Dougie still the entertainer decades after his last test

IT might be 31 years since cricket legend Dougie Walters quit first class cricket, but he has retained his ability to entertain.

A great crowd attended the Tucabia-Copmanhurst Cricket Club reunion on September 22 at the Tucabia Community Hall.

Special guest Doug Walters had the crowd spellbound during his talk as he relived some of his many stories from years gone by.

His casual and larrikin personality, which endeared him to the crowds decades ago, was more than evident, connecting with young and old on the night.

Many guests travelled long distances to attend. Among the crowd were members of the club's original first grade side which won the competition in their inaugural year. All eight Life Members were represented as well.

MC for the evening was club stalwart Steve Whitton.

The club thanked him for his professional running of the event, along with Security 1 guards and RSA staff at the bar.

A number of local ladies volunteered many hours of their time to cater for the evening, showing community spirit is very much alive and well.

With the support of current and past club members, the evening went off without a hitch, leaving many asking if the club will celebrate its 40th year with another reunion in two years time - it just might happen.
