With the Churches Association faltering, the Spring of 1929 presented a new challenge for the Club – the need to change competitions for the first time.

This was quickly put into effect, and the Spartan Cricket Club entered the second phase of its life in the 1929/30 season, when it joined the longstanding Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association.

Since the Spartan Cricket Club was founded in 1918 by the Reverend Hibbert of the Church of Christ in Fremantle, the Club had always had strong links to the Church, and spent its first decade playing in the organised Churches Association competition.

By the time of the 1929/30 season, the standard in the association had declined to such an extent that it was decided the Club move to the well-established Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association (The F&DMCA), where it continued to compete until the late 1990s.

Our Second President, Mr. Stuart Thomson (pictured below), a former mayor of East Fremantle, was now into his tenth year at the helm and played a pivotal role in ensuring the Club successfully transitioned into the F&DMCA, a move that would have been a somewhat difficult one as the Club had certainly enjoyed its time in the Churches competition.

The F&DMCA had originally came to be as The Fremantle Senior Association, which was formed ahead of the 1894/95 season, and is the first recorded association in the area.

Mr. Stuart Thomson, the second President of the Spartan Cricket Club.

The competition was played on a matting hard wicket surface, which were generally comprised of coir matting strips pegged down on a rolled grass base. This made it extremely difficult to bat on due to the atypical nature of the playing surface, and as such low scores were commonplace.

The Fremantle Senior Association was later replaced by the Fremantle Cricket Association in the 1895/96 and 1896/97 seasons, before it too was succeeded by the Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association (The F&DMCA).

The F&DMCA was formed by clubs representing many of Fremantle’s leading businesses and industrial establishments, and the association had a chequered career until 1914 when like most sporting associations in Western Australia it went into recess because of the Great War.

Towards the end of the First World War in late 1918, the F&DMCA was reconstituted, although the Spartan Cricket Club took another ten years before joining the association, following on from our time in the Churches Association.

The period between 1929 and 1942 itself was mixed. We celebrated some incredible individual performances, including our first ever centurion – Bob Kirk, who scored 101 not out in 1929, as well as some major premierships.

The summer of 1932 was one of our most turbulent, when we were denied a premiership against the seemingly unbeatable South Fremantle. Having won the Grand Final, the Spartans were set to be the Premiers, but under the rules of the time, as South Fremantle had won the Minor Premiership by finishing atop of the ladder, they had the right to a rematch, which they subsequently won.

“In 1932 we were denied a premiership, and despite having won the Grand Final, the rules of the time meant that South Fremantle (who finished top of the ladder) had the right to challenge, and won the rematch!”

Of course, the period is best known for what happened off the field. As the strong and influential leadership of Mr. Thomson reached its twentieth consecutive season, the Club was moved into recess because of the outbreak of the Second World War.

Having just overcame the Great Depression, 1942 marked the beginning of the most difficult period the Club has ever faced, and only because of the actions of fine Spartans in the late 1940s, was the Club reopened.

Previous Chapter (Chapter One – 1918-1929) 

Next Chapter (The War Years) 

The Spartan First Grade sometime in the late 1920s. Notice the black pads on the wicket-keeper, which were a staple of the era.

1929/1930 Season – The F&DMCA Years

President: Mr. S. Thomson (10th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. W. Potter (1st Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. A. Gracie (1st Year)
Treasurer: Mr. A. Gracie (4th Year)

At this time the Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association (The F&DMCA) was composed of eight clubs, these being The Workers Club, The Railways, Spicer & Dettmolds (generally known as Essandee), Harbour Trust, Boltons, Wesley, South Fremantle and now the Spartans.

It is worth noting that Wesley and South Fremantle were two of our oldest rivals, as they too had been members of the Churches Association.

In their first game in the F&DMCA, the Spartans defeated Wesley 108 runs to 69.

The side was as follows; M. Rossman, J. Gibson, K. Stenhouse, R. Kirk, R. Hickmott, J. Barnes, W. Petterson, I. McClumpha, K. Clifton, A. Gracie, and J. Vaughan.

A later game drew the following praise from The Fremantle Advertiser on 24th November, 1929:

Hey! What sort of a club have we got here?

Spartans against Essandee made 163 for the loss of only four wickets on the Park on Saturday. Opener Jack Gibson made 82 not out.

In another match against Essandee later in the season, Bob Kirk scored the Club’s first century when he made 101 not out.

Off the field, President Thomson served his tenth consecutive season in the role.

