Association News

Club Champions

Our Seniors have won the Association Club Championship for the first time since 2008/09. This is a great achievement as the qualification criteria are designed to even the playing field and tends to favour smaller Clubs.

Having missed out last year by 1/1000th of a point, the doctrine of inevitability has shone on those who believe in fate and destiny – I think they call it Karma!

Well done.

Paid Umpiring opportunity for Semis / Finals

The Umpires Association has asked us to nominate players not qualifying for the Finals for Umpiring duty on the following dates:

  • Senior Semi Finals: Saturday 11th and 18th March
  • Senior Finals: Saturday 25th and Sunday 26th March
  • Junior Finals: Sunday 12th March

Minimum qualification to be appointed is a current Captains Ticket. Obviously preference will be given to those holding current Umpires Certification.

All persons appointed to these fixtures will be paid the current umpire rate of $20 – $22 / scheduled hour of play, dependent upon whether one or two umpires are in attendance.
