Pink Stumps Day at Belltrees results

Rouchel by 10 runs over Belltrees BUT Jane McGrath and the PINK Stumps Cancer Foundation outright winners. A tight finish and a great "community" day out with 200 locals in attendance raising over $22,000 for the Breast Cancer Foundation. 50 local sponsores donated items for the auction. Outstanding!

The BCG was presented in top condition due to the work done by curator, Jason Robinson from Ellerston, who added the finishing touches to the out field only hours before play. Unfortunately he managed only 1 over out in the middle with the bat to enjoy his hard work before his Belltrees team was bowled all out.

Maurice Collison (MC) and hard working secretary Katrina McCosker along with their committee/ "team" presented a wonderful day. Well done.

Old team members mixed with new and the kids played junior cricket behind the bar. Judy White unearthed a piece of history gold.; a trophy cricket ball from 1897 presented to Alfred Ebsworth (Belltrees) after scoring 139 runs against Rouchel on the same day 114 years ago.
