CRICKET sea­son is just round the cor­ner and Wil­let­ton Dis­trict Cricket Club is about to cel­e­brate a ma­jor mile­stone. After start­ing life as the West Perth Cricket Club in 1889, a foun­da­tion mem­ber of the WA Cricket As­so­ci­a­tion, the club moved to Wil­let­ton in 1984. This sea­son will mark the 130th an­niver­sary of the West Perth Cricket Club and the 25th an­niver­sary of its move to the Wil­let­ton area. Wil­let­ton came close to glory last sea­son when it fin­ished sec­ond in the pre­mier grade, miss­ing out on top spot de­spite hav­ing the same num­ber of points as Clare­mont-Ned­lands. Led by cap­tain and Aus­tralian test opener Cam Ban­croft, the Drag­ons will be hope­ful of go­ing one bet­ter after los­ing to Melville in last year’s semi­fi­nals.
