Wide Brimmed Hats Have Arrived!
The club is pleased to announce that wide brimmed hats embroidered with the clubs logo are now being distributed to financial players.
The club would like to acknowledge the support of the City of Canning, who provided the club with a grant to fund the purchase of the hats. Like all clubs, we have the occasional ‘moment’ with the council, but we cannot fault the support they provide to community groups within the city via a diverse range of grant opportunities.
The damage the sun can do is well known, therefore the club is keen for all our players to have the gear they need to reduce exposure to the sun whilst playing cricket.
Thanks again to the City of Canning for their financial support. We would also like to acknowledge the grants officers within the council who have always been so supportive and knowledgeable when progressing grant requests.

RPL Charity Fundraising Day
On Sunday, 25th November the club held the second edition of the Riverton Premier League, which also doubles as a fundraising day for charity. This year, two teams played out a thrilling 20/20 cricket game which was decided with the second last ball of the day.
The annual windup was held on Friday, 6th April 2018 at the Victoria Park Hotel.
Congratulations go out to Matthew Koenig who claimed the AF Newman Medal for best player in the First XI, as voted by the umpires. Matt pipped Darren Marijanich in the last game of the season to claim his first AF Newman Medal.
CHARITY FUNDRAISING DAY A SUCCESS
