Harwood cricket hope for big year

HARWOOD  Cricket Club, which is hopeful of winning the Lower Clarence Cricket Association 2012-13 minor and major premierships in all grades, will hold  sign-on for the new season at Harwood Oval from  9-11am on Saturday, September 15.

This is timely news, given that the season has not started yet,  and gives potential players the opportunity to participate in winning teams, including juniors, first, second and third grades.

"While it's traditional to determine the outcome after the season, we feel that this doesn't afford sufficient opportunity to players who want to win the competition," Harwood Cricket Club secretary Anthony Young said.

"By announcing the results now, we expect we can accommodate all players who want to participate in our successful, family friendly club."

The Harwood Cricket Club is among the oldest on the Clarence and is steeped in a rich history of competition and fair play.

Perched beneath the oldest operating Sugar Mill in Australia, the scenic Harwood Oval is a great place to enjoy the camaraderie of cricket.

All of the Harwood players who haven't yet played the coming season will be able to bask in the glow of participation and competition, confident that they will be in the winner's circle come March next year.

Even if they haven't played before, they can look forward to specialist coaching and state-of-the-art training facilities. Boys and girls are welcome.

"The Harwood Cricket Club sign-on is occurring at the Harwood Oval on Saturday, the 15th of September," Young said.

"Come down, bring a friend, be a part of the living history of the grand old dame of Lower Clarence Cricket, and get fitted for your baggy blue, to be awarded after the formality of winning."
