HEATING UP: When your favourite summer sport is back

WARWICK’S summer of sport is set to be a blazer, with plenty of clubs undeterred by the year’s shaky start are ready to kick off their new seasons.

Undertaking a change of the guard after last week’s annual general meeting, the popular Warwick Cricket Association will take the field on September 19.

Incoming club president Andrew Bryson said every player was itching to get under way.

“We’ve got Allora, Colts, Maryvale, Redbacks, Sovereign, Victoria Hill and Wheatvale all ready to go, and even with the few unknowns we’re hoping we can get a full season in,” Bryson said.

“We’re hoping the impact of Covid-19 on winter sports, and so many people missing out on them, will have a lot of people keen to hook into cricket.

“The clubs are always looking for new players too, especially at the start of the season.”
