Another on the way for Cameron Los­ing crick­eters in the­val­ley

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Front Page -

NATALIE Cameron wasn't able to toast be­ing in busi­ness for 21 years with a nice glass of sparkling be­cause she is preg­nant.

The NRC Com­mu­ni­ca­tions founder, who cel­e­brated her 43rd birth­day on Wed­nes­day, re­vealed last week that she and fi­ancé Wade Har­ri­son are ex­pect­ing a baby boy in Fe­bru­ary.

Cameron has a five-year-old daugh­ter while Wade has two chil­dren.

The busi­ness­woman started NRC Com­mu­ni­ca­tions in her Dennis Road, Su­bi­aco home 21 years ago when she was just 21years-old be­fore mov­ing to an of­fice space on Rokeby Road. THERE was no sledg­ing in women’s cricket when Peta Verco played for Aus­tralia in the 1970s and ’80s.

But Verco, who played 13 test matches for Aus­tralia, re­vealed at the WACA sea­son launch last week that she did try and put the poms off their game ahead of the 1984-85 Ashes.

“I had to bil­let two of the English girls un­til two days be­fore the Ashes started,” she said.

“I lived in the Swan Val­ley so tried to get them lost out there but that didn't work.” Aus­tralia won that Ashes crown 2-1. Verco played along­side now WACA chief ex­ec­u­tive Christina Matthews and de­scribed her as a “chirpy” wicket keeper.

“She gave lots of ad­vice, es­pe­cially to the bat­ters,” she said.
