REMY BRANDY $3400 1 LITRE 99 sport A $5000 cheque was presented to Otorohanga Cricket Club members last month after local cricketers and their supporters hit an ANZ Bank competition out of the park. The money was presented at the club’s muster on January 31, following club members and support- ers beating 429 other applicants in this season’s ANZ Cricket Grant Scheme funding round. The nationwide scheme is aimed to support New Zealand cricket at a community level, awarding $100,000 worth of equipment or grants to players and teams. Individual players, social, club and school teams were encouraged to post videos on ANZ’s website explaining why they deserved a donation, with public voting deciding the outcome. Otorohanga Cricket Club came out on top as friends, families and residents voted 1529 times for their video. Junior club cricket co-ordinator Lorraine Fox says winning the money has relieved pressure on the club’s junior and senior teams. “We are astounded by the generosity of ANZ and naturally very pleased to win the money.” The club has also received a $1200 donation from former New Zealand cricketer and founder of Sport Waikato John Parker. Otorohanga Lions Club and The Lines Company have also supported the club with a $1000 dona- tion each. All funds will be used to improve the district’s cricket facilities with a purpose-built double prac- tise wicket at the Otorohanga Domain. “The thing is, improving facilities is going to make a real and tangible difference to the kids’ development in terms of practise and their cricket- ing skills, plus it will ease the pressure on current facilities,” says Fox. “I am proud to be an Otorohanga resident when the community we live in always gives uncondi- tional support.” Otorohanga ANZ manager Fiona Denny says the bank launched the programme to help New Zea- landers get the most from the country’s favourite summer game. “The ANZ Cricket Grant Scheme was set up to support players and fans at all levels whether they’re playing competitively or in the backyard with their families. “Otorohanga cricket has experienced huge growth in past couple of years and we were amazed with the commitment to the game shown by the team of volunteers and players.” Kio Kio School was also a lucky recipient of the ANZ Cricket Grant Scheme last year receiving $3600 towards a new practice pitch. oto cricket given $5000 grant THE Te Kuiti seven-a-side summer soccer com- petition grand finalists have been found. After a hard fought night of semi-final clashes at Centennial Park on Tuesday, Plods n Sods will clash with KCK for the championship title next week. But it wasn’t easy for the finalists. Tuesday’s match of the night between KCK and defending champions All Sorts went down to the wire and was eventually drawn 2-2 after regulation time. In a tense penalty shoot-out decider, KCK held their nerve to win 4-3. In the second A-grade semi, Plods n Sods won through to the final with a hard fought 3-1 win over the ever improving Raiders. In the B-grade semi finals TK Glass beat TK Fire 2-1 and Strikly Red won by default. This sets up the B-grade final on field two at 7.15pm between TK Glass and Strikly Red. The play-off for the wooden spoon will be between TK Fire and TKHS on the same field at 6.30pm. Next week’s grand final between KCK v Plods n Sods, which is a repeat of the 2011 final, will be played on field one at 7.15pm. All Sorts and Raiders will play off for third place on the same field at 6.30pm. top teams chosen sports wrap swEEt spot: Otorohanga ANZ Bank representatives present Otorohanga Cricket Club junior co-ordinator Lorraine Fox (second from right) $5000 as part of the ANZ Cricket Grant Scheme.
