Glenn McGrath Statue
Do you know about Narromine’s Glenn McGrath story?
On Saturday 6 June 2009, Narromine celebrated the unveiling of the Glenn McGrath bronze statue situated in Tom Perry Park on the Mitchell Highway. The statue is the work of local artist Brett Garling.
Here is the story - Glenn Donald McGrath, AM, was born on 9 February 1970 in Dubbo to Kevin and Beverly McGrath. He was nicknamed “Pigeon” and he was educated at Narromine Public School. As a youngster he used to bowl at a fuel drum that sat against his dad’s machinery shed in Narromine to improve his accuracy.
Glenn is a former Australian cricket player and a leading contributor to Australia’s domination of world cricket from the mid-1990s to the early twenty-first century. He holds the world record for the highest number of Test wickets by a fast bowler and is fourth on the all-time list.
