See the Aussies play on the foreshores

IF YOU can't get to the SCG on Sunday to see the One Day International between Australia and England, heading to Park Beach Reserve could be almost as good as being there.

An outdoor live site is being prepared at Park Beach where cricket fans can head down and watch the game on the big screen that's being set up thanks to Carlton Mid.

You can watch the cricket while you enjoy a beer in the Carlton Mid Beer Garden, have a hit with the local cricket clubs in the Cricket Australia Family Zone and roll your arm over for a shot at winning up to $2500 with fast bowling legend, Merv Hughes at the Carlton Mid Stumps Challenge.

"To all my Coffs Harbour friends, bring down a chair, set up a picnic rug and join me to watch the cricket and soak up the atmosphere at the Ultimate One Dayer Live Site," Hughes said.

"I'll be down there, mo and all, looking for some challengers to throw the stumps down.

"Bragging rights and a bit of cash are to be won too."

With Carlton Mid sponsoring the ODIs for the first time, CUB general manager of marketing Andrew Meldrum said he's excited for the chance to make Australian cricket even better and more enjoyable to watch.

"You don't have to be at the SCG to feel the atmosphere of watching the cricket live," Meldrum said.

"We'd love anyone in the Coffs Harbour area to come down, say g'day to Merv, have a go at the Carlton Mid Stumps Challenge and most importantly - watch the Aussies thump the Poms."
