Dear Members,

For the 2019-2020 cricket season, Rovers United Bruck Cricket Club will hold all club functions and game-day operations from the multi-purpose building adjacent to the cricket nets.

This decision has been forced upon us by the Wangaratta Rovers Football Netball Club (WRFNC), who have decided that we are no longer welcome to use their facilities.

A letter from WRFNC last week advised us (in part):

“We have received advice, that the use by your Club of the licenced area of the Pavilion, is jeopardising our Liquor Licence.

“As such, the licenced area of the facility is not available for your use for the 2019/20 cricket season.

“We believe the best long term option for your Club is to relocate to the new community facility at the Reserve.”

The RUBCC executive and committee are extremely disappointed with this decision, as it goes against what WRFNC executive members had relayed to us in the days leading up to the decision.

Having digested the information, we are excited about this forced change in our location for our operations, and will strive to ensure that club members notice little difference in the running of the club.

In the short term, the RUBCC will not be able sell alcohol on the premises, however we are currently working hard to rectify this problem as soon as possible.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to email me at

Kind regards

Peter Whitten
