OCEAN Ridge Senior Cricket Club has a new patron in Joondalup MLA Emily Hamilton.
The club has been based in Heathridge since 1981, supporting local talent through its competition in the WA Suburban Turf Cricket Association, as well as socially.
As a patron of the club, Ms Hamilton hopes to encourage and support the players and cricket community in developing young talent, while the club continues to build its profile in the Joondalup area.
This includes a new committee with a vision to improve club culture and facilities.
“Running a sporting club relies on individuals with a passion for the game and the community they are a part of, who are committing their time and effort for the greater group,” president Michael Watson said.
“We are excited that Emily Hamilton has come on board and we are looking forward to creating a strong and ongoing partnership.”
Ms Hamilton said supporting grassroots sport “not only nurtures future talent but has many benefits for the wider community”.
The club is currently preparing for the next season and is looking for players to join all grades, as well as for financial sponsors.
