Cricketers and sports fans across the Coast have had a disappointing end to the season when several grand finals had to be cancelled due to wet weather over the weekend of March 18-19.
Closed pitches and fields included Sohier Park 1 and 2, EDSACC North, Halekulani Oval, Kanwal Oval and Mascord Oval.
Council notified the Central Coast Cricket Association of the closures prior to game days, but persistent heavy rains left the Association with no choice but to declare the finals cancelled as ground conditions remain unusable.
The issue is further complicated by the approaching winter sport season that will see fields and other play spaces and facilities handed over to other sporting codes and associations for the beginning of their season.
As such, the Association has ruled that teams that were leading at each of these grounds in relevant grand finals are now the 2016/17 Premiers in their respective grades.
Games effected were: 1st Grade Narara vs Kincumber; 3rd Grade Narara vs Northern Power; 4th Grade Northern Power vs Terrigal; 7th Grade Wyong vs Warnervale; 8th Grade Southern Spirit vs Kincumber Green; 10th Grade Lisarow vs The Entrance; U16C Narara vs Terrigal Maroon; U14A Kincumber vs Narara; U14C Kincumber Red vs Lisarow White; and U12A Northern Power vs Terrigal.
