History Pre-Merger


Wolston Park Cricket Club

 

The Wolston Park Cricket Club was born upon the completion of the field in 1909. The club (formerly known as the Goodna Cricket Club) has played in the Brisbane A Grade (1914-1920) and the Ipswich & West Moreton competitions. Furthermore the club became quite accomplished and a force to be reckoned with in the Queensland Cricket Association. In fact, on one occasion the MCC touring side played a hospital side on the oval. The match was a personal triumph for Dr Ellerton.

In recent years the club has enjoyed incredible success. The Wolston Park Cricket Club winter side, captained by life member Greg White had great success in the A1 Warehouse Competition. This strong team won six A1 premierships in nine years: 1991, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, and 1999.

The most recent history of the Wolston Park Cricket Club summer team came about through the availability of Rosewood Colts Cricket Club players in 1995/96 and they duly won the 1995/96, 1997/98, 1999/2000, 2000/01, 2001/02 & 2003/04 Churches State Shield Competition and were runners up in 1996/97 and 1998/99. The Club has also won the Brisbane and Ipswich Premierships several times in the 2000s.

The club has also produced many Queensland Churches representative players including four Australian players (Brad Case, J.King, Dale Bederow & Chris Brosnan) one of which was an Australian Churches captain (Brad Case). The high point was the Australian Churches carnival in Melbourne 2000/2001 where the club provided 8 of the 13 players in the touring party.
