Match forfeited by Georges River

MASTERS ROUND 9 v LINDFIELD LEGENDS AT ACRON OVAL, ST IVES ON SUNDAY 5 FEBRUARY 2017
The game – and indeed all games in the round – was called off- on the direction of the Committee of the Association on the grounds that temperatures in Sydney would exceed 400.
The round will not be rescheduled at a later date.
The problem is that the ABC weather forecast for Sydney (stipulated by the Competition Rules to be used) – only predicted 380 and the local predictions in some areas near the coast where some games were to be played were only c. 350 which led a number of teams to complain.

C&S ROUND 11 v OLD CRANBROOKIANS AT CAMPERDOWN OVAL, CAMPERDOWN, ON SATURDAY 11 FEBRUARY, 2017.
Cancelled by heat.

SOCIAL GAME v THE QUEENSLAND CRICKETERS’ CLUB AT CAMPERDOWN OVAL, CAMPERDOWN ON MONDAY 13 FEBRUARY, 2017. FOR THE JACK CHEGWYN CUP
Editor’s note: The late Jack Chegwyn was a former First Grade player with Randwick in Sydney for a period of 30 years as a free scoring batsman. He was one of only ten players to score over 10,000 runs in Sydney First Grade cricket (10,455 at 30.75 from the years 1926-1956) His first Class career was brief but productive with a highest score of 103 against South Australia in the 1940-41 season. He played 5 matches for NSW scoring 375 runs with a highest score of 103 and an average of 36.75 (including one century and two fifties).

The reason he is famous in our context was the regular country tours he organized in the 1940s and 50s out of the Cricketers’ Club to play country teams with a mixture of NSW State/Grade and occasionally Test players.

The game had been arranged for this day at the request of the QCC so that their players could go to the SCG over the weekend to watch the Shield game between NSW and Queensland. However a week out the QCC cancelled as they could only raise five players to come to Sydney.

C.C.N.S.W. thus retain the Chegwyn Cup for the third successive season even though the Cup is now on permanent display at the Gabba
