Seymour awarded final after finishing top of the table.CHALPAT SONTI February 19, 2014 4:29am
A ball might not have been bowled in the final, but Seymour District Cricket Association are the winners of the under-15 McPherson Shield.
The side had been due to play Shepparton in the decider at Kings Park on February 9, but the game was called off due to the heat.
It was then rescheduled for Chittick Park on Sunday until it was realised there was no official reserve day for the game. That meant the SDCA side took out the title because it had finished top of the table.
The victory was the second in the competition for many of the players, who created history a couple of years ago by being the first SDCA side to win a McPherson Shield in its present format when taking out the under-13 title, beating Campaspe at Tallarook.
Under-15 coach Gerard O’Sullivan said the squad was a great bunch of kids and a talented group of cricketers.
‘‘The Association has really got something to look forward to with this group coming through,’’ he said.The winning squad
