Founded in 1905, the Gordon District Cricket Club has a proud history.
Since then, the men’s club has participated in Sydney’s premier grade cricket competitions. During this period the club has won the club championship four times, the first-grade premiership on six occasions and many, many lower grade premierships. As well as playing successes, Gordon has produced a long list of representative players – including 19 Australian Test representatives and over 40 NSW players.
Amongst these are some of the greatest names in Australian cricket – Charlie McCartney, Victor Trumper, Bert Oldfield, Neil Harvey and Brian Taber. Gordon’s record of producing first class cricketers has continued throughout more recent eras – names like Adam Gilchrist, Phil Emery and Matthew Nicholson all began their grade cricket careers at Gordon. The Stags continue to attract many talented young cricketers. This was highlighted in the 2020-21 season when our Poidevin-Grey Shield (U21) team were joint premiers.
The club maintains a very strong culture which includes having 52 players going to the First World War and 68 to the Second World War. We are fortunate to have maintained many records of these true heroes.
