Premier Cricket's Indigenous Round
Date of Event Victorian Premier Cricket: Fri Dec 9, 2016 12:54PM

 

 

 

Premier Cricket, with great support from the Northcote and St Kilda Cricket Clubs, will be celebrating our first Indigenous Round tomorrow with a special event at Bill Lawry Oval.

 

A brief commemoration of the day will take place from 10am at Bill Lawry Oval, with special guests including Aunty Joy Wandin, Ian Coutts (Mullagh Wills Foundation), club presidents Mark Sundberg and Paul Ryan, senior CV personnel Rohan O'Neill, Mike Ronchi and Ashley Sweet, as well as players of both clubs, including prominent Indigenous players, Ben Abbatangelo (Northcote) and Damon Egan (St Kilda).

 

The special day celebrates the forthcoming 150th anniversary of a Boxing Day match between an Aboriginal XI and the Melbourne Cricket Club in 1866. Over 8,000 spectators attended the game. This Aboriginal Team later became the first Australian team to tour England in May, 1868.

 

The Northcote v St Kilda match, which commences at 11am, will utilise special Noogal Toengarrt Tani stumps during the game to acknowledge the Indigenous contribution to cricket.

 

Men's Premier matches reverts to the traditional two-day format after a hectic fortnight of T20s over the past two weekends. Women's Premier continues with the T20 program.

 

The complete listing of all Premier matches appears below. All Premier 1sts matches (Men's and Women's) start at 11am.
