No play at Old Bar

OLD Bar's senior and junior cricketers are resigned to not playing at the Trad Complex again this season.

"The field's cracked badly with all the dry weather,'' first grade captain Tim Rees said.

Tomorrow's first grade clash against Wingham has been switched to Cedar Party Reserve and the side's other matches will be moved.

The club had the same problems at this time last year. However, officials were confident this had been rectified for this summer.

Fields at the complex also drain badly after wet weather.

"It's either too muddy or too cracked,'' Rees said.

The tenant clubs at the complex, the cricketers along with Old Bar Barbarians Football Club and the Old Bar Clams Rugby Club will meet soon in a bid to work out a solution.

Rees doesn't think that a break in the current dry spell would make much difference.

"Maybe if we got 400mm, but otherwise, no,'' he said.
