The Western Province Cricket Association have formally responded to Hanover Park Cricket Club’s allegations of “lack of transparency” and general unfair treatment.

The WPCA’s response comes after a report, which included several claims of mismanagement, was prematurely published by The South African. The report was without comment from WPCA and effectively one-sided.

Chairperson Ashraf Allie stated Hanover Park Cricket Club are not among the so-called “elite clubs” – and are “disadvantaged continually“. Members are “disillusioned,” added Allie.

The WPCA’s response was availed to all affiliated clubs – and belatedly published by The South African on Thursday. It listed several measures of support for Hanover Park Cricket Club, including:

  • Financial support to the value of R 34,300 given to the club in 2020, specifically for the
    upgrade of their nets.
  • Support was given for their overseas tour to the United Kingdom in 2019.
  • “WPCA have consistently paid HPCC their grant every season, besides the additional
    support given to the club”
