Players from six South West Football League clubs will swap their footy boots for cricket spikes this Saturday – all in the name of charity.

Representatives from South Bunbury, Bunbury, Donnybrook, Carey Park, Harvey-Brunswick-Leschenault and the Eaton Boomers will play in three exhibition cricket matches at Forrest Park to raise money for children’s charity Camp Quality.

The traditional derby between the Tigers and Bulldogs is sure to get the competitive juices flowing, while the Dons will battle the Panthers and the Lions will take on the Boomers.

Camp Quality’s Team Kombi representative Darren Kenny said he was delighted the sporting clubs were raising money for a good cause.

“It is great that two of the main sporting codes in the region are coming together to support a good cause,” he said.

“They wanted to raise a few funds for Camp Quality.

“I think it will be a good day all round to support two sporting codes as well as a good cause.”

Mr Kenny encouraged fans of the six teams to come down and watch the games, with a variety of senior players and “legends” taking to the grounds for the big games.
