Veterans Cricket | Inaugural Over 60s World Cup
Wales Digital Magazine
It is with great pride as Chairman that I introduce the Wales Cricket team to play in the inaugural 60’s world cup in Brisbane.
Wales seniors has had an over 60s cricket team for the past twelve years, since its inception in 2009. It emerged naturally out of the Wales over 50s side, which has now been in existence for almost thirty years. We have also had a Wales 70s team since 2017.
In the past decade Wales Seniors’ Cricket has grown and developed to a remarkable degree – from a relatively small and narrow organisation, having just one over 60s team to the very large and vibrant body it now is, comprising of nearly 100 members and offering cricket opportunities far and wide to veteran enthusiasts. Remarkably, during most weeks of the season, we put out five different teams, all competing against English counties.
We are all excited and proud to be representing Wales in the inaugural 60’s Cricket World cup, and to play against other nations on the International stage is a moment in time that the players, officers and supporters will always cherish and our hope is to do our country proud, both on and off the field.
