GCA - The heat will be on Youth Club when round two of A grade Grampians Cricket Association matches get underway tomorrow.
Youth Club would be bitterly disappointed with its performance in the opening one-day match against Aradale last week, making just 44 runs and were all out after 23 overs.
However, the task for the Clubbers just gets tougher with the side playing host to reigning premiers Tatyoon at Stawell's North Park.
Although they are set to regain key players Todd Matthews, Angus Barham and Cam Kimber, who will be looking to do some early damage should Tatyoon bat first.
Youth Club's batting is a concern and the likes of Steve Le Gassick, Jamie Solyom, Phil Hall and Ethan Marrow, who made a combined total of three runs against Aradale, need to step up and take the game on against Tatyoon tomorrow.
Matt Delzotto was the Clubbers top run scorer last week and he will need to navigate his way around Tatyoon's bowling attack, led by Tim McDougall, Jake Williamson and Michael Harricks, if he is to continue his good form.
On the flip side, Youth Club bowlers face an uphill battle against Taty's leading batsmen Jarred Blandford, Ash Maconachie and Andrew Ward.
Following a narrow loss in last weekend's grand final replay, Swifts/Great Western will be looking to bounce back against Buangor tomorrow at Buangor Recreation Reserve.
However a win to the home side can't be discounted, after it put on a solid opening round performance against Pomonal.
Swifts/Great Western bowlers must be at the top of their game and it is going to be an intriguing battle between Marc Brilliant, Jackson Dark, Tom Eckel and Jamie Bach up against Buangor's Tyson Carr, Jack Fraser, Harry Ganley and Ben Hargreaves.
Carr was the Association's top A grade run scorer last weekend after making a half century and the Combine will be itching to remove him early.
Swifts/Great Western's leading batsman, Travis Nicholson had a shocker against Tatyoon in round one, failing to score, so he will be ready to get out there and perform tomorrow with support to come from Sam Cocks, James Devery and Gary Ranton.
Buangor bowlers Ben Hargreaves and Harry Ganley struggled to claim wickets last week, and will be looking to fire against the Combine, helping out teammates Chris Jerram and Jarred McGuiness in the process.
After destroying Youth Club last weekend, Aradale is seeking to record back-to-back wins in the A grade competition.
It plays host to Pomonal tomorrow at Aradale Oval, but must bring their best game to the ground as the Tigers showed vast improvement against Buangor.
Paceman John Butler ripped through the Clubbers lineup last week, proving he is a force to be reckoned with, while Brent Tate and Matt Stasse are also handy bowlers that Pomonal batsmen Lachie Green, Alex Malligan, Rick Oliver and Scott Spark should be wary of.
Tigers bowlers Lee Oliver, Brett Gay, Matthew Grinham and Al McKay didn't have much luck in round one and will be hoping for a much improved effort on the Aradale wicket tomorrow.
