Marriaqua softball cricket competitions suspended
The Champions of Champions and the Village Ram/ Memorial Funeral Home T/20 softball cricket competitions have been suspended with immediate effect, organisers say.
Urgent repair work to the Cane End Playing Field by the National Lotteries Authority is the cause of the suspension.
However, both competitions will resume as soon as the repairs are complete, organisers assured.
