Cricketer accused of misconduct
By TONY WHITE
G I Hotel Tucabia-Copmanhurst player Chris Adamson has been cited to appear before the Clarence River Cricket Association judiciary committee.
Adamson has been charged with alleged breaches of the code of conduct arising from last Saturday's match against South Services at Ellem Oval in Grafton.
Code of conduct commissioner Peter Roland yesterday reviewed a lengthy umpires' report from the match before deciding Adamson should be cited.
The judiciary hearing will take place at the CRCA offices at Ellem Oval on Thursday at 7.30pm. It is expected several witnesses will be called to give evidence.
Umpires Jeff Hackett and Allan McFayden officiated at the Tucabia-South game.
It is understood prior to the match, the umpires spoke to both captains ? Damien Rouse (Tucabia) and Brett Woods (South) ?and pointed out requirements involving the code of conduct, dress regulations and playing the game in the right spirit.
Tucabia was in a good position at 3-180 chasing South's first innings total of 288 but collapsed, losing its last seven wickets for 46 runs to be all out for 226.
Adamson was dismissed lbw for 12.
Adamson declined to comment yesterday.
