The first round of the 2021/2022 Ringwood District Cricket Association season begins on 13 November.

Lilydale Cricket Club’s first XI will start its season away on a tough trip to final winners South Croydon at Griff Hunt Reserve.

In the 2020/21 season Lilydale finished seventh out of the eight team Lindsay Trollope Shield with 21 points from 14 games, while South Croydon finished 3rd with 57 points.

Lilydale lost both games to South Croydon last season before missing out on finals.

Elsewhere in the Lindsay Trollope Shield last season’s first placed side Montrose will play Warntina South at home, Ainslie Park will host Mooroolbark and Norwood play North Ringwood at Mullum Reserve.

The 14 game season will run from 13 November until 26 February before finals are played between 5 March and 19 March.
