The potential expansion of the local cricketcompetition to include a B grade competition wasa major talking point and it was identified thatnew players will be required should this goahead.

A B grade team would give the opportunity tojunior players, fringe A grade players and newplayers to play regular games.

Paul Polujnikoff was appointed as the newcaptain following the decision by long-servingcaptain Paul Trotta to stand down after sixseasons.

Polujnikoff will be well supported by vicecaptain Brett Thomas and deputy vice captainAdrian Boulton.
