Cops & Kids Cricket Day 2016

The Annual 20th Man – Cops & Kids Cricket Match was held at Merv Hughes Oval, Footscray on Wednesday 16v March 2016.

This event is dedicated to breaking down barriers between Police and local youth.

This initiative would not be possible without the amazing support from Footscray Edgewater cricket club, Ken Stone (who also catered for an excellent BBQ),Victoria Police Association (especially our Umpire Ron Iddles), Sgt. Steve Meehan and the rest of the extraordinary members of Victoria Police, Geoff Bannister and McDonalds, legend -Merv Hughes, Kevin Eastwood, star of screen – Kevin Harrington, Bill Richie and all those who volunteered their time.

Our local Police donate this day from their own time and it shows that they are committed to creating positive pathways for Victorian kids.

They are very special people and we are very lucky to have them. Thank you so much!!!
