FROM THE NEWSPAPERS - 1928 - Yallourn Wins the Yallourn & District Cricket Association Grand Final

90 YEARS AGO - 1928
YALLOURN WINS THE YDCA GRAND-FINAL

This newspaper item consisted of nothing more than the scores from the 1927-28 Yallourn and District Cricket Association Grand Final between Yallourn and Mirboo North which was played at Moe on the 22nd April 1928.

Despite Yallourn’s exciting 13-run victory, the scores were tucked away beneath a report related to the sales at the Melbourne Pig Market.

Unfortunately, there were no other details of the match provided; and, hopefully, the associated footnotes may shed some light on the fledgling Yallourn and District Cricket Association and some of the notable players of that era.
Note: The batting and bowling gridlines, as seen below, were not part of the original extract and have been added to assist the presentation of the scores on the website.
