South Road Cricket Club

And like that, the season is upon us!

Dear Roadies,

I hope this correspondence finds you safe and well in these crazy times. Who would of thought in their lifetime they would see the global events that have taken place in their lifetime have a better crystal ball than I do!

Season Launch

After a few false starts, we will finally conduct the much awaited season launch this Friday the 8th of October at Edwardstown Memorial Services Club in the combined upstairs function rooms. As a committee we are committed to have dates finalised and published by the start of round two for all events. we recognise the need to improve timely communication.

Due to the ever changing council policies, we will be unable to offer meals and council will be staffing the bar, meaning we will not receive any revenue. I will speak to the group with an update on where we are at with council, needless to say we are the forgotten party in the new profit share scheme which we have opted out of.

Back to the night, it will kick off at 7.00 pm with a similar format to last season, however with a few “twists”. The night is designed to be a fast-paced semi-formal night with lots of fun and frivolity!


Again the launch will be sponsored by ATOM Supply and we already have engaged MIDAS as a major signage sponsor along with SA Buzz who will again be our on field shirt sponsor. Phil Hoffman Travel have also kindly sponsored us again this year (through Will Bragg), with a iPad to assist with scoring.

If anyone would like to become a sponsor, the packages are available on our website or please feel to speak with any committee member.

Vale William Bragg

It has deeply saddened the club, the unexpected and too early passing of our newest committee member Will Bragg. Will had always been an enthusiastic and passionate Roadie with this season embarking on assisting our club off the field. I personal enjoyed Will’s enthusiasm and intelligent dry-witted humour. I had the pleasure of captaining Will at times as well as watching him mature as an intelligent and respected committee member. Will’s coffin was made in the colours of SRCC, showing his commitment to our club to the end. I think it is safe to say Will was liked by all and will be greatly missed around the club. His banter, unlike some others, was always direct, amusing and intelligent. A minutes silence will take place at the season launch as well as announcing how we will be remembering and celebrating Will’s contribution to us all in round one.

Yours in sport,
Lionel Markwort.
