It is quickly becoming a ‘must-play’ event on the cricketing calendar. The annual Last Man Stands – Beaudesert Australia Day T10 competition which pits teams into groups of three playing fast-paced Last Man Stands action all for the good of raising funds for charity.

This year was no different, places in the tournament were quickly snapped up… the only difference between this year and previous? This year the Yarrabilba Cane Toads will feature not just one but two sides in this tournament as the Division One LDCA Cane Toads join the ranks of Last Man Stands cricket, albeit for only one day.

Last Man Stands – Beaudesert’s annual T10 competition this year has been sponsored by Snap Fitness Flagstone and will see 12-teams compete in one action packed day of cricket at Glenlogan Park in Jimboomba this Sunday, the winning teams will be crowned in a final under lights.

With the Division One LDCA team joining the ranks of regular Yarrabilba Cane Toads LMS players the teams have been mixed up slightly and entered into the tournament as the Yarrabilba Cane Toads – and the Yarrabilba Outlaws, the ‘Outlaws’ moniker a nod of respect to the bulk of the Cane Toads Division One side who have been drifters in the cricketing community for many seasons and declared themselves ‘Guns for Hire’ before being snapped up by Yarrabilba heading into the 2020/2021 cricketing season.

All money raised from team registrations, raffles, auctions and throughout the day will be donated to the Black Dog Institute, to help assist funding more research into mental illness in particular anxiety and depression of which 1 in 5 Australians are clinically diagnosed with.

“It is something that affects me, many within the club, and many around our community – so it was a no brainer to enter this tournament plus make a $100 contribution to the fundraiser straight away,” Yarrabilba Cricket Association secretary Carla Soltani said.
