EAST COAST BAYS - PREMIER SCORER
East Coast Bays Cricket Club, based on Auckland’s North Shore, are seeking a scorer for their Premier Men’s Team for the 2020/2021 season.

The season will run from mid-October 2020 to end March 2021, with matches every Saturday excluding a short break over the Christmas/New Year period. A few matches are also played on Sundays and on Wednesday evenings.
Should you be interested, but are unable to commit to all matches, we urge you to still apply, as it is our intention to have back up scorers to assist as required.
