Adelaide Turf Cricket Association Policy

Please see below from the Adelaide Turf Cricket Association.  The Club Committee has discussed this and has unanimously voted to support the ATCA's stance.

The ATCA is extremely encouraged by the support and positive feedback it has received with its new policy of no alcohol in the opposition change rooms or as a collective group within the confines of that ground that does not involve the opponents. The Board extends its thanks and appreciation to all of the clubs in the association for embracing this direction in bringing back the social aspect of the game of cricket.

Going forward the ATCA has decided to transition this document (appeal) into an official  ATCA policy as follows:

A Message from Grum

Hi all,

As many of you are aware, I (along with several others) spend a lot of time running the Club.  It is full-time job on top of the one I already have.

Personalised Pavers

The Golden Grove Football Club invites all Brumbies players and supporters to buy a personalised paver to help fund the building of a new verandah looking out on the top oval at Harper's Field.  While it is true that we don't have a pitch in the top oval, part of the renovations include updating the kitchen in the clubrooms.  This wil also benefit the Brumbies.

Fees and Merchandise

For those of you who haven’t heard, the Club was robbed over the long weekend.  The thieves took (among other things) approximately $2,700 worth of cricket balls.  The Club has had to order more balls to replace those that were stolen.  It is now more important than ever that fees are paid so that we can pay for the replacement balls.

Club Merchandise Has Arrived!

For those of you who have placed an order for new Club has arrived. I will try to come out to training sessions in the next week or two to deliver it. If you have not paid, I will be able to accept cash, cheque or EFT upon delivery. 

T20 / Training Shirts

T20 Shirt


The Committee has finalised the design for the T20/training shirt and have had it approved by ATCA.  All Senior T20 players are required to have one.  All other players (senior and junior) and supporters are also encouraged to purchase one.

2014/15 Registration and Fees

The new season is approaching fast.  The Committee asks current and new players to register online to ensure that we have your details correct.

The Annual General Meeting has approved the fees for the 2014/15 season.  Please note that fees have gone up slightly to allow for the increased cost of running the Club.  This is the first such increase in several years; the Committee aims to keep the cost of playing cricket as low as possible.

Junior Teams & Training

We currently have 0 x U17, 1 x U15, 1 x U13, 2 x U11 & 0 x U10 places available.  If enough people register for us to fill another team in an age group, the Club will enter more than one team.

Teams and training times are listed below.  Please note that there are places available in some teams so if you see someone from last year is missing, please make contact with them.

I will confirm starting dates for training as soon as possible; training venues are used by other sports during the winter and I need to ensure that they will be available before announcing dates.
