The side has struggled to take regular wickets with the ball, leaving them down in 15th spot at the halfway mark with only one win so far.

Ashley Mucciarone and William Riley have eight wickets each, while Jack Baker (five wickets) reached 50 first grade games shortly before Christmas in a boost.

Keaton Critchell has been Midland-Guildford’s stand-out performer so far this season, with 290 runs at an average of 42.57.

The Monkey Towners have struggled without Tim Armstrong and Stewart Walters this campaign, but Corry Verco has joined for the back-half of the season from Mt Lawley.
