GEORGE CRICKET NEWS - An announcement that SWD Cricket is going to move its head office to George was a bit premature, according to the George Municipality.
In a press release issued by the municipality, director of Community Services Walter Hendricks said recent media reports pertaining to the relocation of SWD Cricket's head office to George were met with surprise by the municipality.
"The Directorate Community Services does not normally provide comments on matters that still need to serve before Council, but we deem it necessary to provide factual context due to the obvious public interest in this matter," stated Hendrikcs.
He said the directorate was approached by SWD Cricket with an application stating its intention to relocate its head quarters to George. "Council subsequently resolved that SWD Cricket be engaged to explore the possibility of reaching a mutually beneficial agreement to serve before Council for decision.
Clarification was sought, and the municipality is now awaiting a decision from CSA, as per SWD Cricket's correspondence."
Hendricks also said that, in the absence of the outstanding information, "no report could be presented to Council and therefore no final decision has been made."
