Stallions recruit hooked after one training session

Colac recruit Chris Dendle has been one of the Stallions’ top performers in his first season at the cricket club. Dendle and his Colac teammates will take on City United in a KFC Colac Twenty20 Big Bash semi-final on Sunday.

The unpredictability of each match and vibrant club nature is what Chris Dendle has most enjoyed since crossing to the Colac District Cricket Association.

Dendle crossed to Colac from South West association club Heytesbury this season, helping his new club to reach Sunday’s KFC Colac Twenty20 Big Bash semi-final against City United.

One training with the Stallions, following coach Simon Harkness’s appointment as coach, was all it took to get Dendle to sign on the dotted line.

“Harko, the coach, is one of my best mates, so he got the job over in Colac and I told him I’d come over for a training and I was pretty rapt with how the cricket club ran.

“The amount of kids there was unbelievable and having three sides it was a pretty good experience; at Heytesbury numbers were pretty lean, and we didn’t really have a junior side.

“The boys are really good, they’re all legends, it’s been a good experience so far, they’ve all been really supportive, even from day dot, the first training, everyone gets around you.”
