Wind and rain cause despair, again
Another weekend of high winds and incessant rain made many East Rand pitches unplayable this weekend, including Benoni Northerns’ pitches. All three covers, well secured with tyres and pegs, succumbed to the high winds leaving the pitches drenched.
Only the C field was playable on Sunday after baking in the sun.

We have received heavy earth-mover tyres from Auto & Truck Tyres (Wadeville) to make sure we’re covered next time.
