The HISTORY of the IAN HEALY CUP
The U-12 Development Carnival (Ian Healy Cup) is Conducted by BNJCA in January of each year.
The event seems to have become a significant event on the calendar for a number of associations.
In 1999 the then BNJCA Director of Coaching, Kenneth Hunt, felt that there should be cricket
available in Brisbane of a higher standard than that played on Saturdays. He therefore
suggested an annual carnival for players just below the standard of players selected to attend
Ian Healy was consulted and approved his name to be used for an U-12 Development Carnival
to take place annually and for an Ian Healy Cup Perpetual Trophy to be awarded to the winning
Hosting of the Carnival from 1999 has been undertaken by the Albany Creek Cricket Club at their
grounds at Brendale with the Bald Hills-Lawnton Lions Club becoming involved in 2009 with
provision of a ground and supply of lunches at Canterbury Park, Bald Hills. It has now reverted
back to just ACCC hosting the carnival.
In 1999 only Brisbane North teams were involved. Subsequently BEARS, Metropolitan South West,
Beaudesert, Beenleigh-Logan and Sunshine Coast became involved. BEARS have sent separate
teams from Redlands and Eastern Districts and teams have attended from Sunshine Coast, Gold Coast, Ipswich and Cricket Far North.
