Premiership brace: Albion sealed the B and C-grade premierships.

Albion completed a lower-grade premiership double on Saturday.

A two-wicket defeat of Kooka Gold at Donnelly Fields sealed the B and C-grade double for the club.

But it came in a low-scoring thriller.

Kooka Gold mustered its way to 81 in 25.2 overs, with Mick Densley (19) and Troy Beasley (17) the leading batting lights.

Jason White (3-7) and Ashley White (3-13) proved the pick of Albion’s bowlers.

What looked a more than gettable chase was made especially difficult as Kooka Gold had Albion in a tricky spot at 8-44.

But that man White of the Jason variety played a match-winning hand.

He found an ally in Aaron Osmond (4no), with the dynamic duo steering Albion home courtesy of a 38-run partnership.

White finished unbeaten with the best 38 of his career.

David Callaghan (3-12) and Luke Ellis (3-15) bowled lion-hearted spells for the vanquished Gold.
