Premier Cricket: wet weather washes out round one

GOSNELLS’ round one Premier Cricket clash with Midland-Guildford at Sutherlands Park was abandoned due to poor weather.

Heavy showers across the Perth metropolitan area on Saturday made playing conditions increasingly difficult.

All matches were due to start at 10.30am, but the WA District Cricket Council (WADCC) Management Committee believed it was in the best interests of players to cancel all senior grades, under 5.7.4 of the WADCC General Rules.

The decision was based on the feedback on facilities given by majority of clubs, with the impeding weather also taken into consideration.

All fixtures will be deemed a draw, leaving the competition even heading into round two next weekend.

Weather will be a continuing issue in the opening rounds, with every player’s safety a priority for the WADCC.

The South Metropolitan Cricket Association was also impacted with rain, with the Armadale third grade managing to play. Armadale were defeated by Jandakot Park at South Coogee reserve. Thornlie will host Armadale next week at Walter Padbury Park.
