Leagues club donate frogbox
MAREEBA Cricket fans will now be able to watch their games from the comfort of their couch thanks to a generous donation by the Mareeba Leagues Club.
A brand-new $3,500 “Frog box” will be set up at the club’s home games to capture all the action and keep score throughout the game.
Cricket club president Irene Roy was ecstatic to receive this donation and looks forward to utilising it at their next game.
“We were very fortunate… it is a bit much for our club as a non-for-profit to buy our own so them offering to purchase one is absolutely amazing,” she said.
“(The players) feel like they have stepped up in the world and now they can look back at the live streams and look at ways they improve in the game.”
Leagues club president David Christenson said he was glad to be donating $3,500 to the club.
“This is what the leagues club is for, supporting different charities and community groups and I think this certainly will benefit the club,” he said. “When I figure out how to work it, I definitely will (watch the live streams of the game).”
