Cricket allegations still unclear

AN Kingaroy is being undertaken by Bundaberg cricket officials.

All players who travelled with the team to Kingaroy have been asked to front a Bundaberg Cricket Association (BCA) judiciary tonight to be interviewed about an alleged incident that occurred on the trip.

BCA president Les Bennett yesterday refused to go into detail about what happened or the nature of the complaint until all players were interviewed.

But it is believed the investigation revolves around allegations of lewd activities carried out by some of the players on the team bus returning from Kingaroy.

“(Tomorrow) we should be in a position to talk, but I cannot talk while an investigation is ongoing,” Bennett said.

It is understood the BCA contacted presidents of each of the clubs this week to inform them that all players who were on the bus would be called to give evidence tonight.

At training on Tuesday most of the players were told about the hearing.

No charges have been laid and the exact nature of the complaint was not explained to players, presidents or the media.

It has been a horror month for Bundaberg representatives who faced heavy criticism over the side’s performance at Kingaroy.

The players were in Kingaroy for the weekend of November 7-8, playing against South Burnett in a Goodchild Shield match.

A shocking loss to the Wide Bay cricket minnows saw Bundaberg’s grip on the Goodchild Shield loosen after two straight losses.