Given that the F&DMCA had become a much stronger association than the Churches Association, the Spartans performed creditably to finish fifth in this season.

Hickmott with 325 runs and 27 wickets was the star player for the season.

Globally, the Wall Street crash in October 1929 signalled the beginning of a severe depression for the whole industrialised world, known today as The Great Depression.

1930/1931 Season

President: Mr. S. Thomson (11th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (1st Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. A. Gracie (2nd Year)
Treasurer: Mr. A. Gracie (5th Year)

This season saw the Club qualify for the finals, only to lose their semi-final to the East Fremantle Footballers Cricket Club.

Little is known about the goings on during this season as unfortunately it received a very poor coverage in the local papers and very few figures for the season have been established.

1931/1932 Season – A Great Year Ruined

President: Mr. S. Thomson (12th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (2nd Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (1st Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (1st Year)

1931/32 developed into one of the most traumatic in the Club’s long history.

The year of 1932 was also a critical one for the nation as a whole, with the effects of the Great Depression reaching their peak, resulting in almost 32% of Australians unemployed or out of work.

For the Spartans, the side had developed into a very strong eleven, with the combination of a powerful attack spearheaded by Roy Thomson and Ritchie Hickmott coupled with thoughtful captaincy from Ian McClumpha.

As an all-rounder, McClumpha was one of the Club’s all-time great players, and was a deservedly inaugural inductee into our Hall of Fame.

There were also some very fine performances recorded during the season;

  • Ritchie Hickmott took 8 for 27 against North Fremantle
  • Roy Thomson (with 7 for 5) and Hickmott (with 3 for 8) routed present-day rivals CBC for just 17
  • Spartans 6 declared for 359 (with four of the batsmen retiring and Ken Clifton topscoring with 110) defeated Essandee 29 (with Hickmott capturing 8 for 14)
    • Incidentally The Fremantle Advocate recorded Essandee’s bowling as
      • Brewer 1 for 70
      • Shenfield 1 for 36
      • Rest of the Team 0 for 247!

The Premiership (Almost) Victory

Then came the Grand Final against South Fremantle, which saw Spartans 80 and 7 for 92 defeat South Fremantle 114 (Thomson 6 for 39) and 55 (Thomson 4 for 32), only to be denied the Premiership the following weekend.

In the words of The Fremantle Advocate:

“To the delight of a large crowd, Spartans defeated South Fremantle in the Final of the Mercantile by 3 wickets.

It was not that the crowd was entirely composed of Spartan supporters, but of cricketers who hoped that in the best interests of the game, South’s long run of Premierships would be broken.”

However, under the rules of the Association as they were then, because they won the Minor Premiership, South Fremantle had the right to challenge which they most certainly did.

Unfortunately for the Spartans, South Fremantle reversed the result of the previous game and so won the Premiership…

The scores in this rematch were such that South Fremantle scored 165 and 1 for 46, and the Spartans 133 and 5 declared for 114, with Hickmott compiling 83 for the Spartans in the first innings.

To have been Premiers for a week must have been a very frustrating experience indeed.

Off-spin bowler Thomson finished the season with 90 wickets at an average of 6.3, while Ian McClumpha 455 runs, and Ritchie Hickmott with 409 runs were the best of the batsmen.

1932/1933 Season – Major Departures

President: Mr. S. Thomson (13th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. W. Potter (1st Year, 2nd Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (2nd Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (2nd Year)

Another strong season from the Spartan Cricket Club was ruined once again by South Fremantle, who put a big dent in the Spartan’s hopes by defeating them in the semi-final.

An opening partnership of 102 earlier in the season by Hunt (83) and Jim Treloar (50) was a batting highlight, while the bowlers had their moment of glory when they bundled the Workers Club out for just 21.

Roy Thomson with 246 runs and 31 wickets was the leading player.

Thomson and another outstanding all-rounder in Ritchie Hickmott left Spartans at this stage, and went on to enjoy very successful WACA careers with North Fremantle and Fremantle respectively.

Their departure left the Spartan Cricket Club in a very weak state, a situation that took some time to correct.

1933/1934 Season – Forgettable At Best

President: Mr. S. Thomson (14th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (1st Year, 3rd Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (3rd Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (3rd Year)

The 1933/34 season will have to rank as one of the worst in the Club’s history, as we didn’t win a game, and finished last in a nine-match competition.

In the process the Spartans suffered the indignity of being dismissed by East Fremantle for just 18, which to this day remains the lowest score by the Club in the First Grade.

