The Committee, Players and supporters of Geelong City Cricket Club were sad to hear of the recent passing of GCA historian and statistician Kevin O’Dowd. Kevin recently passed onto the club a copy of the “Inaugural Meeting Minutes” of our club’s first General Meeting.
This fascinating document gives insight into our first season as a club and the challenges the committee faced in raising funds in pounds, shillings and pence and the statistics of our players in that first season of 1951-52.
President Dave Neil commented “Kevin, will be remembered by all GCA clubs as a significant contributor to the history of our game in the region. We are forever grateful that this important part of cricketing history for Geelong City Cricket Club was passed onto us. We know Kevin will be sorely missed and share our condolences to his family, friends, The East Belmont Cricket Club and the GCA”.
Geelong City teams wore black armbands on Saturday as a mark of respect for Kevin.
