MORE than 40 of the Kookaburras Cricket Club's favourite sons have converged on the Imperial Hotel to reflect on their playing days, at the club's annual reunion.
Marking the 20th anniversary of the club's 1999 first-grade premiership, players from a number of different generations came together to join in the celebration.
Club president Dave Partridge said it was tremendous to see so many players get together.
"We had about 50 guys there: a lot of current players but plenty of guys from the good old days as well," Partridge said.
"Blokes like Frank Foster, who were around when the club was formed in the early 1980s, were there as well.
"Honestly, it was a really great function kindly hosted by our new sponsors."
Partridge said the club's decision to open the function to all past players was a wise one.
"Initially we had planned on just making it a reunion of the '99 premiership," he said.
"But then we decided to open it up to everyone and I'm really glad we did because it created a great atmosphere.
"We all had a nice meal, some drinks and overall a really great time."
Looking to retain their 2018-19 premiership, Kookaburras will again rely on some of their 1999 stars in the form of Shayne Riordan and Pat Paul.
"We will have a good blend of youth and experience again this summer," Partridge said.
"So far we have had good numbers at training and, hopefully, we can repeat the effort of '99 by winning the premiership again this year."
