Cobras clinch outright
EACH year the Leongatha & District Cricket
Association recognise the endeavours of two
people who have made huge contributions to
Round 12 of local cricket is named after
them. This coming round of cricket is the
Wood-Palmer Recognition Round.
Rob ‘Woody’ Wood joined the Koonwarra
Cricket Club in 1977.
He played in the A Grade side until 1987 as
an elegant top order batsman and an accom-
plished wicket keeper.
Rob continued his successful cricket career
in the club’s B and C grade sides until 1991,
leading the B grade side to two premierships
in 82/83 and 88/89 and the C Grade side to a
premiership in 89/90.
Undoubtedly, Woody’s greatest legacy to
Koonwarra-Leongatha RSL Cricket Club and
cricket across Victoria would be his amazing
contribution to junior cricket.
Rob has helped build the skills, knowledge
and passion of hundreds of male and female
junior players, many whom have gone on to
have successful cricket careers at representa-
tive level and also at their home club of Koon-
Rob coached the juniors to consecutive pre-
mierships in 88/89 and 89/90.
Rob’s unrivalled dedication to our great game
of cricket is shown with the huge success of
the girls’ cricket competition now being played
Woody is a life member of Koonwarra-Leon-
gatha RSL Cricket Club and at the end of sea-
son 2015/16, the club announced that a new
club award, ‘Best Junior Club Person’, would
be named in his honour acknowledging the
dedication he has shown to the club.
Off the field, Rob has been an active member
of the club’s committee, serving several rolls
during his many years at the club.
Patrick ‘Pud’ Palmer has had a long career in
cricket starting at the age of 11.
He first arrived at Glen Alvie as an 18 year
old and ended his first game with a five wicket
Since then he has had a very successful ca-
reer with Glen Alvie that has seen him play
over 330 games with the club.
During that time Pat played A Grade for five
years and individually has won nine bowling
awards, one batting award, and four Cricketer
of the Year awards with Glen Alvie.
A favourite individual highlight was his in-
volvement in the C Grade 2006/07 Premier-
Pat has also done fantastic work for Glen Al-
vie off field as shown by the fact he has been on
the Glen Alvie committee since the age of 20.
Some of his many roles have been treasurer,
groundsman and overall club handyman.
He has also been the B Grade and C Grade
captain at various times.
After a bad truck accident, Pat still wanted to
be involved in cricket and although not playing
he contributed by serving on the LDCA com-
mittee of management as well as becoming a
respected LDCA umpire.
After four years of recuperating the lure of
the great game had him back playing for his
beloved Glen Alvie.
Those tricky little balls he bowls even had
him making an LDCA Team of the Year.
A stalwart of the Glen Alvie Cricket Club, Pat
epitomises what local cricket is about. Glen Al-
vie and indeed local cricket is all the better for
having people involved like Pud Palmer.
Rob Wood has done of power of work for
the Koonwarra-Leongatha RSL Cricket Club
and junior cricket.
Pat Palmer has been a stalwart of the Glen
Alvie Cricket Club.

five and come all the way through the ranks at
our club and we’re really pleased to see them get
recognition and go overseas.
“For Nick to play for Poowong and next thing
be representing Australia is an awesome achieve-
“Pat and Keith play for Phillip Island in vari-
ous competitions and Nick plays for Poowong,
and the three come together and play for Korum-
burra in State League on Friday nights. They rep-
resent Korumburra which is essentially a South
Gippsland representative team, and play for their
own local associations in tournaments.”
The boys returned from the Australian Country
Junior Basketball Camp recently, where the top
20 Country Victoria basketballers were split into
two teams which played off against other coun-
try teams from South Australia, Tasmania, NSW
and New Zealand.
Nick and Keith were part of the Goldminers
team which won the tournament, and Patrick
played for the Bushrangers team.
The top 10 players from Country Australia
