In 2015 2YYY will again call Cherrypickers rugby league games

cherrypickersThe 2015 Group Nine rugby league season kicks off on the 11th April 2015. 2yyy will again be calling all the home and away games following our very popular and successful inaugural 2014 calls.

Young’s first game is on Sunday 12th April at Alfred Oval against Tumbarumba and we are hoping that Young can start the year with a win to kick start the season. On discussions with Luke Branighan who is again the first grade captain-coach it is anticipated that Young will continue on from their efforts from last seasons making the top four and just being eliminated from the semi finals.

Through natural attrition some players have moved on including Jack Hetherington who is currently playing for the Roosters in the NRL. A number of  new signings have joined the club with more on their way. Final arrangements for these players are still not completed due to the fact that they are from overseas.

The Cherrypickers will again field all five grades this year being First Grade, Reserve Grade, League Tag, Under 18 and Under 16 teams.

Our calls will start at around 2pm on each game day and will continue till after the first grade. We start with all the results of the previous games as well as all the Group Nine games results tables and  other news. Our experts will also preview the game and decide on the man of the match.

Our team will again consist of our young gun caller Harry Scorse. Our team of experts will include Steve Woolford, Stuart Norton, Ray Spring , Nick Hall and others. We will have at times many more local rugby league identities throughout the season.

So tune in  to 92.3 FM 2yyy every game during the 2015 Cherrypickers season for a great call of local league.

2YYY Raises over $600 at The Big Aussie BBQ

On Saturday September 27th some of the 2YYY Community Radio volunteers, led by head Organizer Patrick Watkin held a Big Aussie BBQ in the IGA Car park Young and with a steady stream of people attending through the morning managed to raise over $600 for Prostate cancer Research .

Over 120,000 men in Australia are living with prostate cancer and 20,000 more are diagnosed annually. Every year, 3,300 of those men don’t survive.

Prostate cancer kills more men than breast cancer kills women, but awareness of the disease and its funding are tiny by comparison.

Now in its fifth year, the Big Aussie Barbie is a chance for communities to do something positive for men’s health

Hosting a fundraising Barbie during September was a great way for 2YYY Volunteers to catch up with friends and supporters.

A big thank you goes out to Donges Super IGA, Milne’s Country Meats, Grey Cat Enterprises, Bakers Delight, and Woolies for all the food donations to make the morning a success.

Big Aussie barbies were held across the nation, raising money for prostate cancer research, awareness and support programs.
