Maitland's incredible representative cricket season has netted two titles already with three teams in action on the weekend battling to add to the tally.

Maitland’s under-16 IDCA team completed the major and minor premiership double with victory against Penrith on Saturday in an amazing debut season in the competition.

The Maitland AGL Second XI collected their third title in a row defeating Upper Hunter at Scone on Sunday.

Maitland posted a competitive 208 off 49.3 overs and took regular wickets to dismiss Upper Hunter for 178 in the 47th over.

The Maitland under-14 IDCA team finished runners-up in another incredible debut year and the under-12s will play off this Sunday for fifth in the 14-team competition.

Maitland’s John Bull Shield side will be back in action this Sunday at Robins Oval in the rescheduled grand final against Singleton.

Maitland dismissed Singleton for 239 in the 43rd over and were 2/113 in reply in the 28th over, when lightning halted play and eventually forced the game to be abandoned.

The senior team will be joined by Maitland’s Hunter Valley under-12 and under-14 representative teams in grand final action on Sunday.
