“The celebration of volunteers is something we never tire of, and Queensland Cricket will continue to dedicate itself to supporting the grassroots wherever we can,” he said.

“It’s outstanding to see so many regional achievers acknowledged, and we thank them for their unstinting efforts.”

“We are enormously grateful to everyone who volunteers their time at a club or association or committee. Their commitment enables boys and girls and men and women to enjoy the game and ensure quality experiences for all involved.”
