Dingley defends a meagre score in Grand Final Classic. A tough match played in true Vets spirit

Dingley has claimed the 2023-24 Div 1 Veterans Flag in an extraordinary match at Dingley Reserve.  

More to come as match scores are yet to be posted.  

But in short, In the first innings, Melb University bowled out Dingley for 120 and looked destined to defend their title.
Despite the festival atmosphere of the day, the mood of the home crowd was pessimistic as their team came out to bowl.  
But in an all-out attack strategy, the home side conjured a miracle - opening bowler Danny Law took four wickets with an intimidating spell of fast bowling that left the visitors with no answers.
He was more than ably supported by the rest of the attack and Melb Uni were bolwed out for less than 100 (with plenty of overs to spare) at 6pm.
More to report later, but we can report the game was played in tremendous spirit with both Captain's generous in their support of the efforts of the players and the hospitality of the home side. Well done to everyone for a final befitting the occasion - and well done Molly for all your efforts.
