Advertiser Cricket League teams

I thought this might be a fitting week to share these pictures from the Advertiser Cricket League in the mid 1990s. In our sports section of this week’s paper (January 31 edition) you’ll see that Old Laurentians have been raising money for the air ambulance in memory of Dom Marsella, who died three years ago. He is included in this top picture of the OLs cricket team, who used to enjoy our Tuesday evening friendly league.
