SANFL Players who have played state/district cricket

Postby Squawk » Fri Aug 10, 2007 10:04 pm

Does Spelly have a list for SANFL players who have played state or A Grade district cricket (or a similar level eg U/19s for Australia)?

Off the top of my head, the likes of Craig Bradley (definitely I'm sure); Matthew Bode and Nathan Bassett were more than handy with a cricket bat. I know there are others who just escape my thinking at present but would love to see "the list".

KG umpired SANFL and played for the State cricket team.

Can anyone else help out?

Jamie Mcphee was in the paper today in relation to a business merger, hes one.

James Pyke.

I think Barrie Robran did, maybe Lindsay Head as well.

A lot of others, who will no doubt be added on here.

I didn't realise David Marshall played cricket at a reasonable level Tassie, presumably was in the early 80's (in his earlier days before he concentrated on footy).

Lindsay Head & Barrie Robran both played cricket for SA.
In the early 1900's Clem Hill & Jack "Dinny" Reedman played cricket for SA and Australia and football for South Adelaide.
Simon Goodwin played for the Aust u19's cricket team as well.

I think Shannon Hurn might have had representative honors in cricket as a junior as well before concentrating on footy.

Captained SA under 15's Cricket and Footy in the same year and certainly played at least 1 season of A grade district cricket, but am unsure of where his cricket took him after that.

SACA gave him a rookie contract to entice him to stay with cricket, he accepted it for one season then promptly chose footy

1990 - played his one and only league game against South at Adelaide Oval when D. Jarman kicked 9 on a really wet day.
