MIDLAND-Guildford claimed the wooden spoon in WA Premier Cricket on Saturday but the future looks bright after the club won the colts league on Sunday.

The Monkey Towners defeated Subiaco Floreat by 79 runs in Sunday’s colts grand final at Breckler Park.

Keaton Critchell top-scored with 56 as Midland-Guildford made 207 before bowling out Subi for 128.

Noah Le Tessier was outstanding with 3-30, while Tom Gosling took 2-22.

On Saturday, Midland-Guildford claimed the first grade wooden spoon after a disappointing loss to Rockingham-Mandurah at Lark Hill.

A dominant Mariners partnership was the undoing of the Monkey Towners, who slumped to their fourth last-placed finish in eight years.

Ashley Mucciarone was best of the Monkey Towners bowlers with three wickets as the home side amassed 6-394 in response to Midland-Guildford’s first day score of 260.

The Mariners leapfrogged the visitors, with an unassailable seven-point lead separating the sides.
