The rain gave the Bogan Shire Council no option but to closeLarkin Ovalto not only protect the playing surface, butthe players’ safety.

The match between the CYMS and the Tigers will now be rescheduled, most likely to theJuly 16 weekend.

Neither Group 11 secretary Ross McDermott or CYMS president Kevin Walkom were critical of the decision but both are now left to work alongside the Tigers to come up with a new date for the match.

“I know they were umming and ahing about it out there but the Nyngan boys rang me at around six-thirty this morning,” McDermott said on Sunday.

“Council looked at it and they have the final call and they had no option but to close the ground.

“We’ve basically said to Nyngan and CYMS they can organise an alternate date.”

The July 16 weekend isa general bye for all clubs, allowing them to run social and/or fundraising events.

Walkom confirmed CYMS have a club function set down for the 16th.

In years gone by, cancelled matcheswere often replayed during the week, butalmost everyone involved with both clubs havework commitments.

CYMS remain two points clear at the top of the ladder.

McDermott confirmed the matchmust go ahead and if the clubs can’t come to an agreement then he and Group 11 president Derrick Hoe wouldintervene.
