Last year, Gloucester District Cricket Association celebrated Australia Day with a Russell Coight themed match.

This year, they have declared war.

It will be a grudge match between the young and the old, with the young ones hoping to take the title.

Taking place on the Number One Oval on Friday, January 26 at 10am, after the official Australia Day ceremonies are finished, the over 35s will play the under 35s.

The Gloucester over 35s men’s team have been the reining champions of the Mid North Coast Cricket Inter-district over 35s cricket competition for the past three seasons and are currently coming second, so the match is sure not to disappoint.

Everyone is welcome to come out to support the players.

The club is hoping to make it an annual event.
