The big wet hits home

By TONY WHITE

SODDEN pitches and wet outer grounds have forced the abandonment of all cricket in the Clarence River Cricket Association (CRCA) tomorrow.

Some teams have played just one game in over two months and cricketers to a man are frustrated at the spate of inclement weather.

CRCA president Jeff Hackett said yesterday afternoon, a decision was made, due to the state of the grounds, to call off all cricket.

In Premier League GI Hotel Tucabia-Copmanhurst were scheduled to take on Brothers Post Office Hotel at Ellem Oval and Westlawn Crown Hotel down to play South Services at McKittrick Oval.

Lower Clarence Cricket Association president Matt Ardrey said the situation down river was no different.

"There is little chance of any cricket," he confirmed. "The grounds are too wet."

Harwood were drawn to tackle Lawrence at Barry Watts Oval and Yamba against Wanderers at Yamba.
