Record-Busting Batters

Club historian Lyall Gardner has confirmed a long-standing record was wiped from the books when Matt Calder and Matt Everett combined for a massive fourth wicket stand in the second-grade game against Penrith at Petersham Oval. In his maiden century for the club, Calder made 133 from 155 balls and figured in a partnership of 206 with Everett, whose 116 was crafted from 194 deliveries. The double Matt attack surpassed the club’s previous best fourth wicket partnership of 197 – set in first grade in 2003-04 by Paul Toole and Joseph Hill. Further to Calder’s memorable outing, his first 50 runs were achieved without him having to leave his crease. He hit five fours and five sixes to bring up his half century off just 23 rocks.
