Essendon honours Walshy

2013 marks the 50th Year of service to the Essendon Cricket Club by veteran scorer Mike Walsh.

To commemorate Mike's outstanding achievement, the Club has arranged a ‘Toast & Roast’ Night on Saturday 23rd February, 2013. The night promises to be very enjoyable, with dinner and speakers from Mike’s 5 decades of cricket service.

Mike's wonderful contribution, not only to Essendon CC, but also VCA/Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia, began with the Bombers' First XI in 1963-64.

Almost 50 years later, he continues to travel all across the city week after week to accurately record what happens on the park onto the scoresheets.mike_walsh_r12

His total number of matches is more than 1,100, and that tally doesn't include Premier lower XIs, State 2nds matches, State trial matches, Futures' League matches!

Congratulations Mike!
