Manly for Manly Patron Support
We are very luck to have 3 fantastic patrons who have provided great support for this program. When contacted, all of them were very excited to be a part of this, and recognised the importance of putting such a program into place:
Mike Baird, NSW Premier
I am very pleased to be associated with MWDCC’s Manly for Manly community program. It once again shows that the club has a true commitment to not only its junior cricketers, but the local Northern Beaches community as a whole.
For me, the club is a community leader and is recognised as such by those that are involved with the club. This program is another example of the club’s valuable contribution to the community.
The Junior Club Association in particular is a great initiative as it enables the senior players to lead and inspire the players of the future.
Jean Hay, Manly Mayor
For more than a century Manly Warringah District Cricket Club has contributer magnificently in establishing our area as a national sporting icon.
But this has only been part of its long term community role. By encouraging young people to play and enjoy cricket while adopting the highest standards of sportsmanship it sets the standards for their personal lives. I know from personal experience that MWDCC members have long recognised that their are many people in our community far less fortunate than they are and give generously to assist many of our worthy charities.
I am honoured to be part of MWDCC's fine Manly for Manly community program.
Michael Regan, Warringah Mayor
It doesn't take a self confessed cricket tragic like myself to recognise the amazing support provided by the Manly Warringah Waratahs to our local junior cricket players and to local organisations such as Stewart House and Happy Days.
They are to be congratulated on the Junior Club Association initiative especially which provides our junior players with an opportunity to learn from the best senior players in the area. The junior coaching clinics at Manly Oval are also events for the kids to savour.
I of course am still waiting to be asked to demonstrate my expertise but until then, congratulations and thank you to all involved in the Manly for Manly program and are ensuring the values and the skills of this great game are instilled at a junior level.
