After an extended hiatus, we’re now finally into our fourth edition in our “From The Spartan Archives” series, and today, we’re looking at an interesting albeit restricted chapter in Spartan Cricket Club history.
An astonishing team performance from the Leeming Spartan First Grade sees our top side move into next weekend’s Grand Final after a sensational semi-final victory over CBC at John Connell on Sunday.
Congratulations to all on what was yet another incredible day in the Club’s long history!
It’s all even after day one in our First Grade Semi Final against CBC on what was a wet, cold and sluggish day.
With summer over before it had seemingly even begun, Leeming Spartan were sent in to bat on the opening day of our First Grade Semi Final on a grey and miserable day, CBC winning the toss and unsurprisingly electing to field.
A truly momentous day has taken place last Saturday at the home of cricket, as Todd Gill obliterated the record books in cracking 144 in the First Grade to lead the side to the top of the ladder.

The Leeming Spartan Cricket Club has acquired a rich history of home grounds since our foundation in 1918, all of which have very interesting stories to tell.
