Arthur Grevell

Arthur Grevell played for the Club as a wicketkeeper/batsman for ten years from 1968/69 season. Arthur played predominantly in ‘C’ Grade, where he was Captain for 3 years, but he also spent 4 years as the manager/senior player for the South Brisbane Team in Intermediate Grade.

Throughout his career Arthur scored a total of 2085 runs for the club, took 103 catches, effected 18 stumpings and won the Club’s Best and Fairest Trophy in the 1971/72 Season. Arthurs sporting prowess also extended to the golf course where he excelled.

In addition to his contribution as a player, Arthur was a member of the Executive Committee occupying the position of Delegate to QCA and Assistant Treasurer and Assistant Secretary. Arthur was also heavily involved in the Social Committee and with the Junior Committee. His biggest contribution to the club was the Monday night Bingo at the Chard’s Corner Hotel which he ran for 4 years in the late 70’s until being put out of business by the beer strike in 1979. Largely because of Arthur’s work, $50,000 was raised (a considerable amount in the 70’s) which enabled the clubhouse to be built.

Although known as a quiet achiever, Arthur was never afraid to voice his opinions and consequently was always a valuable member of the committee and sub-committee’s.
