BROTHERS Social Touch president Geoff Kirkman was pleased to report their second season for 2006 ran without a hitch and finished with a great set of finals on the weekend.

Mr Kirkman said 51 teams had competed for the season, with only one day's play cancelled due to wet weather. Brothers Cricket took out the Open A-grade division, defeating East Enders by six points.

In the Mixed A-grade Super Charge Crushers defeated the Sugarland Tavern and in the Over 30s A grade Ascot defeated Trench Diggers 5 to 3.

Mr Kirkman said with work under way to light a ninth field at the Brothers grounds, they could take more teams, but were in need of referees.

"We can take a little bit more, but the refereeing is a problem," Mr Kirkman said.

"We would like to have a higher number of referees - we pay $15 per game for refs and provide a uniform."

The competition is expected to start again in early February.

Existing teams will automatically be re-nominated, but new teams should telephone Mr Kirkman on 4155 1854 in January.
