Cricket News – Grand Finals Cancelled and Other News

The Cricket Division would like to provide an update given the current situation.

This morning the VTCA made the ruling that they would be calling off the conclusion to all Grand Final matches immediately. This is a view our club supported and recommended.

Whilst this is not an ideal situation we felt we had a social responsibility to uphold and protect our players, officials and supporters from any possibility contamination or pass on that this virus may present.

At this point in time the VTCA have not come to a decision as to the awarding of non 1st innings resulted matches which of course our teams were part of. This decision will be made in the next couple of days.

It’s a really sad way to finish what has been an exceptional year for our club. However, the health and safety of our community is our number one priority.

We have also decided to postpone the Junior and Senior Cricket Presentation nights. More details to come once we can reschedule these events.

The Cricket Division will not be opening the club for any further events for gatherings.

If you have any queries please contact Sarah Gray (0430 185 840) or Paul West (0425 705 859) direct, and we would be happy to discuss.

Important update on COVID-19 and our club.

Dear Members, Families and Supporters

With the spread of COVID-19 increasing across Victoria, the Aberfeldie Sports Club has made the decision to IMMEDIATELY SUSPEND all training, practice matches and events until further
notice.

The safety and welfare of our players, volunteers, officials and their families are our number one priority.

We will provide further updates as we receive more advice from the league and government officials.

The cricket section received advice from the VTCA who have informed us that their Grand Finals will proceed this weekend. Therefore, cricketers competing in the Grand Finals will be allowed to train and play unless advised otherwise.
