With the cricket season fast approaching the unusually wet season looks promising to keep some good cover on the squares however a few early season competitions have had to be let through to the keeper.
On Wednesday Central North development manager Kathy Barber announced that Thursday’s Tamworth Milo T20 Blast Schools Cup has had to be postponed until October 13.
The event was set to see over 200 primary school age sloggers hit the Riverside Fields for a full day of short form action but is now amongst seven events throughout the region to be cancelled or postponed over the past fortnight.
“Many schools cricket knockout games have had to be postponed to next term already as well,” Barber said.
This weekend Central North is hosting the NSW Country Girls 15’s & 17’s Championships in Tamworth with a decision to play on synthetic wickets already taken by the organisers due to pitches being too wet to prepare through the week.
