Quinns rocks at awards event
QUINNS Rocks Junior Cricket Club received three awards, including club of the year, at the Community Junior Cricket Council presentations recently.
About 200 people, including WA Cricket Association chief executive Christina Matthews and Western Warriors Jason Behrendorff and David Moody, attended the March 14 function at the WACA.
The Quinns club received the Len Pavy club of the year award, along with the ‘Growing cricket for girls’ award, having gone from no girls-only teams in the 2016-17 season to two a year later.
Stewart O’Connor was also named club co-ordinator of the year, having won the MILO in2CRICKET Co-ordinator of the Year award last year.
Community Junior Cricket Council chairman Geoff Parkinson said Quinns Rocks had been acknowledged for taking a proactive approach across a wide range of areas.
“Quinns Rocks has been very active in promoting the game within the community,” he said.
“The club has also fostered relationships with newly established clubs in their area to support their development, along with clubs in other regions.”
President Daniel Shortill said the club’s success resulted from its members’ efforts to ensure the club’s 251 members could play cricket in the local community.
