Cricket Champions at three score and 10

Our national cricket champions

The recent Over 60s National Cricket Championships played in Adelaide last month revealed two  local champions – Des Fuss (left from Moonta and wicketkeeper Michael Willson formerly of Kangaroo Island,  (right) who were selected for the Over 70s National Cricket  2013 Team.  Both men have captained the South Australian Over 60`s teams in the National Championships for the last 2 years at Canberra and Armidale.


Along with Michael & Des, two other South Australians were also selected in the National side –  Jim Curtis from Adelaide and Graham Ashby from Mount Gambier.

Michael, an opening bat and wicket keeper, averaged nearly 50 run in opening partnerships in the recent four games of the National Championships at Adelaide. Des is an all-rounder while Jim and Graham are hard hitting batsmen` There is a possibility that the Australian team may tour England next year.


Meanwhile the Over 60s national team has a new SA recruit – Roy Schulz – who in his heyday was a crack bowler in the Murray Bridge region. The team will go to the US in April.
