Cricket club needs more support

ALTHOUGH only seven people showed up to the Warwick Cricket Association's annual general meeting last week, the committee is sure the show will go on in time for the summer season.

And the association is holding another meeting this Wednesday at the Condamine Sport Club.

Warwick Cricket Association president Michael Bourke said they need 11 people to attend for the competition to go ahead.

"We're pretty confident they will show this time," he said.

"Sometimes people just need a wake up call."

The club's representative team manager, Colin O'Brien, said time was an issue with most people.

"There is a lack of interest to be involved with administration as well," he said.

"People are busy with children and work."

O'Brien said the association had done a lot more networking with people in the community for the Wednesday meeting and were hoping to see better results.

"Sometimes people don't read the (news) papers and information on the website, so we've had to physically communicate with people," he said.

Bourke said they needed the executive positions to be filled, otherwise there would not a cricket season.

The junior cricket season starts on October 8, while the seniors were set to start on October 9.
