The Birth of a Club

 

Here is how the Nambour Chronicle reported on the birth of our club almost 100 years ago

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cricket Chatters by Long Stop

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Yandina folk have formed a club and after a few weeks practise will be looking

 

for scalps. I believe some new blood in the person of one Thompson who is doing yeomen

 

service as coach. Yandina should come into the association at once or their matches will

 

have to be fewer than otherwise would be the case.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first game wasn't played until 26/02/1904 and was against Bli Bli.

The Yandina Cricket Club is one of the few clubs on the Sunshine Coast who have fielded teams

in the local competition continuously since itís humble beginnings.
