Last weekend resignations were received and accepted from Trevor Rout, Chairperson Saturday Pennant and Robert Storey, Selector Saturday Pennant. The Committee has moved quickly to fill these important positions and last night appointed John Kaloger as Chairperson Saturday Pennant and Brendan McKay as a Selector Saturday Pennant. As Chairperson, John will have the casting vote on all selection discussions. Brendan will be able to vote on all seven Sides during selection.  As part of Brendan’s role, he is to ensure representation for the players from fourth & fifth sides and all new bowlers.

Please support our new selectors who, as we all know, have taken on a difficult but rewarding task.
