Australia Day Honour for Keith Irvine

General Interest | Mon 30-Jan-2017 3:06pm

It is with pride that we announce that among the 2017 Australia Day Honours, an OAM (Order of Australia Medal) has been awarded to Keith Irvine for service to community health and to social welfare organisations.

This is a well earned recognition to Keith and a first for the Cougar family. Keith came to the Club in 1978/9 after a great career with High St Rd and played with us for 6 seasons, taking 84 wickets and making 950 runs.

He was Treasurer for 3 seasons and introduced his sons Gary and Denis to us as Juniors, both making valuable contributions to the Club.

On behalf of all Cougars players, past and present, we congratulate Keith on this wonderful recognition.
