Sunbury Cricket Club joins VTCA for season 2019/20

The Sunbury Cricket Club (SCC) is excited to announce that commencing season 2019/20 it will field its Senior 1st & 2nd Eleven teams in the Victorian Turf Cricket Association (VTCA).

SCC will now offer its members and the Sunbury community an alternative option to play high level VTCA cricket. SCC lower grade senior teams and junior divisions will remain within the GDCA. The SCC Executive Committee believe this is an opportunity in advancing and securing the long-term future of the club.

SCC’s long-term objective is to provide turf cricket locally and is working with Hume Council to achieve this however we have managed to secure the use of the new turf facility located outside Sunbury. The distances travelled are to be similar to travelling to GDCA venues. SCC junior and lower grade senior teams will be able to play more home games at Clarke Oval.

Details of arrangements will be communicated to SCC members by the SCC Executive Committee as they come to hand.

Brendan Doyle
SCC President
