As the start of the Rep season has begun for Buller Cricket, this week we see the U17’s team head to Christchurch to compete in the U17’s Canterbury Regional Tournament. Playing two Twenty20 matches Monday and then four 50 over matches on the following four days (although the weather does look in some doubt). The team is a little light on locals available this season, again we have been supported by those from over the hill to be able to compete. We wish them all the best.
This weekend – 15th & 16th Dec, see’s the Buller Lions play their 2nd Hawke Cup match here in Westport (at the BHS Ground) against Nelson. With something to prove, it is hoped that a full strength team will make it on the pitch, the sun will shine, and we get to view a couple of good days of cricket.
Next week (17th-21st Dec) we have the U15’s Canterbury Regional Tournament being held in Westport with 6 teams competing, we hope the locals will come out and support these young men. Updates will be given during the week as we get closer to game day’s.
