Club makes Hughes top ticketholder
Former Australian cricket captain Kim Hughes has been named Kwinana Cricket Club’s No.1 ticketholder for the 2018-19 season.
Hughes, the only West Australian to captain Australia on a fulltime basis, will promote cricket in Kwinana and has indicated his willingness to visit the club during the season to address players and work with junior coaches.
Hughes led Australia in 28 of his 70 Test matches, in which he scored 4415 runs at 37.41, in a playing career that spanned 1977-1984.
He also played 97 one day internationals and played for WA until 1989 before finishing his first-class career with a stint in South Africa with Natal.
The club begins pre-season training on August 19 and its junior registration day is on August 26, from 2-4pm, at Fiona Harris Pavilion in Orelia.
