HUME Cricket Association president Tim Sanson says the competition will fold if another team isn’t found in time for the start of the season.
The North Albury Knightriders have pulled out of the league, leaving just three teams.
Sanson said that wasn’t viable and that the competition, which has run since 1961, would be forced to fold if another team didn’t put its hand up.
“If we don’t get at least four, we can’t run,” Sanson said.
“We’d like to have more than four, to be honest.
“At the very least we need four to keep going.
“If it doesn’t survive now, it won’t come back.”
The competition consists entirely of one-day games and has been used by winter sporting clubs to keep their playing groups together in a format that doesn’t impose on the football season.
But Sanson said that wasn’t a factor in joining.
“We’re open to anyone,” he said.
“Most of the teams come from existing sporting clubs whether it’s a footy club, soccer club or whatever.
“It keeps your own guys together over the summer, starts late, has a good break over Christmas and finishes before practice matches start.
“But you see people just playing casual games in the park with their mates on a Saturday that could easily join.
“It’s competitive, but casual.”
The season is scheduled to start on the first weekend of November, leaving a month for those interested in forming a new team.
