Nana Glen end season for Tigers
THE result of Coffs Hotel Tigers appeal against losing 10 match points tonight is purely academic after they meekly surrendered against Nana Glen on Saturday and confirmed that even if they get their points back, the Tigers will not be a part of the finals action this season.
Returning to the line-up and taking over the helm of the Tigers, former Sydney grade player Daryl Parmenter was a very disapointed man after play as it was the same old issues that have plagued his club all season that sounded the final death knell for the season.
"We all put in but as usual the saying 'Catches win matches' applied here," he said.
"When you put down 10 or 11 catches through the game, it's hard to get back from there."
Batting first, Nana Glen compiled a hard earned 170 thanks to the top three batsman all getting off to a good start.
Matt Andrews terrific form this summer continued as he compiled a solid 34, David Owen top scored at the top of the order with 43 while Damien Elks made a timely return to form with his 28.
In reply, five Tigers batsman returned to the pavillion with a duck next to their name and fell 52 runs short of trying to make the finals.
Parmenter himself top scored upon his return with 35 but received very little support as the Tigers failed to build any partnership as they choked under the constrictive pressure of tight bowling from Nana Glen's captain Andrew Mainey and Dylan Sambrook.
The pair bowled all of their overs in tandem and only allowed the opposition to score 37 runs during the 18 overs they were rolling them over.
The lack of runs from some of the talented youngter's in the Coffs Hotel's line-up is what disappinted Parmenter the most about not only the game but most of the season.
"I think looking at next season that a few of the young blokes really need to step up," he said.
"They need to learn that they can't be happy with making 20's and 30's and really they need to decide what they want to do."
