Queensland Cricket Foundation Supports Stan Alberts Shield

Queensland Cricket Foundation has thrown their support behind Team Indigenous Corporation this past season, donating $5,000 to support the Stan Alberts Shield, an Indigenous T20 carnival in Rockhampton.

The carnival boasts 12 teams competing over four divisions. Juniors, Ladies, Masters and a Senior Men’s competition. Queensland Cricket Foundation was able to cover costs for field facilities, preparation of wickets, umpiring and administrative costs for scoring.

Queensland Cricket’s First Nations Project Officer, Kieren Gibbs was in attendance and spoke about the large benefit that the carnival has to the development of Queensland Cricket's programs and pathways.

“Having these grassroots community carnivals really helps us build that indigenous base and players for our state and that feeds us through into our pathways and programs inside Queensland Cricket,” he said.

Queensland Cricket Foundation's development and support of indigenous pathways provides communities with a greater opportunity to participate and play cricket, a key priority within the organisation’s Reconciliation Action Plan.

“The generous offers from organisations and businesses that gave to the Queensland Cricket Foundation and directly to the indigenous pillar gets us out and about and obviously up to these remote areas which get kids, men and women playing cricket,” Gibbs said.

Returning for its ninth carnival this year, the Stan Alberts Shield not only demonstrates the diversity and talent within the state but also continues to develop the future of indigenous cricket and pathways within Queensland cricket.
