Tom Price crick­eters ready their best mo

Pilbara News - - Sport - Pe­ter de Krui­jff

Af­ter the suc­cess of last year’s in­au­gu­ral Tom Price Movem­ber Char­ity Cricket match, or­gan­is­ers have de­cided to grow their best Merv Hughes stash and take an­other swing at rais­ing money for be­yond­blue.

The match will be held on Novem­ber 28 at the Clem Thomp­son Oval from 5pm with the Be­yond Blues once again match­ing up against the Pro-State War­riors, both with a point to prove af­ter last year’s draw. Each team will be made up of 12 play­ers drawn from which­ever Movem­ber fundrais­ers who join the Rio Tinto Tom Price team raise the most.

Those cho­sen will com­pete ac­cord­ing to in­door cricket rules with bat­ters go­ing in pairs for four overs, a loss of wicket equalling mi­nus five runs, and each player hav­ing to bowl two overs.

Eight year Mo-Bro and event or­gan­iser Brad Mal­in­gre said the match had re­ceived over­whelm­ing sup­port from spon­sors such as CADDS Group, Pin­jarra Crane Hire, NWMC, Ve­o­lia, Shire of Ash­bur­ton and Gu­mala.

“We have also had great sup­port from lo­cal com­mu­nity groups with the Fortes­cue Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion do­nat­ing some auc­tion items as well as some framed Pil­bara Pho­tos from Kaz O’Brien from Ram­ble and Drift,” he said.

“We are still on the look­out for more prizes to go into our 200 ticket draw.”

The Rio Tinto Tom Price Movem­ber team is 37th in the na­tional team rank­ings.
