Cricket update
Not the start to the season that the Premier's and the Reserves were expecting. After Saturday's loss to University the Premiers are in 10th spot with two wins from five games, the team will be looking to strongly bounce back against Hutt Districts at Hutt Rec on Saturday.

The Premier Reserves after a good first up win against Naenae have stumbled in their last four games, like the Premiers the team is looking to bounce back against Hutt Districts at Fraser Park on Saturday.

The clubs only undefeated team the "Mighty Legends" under the stewardship of one Paul McNelis is looking to make it four from four when they take on Northern Park at Fraser 3 on Saturday.

Fraser One
You might be wondering why the Premiers have only had one home game so far this season. This is due to the issues we had with our number one cricket wicket last season, the council agreed to renovate our wicket prior to the start of the season. For reasons unknown this work started very late and as we speak the wicket is still at least three weeks away from being ready. 

This situation is most unsatisfactory; however the club is working very hard with Cricket Wellington and the Council to resolve the issues. 

At this stage the next Premier home game was set down for the 29th of November against North City, this game will be transferred to Linden Park. At earliest the Reserves will trial the upgraded block on the 6th of December. 

The real disappointment here is that the Premier team is unlikely to play at home before xmas. We will keep you posted.
