SACA REVIEW DECISION – PORT ADELAIDE TO CONTINUE AS A STAND-ALONE PREMIER GRADE CLUB
Friday, February 10, 2017
Fantastic news for all Port Adelaide Cricket Club players, coaches, officials, volunteers, sponsors & supporters.
On Monday February 6th the SACA Executive advised Port Adelaide (PACC), West Torrens (WTDCC) and the Grade Cricket Committee (GCC) that neither club WILL NOT BE DEMOTED and there WILL NOT BE A FORCED MERGER of the two clubs.
This is great news and is a fitting outcome for the great work, effort and time put in both on field by players and off field by administrators/supporters throughout the past 20 months. Congratulations and well done to all who contributed towards this outcome.
The SACA Executive have put a proposal on the Grade Cricket Committee agenda for the establishment of a State U19 team to be the 14th team in the Premier First Grade competition. SACA have asked the GCC/Clubs through the GCC to provide views and comments through a consultative process. They have also proposed some changes to PACC Junior Teams for the GCC and PACC feedback and consultation.
More details on both of these will be forthcoming soon and we, as a club, will need to consider the proposals further.
A special thank you to all our coaches and players who have continued to perform on the field over the past 20 months with so much uncertainty of our future. Let’s be proud of our accomplishments and continue moving forward to build our club.
PACC Chairman (on behalf of the PACC Management Committee)
