Post Xmas Permit Rule changes

All Clubs,

The BHRDCA CoM trusts you all enjoyed a great Xmas break and importantly that you and your players and their families have all managed to stay safe and well in these trying times.

Just a reminder that as of this Saturday (9/1) the Permit conditions alter in the lead in to the final phase of the season. Please ensure that you understand the Rules associated with selection when a player is being demoted, should the circumstances require a Permit. (Refer Attachment 7 – Player Permits, in the Senior Competition Rules.)  

If anyone has a query about this aspect of the season please contact either MVZ or Steve F. to follow up.

Good luck to all Clubs and players as we resume the 2020/21 Season this coming Saturday.


CONGRATULATIONS MATTY – Vermont South Cricket Club

The club would like to congratulate Matt Williams on receiving a 2020 Deakin Community Award. A Life Member of the VSCC, Matty has been a hardworking volunteer for over 20 years as a player, committee member and coach. Matt served 8 years on the committee, including two years as President, has been heavily involved in coaching at a junior and senior level and has also been a long term sponsor of the club.
Appointed as senior coach in the 2016/17 season, Matty has spent countless hours working with and developing our younger players. These efforts led to our First XI winning the BHRDCA Wilson Shield in 2018/19 and being runners up in 2019/20.

The awards are supported by Federal MP for Deakin

Michael Sukkar and celebrate & honour the contribution of our community’s unsung heroes, who serve others without expectation of reward.
