IF you happened to be near the Euroa Memorial Oval on Saturday night, you would have heard some loud music and perhaps a few screams from local residents.

While it was too early for a Euroa Magpies football game, a few players could be seen, clad in black, playing what was a winning game of T20 cricket against the Euroa Cricket Club.

Part of Euroa’s annual Pink Stumps Day celebrations, which included a successful high tea held at the Mercy Centre, a string of locals and visitors crowded around the oval to watch a team of highly skilled sportsmen play an entertaining game of cricket.

With current C grade cricketer Broderick Floyd doing most of the commentating and David ‘Mazzie’ Mastin donning a pink hat as referee, the crowd cheered as local boy Adam Wright made run after run and as footballer Robbie Wilson taking a blinder in the covers, resulting in the cricket club finishing all out for 106.

In the end, the football club won off the last delivery, with highlights including Stuart ‘Danger’ Patten’s “slogging at the death”, with both Robbie Wilson and Andrew Bell delivering some unbelievable catches.

Under 17 netballer Ada Chessor also had a go, showing the boys a thing or two.
