Western District celebrates 60 years

The Western District Cricket Club, which was amalgamated into the Goonellabah RSL Cricket Club in the 1990s, will celebrate its 60-year reunion on Saturday, September 23, at the Lismore Workers Club at 5pm.

Western Districts was formed in 1946, the same year that Lismore was declared a city. It is expected that three members of the first grade side that played the first game against the Northern Star Club in 1946 will be in attendance; Earl Gerrard (who was captain), Bob Hatt and Terry McGuire. Other former members to receive invitations include present Australian vice-captain Adam Gilchrist and well known local coach and administrator John McMahon.

Any ex player who has not received an invitation or would like more info should phone Russ Watt on 6624 4885.
