Changes likely for night cricket
THE Clarence River Cricket Association September delegates meeting will be held tomorrow night in the South Services Club starting at 7pm.
Association president Jeff Hackett stated that all club delegates are required to attend this important meeting as all team nominations for the upcoming season are to be advised by all participating clubs.
A notice of motion has been put forward by the South Services Cricket Club which may see a major change to the night cricket competition.
All clubs have received a copy of the motion and hopefully have discussed the proposed changes at length in readiness for tomorrow's meeting.
The association has been advised that the statewide NRMA Cup first round knockout match between Clarence River Association and Lismore Association will be played at Lismore Oakes Oval on Sunday, October 30.
No doubt the Clarence Association selectors, Troy McLaren (chairman), Tony Blanch and Shaun Ulrick will select a strong all-round side with a mixture of experience and youth for the representative season's opener.
The winner will play Ballina at Ballina on Sunday, November 6.
All senior cricket, which includes premier league, second and third grades, begins on Saturday, October 8.
The Clarence River junior competition will start the last weekend in October.
The All River Colts (Under-16) will continue to be played on Friday afternoons which has been a great success and this season's competition is shaping up to be a real beauty.
The Under-14, -12 and Under-10 competition will be conducted on Saturday mornings as in previous seasons.
The North Coast Cricket Council recently held its annual general meeting at Coffs Harbour and its fixture committee is currently in the process of compiling the draw for the inter-district season.
