Shades of Bob Simpson

In the 1978-79 cricket season Bob Simpson was brought back from ten years in retirement, and in the hour of need led our country after virtually the whole Australian Cricket team had defected to World Series Cricket. On hearing that our great club had to forfeit our once powerful C Grade in Round One former player and now generous sponsor Scott Cowden declared his availability to play two day cricket in a bid to swell our playing stocks. A huge effort after being out of the game for ten years and putting his once proud playing reputation on the line for the sake of our club. Although failing with the bat at his first attempt at the crease we all know with his love and positive attitude to his batting that things will improve rapidly. Taking two catches and two wickets with his medium pacers were highlights. Well done Scott!!
