Wet weather halts KFC series

ANOTHER serve of foul weather has interrupted the KFC Twenty20 Cup series.

One month into the season and just two matches have been played with a further two washed out.

Park Beach Bowling Club Colts No. 1 and Grafton’s Easts Cricket Club will now share the points from this week’s latest misadventure.

Two matches are scheduled for next week as the quarter-finals begin.

Sawtell and Diggers Ex-Services play Monday with PBBC Colts No. 2 and Nana Glen drawn in Wednesday’s fixture.

Both matches will be played at Coffs Coast Sports and Leisure Park from 5.30pm.

Meanwhile, Dorrigo cricket identity Trevor Neaves has confirmed speculation that city-based clubs are keeping a close eye on the club’s talented opener Adam Turner.

“Since he returned from playing the off-season in England his form has been excellent,” he said.

“He scored 16 in his first innings back and since then it’s been 40s and 50s.

“All three innings in the Country championships last weekend in Tamworth were full of quality and there’s no risk – he’s a player with a great deal of promise.”

Turner has been selected in the representative team for the SCG Country Cup match against Tweed this Sunday but the grey skies have association president Ken Robinson glued to the weather radar.

“The match is set down for Kingscliff and the covers went on the wicket on Wednesday to protect it from the rain,” he advised.

“However, with Tweed the top seed it means they’ll progress to the next round instead of us, if the match is washed out.”

This week’s local round is also in jeopardy with a decision expected around lunch time today.

Cancellation will mean one-day matches on December 11.
