Open­ing week­end of cricket aban­doned

Dalby Herald - - SPORT -

CRICKET: The new cricket sea­son got off to a false start this week­end as Mother Na­ture took away any chance a ball be­ing bowled in the open­ing week­end.

Both round one fix­tures were aban­doned on Satur­day morn­ing due to the rain from the pre­vi­ous evening.

It was not all doom and gloom for the as­so­ci­a­tion, as young­sters headed down to the club on Satur­day morn­ing to sign-up for the ju­nior sea­son.

Roughly 50 ju­niors turned up to the associations sign-on day with many more ex­pected to join be­fore the sea­son starts this Satur­day.

Trea­surer of the Dalby Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion, Lor­raine Mon­aghan, said all ju­niors still wish­ing to play can join.

“If there are any kids in the re­gion who could not make it down last Satur­day, we en­cour­age them to come to the grounds this Satur­day morn­ing,” she said.

“We will be able to sign them up and place them into a team for the sea­son.

“Cricket is great fun for kids, and it is very so­cial as well.”
