Premier league problems

By TIM HOWARD sport@dailyexaminer.com.au

EAST Royal Tavern Cricket Club has shocked organisers of the Bananacoast Community Credit Union Premier League cricket competition by pulling out of the top grade.

Clarence River Cricket Association president Jeff Hackett said he received the news late on Tuesday night.

"We had just done a draw and I was about to get it out to all the clubs when I took the call," Hackett said.

He said East will field teams in second and third grades, which will mean changes in the draw.

"In premier league it will create a bye and we will be looking to play more one-day matches," he said.

For the first round of matches on October 8 and 15 South Services will play Brothers at McKittrick Park and Tucabia Copmanhurst will play Harwood at Ellem Oval.