It is interesting to note that during this season, Fremantle Park had deteriorated into such a poor condition that Richmond Raceway became the headquarters of the F&DMCA. This is explained in further detail on our Home Ground History page.

At this stage, Richmond Raceway was also the Spartan’s ‘home ground’ – not an official home ground, but rather a small area in a larger complex for our players to congregate and hang a few old photos on the wall.

This season was another of those that received scant attention from the local papers and very few figures from the season have been established, although it is probably for the best!

1934/1935 Season – A Great Turnaround

President: Mr. S. Thomson (15th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (2nd Year, 4th Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (4th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (4th Year)

Fortunately the disastrous performance of the previous season was soon forgotten as the Club went from strength to strength to enjoy a very good season indeed.

There were eleven clubs associated with the F&DMCA for this season, the Court Unity, The Railways, Druids, East Fremantle, South Fremantle, CBC Old Boys, Scots, Spartans, Workers Club, RANR, and Fremantle.

Spartans won the Minor Premiership but unfortunately lost the Grand Final to East Fremantle.

Interestingly, East Fremantle had to wait over fifty years until 1987/88 before they won their next First Grade Premiership.

The highlights of the season were:

  • Spartans all out 31 defeating Scots all out 14, with Ian McClumpha capturing 5 for 6
  • Spartans dismissing Fremantle for 17 runs
  • Claude Steenholdt Senior taking 7 for 18 and 8 for 14 – match figures of 15 for 32 – against Court Unity
  • Jim Treloar taking 8 for 35 against East Fremantle

Ian McClumpha with 246 runs and Jim Treloar with 67 wickets led the way for most of the season.

1935/1936 Season

President: Mr. S. Thomson (16th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (3rd Year, 5th Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (5th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (5th Year)

This season saw Spartans slip out of the four following their runners-up placing the previous year.

The outstanding performance for the season was a last wicket partnership of 108 between Alan Ebbs (80no) and number eleven Claude Steenholdt (43), with the Navy Club being on the receiving end.

Steinholdt’s 223 runs and G. Hollingsworth‘s 37 wickets were the stars.

1936/1937 Season

President: Mr. S. Thomson (17th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (4th Year, 6th Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (6th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (6th Year)

1936/37 didn’t see much improvement in the Club’s on-field fortunes, but two individual efforts by Bob Kirk demonstrated what a fine cricketer he had become.

The first was a chanceless innings of 111 in only 59 minutes against East Fremantle, followed by a haul of 9 for 42 against the Navy Club.

He finished the season with 342 runs and 20 wickets to be the leading player.

Off the field, the Club was very strong, and now had a very settled and seasoned Committee who had been in place for four seasons without change. President Thomson was now into his sixteenth season as leader, whilst Fiddament was into his sixth season as secretary and treasurer.

1937/1938 Season – Churches Association Ends

President: Mr. S. Thomson (18th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. C. Saggers (5th Year, 7th Overall)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (7th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (7th Year)

This season had much the same result as the previous, with fifth place being the best the Spartan Cricket Club could manage.

They did have one very satisfying moment when they dismissed their old rivals South Fremantle for just 47.

Ian McClumpha with 6 for 30 and George Prince with 4 for 17 were the destroyers.

McClumpha as captain led from the front with 258 runs and 31 wickets for the season.

This season also led to the demise of The Churches Association as a competitive body in Fremantle cricket.

Many of the clubs participating in the F&DMCA at this time had been founded in the Churches Association, including ourselves in the Spartan Cricket Club, and there were many who were very sad to see the Churches Association fold.

1938/1939 Season

President: Mr. S. Thomson (19th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. I. McClumpha (1st Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (8th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (8th Year)

1938/39 was not a particularly memorable season as the Spartans only managed to finish eighth out of the eleven teams.

George Prince Senior with 343 runs, and Ian McClumpha with 225 runs and 56 wickets were the stars.

A highlight of the season was Spartans dismissing the Soap Distributors for 41 – in just 4 (eight ball) overs!

Off the field Clarrie Saggers retired from his position of Vice President after five consecutive seasons (and seven overall) in the role.

1939/1940 Season – Back In The Four

President: Mr. S. Thomson (20th Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. I. McClumpha (2nd Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. P. Fiddament (9th Year)
Treasurer: Mr. P. Fiddament (9th Year)

The turn of the decade marked a much better effort for the Club, as the side reached the four for the first time in three years.

Unfortunately however, they lost in the semi-finals to the Lumpers Cricket Club.

