Bur­glary just not cricket

Hills Gazette - - NEWS -

A SNEAKY thief stole valu­ables in broad day­light as fe­male crick­eters com­peted in a WACA premier­ship game at Lilac Hill on Sun­day.

Mid­land-Guild­ford Cricket Club trea­surer Dick Hutchi­son said a car key, mo­bile phone and wal­lets were among the play­ers’ pos­ses­sions snatched some time be­tween play and pre­sen­ta­tions at the Women’s T20 Fi­nal be­tween Mid­land-Guild­ford and Melville.

He wrote to the City of Swan on Mon­day ap­peal­ing for a pro­posed up­grade to the 36-year-old fa­cil­ity to be brought for­ward.

“We’ve been in ne­go­ti­a­tions with the City for some months to in­stall CCTV in ad­di­tion to the ex­ist­ing se­cu­rity mea­sures,” he said.

Swan chief ex­ec­u­tive Mike Fo­ley said the West Swan project was at the de­sign phase and con­struc­tion would be­gin early next year ‘sub­ject to fund­ing’.
