Reigning cricket champions Gunnedah cops will once again battle it out with Gunnedah firies on April 28.
Gunnedah Fire and Rescue and Gunnedah Police will take to the cricket pitch for a 30-over Pink Stumps match to raise funds for the McGrath Foundation.
Fire and Rescue's new recruit Monica Bentham said the challenge was laid down after she made a cheeky remark.
"I was just being a smart alec at a job and was talking about how firies are clearly better cricketers than the police," Ms Bentham said.
"We decided to make it a charity event so it wasn't just for bragging rights."
Leading senior constable Damian Wood said the police were hoping to retain their winning title after beating the firies in 2015.
"We won last time, so I think there's a bit of feeling behind this one, they want a bit of revenge," Mr Wood said.
It’s another way our first responders in the community can give back and help raise some funds for a great organisation.Fire and Rescue's Monica Bentham
Mr Wood said they would also be issuing "fines" throughout the day to raise more money for the foundation.
"If you drop a catch, that's $2, if you do something stupid or get out for a duck it's a $2 fine or $5 fine or whatever it is just to raise more money and to make it more fun for everyone," he said.
"We're also going to be selling 10 Glenn McGrath hats and 10 pink bandannas to raise more money."
A barbecue and cold drinks will be available, provided by the NSW Police Association. There will also be a raffle with donated prizes from local businesses.
All locals are welcome to attend the game at Donnelly Playing Fields on Saturday, April 28 at 11.30am.
