From the President:
Season 2019/2020

To all ETDCC Players, Life Members, Members and Supporters,

As per my previous message, the 2019/2020 Premier Cricket Season has come to a premature end due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Whilst we are extremely disappointed that we did not get the opportunity to have our 1st, 3rd and 4th Grades compete in the finals series, I am extremely proud of the way our club has performed on the field this year with highlights including:

  • 3 senior teams in the finals
  • 2nd Grade only narrowly missing the finals
  • 1st Grade winning the One Day Premiership and also playing in the T20 Grand Final for the second year in a row
  • Development of our junior players with a number playing senior cricket during the year

Whilst we are extremely disappointed and put forward a major case requesting the finals series to proceed in some format, the health and well-being of our players, volunteers and the wider Eastern Reds family, is our number one priority.

Due to the unprecedented completion of the season, the following will take place:

Premierships
Late yesterday, it was formally resolved by the SACA Premier Cricket Committee that premiership titles will be awarded to the minor premiers in all junior and senior grades. The premiership titles will be denoted that finals matches were not played. On behalf of East Torrens, we congratulate those recipients.

Junior and Senior Presentation Nights
Junior and Senior Presentation nights programmed for Friday 27th March and Friday 3rd April respectively have been cancelled, however we are considering options on how we will be able to recognise our trophy winners and thank our volunteers, sponsors etc. Further information will be provided when available.

Junior Trials
Junior trials for next season will also be postponed until it is safe to hold these and we will advise the new dates ASAP.

 

I would like to personally thank Stephen Stubbings, the coaching staff, players, volunteers and committee members who have given their absolute all in improving our on-field performances this year.

Bring on 2020/21!
Go Reds

Craig Bradbrook
President

Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update 17-03-2020

To all ETDCC players, club members and supporters,

As most of you would be aware, due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), Cricket Australia has advised SACA to cancel Premier Cricket for the remainder of the season, effective immediately.

With 3 of our 4 senior teams due to participate in the final series, we are extremely disappointed that the season has come to an early end, however the health and well-being of our players, volunteers and the wider Eastern Reds family, is our number one priority.

Our committee are currently assessing the ever-changing information being received and hope to provide a further update within the next 24 hours in relation to the outcome of the season, junior and senior presentation nights, junior trials and how we move forward in this unprecedented situation.

Thanks and stay tuned for further updates.

Craig Bradbrook
President
