Saturday’s match was always going to be a special occasion for the Boyle family regardless of win, lose or draw.
The Boyle brothers – Matthew, Daniel, Lachlan and Noah – all took to the field for Mailors Flat in its clash against Grassmere.
But despite their team suffering a five-wicket loss, captain-coach Lachlan said it was a moment they would cherish for the rest of their lives.
"It is a special moment," he said.
"We have been playing together for probably six years across the two divisions, but have only been all four brothers for probably the last couple of years.
"At the moment it is kind of living in the moment, but I guess after everything is done it will seem a lot more real than what it is now.
"It is a bit more special after you've finished the game and stopped playing and you can actually look back on it more than what you do now."
The quarter shared varied individual results throughout the day.
Noah, the youngest of the four, took the bragging rights after claiming 3-32 despite only making three runs.
He was followed by the second older brother Daniel who made 16 runs opening the batting and took 1-26 and Matthew picking up two wickets.
Lachlan, who finished with a catch and two stumpings after making a duck, said most of the time his brothers felt just like every other teammate.
"They do feel a little bit different in a way but at the end of the day we are all there to do a job and that's to hold our catches, take wickets and make runs,” he said
"But I guess there is the case if I am bowling and Noah he drops a catch of my bowling it always means a little bit more than what a normal catch does.”
The brothers admitted it was good to all be on the same team, which was not always the case in during their backyard matches as kids, which Lachlan said were always fierce.
"They were heated and they were long," he said.
"We would always bat about six times each.
"The oldest one (Daniel) he was always a really good cricketer so he wouldn't get as much of a bat as we would."
Mailors Flat batted first at Purnim before being bowled out for just 82 with Shanaka Perumpuli top scoring with 25.
The star of the day was Grassmere’s Adam Ryan who tore through Mailors Flat’s batting order with figures of 6-9.
Grassmere finished at 6/130 off 35 overs with Chris Lenehan the best performed player with the bat making a game-high 36 runs.
