St Michaels hope a new year will provide the fresh start they desperately need.

Saints are yet to win a match this season and are looking to get off the mark against Wagga City at McPherson Oval on Saturday.

With four losses and two rain-affected draws, St Michaels captain-coach Ryan Forsyth is looking to turn things around.

“I still don’t think we have been that far away and there has been times, in at least a couple of games, where we have had our opportunities but haven’t taken them,” Forsyth said.

“Now it is a matter of just winning games and if we don’t our season is going to fade away pretty quickly.”

Saints will also be boosted by the return of Tim Byrnes and James Elliott.

Byrnes was set to play in the last round before heavy rain saw no play.

Forsyth believes their experience will be a valuable addition to the batting order.

Wagga City will be without coach Jon Nicoll on Saturday due to his Australian Country Championships campaign.
