MGCC to play on Turf in 2001

By The Committee

During July the Monash Gryphons Cricket Club circulated a survey regarding the possibility of playing on turf next season. Our Secretary (Kelly Morris) has received all of our members preferences and they were presented to the committee on Monday 6th August.

The club committee took into account the results of the survey which clearly indicate strong support for the club entering teams in a turf based competition. We have now affiliated with the Mercantile Cricket Association (MCA) which is based at Fawkner Park on turf wickets. Our three sides for the coming season will be as follows:

1st XI in Mercantile Cricket Association A grade on turf
2nd XI in Mercantile Cricket Association B grade on turf
3rd XI in City of Moorabbin Cricket Association F grade on synthetic grass

The committee is looking forward to a fantastic season.
