WCC and Movember

For the past 4 years, Warringah Cricket Club has had a proud history of supporting the Movember Campaign, raising awareness around Men's Health, especially in the fields of Prostate Cancer Research and Mental Health. Warringah Cricket Club is proud of its record in raising over $30,000 over 4 years to the Movember Campaign.


We are particularly proud of our Movember Fundraisers last year (clockwise from Top Left):

  • Brett Curry - Vice President and 2nd Grade Batsman
  • Simon Crombie - Secretary and Champion Sire
  • Billy Lloyd-Green - 3rd Grade Captain and a craft Bat
  • Nick Burrows - 2nd Grade Captain and the most damaging Keeper/Batsman in Shires
  • Tristan Rajah - Club Captain and Swashbuckling 2nd Grade Batsman
  • Ben Pace - Pathway Administrator and Crafty Leggy
  • Craig Rupert - Destructive 1st Grade Batsman
  • Ross Denny - Pathway Manager and Life Member of MWJCA
  • Doug McGrath - Tim Creer Cup Captain, Inspirational Leader and all-round Good Guy
  • Lenny Jones - 2nd Grade Fast Bowler and owner of 'Luigi complex'
  • Daniel McKenna - 2nd Grade Opening Bowler and Chick Magnet

This community campaign hits close to home for the Men in Green as one of our own, Former Manly 1st Grade Player and Warringah CC Coach David Gainsford is a survivor of Prostate Cancer and has been the Movember Ambassador for both WCC and MWDCC for the last 4 years. This helped inspire both clubs to really take charge in raising money and awareness for the Movember Campaign and it has proved a massive success, with Warringah coming 1st in the Sydney Cricket Association Movember Campaign Competition 4 years in a row. Further to that, we have seen Warringah and Manly-Warringah complete a 1-3 in 2013-14 and a 1-2 in 2014-15, with over $10,000 raised between the two clubs, an outstanding achievement.

We all know how powerful the Mo really is in the world of cricket (Take Boonie, DK Lillee, Allan Border and, more recently, Mitchell Johnson). So make sure you get behind the power of the Mo with WCC as we continue to help the fight against Mental Health and Prostate Cancer.
