Cricket club plans reunion

Woy Woy Cricket Club is organising a reunion of players, supporters and officials to celebrate its 80th anniversary in local competition.

As part of its anniversary celebrations, the club will host a reunion dinner at Everglades Country Club in Woy Woy on Saturday, September 19.

"Cricket in the Woy Woy district goes back much further and this history is currently being researched," said club member Mr John Ridley.

"For example, Woy Woy is recorded as playing a game against Jilliby in 1909 to 1910 and playing in the Wyong District Cricket Association between 1915 and 1916.

"Woy Woy was an inaugural member of the Gosford District Cricket Association in 1920 to 1921, playing as Blackwall in 1921 to 1922 who pulled out of the competition during the 1922 to 1923 season.

"Woy Woy came back into the Gosford District Cricket Association in 1928 to 1929 and played as Woy Woy through to 1937 to 1938.

"Woy Woy did not play again until after World War II, re-entering the competition in 1953 to 1954 and playing every year since, except 1960 to 1961.

"To the present day, Woy Woy has won 15 premierships in all senior grades (open age teams) and the Club Championship in 1968 to 1969.

"All ex-players, officials and supporters of the Woy Woy Cricket Club are invited to attend the reunion, which will be used as a curtain raiser to the new season in September."
