The Lord's Taverners of Victoria recently confirmed what everyone in Dandenong already knew; Cathryn Fitzpatrick is a Legend.
Each year the Lord Taverners - whose mantra is "Giving the young and disadvantaged a sporting chance" - inducts a number of people who have made extraordinary contributions to the game as "Legends of Victorian Cricket". And so, it was with great pleasure that the DCC accepted an invitation to attend the presentation dinner in support the induction of our very own Fitz.
Fitz was inducted alongside Shaun Graf and Shane Warne and was presented the honour by former Cricket Victoria CEO and now Lord's Taverners of Victoria President, Tony Dodemaide.
Also awarded on the night were three awards for stand out junior cricketers (Male, Female and the Betty Butcher memorial award) and we congratulate another Dandenong representative in Nicole Faltum on receiving the Female Junior Cricketer award.
It is always fantastic to see members of the Panther family being recognized for their achievements, especially before the season has even started! So congratulations once again Fitz and Nic on your well deserved recognition and if you know of any Panthers with achievements that we may not have hear about, please let us know!
