KARUAH RSL Club-sponsored Karuah and District Cricket Club is still on the lookout for new talent for the coming season to bolster its ranks.
Anyone looking for a game is encouraged to attend training on Tuesday afternoons from 4.30 at Karuah, and Tea Gardens on Thursdays.
Alternatively, contact Graeme Johnson on 0418 973 049 or Sam Rees on 0421 599 148.
Karuah and District Cricket Club takes in Karuah and surrounds and Tea Gardens areas and has enjoyed reasonable success in the last couple of seasons.
This season, teams have been nominated in open grade and C grade in the Dungog competition.
The open competition is for the more experienced players and talented young players.
This season the Dungog association has opted for something different that it is hoped will draw more players to the game. There will be two home and away rounds with one round of 42 overs per side and a round of 25 overs per side. This will still be very competitive in more of the Twenty20 style of cricket, which seems to have appeal to the current cricket generation and should take the pressure off, as it frees up some time.
Play starts on Saturday, October 6. Playing times are 1.30pm for T25 and 1pm for 42-over matches. A draw is expected this week. C grade will be 42 overs per side. Ten teams have nominated in the opens and six in C grade.
Juniors are also sought and time is running out for interested young players to nominate. Any parents wishing to assist are also welcome on Saturday mornings.
It is still hoped to run a Milo program for the seven to nine- year-olds wanting to learn the basic skills of cricket using modified equipment. This program is only for a couple of hours each Saturday morning during school term. Please contact Graeme or Sam.
The coaching that was to run in the holidays will not be held.
