Bonteheuwel Cricket Club’s attempt at a successful 2015-16 season has been hampered by the departure of all-rounder Clinton Barros.

Barros has joined Avendale Cricket Club, who will participate in the Western Province Cricket Association’s first division A league, while Bonteheuwel Cricket Club have been relegated to first division C.

This is the Athlone-based club’s second promising acquisition this month, after the influential Kyle Prince was recruited as head coach.
