Mick came to the club in 1988 as a player. An outstanding statistic for Mick’s playing career is that he did not miss one game for Souths. Mick played most of his cricket in third grade, winning many bowling awards. He also captained 4th grade undertaking the demanding role of captain of the development team. In 15 years, Mick took 424 wickets at 16.02 in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grade. He scored 1168 runs at 16.69.

Mick was always determined to be part of the Management team of Souths and became President in 1988. Mick is responsible for many developments at the club, including the renovation of the old club house (pre-2011 flood).

Mick was always driven to achieve for the club and spent an uncountable amount of hours in service of the club. His many visions were realised by the magnificent facilities we have today. He continues to be seen around the club watching his boys play cricket and has a strong interest in the Yeronga AFL club also.
