Lo­cals trace cricket his­tory

Pilbara News - - Sport - Louise Alling­ham

The West Pil­bara Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion is seek­ing in­for­ma­tion from long­stand­ing or for­mer Pil­bara lo­cals about the club’s his­tory.

WPCA pres­i­dent Gavin Pater­son said the as­so­ci­a­tion was mainly look­ing for Coun­try Week win­ners from the mid-70s, ’80s and a few in the ’90s.

“We’re look­ing for peo­ple who have been around for ages or knows any­one who was here or played,” he said.

“If we can get 40 years, that’d be a good ef­fort.”

The WPCA was re­cently re­united with an old tro­phy dat­ing back to the mid-70s af­ter a club mem­ber spot­ted it at the Roe­bourne Prison Mu­seum.

The find prompted an in­ves­ti­ga­tion into find­ing and fill­ing in the miss­ing years of cham­pi­ons.

WPCA hopes to dis­play the tro­phy and the full list of cham­pi­ons at the Kar­ratha Leisure­plex.

If any­one can help, email Gavin Pater­son on Gav­inP@allpest.com.au
