Back to Greymare planned for later in the year

A REUNION of past Greymare cricketers will be part of Back to Greymare celebrations on October 6.

It is half a century since Greymare won the Warwick cricket premiership under the captaincy of Peter Cleary.

The concrete pitch on the cricket ground is in remarkably good shape after a long break and can be used on October 6 after two minor repair jobs.

There will be cricket on the day but October 6 won't be all about cricket.

There will be morning markets, musical entertainment, a display of memorabilia and an auction with part of the proceeds to go to RACQ LifeFlight.

A Daily News article from 1927 states the Greymare Cricket Club was formed on September 12, 1927.

Bert Humphreys was the first captain and Kev McDonnell the inaugural vice-captain.

Cricket was played off and on before Greymare fielded a team in Warwick in the 1960s and early 1970s. A number of Greymare players then joined Wheatvale and some are part of the current Wheatvale team.

The district fielded a cricket team in the Australia Day Carnival during part of the 1990s.

For more information on the day, please call Greymare Hall Committee president Matt Cleary on 0428987340
