THE United Cricket Club is preparing to raise its bat for a half-century when it celebrates its 50th anniversary later this month.
The Tigers will hold a 50-year reunion on Saturday, November 24, at their Ewing Park clubrooms from 7pm.
United was formed in 1968 out of an amalgamation between two church cricket teams – Quarry Hill United and Golden Square Methodist.
The club first played in the Bendigo Matting Association before joining the Emu Valley Cricket Association in 1985 and has since been a power of the competition, having won 16 division one premierships, plus another 16 in lower grades.
Among the guest speakers at the Tigers’ 50-year celebrations will be race caller Rick McIntosh and Western Bulldogs player Fergus Greene, who are both ex-players at the club.
The celebration is open to all who have an interest in the club.
As part of the club’s 50th anniversary, the Tigers have developed a DVD celebrating their decorated history.
