It is with regret that we advise of the passing of Forster’s David Trudgett.
In later times he has had many hospital admissions, but unfortunately has succumbed to his illness.
His funeral is to be held at Pampoolah Lawn Cemetery on Wednesday 7th August at 11.00 a.m.
Our condolences to his family.

Sporties have again provided the highlight for our Zone at the State Pennant finals. Their grade 7 team reached the semi-final where they were defeated by the narrow margin of 2 shots by Merimbula, who then went on to win the final comfortably.
Results for other grades are as follows:
Grade 2: Forster had three very close games, and may be considered a little unlucky, but a loss by 2, a win by 3, and a loss by 1, had them fail to qualify.
Grade 3: Gloucester won their first game but lost their next two and failed to qualify.
Grade 4: Taree Leagues lost, won and lost, and they were gone.
Grade 5: Buladelah, despite a good win in the first game, they lost the next two narrowly and were eliminated.
Grade 6: Forster won their first two games and despite losing the third, qualified for the quarter finals, where they were defeated by Eugowra.
