Time out for Tummon from family and work to play Twenty20
FOR three weeks a year, family man Terry Tummon gets his cricket fix.
The former Brothers A-grade cricketer retired after playing a small role during the 2012-13 Frenchville Sports Club A-grade premiership season, but spectators at Victoria Park and Judds Park on Sunday must be questioning why.
Playing alongside a handful of mates and Brothers Rugby Union Club players, Tummon starred for Honey Badgers in their two Twenty20 Corporate Challenge wins.
His performances helped the team secure fourth heading into this weekend's final round.
Along with a couple wickets, Tummon amassed a combined 174 runs in the Honey Badgers' two wins, top scoring with 65 in his side's four-run win over Ambulance on Sunday morning.
However, it was his knock in the Honey Badgers' 30-run win over the Capras on Saturday afternoon that was the standout.
Batting at number three, Tummon combined with Cameron Imrie to steer Honey Badgers to their match-winning total of 232.
While Imrie was left just shy of a century on 97 not out, Tummon finished the innings unbeaten on 109.
"A couple of us got lucky," the modest Tummon said of the performance.
While Brothers A-grade captain Richie Pershouse could do with his services, Tummon said the Twenty20 corporate competition was an exception.
"I just don't have the time anymore with work and three young kids," said Tummon, who has two daughters, Olivia, 4, Alyssa, 2, and a son, Nicholas, seven months.
"That's why this competition is so good because you can get out and play as it's only three weekends a year and not a full season."
Hawks remain the only undefeated team and have qualified for the final next Sunday night.
The second finalists will be decided between reigning Corporate championships Back on Track Eagles and Hospital which play each other in the final round match on Sunday.
The winner meets the Hawks in the grand final at Rockhampton Cricket Grounds on January 19.
