New series chance for Wanderers to get even

Wanderers get an early chance at redemption when the Nelson one-day club cricket competition begins tomorrow.

It has been only a week since Taylor's Contracting Wanderers suffered a 10-run loss to Car Company Stoke-Nayland in the Nelson Twenty20 club final at Saxton Oval. But the two teams meet again tomorrow, this time in a 50-overs format at Marsden Rec to herald the start of the one-day series.

The Nelson championship is again being held in conjunction with the Kelvin Scoble Trophy interprovincial competition which include's Marlborough's four club sides, meaning that some games will have both Nelson and Kelvin Scoble championship points at stake.

Wanderers and Stoke-Nayland are in different pools for the trophy competition, although tomorrow's other two games featuring Nelson club sides also count towards the combined competition.

Randles Cafe and Bar Wakatu and Athletic College Old Boys meet at Victory Square and are joined in their Kelvin Scoble Trophy pool by Stoke-Nayland and Marlborough teams Grove Tavern Wairau and Guthrie Bowron Renwick.

Sprig and Fern Tavern Motueka will host Harrington's Beer Cafe Waimea Toi Toi United at Memorial Park and will also compete against Wanderers and Marlborough's Criterion Wairau Valley and Biddy's Kate Celtic in the other pool.

The Kelvin Scoble Trophy final will be played on Sunday, March 17, while the Nelson championship decider is scheduled for Saxton Oval on Saturday, March 23.
