Cricket cancelled in wake of floods

GYMPIE A Grade and reserve grade cricket fixtures have been called off this weekend.

Last weekend's flooding and the Gympie Gold Off-road XI playing at home are reasons for the cancellation.

Because the Gold are playing at Albert Park, no Gympie games can be played and the turf wickets at One Mile haven't recovered from being covered in flood water last weekend.

Gympie Cricket president Troy Rowlands said C Grade cricket would go ahead tomorrow.

C Grade will be played at One Mile and at Gympie High School as scheduled in the draw.

Rowlands said the Gabba grass wicket would be fine for C Grade.

The A and reserve grade games will revert to 40-over one-day matches next weekend.

Harlequins will play Valleys and Colts will take on Wests in A Grade.

The games will be just a bit of batting practice for the teams with the grand final places already decided.

West and Harlequins will play in the grand final starting in two weekends time.

Junior cricket is on at One Mile tomorrow and the Gold will play Caboolture at Albert Park for a chance to make the finals.
