Coffs cricketers play in Over 70s Australian Cricket Championships

The Over 70s Australian Cricket Championships is held in Launceston.

COFFS Harbour cricketers have been playing in the Over 70s Australian Cricket Championships in Launceston this week.

Coffs Harbour has six players representing NSW across the three divisions being contested.

The players competing in Tasmania are Bruce Lumb, Graham Doust (NSW Blues), John Leahy (Waratahs, Vice-Captain) John Lambert, Terry Crossland (Kangaroos) and Russell Gill (Wallabies).

The NSW Over 70s Championships that were to be held here in Coffs Harbour recently unfortunately did not go ahead with the heavy rain making the grounds unplayable.

Terry Herbert, Eric Higgins and Bruce Mackie recently returned from Penrith where the NSW Over 60s were held and the three players again showed great form.

Coffs Golden Oldies Cricket Club member Graham Doust said the club was looking for players to come and join them to play the game they love.

“Veterans cricket continues to grow in popularity and our Coffs Golden Oldies Cricket Club is always looking for
players to experience the mateship and fun that playing cricket provides,” he said.

“The team meets each Wednesday at 1pm at the Richardson Park nets in Sawtell.

“Those nearing that 60 milestone, or even passing the 70 milestone, are welcome to come along and join in.”
