Hanwood and Coro will battle it out on Saturday evening at Exies Oval with fundraising for an important cause taking place on the sideline.
The colour pink will be spread around the field with Hanwood using the game as a chance to raise money for the Jane McGrath Foundation by holding a Pink Stumps Day.
Organiser Ben McInnes felt it was a great charity to get behind because of their active involvement within the community.
“It is a cause that will affect us in one way or another,” he said.
“I was reading a stat the other day that said two in five women we know have been affected by breast cancer.
“They do fantastic work for those affected, and that is why we chose to go down this road.”
Hanwood will be holding raffles on the night with plenty of prizes including meat trays and gift vouchers up for grabs and McInnes wanted to thank the businesses who got behind their initiative.
As for the game itself, it will be both sides first timed match for the season and will be hoping that will see both sides moving up the table.
Coro is yet to pick up a win this season while Hanwood’s only win so far came against the Cougars back in the first round of the season.
Hanwood captain Charlie Cunial is hoping that a returning opening batsman will fix some of the issues plaguing the side early in the season.
“Brad Hornery will be back in this weekend, and we might also get Jason Bertacco,” he said.
“We haven’t been able to set a good total yet this season and having him (Horney) back could fix one of our weak points so far this season.”
Cunial feels the makeup of his side should have them in a good position heading into the first timed match of the season.
“We have plenty of bowlers who will be able to bowl the extra overs so it will just come down to our performance with the bat,” he said.
Cunial has also praised the performance of young Ben Rowston who has made the most of his step into first grade. The game will get underway at 4.30pm on Saturday.
