during day one of the Third Test match between Australia and Sri Lanka at the Sydney Cricket Ground on January 3, 2013 in Sydney, Australia.
Tocumwal’s youngest cricketers last week had the chance to play on the hallowed Sydney Cricket Ground pitch.
First year Tocumwal MILO coordinator Sheree Craig said the group had been chosen to provide on ground entertainment at the third test between Australia and Sri Lanka in Sydney on January 3.
‘‘This is a once in a life time opportunity,’’ she said.
‘‘We are the first club in the MVCA to be given this opportunity.’’
Before the group left, they received funds from the MVCA who donated $500 while also holding a raffle.
Raffle prizes included a signed bat from NSW Speedblitz Blues stars Michael Clarke, Shane Watson, Phillip Hughes, Brad Haddin, Usman Khawaja and many more.
Local businesses including Tocumwal Golf Club, Matt & Trish Wooden, Foodworks and IGA Tocumwal lended a hand to get the children to the SCG.
During the Vodafone Pink Test, the MILO in2CRICKET kids kept fans entertained during the lunch break with a range of activities and games on the SCG, Cricket NSW game development general manager Cameron French said.
‘‘The feedback we have received from previous years tells us that this in an experience the children won’t forget as they continue their cricket journey.’’
