Manypeaks are eager to taste premiership glory as they start the new Albany Cricket Association A-grade competition on Saturday.

The consistent Peaks have played in three of the last four grand finals against Railways and will once again be pushing to make it to the big dance.

Harry Broomhall having scored 276 runs last season and Englishman Dominic O’Reilly (26 wickets) will be major losses for Manypeaks this season, along with Wicket-keeper Tim Shephard who has moved to the Bulls.

Manypeaks will regain Declan McNamara and Paul Donaldson while David Pyle will also come into the team.

Veteran all-rounders Ryan Kinnear, Myles O’Meehan and Warrick Durrack will also be important players if they are going to push for a flag.

Captain Aran Tilbury said his players wanted to be more consistent.

“We need to be more consistent with the bat this season. Last year we probably missed out a few times,” he said.

“We need to get some wins on the board before Christmas, then we will see how we are going.”

Manypeaks will go in with a similar side to the one they had in 2018-19, only having three changes. They open their season against Collingwood Park on Saturday.
