Errold La Frantz and his mate Cec Anstey were the driving force behind Toombul District Cricket Club. These two were always present at the various delegate meetings and held in very high esteem by their peers in the Queensland cricket fraternity. On 30 August 1972, Errold was at the inaugural meeting which formed the Junior Cricket competition in North Brisbane. During the 1973/74 season the Brisbane Junior Cricket Association and the Queensland Junior Cricket Association were formed. He was awarded an MBE in 1977 for services to cricket and he has Life membership of Queensland Cricket and Toombul District Cricket Club. He was the recipient of the Australian Sports Medal in 2000 and he received Life membership of Brisbane North Junior Cricket Association in 2001.

 

Errold’s contribution to cricket has been immense, but his greatest legacy is the generations of young cricketers that now play the game.
