IT’s been a long time since the Grassmere Cricket Association has seen the likes of what Killarney produced on the weekend.

The Crabs took out the A grade, B grade and C grade premierships – something association vice-president John Parkinson says hasn’t been done for quite some while.

“It may have been done by Panmure, but a very long time ago – and I’m talking a very long time ago – so it is a bit of a history stance,” he said.

Killarney club president Brett Sanderson, who captained the B grade side to victory, said things had come together at the right for the Crabs as they managed to pull off the incredible hat-trick of flags.

“Probably two months ago we probably couldn’t really imagine doing this. We had a lot of players missing and it’s pretty much a dream come true,” he said. “We knew with our best team on the ground, that we’d be pretty competitive in all grades. I’m just rapt for the club.”
