The impact of COVID-19 has undoubtedly had an effect on us all, and the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club is no different, with many changes planned for the upcoming 2020/21 season.
It has left a lot of things up in the air, however we can at least confirm today, the dates for when the season will commence.
- For our two-day grades, the season will begin on Saturday 17th October 2020 from 12:30pm.
- For our one-day grades, the season will begin on Saturday 31st October 2020 from 12:30pm.
The one-day season start date is subject to change however and may be brought forward one or two weeks given the already late start to the season. The AFL Grand Final is proposed to take place on the 25th October and it was imagined a bye for everyone would occur on that date instead, however the consensus appears to get the season going regardless and as such we may be playing on that Saturday.
We will be sure to let you know as soon as the date for the commencement of the one-day season is confirmed. Another possibility would be to start both grades on the same date (17th October), and have a bye the following week for the football. This of course is all subject to change and it remains to be seen what will happen.
