Football Far North Coast is delighted to share news that former Australian Women’s Cricket Captain (and current FFNC director) Lyn Larsen, was recognised with a Queens Birthday Award when the awards were announced yesterday.

Lyn’s status in the game of cricket is significant and our local community can be rightfully proud of Lyn’s achievements and of her outstanding contribution to the game of cricket and to sport more broadly.

Football Far North Coast is very fortunate to have a director of the calibre, vision and with international connections, that Lyn has, but most notably, is someone who retains genuine country values and who has an innate capacity to grasp the relevance and needs of sport at grassroots level.

Congratulations to Lyn for being recognised with this award and for the legacy that she has given to cricket.

We are very fortunate that Lyn continues to have a preparedness to give of her limited time amid many demands and to use her experience to help support a spirit of progress for football in this region.

Well deserved to Lyn Larsen on receiving an AM (Member of the Order of Australia) for services to cricket.
