Under 14 Challenge Series

Tim Hart writes, “The Under 14 Challenge Series 2017  gets underway this Sunday.  The competition will, again, feature three squads – the Eagles, the Foxes and the Sharks.  Initially, the players involved are Under 13 or Under 14, with a couple of exceptions – a player who is still Under 12 and was involved in the 2016 Challenge Series, or anyone who is required to fulfill, a ‘specialist’ role, for example a wicket-keeper.  It is, however, expected that other players will be added as the series progresses.  Preferred match dates have been set – and this is where we are looking for some help from clubs please. If a club is willing, and able, to host a match on any of the following dates could it please let me know:

Sunday, 14 May;

Sunday, 28 May;

Tuesday, 4 July;

Thursday, 20 July; and/or

Sunday, 6 August.

“The matches are 40 overs-a-side, with midweek matches starting at 10.45am and Sunday matches at 12 noon. There is a small budget for teas – but the WRDC is also happy to arrange teas if this makes things easier for any host club.  As with previous competitions, the plan is that the WDJCU website and Twitter feed will be kept updated with squads, venues, results, reports, etc.”
