Cricket into new pas­tures

Mansfield Courier - - SCOREBOARD - By PETER HUNT

THE an­nual gen­eral meet­ing of the De­latite Cricket Club was held last week, end­ing one era and in­tro­duc­ing a new one.

Pres­i­dent Ken Cousins wel­comed a large gath­er­ing to the Mans­field Ho­tel to celebrate the end of the Be­nalla Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion and the get­ting ready for the new hori­zons of the Wan­garatta as­so­ci­a­tion.

In his pres­i­dent’s re­port, he high­lighted the highs and lows of the sea­son.

“It was another suc­cess­ful sea­son, with both grades again claim­ing sil­ver­ware in their re­spec­tive T20 com­pe­ti­tions,” he said.

“The two ‘big’ fi­nals were a dis­ap­point­ment un­for­tu­nately, with both grades fall­ing at the fi­nal hur­dle.

“Other no­table high­lights of the year were Peter Scales’ 200 games, Colin God­ber’s 100 games and life mem­ber­ship, club rep­re­sen­ta­tives at Mel­bourne Coun­try Week, Be­nalla Coun­try Week and Ju­nior Coun­try Week and the day/night Pink Stumps game.”

Mr Cousins con­grat­u­lated all vol­un­teers and helpers for their en­deav­ours dur­ing the sea­son.

Elec­tion of of­fi­cers for the forth­com­ing year were pres­i­dent - Ken Cousins, vice pres­i­dent - Aaron Mad­sen, David Foster - sec­re­tary, Todd How­land - trea­surer and com­mit­tee mem­bers Naomi Camp­bell, Tammy Pur­cell, Matt Steven­son and Dean Shaw.

Cap­tain/coach of the club is Matt Steven­son and cap­tain of the sec­onds will be James Bartlett.

The new Wan­garatta as­so­ci­a­tion sea­son will be­gin on Oc­to­ber 10.
