MEMBERS of the Under 16s Shepparton Youth Club United Cricket Club paid tribute to fallen cricket star, Phillip Hughes at the weekend, by observing a minute’s silence and sporting black armbands in memory of the cricketer.
23 year old Hughes, who passed away last week after being felled by a bouncer from Sean Abbott during a Sheffield Shield Match at the Sydney Cricket Ground on Tuesday last week, was the 408th Test Cricketer to play for Australia and was just scratching the surface of a promising career.
