Season 2016-2017

Roadies – hope the winter weather is being kind to you all. The committee have been working together on our plans for the years to come and we are keen to get feedback from all of you on where to from here.

We have been able to easily reach agreement about what it is that we love about the Roadies and what it is we would be proud to be a part of into the future. Our sense of friendship and family, our regard for the game and how it should be played and the contributions we all make as Roadies to our community, the causes that matter to us and to the care and growth of each other were common to us all. Forming a consensus on a vision for our club has been easy – we are a Charitable Community Cricket Club. We are proudest when we are giving to each other to help improve our lives – whether that be socially, professionally or in a sporting context and when we are supporting causes that are meaningful to us such as in the past with the Leukaemia Foundation, Flinders Medical Centre, Pink Stumps Day and Movember. These moments of community engagement have given all of us a great deal of pleasure and this committee is excited about continuing on with that tradition.

What I’d love to hear from you all is ideas on causes that you are passionate about and that you feel the Roadies should be supporting for the year ahead. I’m hopeful that we can find a number of causes we can get behind and support in true Roadies style. Feel free to contact me directly – details below – or to reach out to a committee member to pass along your feedback. I look forward to hearing from you.

We will also turn our attention to the season ahead – things such as Captains, grounds, playing fees, training coordination and social activities – and should you have a particular point of view or an interest please also feel free to reach out.

The Edwardstown Oval redevelopment project continues to progress with the Election being a pivotal moment in the application before the Federal Government. These are exciting times to be a Roadie and I will have further information to you as it all unfolds. Our training nets are in good order – our gardener Barry Voeges is keeping the grass in good order and council have placed new sight screens (tarpaulins) behind the bowler’s arm to enable better visibility and also allow a bit more privacy for our new neighbours. Anyone who is interested in using the nets for a training session please let me know and I’ll coordinate a key for access for you to use.

That’s all for now – take care until next time,

Darren Williams
