Postcode Pete brings up his 50

So all the cracks had gathered for the fray: L-R. Back - Sandro Capocchi, Charlie Walker, Ian Denny, Joe Ansaldo, Peter Smith, Daniel Phillips, Jim Polonidis, John Talone, Dean Jukic and Michael Ozbun. Front - Brendan Rhodes, Ben Thomas, Bede Gannon and Danny Terzini.
Moonee Valley stalwart Peter "Postcode" Smith registered what we think is his first half-century on March 9 - but you won't find it in the scorebook.

Posty brought up his 50 in the Book of Life - his 50th birthday.
Around two dozen players and partners gathered at the Laurel Hotel to mark the occasion, and Pete enjoyed holding centre stage.
A look through the Moonee Valley annals shows scores of 28, 30 and 31, but the closest Pete has got with the bat to the half-century was his 35 in the Fifths in 2014/15.
Our latest Wisden credits him with 746 runs and 303 wickets in a career dating back to 2001/02.
Pete's immensely proud of the contribution he makes to Moonee Valley, and has made either all or some of the afternoon teas week in, week out for more than a decade.
Posty, we congratulate you.
