Unfortunately, the weather and other factors led to no cricket for the Gippsland veterans last week.

The first cancellation was the Over 70 game against the Yarra Valley Over 70s on Tuesday, October 17.

The game was to be played at Morwell, but the rain on Monday had made the available grounds unplayable.

The Over 60 game that was to be played last Sunday at Pakenham against the Pakenham and District Over 60 team was called off as the home team could not field a side.

Hopefully, the weather and other factors will combine favourably for the coming games.

There is a trial match for the Over 70s at Endeavour Hills today (Tuesday, October 24), with teams for the National Championships in the Bunbury area, to be held November 22 to 29, to be selected.

Several of the Goannas will be going to Bunbury.

The next scheduled game for the Goannas Over 50 team is an away game this Sunday (October 29) against the South East Vets at Caulfield.

The Over 70 team is scheduled to play the West Gippsland Wombats, also on Sunday at Iona, while the next Over 60s game is scheduled for November 5 at Endeavour Hills.

There will be an Over 60s National Championships played in Perth soon.
