The Trashes

Sydney Flying Bats have approached the Sydney Rangers to play a social fundraiser 12 over a-side cricket match in support of Community Brave to be held on the 26 January.

We are keen to seek interested players for the match we expect at this time will be mixed teams. Please email Dan at using the link to complete the email template.

This should make a fun and interesting day to try something other than soccer, and should provide some very entertaining results for our supporters.

Further details will be provided in the January newsletter.
