Cricketing legend Brad Hodge will go in to bat for Newstead Cricket Club this weekend.
Hodge will don the baggy yellow this Sunday at the Newstead Recreation Reserve in a one off appearance for the Kangaroos.
There was a batting auction to open alongside Hodge and all funds raised via the auction, paid entry to the game and the Q&A session with Hodge afterwards will go to helping the Newstead Cricket Club refurbish the local primary school’s oval and 50-year-old cricket pitch.
The game starts at 12 pm this Sunday with a gold coin donation for entry.
