Two great rivals to celebrate heritage

TCL club Legana has a big day of cricket planned for when it takes on traditional rival Trevallyn in a heritage-day clash for the Durhams in two weeks time.

The TCL heavyweights have been two of the competition's most successful clubs and will face off in the special game at Legana on Saturday, February 8, starting at noon.

``We are having the heritage day again this year but it is a bigger event than last season,'' Legana president Jason Reed said. 

``We are holding a past players Twenty20 game starting at 9am between Legana and Trevallyn and then the A-grade game. 

``Legana will again be in our heritage tops and there will be the presentation of the Andrew Keegan medal for best player on the ground after the match.''

Reed said the club had also scheduled for Premier Lara Giddings to attend and make an announcement and an invitation had been sent to state Opposition Leader Will Hodgman.

``We feel it is a unique event that was well supported last year and for us is a celebration of history, rivalry and community involvement,'' he said.

`` It is something we hope will continue and ideally I would like to see the league adopt the initiative.

``I guess the thing we really wanted to highlight was the history, success and rivalry of Legana and Trevallyn, which is built on respect. Regardless of where both teams are on the ladder it is always a good contest.'' 

Reed said that the past committees of both clubs have created a positive culture over time, which attracts players to both clubs, meaning neither club needs to pay money to attract quality players.

``Once again we have received significant support from our sponsors and are expecting a great turn out,'' he said.
