CUDAL CRICKET’S HIT FOR SIX
Updated: Jun 23, 2022
The Cudal Cricket Club can celebrate its 150th year in style with a NSW Government investment set to cover the cost to upgrade their pitch at Dean Park.
NSW Upper House MP Sam Farraway met with local junior players and parents last week to announce the $9,500 investment.
Mr Farraway said that the $9,500 contribution from the Government would see the current cricket pitch completely transformed, covering the costs of minor earthworks and synthetic grass overlay.
“The Dean Park pitch is currently in a state of disrepair. This investment will see the park revamped into a first class pitch worthy for all local teams – especially Cudal as the 2021-22 Premiership and Minor Premiership winners!
“Local sporting Clubs are critical to bringing together our small towns across the State. With this investment, Cudal Cricket will be the focal point of social interactions and become a larger network for locals.”
Cudal Cricket Club Secretary Jock Hough said that the funding came at the right time and will ensure Cudal Cricket remains on top of their game.
“We know that programs and clubs make a huge difference to everyday life in the bush. I am delighted to see the Government making these kinds of investments in local towns as they directly equal a few more dollars in local pockets.
“We look forward to defending our title in the upcoming season on our brand new pitch!”
