Shield to honour local cricketers
THE winner of the tonight’s final will be awarded the prestigious Neil and Coral Frame Shield.
The name Frame is synonymous in local cricketing circles and the shield is a fitting way to remember two people who lived and breathed cricket.
Neil died in 1994 after a long battle with cancer. He was an excellent all-rounder who won numerous premierships with South Services and in doing so picked up the batting and all-rounder awards on many occasions. Neil also represented the CRCA and is a life member.
After retiring from the game Neil, who was referred to as the ‘Silver Fox’ turned his focus to umpiring and administration.
His wife Coral was made a life member of the CRCA Ladies Auxiliary in 1990 and spent tireless hours working behind the scenes. Coral’s commitment to cricket was invaluable.
