South Western Districts Cricket have welcomed New Dawn Park Cricket Club and Hartenbos Cricket Club as affiliate members ahead of the 2015-16 season.
Based in George, New Dawn Park Cricket Club’s application was initially rejected, last year, when the preference was to “strengthen existing structures with and cricket in the specific community”, namely Pacaltsdorp United Cricket Club.
Oudtshoorn’s Harlequins Forces Cricket Club, Union Stars Cricket Club, Western Hope Cricket Club and Bongolethu Cricket Club, Plettenberg Bay’s Pioneers Cricket Club, Beaufort West’s Selbourne Cricket Club and Knysna’s Pirates United Cricket Club remain among SWD Cricket’s affiliate clubs.
Enrique Pietersen from Union Stars Cricket Club, meanwhile, was elected as a non-independent director. He replaced Enrico Bell.
