Round 9 - Saturday, January 6
RUSTY cricketers come in all shapes and
Some have just a passing interest in the
game, others played when they were younger
and now enjoy the challenge of trying to find
the skills they thought they once had.
Others like a chat, the opportunity to remi-
nisce, or the banter as they pad up or measure
out their run-ups.
Others are campers or caravaners at the Loch
Reserve and enjoy the time to mix with locals.
There’s the Saturday cricketers that can’t get
enough competitive cricket, and the old cam-
paigners that offer encouragement to all.
There’s one young bloke who stumbled
across ‘Rusty Cricketers’ when he found
the basketball ring had been vandalised. He
joined in with the cricketers, has become a
regular, and his cricket and outlook on life has

BASS Coast’s had its own ‘15 minutes of
fame’ recently after a video of a Wonthaggi
man running smack-bang into a tree - during
a game of backyard cricket - went viral.
The short video shows fielder Luke Blundell
at Pirate Park in Cape Paterson sprinting for
the ball, before hitting a tree and falling on
The video of the Christmas Eve incident has
racked up more than half a million views on
the SportsBet Facebook page.
The 11-second video, starting with a hit
from batsman Kainen Schrape, has also ap-
peared on Channel Ten’s ‘Backyard Legends’
video series during the cricket.
Jaye Foon uploaded it to his personal Face-
book page, where it’s been viewed more than
“Our hope was to just get Sean’s video on
Backyard Legends but it went much further
than anticipated,” he said.
The backyard cricket game is a Christmas
Eve tradition for the mates, now in its 13th year.
“It started off with 10-a-side and it’s just
grown and grown, I think we had about 32-a-
side this year,” he said.
“I don’t run it, I just turn up and now we’re
in our mid-30s and the wives bring the kids,
it’s a great day out.
“My oldest is 11 and he gives it a shot too.”
Jaye uploaded the video on Twitter and
Facebook on Christmas Eve, and didn’t think
much of it.
That was until his phone began going “ba-
nanas” with social media notifications.
“It just went crazy.
“There were so many more bloopers from
the day, we never ever thought to video them.
“It wasn’t until someone had bowled a crap
one and so we decided to start recording and
“Everyone’s pretty chuffed. I reckon there’ll
be a few more video cameras out next year!”
The video is on the Sentinel-Times’ Face-
book page, with thanks to Sean Roche for
filming the incident.

the batsmen during a drinks
break which was a bit differ-

and went on batting.
“But we’re pleased to have
the support, ” he said.
