Greg Wright

In his career with the club, which to that point had spanned some 23 seasons, Greg had represented the club in all Grades from Under 15’s up to First Grade and along the way had scored 4536 runs and taken 551 wickets and held 68 catches.

In First Grade matches for the club, Greg took 166 wickets at 20.42 and in his day was rated as one of the quickest bowlers in the First Grade competition and renowned for his fire and bounce.

An indication of Greg’s commitment to the club is the fact that following his illustrious First Grade career, he continued to represent the club in lower grades thereby providing the much needed experience and mentoring in the lower grades.

During the 82/83 season, his batting talents were displayed when he scored 2 centuries for the club in consecutive matches and took out the QCA batting average for 2nd grade. Greg scored a 3rd century in 83/84 and As Captain of 2nd grade in 84/85 Greg took the club to a semi-final only to be washed out.

Greg shared with Rod Ludwig the Club record for an 8th wicket partnership with a stand of 142 against Valleys in 2nd grade in 78/79 which was surpassed in 89/90 by Messrs Stafford and O’Keffe with a stand of 182*.
