Dymock teaches youngsters
WHEN Mundubbera junior cricketers were offered the opportunity of being coached by former Australian and Queensland cricketer Geoff Dymock they turned up at Martin Love Oval in large numbers.
Dymock played 21 tests and 15 one-day internationals between 1974 and 1980 and on debut he took five wickets in the second innings against New Zealand in Adelaide.
He was the third bowler to to take all 10 opposition wickets in a test match, and remains one of only six players to have achieved this unusual feat.
At the time Dymock was playing cricket for Australia, many other fast bowlers were also playing well and Queens- land was trying tirelessly but unsuccessfully to win the Sheffield Shield.
At age 34, in 1980, the way he wheeled down his left-arm seamers in India and against England and West Indies at home was memorable.
Mundubbera junior cricketers, their parents and coaches appreciated how much he was able to teach them in one afternoon.
“Thirty-one children attended the coaching clinic and with new club signings on the day, junior cricket now has 35 members,” committee member Julie Pashley said.
“It is a large number jump from last year’s 18 members.
Junior cricket training is held on Wednesdays from 6– 7.30pm at Martin Love Oval.
