Support: Your chance to get involved in Pink Stumps Day.

FORMER Australian Test opener Rick McCosker will be in Moree on Saturday.

The celebrity will join Moree Junior Cricket for Pink Stumps Day from 7.30am at Ron Harbourne Oval.

There will be a barbecue breakfast and a chance to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation and Moree’s Palliative Care Unit.

Organisers have set a special competition for anyone willing to face Rick.

If you, by chance, happen to bowl him out a special prize is on offer.

“Every year, throughout summer, we grab a bat, a ball, and wherever we are, we brush off dusty cricket skills to have a go.

“And every year, communities across Australia bring the magic of the Pink Test home by hosting their own Pink Stumps Day,” an organiser said.

The tradition is looked forward to by many in the cricket community.

Everyone is welcome to attend and help raise funds for the cause, be sure to dress in your brightest pink outfits for the event.