Nevertheless, there were some notable efforts during this season, when;

  • Spartans belted 4 for 251 in 100 minutes with skipper Ian McClumpha leading the way with 110, backed up by Phil Tasker with 104.
    • This pair played for the F&DMCA against York the following day and each made a score in the nineties.
  • Spartans dismissed the CBC Old Boys for 34 in 7 (eight ball) overs.
    • Bob Ballantyne, the well known and long serving post-war secretary of the Fremantle Cricket Club (in the WACA Premier Grade) took 4 for 13, with Ian McClumpha chipping in as per usual with 3 for 19.
  • Ballantyne also hit the headlines when he took a hattrick against the Catholic Young Mens Society Cricket Club.

Ian McClumpha with 542 runs and 48 wickets had a magnificent year, and some five decades later it was still the greatest all-round performance by a Spartan player in a season.

Globally, the Second World War had officially begun with the German invasion of Poland, and this led to a gradual decline in the number of players available for Saturday cricket which lasted until the late 1940s.

President Thomson became the first, and to this day only, Spartan to have led the Club for two decades consecutively.

After nine successful years as both Secretary and Treasurer, Percy Fiddament finally retired from the position, and was succeeded by Vice President Ian McClumpha.

1940/1941 Season – War Takes Its Toll

President: Mr. S. Thomson (21st Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. I. McClumpha (3rd Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. I. McClumpha (1st Year)
Treasurer: Mr. I. McClumpha (1st Year)

This season saw the Second World War gradually pushing sporting competitions into the background, and as a result the membership of the F&DMCA had fallen away to only six clubs.

Spartans finished fifth, but won a competition called the Second Division Shield by beating Sixth side East Fremantle.

Tasker and Ian McClumpha gave the side a great start in this match with an opening stand of 150, and from there the Spartans never looked back.

1941/1942 Season – The Club Goes Into Recession

President: Mr. S. Thomson (22nd & Final Year)
Senior Vice President: Mr. I. McClumpha (4th & Final Year)
Junior Vice President:  
Secretary: Mr. I. McClumpha (2nd & Final Year)
Treasurer: Mr. I. McClumpha (2nd & Final Year)

The season struggled along until Christmas 1941, when it was decided at a meeting of the captains at Fremantle Park to suspend the competition until the cessation of hostilities.

This decision was based on the fact that the state of the war had reached a pretty grim stage, most teams were struggling to find enough players, and Fremantle Park was about to be covered with obstacles to prevent enemy aircraft from landing on it in the eventuality that Australia was invaded.

The bombing of Port Moresby in New Guinea (now Papua New Guinea) by the Japanese had Australians on high alert about a possible invasion, and these fears were exacerbated by the attack on Darwin later that month.

Furthermore, a surprise Japanese raid on Broome, Western Australia, left nearly 100 casualties, and was the first time the state had been attacked in an act of war by a foreign nation.

The war in the Pacific and the threat of Japan meant Australia’s involvement in the War would only continue to grow as the years went on, and as such, there was simply no time for cricket. This was a sentiment echoed by the many men of the era, many of whom deemed it inappropriate to be enjoying and partaking in sport during a time of global horror.

The Club, and F&DMCA had held on for as long as they could, having continued to compete when the war first began in 1939. They played for a further two years before the Japanese threat rendered it impossible to continue playing cricket.

The Spartan Cricket Club was put into hiatus and all historical artefacts were stored until the day when cricket in Fremantle could resume.

“It was truly the end of an era.”

The period following World War One marked one of the first times in Western Australia when organised social cricket competitions took place, and the Spartan Cricket Club was certainly one of the most successful results of this change.

Fremantle Park in 1914, when it was covered for use towards the War effort. This covering of the reserve also occurred in 1942 during the Second World War, making an abrupt end to the Spartan Cricket Club and the F&DMCA.

The Era In Review:

So ended this second stage in the Spartan Cricket Club’s history.

Since its inception, the Club always had the Church of Christ in Fremantle as its parent figure.

The Pastor of the Church Reverend Hibbert was responsible for forming the Spartan Cricket Club to enable those returning form the First World War a way to re-immerse themselves in society.

It is incredible to think then, that the Second World War is what put an end to the Club’s twenty four years of continued operation.

The Church Of Christ on High Street, Fremantle, (as seen today) served as a perfect location for Spartan players to congregate for many years.

Such was the extent of the Church involvement, that we participated in the Churches Association during our first decade, and additionally, the Church Hall in High Street, Fremantle, (opposite CBC) was a marvellous venue for all of our social activities for a long period of time.

