeaks play ladder-leading Royals in round 15 of the Albany and Districts Cricket Association A-grade competition.
Park will do battle with the Bulls at Turf North and Peaks will play the Lions at Turf South with both 50-over matches starting at 12.15pm.
The Bulls’ last match came in their T20 double-header on January 6 where they took big wins against Railways and the Lions.

This time they will be buoyed by returning star all-rounders Jeremy Wood and Nathan Crudeli who were on Country XI duties during the T20 fixtures.
The Bulls currently sit eight points adrift of the Lions on the ladder each with 10 games played.
Park will be desperate to get back into the winners’ circle with their last one-day win coming nine rounds ago in November against Peaks.
The red-hot Peaks, fresh off a dominant double triumph over the Tigers, are geared up for their upcoming clash against the Lions, fuelled by the hopes of a finals berth.
While the Lions enter as heavy favourites, Peaks look to be finding form in their push for a spot in the top three.
The Bulls and Peaks will have the chance to score more valuable premiership points when they face-off in a T20 at Turf North on Friday at 4.15pm.
The T20 grand final is already confirmed with Bulls set to play Park, but with three points up for grabs, both teams will be chasing wins to close the gaps on their rivals.
