Corowa Cricket Club to start season

By Corowa Free Press

After successfully sending all grades into the CAW District finals last season, the Corowa Cricket Club will aim to lure some premiership trophy’s back home in season 2019/20.

Senior cricket will begin this Saturday, October 12 with the A Grade taking on Eskdale at the Eskdale Football Ground. 

The A Grade team, which will again be led by coach Dan Athanitis, will be looking to improve on last year’s finals disappointment with some handy recruits including Jordan Hanstead (batter/keeper from Bruck Rovers), Jeremy Carr (batter/keeper from City Colts), and batsman Fraser Elliott.
