Harry Evans calls it a day…for now

I have been dreading writing this tribute to Harry Evans after he announced his retirement last Saturday from playing with the Gordon District Cricket Club. Dreading it really only because I could no longer sit at Chatswood Oval and watch one of the best batsmen to ever play on our sacred ground. That�s is a…

Five Out of Six is Pretty Handy

A good weekend for the Stags as Seconds to Colts all have strong wins, including two outrights. First Grade couldn’t quite make the vital breakthroughs in their game, but the lower grades performed very well. Second Grade and Fifth Grade both completed outright victories on the back of good bowling and excellent run chases by…

Bowlers Revenge against the Ghosts

A good day’s work by most teams. Unlike last week, in most games the ball dominated the bat with Jackson Saggers (2nds), Dan Stickland (3rds) and Dave Monaghan (5ths) all taking five wickets. The highlight of the day though, was undoubtedly in 4th Grade. At 6-45, you’re probably not thinking you’ll be able to declare…

It’s a Batsman’s Game

“It’s a Batsman’s Game!” the bowlers shout. Well, from the looks of the weekend, just around now they may have a point. Lots of runs while wickets were certainly hard to come by. A satisfactory day for the Stags, with three wins, two draws and a loss. Some great scores, particularly from Jamie Bekis (165*)…

The site has many features which you can find through an easy navigation. There is also a lot of information on the…

Gordon PG’s have big win over Mosman

This was an absolutely outstanding win with a bonus point and followed on from our big victory last week against the strong Manly side. We are now outright leaders in the Sixers conference. Our bowling again today was excellent and I must admit I am totally biased, however how good is it to again witness…

Fun in the sun against the Randy-Petes

There are some great batting wickets around Sydney at the moment and several Gordon teams were able to post good scores in their two-day games against Randwick-Petersham. In the other games, our bowlers all did a good job too. In First Grade, five batsmen reached 40 but none passed 70 as a solid score was…

This week in history of GDCC

The Charlie Macartney Scoreboard – October 15, 1938 The scoreboard in the south-eastern corner of Chatswood Oval, was erected by Willoughby Council in 1938 only a few years after Charlie Macartney retired.  A plaque with the following inscription is attached to the front of it. THIS TABLET IS ERECTED IN RECOGNITION OF THE OUTSTANDING RECORD…

Just a Lousy Day!

Rain wrecked five of the six games on Saturday. Thirds were able to play for long enough to win but all the other games were washed out, some with Gordon in a good position, and some perhaps fortuitously. 1st Grade The Firsts declared at their over the week score. However, after a couple of overs…
