Uni Old Boys.
The Uni Old Boys have a long history of playing cricket long after weary legs have stopped their Saturday rituals of running around the lush grounds of St Lucia. In the 1980s and 1990s the Uni Old Boys would play home and away matches against the I Zingari from Warwick and the Antiquarians from the Sunshine Coast. UQCC would also regularly enter a team in Golden Oldies tournaments, which included visits to South Africa, Canada and New Zealand. UQCC also enter teams into Queensland Crickets two new competitions, Over 40s and the Legends Twenty20.
The major off-field event for the Old Boys and the Club is the annual Test Breakfast. Held every year since 2001, the Test Breakfast is the Club’s biggest fundraiser. It also is a chance for the Club’s Old Boys and supporters to catch up and reminisce about many Saturdays spent at St Lucia. Guest speakers have included Kerry O’Keeffe, Jeremy Coney, Alan Lamb, Greg Chappell, Phil Tufnell, Michael Kasprowicz and Jonathan Agnew.
