Last year a cricket honours board was crafted in the tech department by now departed teacher Peter Ingram
Mark Wales has tried in vain to find information by scouring through the year books for students of the College that could be recognised on this honours board
He has detailed information from 2004 onwards but before that there is no hard evidence about players who scored 100s or took 6 wicket bags
The criteria for the honours board is this
1. A player representing the College First XI must score 100 runs at least in a MENs grade cricket match. This could be Premier, Seniors, Second Grade or the highest mens competition that team competed in for their time at College (presently the First XI plays in the Premier Mens Cricket Grade)
N.B. This player could be an adult player (as many coaches have also played in the First XI in the mens grade competition)
2. A player representing the College First XI must score 100 runs at least in a Traditional College Fixture.
N.B. This could be in Gillette Cup, Traditional Fixtures, tournaments attended, or played against visiting teams to Taranaki
3. A player representing the College First XI must take at least 6 wickets in a either a mens grade competition match or in a traditional college fixture
N.B. Please read above for finer points regarding fixtures
If anyone has information pertaining to this please submit it to the Old Boys Blog or contact Mark Wales (Director of Sport) 021 584 336 - scorebooks and specific evidence isn't needed but honesty calls must be made
If there is evidence out there (i.e. old score books etc) please send them in or scan them so they can be added to the archives
