Jeff Thomson Makes an Appearance at End of an Era Auction

Worlds Fastest Bowler Jeff Thomson will be making a special local appearance at the inspections for Normans Farming Equipment Sale on Tuesday March 5, in what will be the end of an era of farming for the family.

“I look forward to heading out near Goondiwindi to have a look at some equipment and have a chinwag and some lunch with the locals,” said Mr. Jeff Thomson.

In the same week of the cricket finals in Goondiwindi, Jeff Thomson will be appearing at the inspection day on Tuesday March 5 at the Normans farming property where all of his farming equipment will be going to auction mostly unreserved on Wednesday March 6.

“The amount of equipment and the quality of the items in the auction is definitely worth heading out for a look to see the scope of the auction and the farm in which they have been working on not so long ago,” continued Mr. Jeff Thomson.

“After over 160 years of farming we are sad to come to the end of an era but it was the right decision and we do look forward to a fitting farewell lunch with 160km/hr bowler Jeff Thomson on Tuesday the day before the auction,” said a family representative.

With much popularity with local folk in the area Jeff is expected to draw much attention to the site where all the equipment is being held for inspection.

“I wouldn’t say no to a sausage sizzle and a good chat with mates about some vehicles and equipment, I also enjoy the quiet drive out to the country” Jeff continued.

“There are millions of dollars’ worth of equipment in this auction and the equipment is unprecedented in quality, perfect for people looking at purchasing agricultural or heavy equipment for their farms,” said Mr. Glenn Screech – Head of Agricultural Sales for Lloyds Auctions.
