History Pre-merger


Centenary Junior Cricket Club

 

The Centenary Cricket Club was formed in the early 1970's and became incorporated on 11 October 1993. It was a club for junior boys and girls to learn the skills of the game of cricket and to play in a structured competition for fun sporting days and a pathway for the gifted few to follow their dreams to higher levels of their sport. Cricket was played on local school ovals and Peter Lightfoot Oval which Centenary CC partly managed along with St Catherine's Soccer and Netball as part of the Centenary Combined Sporting Association. (CCSA)

Centenary operated at a severe disadvantage, as we did not have:

    • grounds that were specifically identified as belonging to the club
    • a Clubhouse to hold meetings, or functions or to bring all members of the club together.
    • adequate facilities for storage of equipment and club records.

  • Our membership was expanding with the development in the Forest Lake area. In order for cricket to continue to develop in the Centenary/Forest Lake suburbs it was identified that our club needed specific grounds and clubhouse facilities even on a shared basis. We envisaged that we could develop a better club spirit, which would be an asset to the community of the Centenary/Forest Lake suburbs.

We set about looking for grounds and a place to call home and pursued a number of options with the assistance of local Councillors and Members of Parliament and Queensland Cricket. An outcome of this was our securing of a summer season licence at the CJ Greenfields Sporting Complex in Richlands.  Also in 2003 we pursued a merger with Wolston Park CC.

A former Centenary player who was with the Queensland Bulls is Craig Phillipson.
