South Coast Veterans vs ACT Over 60's on Thursday 11th February at Hanging Rock

Upcoming annual cricket match between the South Coast Veterans side and ACT Over 60's on Thursday 11th February at Hanging Rock commencing at 10:30am.

The match has two purposes: to acknowledge the contributions made by two stalwarts for each side-Ron Axelby, the first Australian captain in 2011 and our own Peter Miers, now deceased, who was a leading figure in cricket on the coast and was an active campaigner against a charcoal plant in Mogo many years ago. Secondly, to provide an opportunity for older men to improve both physical health. The fraternity of cricket is a wonderful experience for all.

This is the first time Eurobodalla been able to field a team made up almost exclusively of players of 60 years of ago or more. In fact, the oldest player is mid 70s! More games are envisioned. It is a 40 over per side match with batsmen being able to retire after 30 not out and recycle if overs permit. The standard of cricket will surprise spectators as many have played either first grade or have represented state/territory or even Australia at veterans level This is also a call out for senior men who would like to play again, to sign up. Contact Paul Cullen on 0499415867 for more details.
