Senior Teams for the 2017/18 Season
The GGCC Committee recently discussed the nomination of Senior teams for the 2017/18 season and the results of the survey completed towards the end of the 2016/17 season. The Committee has resolved to do the following:
- Stay with the current nomination of teams – that is nominate 2 two-day and 2 one-day teams in the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association for the 2017/18 season.
- Nominate the two-day teams in the A3 and C1 competitions and the one-day teams wherever they are placed by ATCA. Based on the results of last season, this will most likely be LO3 and LO6.
The Committee believes that nominating the second two-day team in C1 will have the following benefits:
- The reduced number of overs (72 compared to 80 in the B3 competition) may encourage players who are sitting on the fence to commit to two-day cricket.
- The lower grade and the possibility of extra players committing to two-day cricket will make the Brumbies B Grade a more competitive team.
Soon the Committee will ask for registrations for the coming season (Seniors and Juniors) and captaincy applications so that we may begin the plan for the 2017/18 season.
