Teams unite during annual cricket match
CRICKET: After more than three decades since its inception, one of the Mundubbera Seven-A-Side founders is pleased to see the annual competition still thriving.
"We've had some notables come and play for Queensland, Sippel and Martin Love, and the facility in Mundubbera is good, it's close to town,” Barry Holznagel said.
"It's a huge feat for the town to have this competition going strong more than three decades later, we have people come from all over the place.”
Last year the seven a-side competition had 50 teams nominate, with teams down to 37 this year possibly due to the rainy weather on Sunday.
Secretary Colleen Whelan said it was a successful carnival.
"We had a lot of rain on Saturday night and we didn't know what was happening, we only had one team pull out from Gayndah but we were happy with the competition,” Whelan said.
"Most of the teams we spoke to said they'll be back next year.”
On Saturday night many people came out to watch the toad races unfold, followed by the Calcutta where players could auction off teams.
Whelan said one of the highlights of the competition was seeing past generation of cricketers come along with their family to participate.
"Some of the people who played years ago are bringing their sons and their daughters and they're taking part in the carnival,” she said.
"It's good to see the sport thriving.”
