The Goatherders second tour to Queensland (first since 2010) has proved a wonderful success both on and off the field, with the highlight being victory under lights at Caloundra CC in a day/night 100 over game split into two matches to reclaim Gerald’s Ashes trophy. The urn itself is safely stored in Akaroa due to quarantine restrictions but this did not stop the expected celebrations by a victorious group of 13 touring Herders with 9 x 0.5’s who were on hand to witness the exciting finish.
A brilliant time was had by both teams and the tour finished on a high on Sunday at Shailer Park in Brisbane with a 10 run victory over a strong Griffith Uni Old Boys team featuring Whispering Ted (HT#10) at the bowling crease. A special thanks is extended to GH#1, GH#2 and GH#8 for all the organising and effort that goes into making the Goatherders such a successful concept.
We look forward to the next opportunity to host the Herders in Qld (hopefully not another 8 years away) and we eagerly await our return to the Banks Peninsula in Feb 2019.
Best wishes and safe travels to all,
The Honest Trundlers
