Premier Cricket: rain puts dampener on washed out Midland-Guildford match

Premier Cricket: rain puts dampener on washed out Midland-Guildford match

MIDLAND-Guildford’s round one Premier Cricket clash with Gosnells at Sutherlands Park on Saturday 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, however the 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 the 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.
