With a brand new committee and a five-year plan, the Coolum Cricket Club is padded up and ready for the new season.

The first sign-on day will be held next Sunday, August 16 at the Coolum Sporting Complex from 10am until 2pm.

President Tim West said the club hoped to attract more junior and senior cricketers this season.

“We’re the only club from the Maroochy Bridge to Tewantin, so anyone in that area is who we are looking to attract,” Mr West said.

The club hopes to field junior teams from under-10 to under-17 and at least three senior teams.

Mr West said the club’s five-year capital works plan included applying for government grants, construction of a turf pitch (subject to council approval), lighting for the practice nets and more interaction between junior and senior players.

“We’re a brand new committee and we’re looking at taking this club forward,” he said.
