No Auckland Cricket competition has organised for this age group pre-Christmas. However together with our four local catchment Clubs-Auckland University, Grafton, Cornwall & HPCC we are currently arranging an ACA T20 approved competition. Details including playing dates are still to be finalised and will depend on player numbers from each Club. It is envisaged that there would be two rounds and a final – so that would be seven matches prior to Christmas. Games would be played midweek on Thursdays from 5.00 pm to 7.00 pm.
We ask those players who would be interested in this competition to register so we can get an idea of playing numbers before we confirm. Please contact Kate Wilson on 021 750530, or at email@example.com for further details.
