Pharmacy cricketers make their mark at MCG
The Australian cricket team may be getting all the attention but it’s pharmacists who have made history at the hallowed MCG.
Pharmacy Cricket held its trophy presentation night in the MCG’s famous Long Room. In a night described as being of “historic proportions”, it also managed to score former test cricketer and TV commentator Bill Lowry as a guest speaker
The bumper crowd of 150 dinner guests celebrated as Victorian captain Paul Wickham took home the trophy. His team won the 10th National Carnival, a four-day interstate challenge played in Melbourne in late January.
Pharmacy Cricket was established in 1908 and held an interstate challenge every year until 1934. It was relaunched in April 2000 with a match at Bradman Oval in Bowral.
It has now held the carnival in every Australian state and territory, except Tasmania and the Northern Territory.
