Statistics don’t always tell the full story but they go a long way in determining the performance of cricketers in terms of their playing record, their consistency, their dedication and their commitment to the club and to their teams.  Statistics also provide a measure of incentive for players to achieve certain goals and milestones. They also create a great level of interest for followers of the game and of the club.

Life Member and former CEO Ray Stafford has spent countless hours in putting together a complete list of all statistics for all players in all grades since Randwick Petersham started in 2001. This has given us an opportunity to identify a number of milestones and to raise a number of targets which otherwise would never have been possible.

With those points in mind, there are certain milestones which could be achieved by a number of players this season.

The following is a list of prospective milestones for current players prior to round 1 of this season (26th September) which are sure to be followed with interest as the summer rolls on.
