Mer­ton Cricket Club is ac­cepted into Seymour league for 2015/16

Mansfield Courier - - PROPERTY GUIDE - By PETER HUNT

MER­TON Cricket Club has fi­nally found a new league.

At a meet­ing on Mon­day night the club was ac­cepted unan­i­mously into the Seymour league for the 2015/16 sea­son.

The de­ci­sion ends the limbo fol­low­ing the dis­band­ment of i t s f ormer league, and its un­suc­cess­ful at­tempts to join Shep­par­ton and Wan­garatta as­so­ci­a­tions.

The club will field a team in Seymour’s B Grade com­pe­ti­tion along with Eastern Hill, Broad­ford, Kil­more, Avenel, Seymour, Nagambie, Tal­la­rook, Puckapunya­l, Roy­als, Pya­long and Alexan­dra.

“All these clubs have turf wick­ets, which is some­thing we will have to look at down the track,” club pres­i­dent Bernie Cum­mins had told mem­bers dur­ing the club’s an­nual gen­eral meet­ing last week.

“All the games will be one day­ers.

“We have re­tained many play­ers but we will need a large num­ber for the sea­son.”

Maybe due to the con- cerns in the club, a large num­ber of 24 mem­bers turned up last week’s meet­ing.

Mr Cum­mins re­ported on the past year which was one of suc­cess - the club hav­ing won t he Trewin Shield.

He said the club is also fi­nan­cially sound.

Elec­tion of of­fice bear­ers saw Mr Cum­mins re­turned as pres­i­dent, Max Bransden (vice-pres­i­dent), Eavis Cum­mins (trea­surer) and Ross McKin­non (sec­re­tary).
