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 incredible chapter in Leeming Spartan Cricket Club history occurred in early 1996, when after an incredible sixty-seven years, the Club departed the Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association, and joined the South Suburban Cricket Association, with the aim of a future merger between the two governing bodies.
Seen here are some snapshots from our 2008/09 season, which saw an invincible First Grade take home the Premiership in what was a remarkable ninetieth year for the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club.
Seen here are photos from our hugely successful 2006/07 season, which was highlighted by a sensational First Grade Premiership and saw the retirement of Club Legend Brian Waterer from the position of President after a record 27 years.
Viewable here are some club photos from the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s 2003/04 season, our 85th year, which saw the official opening of our brand new multi-million dollar clubhouse!
See below for some invaluable photos from the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s 2001/02 season, which was highlighted by a two-day Premiership in the 5th Grade.
See here for some priceless photos from the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s 2000/01 season, which saw the first change in President in 21 years, as Peter Read succeeded the retiring Brian Waterer.
The Leeming Spartan Cricket Club’s Hall of Fame was introduced in 2005 as a means to honour and recognise the extensive on-field contributions of our leading players, since our inception in 1918. See the full list here.
The year of 2000 marked the dawn of a new age for the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club, beginning right at the top as we had our first new President, Peter Read, in more than twenty years, following the record set by Brian Waterer. Learn about this chapter in Spartan history here!
Brian Waterer is the definition of a true Spartan, having been part of the Club for over five decades. Here is a small token of our appreciation to him.
