Kevin Balson Kevin Balson has passed away after a short battle with cancer aged 81. Kevin was instrumental in the founding of our Club in 1959 and was the Club's first President and Captain.

As the first captain, Kevin was assigned the Club Number 1 and he lead the Club to its first Premership in 1959/60. Kevin was a gifted allround cricketer who played 43 games for the Club averaging 25.72 with the bat (h.s. 90) and 16.21 with the ball (best 5/23). Kevin also won the 1961/62 batting average. Kevin's son Ross played juniors with the Club in the mid-70's. Our thoughts are with Kevins family at this difficult time.
