Pinjarra Cricket Club hail from the Peel region of Western Australia and was established in 1874. PCC boasts past players who went on to be; 1. Premier of Western Australia 2. Australian Cricket Captain.
With this proud history the club hopes to be as successful on the ground as it's off field reputation, look for some of our members being the last man standing after the tournament functions.
This will be the 4th trip to Thailand to play in Sixes tournaments for the club, although the first time playing in Chiang Mai.
Alex "Eggy" Hegedus
Eggy has been looking forward to this tournament for close on 2 years. Although he is still relatively new to the game he has developed into a very good fielder and has shown some real promise with the bat in his hands.
Eggy loves nothing more than consuming quantities of sponsors product on a hot day, as well as a good pie...or 2.
This is Eggy's 3rd Sixes trip, but first time in Chiang Mai.
As his wife, I thought I would give you a bit of an insight into Morgs the cricketer. I have accompanied Morgs on a number of cricket trips in the past, but this is the first time he's been "released" to attend without me as his cheer squad.
Morgs loves nothing more than to give a ball by ball critique of his bowling and batting. Without me there to nod and say "hmm", he will be needing an ear to bend!
The big fella loves his chilli dishes, the spicier the better and in recent times has become a bit of a beer connoisseur, loving to sample various different ales.
Thankfully, he will be out of the house for the AFL grand final rematch, with us supporting opposing teams. Please give him heaps if his team loses!
Danny "Titch" Turner
Titch has come out of retirement after knee surgery to unleash his ever accurate and probing medium pacers at the Chiang Mai Sixes. But what Titch is most looking forward to is batting, as he missed out on batting during a previous cricket tour. Titch once used a bat with "OOPS" as the brand/stickers, he said it works 2 ways, it's oops if he hits it and it goes to the boundary, or oops if he gets dismissed!
Titch is a connoisseur of all things rum, although sometimes quantity may be more important than quality in his eyes.
This is the second sixes tournament for Titch, but first time in Chiang Mai.
Darryl "Dirky" Morgan
Apparently he has something in common with the character Dirk Diggler from the movie Boogie Nights. Has has also retired more times than John Farnham, our resident wicket keeper batsman loves nothing more than slogging a few shots over the boundary and consuming quantities of sponsors products.
This is Dirky's first overseas cricket trip. we are sure that the Chiang Mai Sixes will just wet his appetite for years to come.
Upali "Pali" Nawarathne
Part of the Pinjarra "Sri Lankan Connection." A wily left arm bowler who boasts figures of 7 wickets for 4 runs in a match in recent times. Upali is also no slouch with the blade and likes to hit the ball HARD.
This is Upali's first overseas trip with the PCC and he is certainly looking forward to the chiang Mai Sixes.
