One of our sponsors, Peter Lanham from Lanham Financial Advice, still loves his cricket. He recently played in the Over 60’s Nationals Tournament in Perth. Four games in five days was a great challenge, and we are pleased to report that the NSW side that Peter played for, defeated Queensland and Western Australia quite comprehensively, before they had a 192-run tie with Victoria.
Peter made runs batting at number 3 in the preliminary games, but in the Final against New Zealand, he had his off-stump cartwheeled by a quick 60-year-old Kiwi bowler as NSW slumped to 3-9 after 5 overs. They recovered to make 154, but it was never enough.
Peter noted that “it was enjoyable time and a tournament of great comradery”.
ESCC wishes to congratulate Peter on his efforts and would like to thank him for his ongoing support of the club. Looking forward to seeing some runs against the Kiwis, Peter.
