After local backlash, the State government has decided not to convert the Canterbury Cricket Ground into a concrete car park during level crossing removal work.

AFL Legend and long time member of Canterbury Cricket Club, Francis Bourke, told Tom Elliott it was a “huge relief” to the community.

“We would have been in danger of losing our players,” he said.

“After all the main reason to be part of our club would be to play cricket.

“It would’ve meant they would have gone and played somewhere else.

“We have it in writing that they won’t use our cricket ground so I guess it is locked in.”
