I was passionate enough about the game to spend many hours earlier this year as a Sec. 274 party pushing the case for Hagley Oval to become a venue for Test Cricket (I just couldn’t bear the thought of the naysayers winning and me not having done my bit to try and achieve a positive outcome – it should have been a no brainer!)
Having been a member of the Burnside West Cricket Club for 50 years and struggling to maintain a position in the senior team in the early 1960’s with cricketers like Graham Dowling, Brian Hasting and the indefatigable Tony Timpson leading the senior team, but mainly as a Presidents grade player for 35 years, it seemed that I should put something back into the game.
Fox and Associates having been sponsoring the BWUC Presidents grade team for a number of years now and this year with teams required to come up with a name we were unexpectedly done the honour of having the BWUCC calling themselves “The Foxes“ – and to top this off, by winning the last game of the season The Foxes finished up being the competition winners of the 2012/2013 Presidents grade! How good is that for a sponsor? There are many talented players in the team and they achieved wonderful results, well done guys.
Go the Foxes!
