TIGERS’ SUPER STREAK
Railways Cricket Club have left a significant imprint in the Albany Cricket Association record books, one that may not ever be challenged as they completed one of the most dominant seasons on record with a sixth A-grade premiership.
Having already rewritten the record books last season, becoming the first club to win five straight A-grade titles, only a round 1 blemish prevented a perfect season as the Tigers stormed to a seven-wicket triumph in Saturday’s grand final.
Captain Zane Marwick, vice-captain Nathan Crudeli and veterans Tim Edmunds and Ryan Tindale are the four players who have been in all six of the Tigers’ premiership winning streak.
In an unprecedented premiership run that began back in 2013-14, the Tigers have beaten arch rivals Peaks and North County on three occasions each on the biggest day of the season to deliver their club the most successful era since its inception in 1977.
Having captained the past four premiership teams, Marwick said the players will cherish the memories of this golden run.
“Definitely this year is right up there,” Marwick said.
“We feel the competition is so strong. To perform as well as we did throughout the year, each grand final gets harder to win so to continue winning and put up fantastic results is really special.
“It’s a special moment for the group, and potentially those moving on.
“I feel we’ve left the club in a good spot to continue to be at the top of the association for years to come.”
