Matches rained out
CLAREMONT-NEDLANDS, University and Subiaco Floreat’s Round One Premier Cricket matches on Saturday were abandoned due to poor weather.
Heavy showers across the Perth metropolitan area on Saturday made playing conditions increasingly difficult. Claremont-Nedlands were away to Mount Lawley, University at home to BayswaterMorley and Subiaco Floreat at Fremantle.
All matches were due to start at 10.30am, however the WADCC Management Committee believed it was in the best interests of players to cancel all senior grades, under 5.7.4 of the WADCC General Rules.
The decision was based on the feedback on facilities given by majority of the clubs, with the impeding weather also taken into consideration. All fixtures will be deemed a draw, leaving the competition even heading into Round 2 next weekend.
Weather will be a continuing issue in the opening rounds, with every player’s safety a priority for the WADCC.
