CRICKET

WITH the foot­ball sea­son draw­ing to a close it’s time to oil the bat, dust off the gear and get ready to face the first de­liv­ery of the 2013/14 Proser­pine cricket sea­son.

The first game of the year will be on Satur­day Oc­to­ber, 12 start­ing at 12.30pm at the Kelsey Creek Sports Com­plex.

The club are hop­ing for at least four teams in the com­pe­ti­tion this year to en­sure that all teams play each week.

Club rep­re­sen­ta­tive Dale Men­gel en­cour­aged new play­ers to come along and have a bit of fun while meet­ing new peo­ple.

“If you are look­ing for some­thing so­cial to do on a Satur­day while get­ting a bit of ex­er­cise, please turn up on Oc­to­ber 12 and show your sup­port for the lo­cal cricket club,” he said.

“There are no age or skill level re­quire­ments and teams are al­ways look­ing for new play­ers, re­gard­less of whether you are a sea­soned crick­eter or have never played a game in your life.”

They play 40-over games and fixtures are usu­ally fin­ished by 5.30pm.

Un­like many sport­ing clubs, there is no an­nual fee –with play­ers only pay­ing $10 for each game that they play to cover ball fees and to help with the club’s run­ning costs.

All equip­ment is pro­vided if re­quired and there are drinks, food and re­fresh­ments avail­able at the club house through­out the day.

Any­one af­ter fur­ther in­for­ma­tion should con­tact club pres­i­dent Craig Brown on 4945 1983 or Dale Men­gel on 0410 895 191.

SEA­SON FI­NALE: Si­mon Mo­ham­met, Dave Vick­ers, Mick Maxwell, Bryce Fraser, Dar­ron Alder­ton, Chris Wren, Fish Glin­de­man, Pete Smith, Henry Poid, Brad Mer­rit, Hay­den Em­mer­son (back), Craig Brown, Corey Lucht, Liam Davies, Mick Leo, Shane Knight, Llyod Fox (front) and Dave Crook (sit­ting at front) af­ter last sea­son’s cricket grand fi­nal.
