EIGHTY players took to the cricket pitch last week to take part in yet another successful All Abilities Cricket 2019 GV Harmony Cup Invitational.

Following the matches, Westpac presented a cheque for $1,000 to go towards funding the growth of all abilities cricket at the Shepparton/Youth Club United Cricket Club.

A Shepparton/Youth Club United Cricket Club representative said, “The 2019 GV Harmony Cup Invitational was a huge success.

“In its fourth year, this was our biggest one yet with 80 players and 40 support staff/spectators in attendance.

“Congratulations must go to Verney Road School who defeated Shepparton/Youth Club United Cricket Club/Connect GV Wallabies in the grand final.

“Both teams were unbeaten going into the final, although the Wallabies snuck through via a super over against Cobram & District Specialist School.

“Verney Road School were way too good though, winning the final easily.”
