EAST BURWOOD HONOURS FLAGS
East Burwood Cricket Club will hold its annual past players day on Saturday, January 19 at which the club will acknowledge a number of premiership milestones. With many of its records incomplete, the club is finding it challenging to contact members of those teams that will be recognised. The club is inviting all former East Burwood, Bennettswood and East Burwood/Bennettswood players to attend the function at the East Burwood Reserve with the premiership wins of the East Burwood A Grade side of 1988, Bennettswood’s C Grade side of 1988, Bennettswood’s Ray McIntosh Shield winners of 1989 and East Burwood/ Bennettswood’s Shield 2 (1994) and C Grade (1994) sides to be acknowledged. “At our past players days we’ve never really acknowledged any of the premiership milestones, the five years, the 10 years, the 20 years,” former premiership player Anthony Apps said. “But our records aren’t that great, so we’re relying on word of mouth and social media.” The event will start at 1.00pm as East Burwood hosts Bulleen Templestowe for the second day of a McIntosh Shield two-dayer. The club will also hold its major fund raising raffle that night. For more details, and for past players to get in touch, contact David Nelthorpe (0404 018 574).
