The damage do most grounds is done from Monday to Friday. Yes Monday to Friday when all grounds are used for training. It would make sense that if we have no further rain , games could proceed over the weekend and allow them to be prepared for next weeks games.
Shame on the councils for the disgraceful wet weather policy!
easy fix, let cricket play in winter and we go summer. seriously i just walked and did my own training on ted burge. absolutely nothing wrong. i would be very supried if the current condition would cause harm to any player. each player should get some compensation. i pay to play every weekend and its my only excuse to have a cold one after the game.
Something clearly wrong with the councils when despite the rain nearly all of the Gladesville-Hornsby Districts games will go ahead this weekend. Surely clubs should have more say in whether grounds should be open or not as these clubs are the ones paying the council fees for using the fields in the first place!
It's a joke, they are only interested in ripping as much money from clubs as possible. I say again - OUTDOOR WINTER SPORT. Would be the end of the world if a council worker actually had to do some maintenance on these grounds they charge so much for the privilege of not playing on.
Surely every field could not be deemed unplayable by the councils,Bankstown games going ahead,Canterbury games going ahead,Gladesville Hornsby games going ahead,Kurringai games going ahead, yes there are ground and time changes to most of these games BUT there are games tomorrow in these associations and most or nearly all are going ahead, I just can't believe that the GDSFA has called ALL games off Friday afternoon without further inspections tomorrow.
it's the councils who have forced Granville's hands unfortunately, if they close the parks what can Granville do. If they went ahead who would pay the fines. Certainly my biggest worry now is all the ferals who won't let a sign worry them and the fact Auburn only have 2 rangers available on a weekend to police the closures

We walked our grounds about an hour ago and North Rocks is too boggy around the pitch, Murray farm still has surface water, HazelRyan is the surprise packet, it is not to bad. As a result we have advised GDSFA that Hazel will be available to host Ladies games on Sunday and the GM has duly scheduled 5 games.
Now Refsdad we need someone to man the canteen. You up for it?
Refsdad the way banks town operates is that the council allows the association to operate the parks and calls the shots. What auburn council does is actually not helping everyone looks forward to a weekend of football especially the young ones. The frustration is that the parks are like cow paddocks anyway it's not like they maintain them in anyway that is going to make the pitches worthy of playing it is an absolute joke.
Its similar out nepean way. The council allows the association and clubs to have control of the grounds and call the shots. And i agree, its not as it the granville councils do any maintenance work to the fields during the season. Granville definitely one step behind all other associations. Dissapointing!
