THE Mid North Coast over 35 inter-district cricket final between Gloucester and Manning will now be played on Sunday February 18 at Chatham Park.
The match was originally scheduled for this Sunday.
However, MNC chairman Gordon Cross said a mix-up in communication means the wicket won’t be prepared for Sunday.
United all-rounder Danial Stone will lead Manning into the match against the three-time defending champions.
Manning’s record in over 35 cricket since the competition was established has been underwhelming. Last season Manning failed to win a match, although all games were closely contested.
However, Manning will go into the February 18 match with an unbeaten record this summer. This included a win over Gloucester at Gloucester. Stone said this season’s side boasts a powerful batting lineup and this has been instrumental in their run to the final.
He added that Manning ‘got a bit lucky’ in the match against Gloucester and he expects a tight game on February 18. The match will start at 10am.
