GCB to hold special meeting

2012-06-12 17:22

Johannebsurg - Clubs affiliated to the Gauteng Cricket Board (GCB) will be given an opportunity to air their grievances at a special meeting at the Wanderers in Johannesburg on Wednesday.

"The meeting will be opened up for grievances and if clubs wish to discuss any other matters, they are most welcome to do so," the GCB's chief executive, Cassim Dockrat, said on Tuesday.

"We will discuss the future constitution and anything else they want to talk about.

"All the clubs have been invited, not just those who were signatories on the letter we received last week."

A number of clubs attempted to overthrow the board of Gauteng Cricket last week, insisting interim administrator Ray Mali and four directors step down with immediate effect.

Of the 66 clubs which make up the province, over 30 signed the letter.

However, after some signatories later withdrew their support, the rebellious clubs lacked the required majority.

Dockrat said he expected representatives from about 40 clubs to attend Wednesday's meeting.

"We asked the club chairmen to notify us in advance if they wanted any items put on the agenda," he said.

"Some responded and some wanted more background on various issues to be discussed."

The clubs were demanding control be given back to the province after the GCB was put under administration by Cricket SA in 2009.

The period of administration expires in three months, but many clubs were demanding immediate action and felt the GCB's new constitution should be decided by the club representatives, and not by the interim administration which took its directives from CSA.
