ROBERTSON-Burrawang have taken out their second win in the second grade cricket season.
The team defeated the East Bowral Blues Cricket Club (EBBCC) by seven wickets on October 15 at Welby Oval.
EBBCC was first to bat, but Robertson captain Aaron de Jager said the opposition stated off slowly.

De Jager commended Dale Young on his efforts after he took three wickets for Robertson.
