Out!! Hills cricket club gives decrepit boundary fence its marching orders

22 November 2016

The Scott Creek Ironbank Cricket Club in the Adelaide Hills can now boast a swish, brand-new piece of infrastructure: a shiny, gleaming boundary fence.

The old perimeter had served the club well for many years, but had truly had its day: in the words of one club official, “Exposed metal posts, bending and snapped bars… Basically it was about to fall apart!”

Not only was that not a good look – it was also dangerous, for players and spectators.

So, with a $10,000 Active Club Program grant from ORS helping meet about half the cost, the club set to work…

Now that the new fence is in place, the verdict is resounding: not only is the fence safer, it also makes the whole cricket oval look more presentable (and the club more professional).

Apart from the club’s three teams and 35 players, also benefitting from the change is the local footy club (and its eight teams and 150+ players!).
