Aussie greats and Bulls stars to make debut in this region
Words by Nick Crockford

The Bulls Masters will make their debut on the Redcliffe Peninsula next month to help celebrate 100 years(1921-2021) of the Warehouse Cricket Association (WCA).

Two days of centenary events had to be postponed in last year due to COVID-19, but the team of Queensland and Australia Test greats, is coming back.

On Friday March 18, the legends will play a T20 match against a Warehouse Invitation side to officially open the new floodlights at Peninsula Cricket Club’s Filmer Park ground.

Former Test players Ryan Harris, main picture, Andy Bichel and Jimmy Maher have played for Bulls Masters with Queensland regulars Joe Dawes, Luke Feldman, Nathan Reardon.

Bulls Masters line-up is yet to be confirmed, so too the Warehouse team.

However, the evening at Woody Point will be a family affair with fireworks between innings, face painting, fairy floss and food stalls.

It is a free, ticketed event via Eventbrite.com.au. Gates open 5pm, match starts 6.30pm.

“Following the disappointment of having the headline event of the centenary celebrations called off last year, we are delighted to have the Bulls Masters making their first visit to the peninsula,” Lawrence Christie, the WCA Development Officer and Delegate to Queensland Cricket, said.

Before the T20 game, Bulls Masters will also run a coaching session, at the Woody Point ground, with young players from Redcliffe Cyclones.

A Centenary Dinner was held in November at Queensland Cricketers’ Club with Test great Ian Healey the guest speaker, and Collette La Frantz, the granddaughter of first WC chairman.

Also present was three members of the Marks family from peninsula Cricket Club – Jim, a life member and foundation member of PCC; Brett, Jim’s son and a long-time player; and Hayden, Jim’s grandson and a current WC representative player.

Bulls Masters support youth and regional communities in “developing citizenship, discipline, teamwork and physical well-being through fundraising, events and the great game of cricket”.
