Northside defeat Southside in Old Boys competition
CRICKET: The annual Frenchville Sports Club Country Carnival brought together Central Queenslander cricketers past and present, each of whom has made their mark on the region's sport, for a three-day long weekend.
Former first grade and representative players gathered to provide an all-star Old Boys match-up on Saturday night.
The Northside and Southside teams showed spectators that they still had it, with the Northside team winning 5-153.
Stand-outs included Rupert Collins with 44 runs and Les Berryman with 33.
The Big Bash came after the Frenchville Sports Club Corporate T20 Division, which held its grand final on January 19, where Reece Plumbing defeated social team The Bangarangs.
Grand final players and other corporate cricketers, fresh from the eight-week season, joined the Old Boys sides.
A few familiar faces were present at the Saturday night event, including umpires Terry Williams and Tony Hoffman, and scorer Lex Wehmeier.
Wehmeier was a scorer for the Rockhampton Brothers team for over 30 years. Hoffman was a former first grade player and ather of Paul Hoffman, a NSW and Scotland international cricketer.
The event was a success and plenty of former team-mates took the opportunity to catch up and enjoy a fun-filled reunion.
