Final rescheduled

The Dick Hunt cricket holiday competition final fell victim to the weekend’s dismal weather and now looks likely to be rescheduled for Saturday.

The fixture was set to be played at King George Park before a change of venue to Milner Park, but the greasy surface was deemed unsafe.

Saturday’s clash between Eastern and Union may now serve as the Dick Hunt holiday competition final and the seventh round of the Borton Cup, should both sides agree.

Union breezed through the round-robin stage of the competition unbeaten while Eastern rallied to take three wins from their last three encounters to book a place in the final.

Despite Union’s impressive form along with a home advantage at King George Park, Eastern skipper James Dempster said he had confidence in his bowlers.

“As long as we can play to our potential, if we can bat the 50 overs I’ve got confidence in our young bowling line-up,” he said.
