Grand final cricket postponed due to rain

MORNING rain has led to the postponment of the A-grade grand final in Warwick cricket.

Warwick Hotel Colts went into the grand final with the minor premiership and major semi-final win under their belts and could have claimed the premiership.

The games were originally scheduled Saturday with today the reserve day.

Colts captain Shaun O'Leary stated late last week he didn't want to win through a washout and it was the same yesterday.

The A-grade grand final between Colts and Wheatvale will now be played next Sunday but Warwick Cricket Association president Michael Bourke said there would definitely be no more postponement if Sunday was wet.

Regardless of the weather, the presentations in Warwick cricket will be at 5pm next Sunday.

Bourke is in touch with the reserve grade teams and a decision is yet to be made about a postponement. If the game is not replayed, the WCA rules provide for Sovereign Animals to win the premiership trophy from runners up Inglewood.

WARWICK has the chance to win the Slade Shield for a second successive season when the final is played on Saturday at Slade Park.

As Mitchell Shield winners, Warwick has earnt the right to play Knox Shield winners St George.

The 50-over a side game will start at 10am.
