2016 VTCA Cricket Award for Glenn (Scatters) Scarborough

 

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: http://www.vtca.asn.au/files/1/images/vtca_logo.gif

At the recent annual general meeting of the Victorian Turf Cricket Association, Scatters was awarded Life Membership for services to the competition through his Sunday night program the North West Amateur Cricket Report. Believe it or not he was rendered speechless and close to tears. He became Life Member No. 40 of an association that has been running for 114 years. Congratulations and well done.  

Scatters said “A very very humbling experience which has made me extremely proud. I am the only person to be honoured with this award that has not served on the competition executive.

Awards like this are not the reason I do what I do but they are exciting and humbling to receive. I also realise that I do not have a show without the regular participants and I am also extremely grateful to North West FM for the opportunity I have been given to broadcast”.

The North West Amateur Cricket Report airs on Sundays 6 pm - 9 pm.
