Community Recognition Statement

Mr ANOULACK CHANTHIVONG (Macquarie Fields) [1.27 p.m.]: I speak today about the Campbelltown-Camden District Cricket Club. Recently I had the privilege of attending its 30-year celebrations with my good friend and colleague the member for Campbelltown. The club was established in 1985-86. It is an elite cricket club which has as its sole aim the promotion of local talented juniors. Its home ground is in the heart of my electorate, at Raby, where I grew up, so I have seen many changes to the facilities at the ground, which have been the result of contributions from the cricket club, the community and local and State government funding. I take this opportunity to acknowledge a particularly talented youngster by the name of Luke Courtney, who has been recently selected to represent the New South Wales Combined High Schools Cricket Team. He is on his way to represent the State in the United Kingdom. I wish him and his team well and I pay tribute to his parents, Janelle and Mark.
