The 2020/21 cricket season is about to begin and Clunes Junior Cricket Club is on the lookout for all past and future players to join a supportive team and have great fun in the outdoors.

‘Clunes Cricket Club is celebrating its centenary year and we are seeking girls and boys of all abilities to come and play cricket and carry on the tradition of our small yet wonderful club,’ club president Andrew Criss said.

‘We are seeking players in the age groups of under 16s, under 14s and under twelves.’

For the first time, Lismore District Junior Cricket Association is introducing an under tens format, designed to bridge the gap between the introductory T20 Blast program and the start of genuine match play in under twelves.

‘This will be a great pathway towards learning the finer points of the game and will be held on a Wednesday afternoon in Lismore,’ he said.

This year’s season launches on Saturday October 17, with the first round commencing a week later.

Clunes Juniors will now train at Hepburn Park in Goonellabah on a Tuesday afternoon.

To register, go to and select Clunes as your Club. Because of Covid 19 restrictions the club has pushed back its centenary celebrations to 2021.

For all enquiries please contact Andrew on 0405 183 603.
