Dear Glenbrook-Blaxland Cricket Club members,
JUNIOR AND SENIOR PRESENTATION
In consideration of the government's response to tackling COVID-19, we have decided to postpone all presentation events for both juniors and seniors. Cricket NSW has strongly advised all clubs to postpone their end-of-season functions, and we believe that moving these events to a more opportune time is the sensible thing to do. This decision is taken in solidarity of a community effort to help stem the spread of the virus and to protect those most at risk.
We will announce our plans for presentations once we have a clearer view of the long-term restrictions on social gatherings. We'd like to thank everyone involved in the 2019/20 season for the club. All players, coaches, captains, managers and supporters.
We'd particularly like to thank all the volunteers who help keep this club going year after year. We'd also like to make a special mention to all teams who made finals during the 2019/20 season:
In juniors, 4 sides made grand finals:
- Under 10s Handscomb
- Under 12s Div 1 Perry
- Under 14s Starc
- Under 15s Siddle
Congratulations to Under 14s Starc who finished as minor premiers, and won their grand final!
In seniors, 4 teams made semi-finals:
- 2nd Grade
- 3rd Grade
- 7th Grade
- 8th Grade
And both 3rd Grade and 8th Grade, not only finished as minor premiers, but also both won their grand finals!
Congratulations to everyone on a great season of cricket.
OUR CRICKET FAMILY
This club is about more than just cricket. We are a tight-knit community, and we are a support network for everyone involved. There are many members of our club who are experiencing tough times at the moment. The economic knock-on effects of the current measures imposed are rapidly affecting many industries in a dramatic way, and there are families within our club who are being hit hard. We are all here for each other.
If you are struggling, we encourage you to speak up. The combined resources of our cricket family are here to help as best as we can.
At this point, it is too early to tell if the restrictions on sports will affect the upcoming SMCA winter cricket season. For now, we will assume the season will go ahead, and we will continue to take registrations. If the competition is cancelled, we will reimburse all fees.
We thank you all for being understanding during this trying time. If you have any questions, or issues, please contact the committee at either, firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org .
