President’s cup returns to pitch

IT will be a battle of the ages for the ages as the Atherton Cricket Club hosts their annual President’s Cup this Saturday at Loder Park, with all the proceeds to support breast cancer nurses.

The President’s Cup is an age-old tradition of the club and was put on hold for many years until last year where the club restarted the match in support of the Nasser family.

All proceeds raised from both the canteen and bar will be going directly towards supporting breast cancer nurses while popular sponsor Darren Halpin has once again made a generous donation of $2,500.

The cup was well attended last year by players, club members and locals alike so club president Tony Potts is hopeful people will turn out for another fun day of cricket. 

“Come along on the day, watch some entertaining cricket, have a beer and let’s raise some money for breast cancer nurses,” he said. 

“Next year we will be fundraising to go towards a different charity.” 

There will be a curtain raiser match to be played before the main game between the Young Bucks side and a not so young, Old Bulls side starting at 10am. 

The average age of the Young Bucks team this year is 14, while the average age of the Old Bulls is 54.
