Kyabram’s Test cricketer Matt Elliott will skipper an invitational side for the ‘Farewell KDCA’ clash and reunion.
Kyabram’s Test cricketer Matt Elliott is a certain starter for the ‘Farewell KDCA’ clash and reunion at the Kyabram recreation reserve on Friday night, January 4.
Elliott said he would be honoured to skipper the invitational side which will play a limited overs game against a combined team from the former KDCA’s history-making Provincial and Division 2 Melbourne Country side of 2002 and also the 2001 division 2 champion side.
‘‘It’s a fantastic idea and count me in. I’m really looking forward to it,’’ Elliott, who now lives in Bendigo, said this week.
Another former KDCA star Rohan Larkin, who played for Victoria, and is a member of the historic 2002 side which landed the only Melbourne Country Week Provincial title for the association in 2002, is also a starter.
A dual premiership coach with Stanhope, Larkin said he is looking forward to catching up with former teammates and rival players from his memorable days in the KDCA.
‘‘I can’t wait to get there; it will be a great night,’’ said Larkin.
Organisers are more than happy with the reaction of players who have been invited or are eligible to play in the match.
‘‘We haven’t got a knockback yet — it’s certainly creating a lot of interest,’’ one of the match and reunion organisers, KDCA historian, Trevor Stone, said at the weekend.
‘‘Invitations have been sent to everyone who attended the KDCA’s centenary reunion in 2005 but an invitation is there for everyone to attend the game,’’ Mr Stone said.
