Golden Ducks 2011-12


THE GOLDEN DUCKS / PRIMARIES FROM 2011-2012

The Primary (or Golden Duck) theme has always been associated with our fundraising. Our members pay an annual subscription of only $50.00, however, when membership renewal notices are forwarded to them, they are also requested to pay tax deductable ‘fines’ (donations) of $5.00 per primary scored throughout the previous year by Australian players in Test Matches, One Day Internationals or Twenty20 matches.

There have been 18 golden ducks or ‘primaries’ scored by Australian players in international matches in this last 12 months’ Tests and ODI matches.
