Ponting to join luminaries

CRICKET legend Ricky Ponting will speak at the annual Brocklesby- Burrumbuttock luncheon at Albury’s Commercial Club on Friday.

The former Australian captain, who played 168 Test matches, has been lured as the guest speaker for the Border’s premier sporting luncheon.

The lunch, now in its 26th year, has attracted some of the nation’s most recognisable names.

Shane Warne, Wally Lewis and Wayne Carey are just a handful of Australia’s biggest sporting identities to speak at the event, with business mogul Lindsay Fox last year’s guest speaker.

The lunch starts at 12.30pm, with all tickets snapped up already.
