Sunday morning. Early May. Central Victoria. Not surprisingly, no scoreboard action at the United Cricket Club.
The club describes itself as ‘Powerhouse of the EVCA with 17 Division 1 premierships and the envy of cricket clubs everywhere’.
The EVCA is the Emu Valley Cricket Association. Seventeeen Division 1 premierships is impressive. ‘The envy of cricket clubs everywhere’ is a big call, but a proud call. Why not blow your own trumpet?
The United Cricket Club in Bendigo is not to be confused with the Bendigo United Cricket Club.
