CRCA to discuss damaged Ellem Oval sight screen

THE DAMAGED northern sight screen at Ellem Oval may be one of the talking points at tonight's Clarence River Cricket Association meeting.

The sight screen and the fence surrounding the field look worse for wear, with sections of the screen and palings snapped or simply missing.

Council reportedly fixed the fence just three weeks ago, but a quick assessment yesterday found the hard work was undone.

Another major topic will be the format of the CRCA Night Cricket competition.

In recent years, clubs have played a full round of 30-over fixtures under lights on Monday nights.

Last year, the redevelopment of McKittrick Park was a shortened Twenty20 version take place.

Upon returning to McKittrick Park, the CRCA will discuss proposed changes such as a possible permanent move to the 20-over format.
