HAY PARK CRICKET CLUB
Graham Harradine has been a long standing member of the Hay Park Cricket Club and the Bunbury District Cricket Association.
Graham has undertaken roles both within the Hay Park Cricket Club and the Bunbury District Cricket Association ranging from playing, administration,sponsor and curator.
Graham has played a leading role in both the on and off-field management of the Hay Park Cricket Club including Club Major Sponsor, Treasurer and Head Groundsman. This contribution has seen Graham invest thousands of hours of time personal time in ensuring that the club is both operationally and financially stable and a leader in the Bunbury District Cricket Association which has been reflected in the club chasing a three peat of success in the Bunbury District Cricket Association.
His contribution to the broader association has included taking on roles both on the Bunbury District Cricket Association Executive Committee and contributions as an Association Sponsor and Team Manager across both Senior and Junior Representative Teams.
Graham has in recent years also enjoyed the success of his son Jim representing the club to a high level and in 2015 returning to the field himself after 30 odd years away from the game
Whilst the contribution is not measurable on a financial level the regard that Graham is held by both club and association has seen his nomination and admission to the Hay Park Cricket Club as both a Life Member 2015 and Club Patron in 2016.
As a person Graham is not an individual who seeks personal acknowledgement for the contributions made, and as grassroots sporting clubs opportunities like these provide the opportunity and foundation to acknowledge the contributions of the heart and soul of our clubs.