A decline in the standard of the Churches Association led to our move into the Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association in 1929, an association which had links back to the late 1800s.

From here, we played until the outbreak of World War Two, overcoming the Great Depression, and winning a number of Premierships and setting significant records along the way.

President Stuart Thomson, a former mayor of East Fremantle, provided influential leadership for two decades, serving to ensure the Club would go from strength to strength in the face of adversity, even outliving the Churches Association itself.

Dedicated volunteers in Ian McClumpha, Percy Fiddament, Alf Meyer, and Clarrie Saggers to name but only a few, were outstanding assets to the Club, their efforts made even more significant because of the fact that the Spartan Cricket Club was in its early days.

These fine men had enabled the Club to reach its twenty fourth year of operation in 1942, before the global atrocities of the Second World War put an abrupt end to this chapter in the Spartan Cricket Club’s history.

Spartans’ Finest:

During the period of 1918 to 1942, the Spartan Cricket Club had been represented by many fine players.

Many of these became renowned in other sports while some made their mark in the WACA grade competition. To name but a few:

  • Bob Kirk
  • Roy Thomson
  • Ritchie Hickmott
  • Ron Doig 
    • Who represented Western Australia at First Class Level
    • Ron later died of injuries received in a football match when he was captain-coach of South Fremantle
  • Bill Myer
  • Aub Jarvis
  • Bub Jarvis
    • Who represented Western Australia at both football and cricket
    • Bub is rated by many, even in the post-war years, as the greatest player ever to represent East Fremantle in the WAFL
  • Ken Clifton
  • Ian McClumpha
    • Our Club Captain from 1931 to 1942 and 1945-48
  • Reg Prince
  • Vic Prince
  • Jim Treloar
  • Claude Steenholdt
    • Whose father and son both played for the Club
  • George “Rosa” Prince
    • Another East Fremantle and State footballer
  • Percy Fiddament
    • Who was secretary from 1931 to 1940
  • Eddie Saggers
  • Jack Vaughan
  • Randall Mudge
    • Who moved to Victoria where he served as President of the Victorian Football Association for some years during the 1960’s

Leading Performers:

Statistical records of the era have been hard to establish, but countless hours of research at the Battye Library completed by two Club legends in Graeme Ashley and Brian Waterer, has filled in quite a number of gaps, and although they aren’t complete as yet they are certainly getting close.

The leading players of the period and their aggregates were as follows:

#Leading Run ScorersRuns ScoredLeading Wicket TakersWickets Taken
1Ian McClumpha2297Frank McClumpha196
2Bob Kirk1122Ian McClumpha168

7Gordon Hollingsworth770Bob Jarvis89

9Alan Stenhouse689Bob Kirk68
10Claude Steinholdt Senior660Jim Brooke56

As stated earlier, the pitches that they played on were atrocious by modern standards – often little more than rolled grass – so it is not surprising that the bowling figures look more impressive than the batting figures.

It is important to once again note that this era also spanned the Great Depression, and many players missed seasons, or parts thereof, as they were off looking for work. Thus, the men on the above list would have been able to achieve greater statistics had they been able to play on a more regular basis.

Following On:

As the Spartan Cricket Club was disbanded in 1942, it was always with the believed intention that the Club would reopen as the War concluded.

It is remarkable to think that the Spartans of the time were more than confident of getting the Club fully operational again, albeit in a time frame that was a lot longer than they had anticipated.

With the aid of hindsight, we know that this confidence of a quick victory in Europe and the Pacific was perhaps overly optimistic, and certainly the cost of life and impact of the War was unprecedented.

As Fremantle Park, a prominent ground for all clubs in the association and former home of the Spartan Cricket Club, was converted for use in the war (as well as being covered to prevent any unauthorised landing of aircraft), there were certainly pessimistic feelings about the future as the War entered its third year.

Despite this, and the longer than anticipated predictions as to when the War would conclude, the Spartan Cricket Club did re-emerge in late 1945, following the defeat of Nazi Germany.

As we explore in the next two chapters, the impact of the Second World War was the single biggest challenge the Club had to face in order to continue its operation.

It is remarkable to think that with the impact of so many fine Spartans, that not only was the Club re-found, but made more successful than it had ever been.

Interestingly, the Spartan Cricket Club colours to this stage had been copied from the Sussex Cricket Club in England, and were namely blue and gold.

In Conclusion:

The second chapter of the history of the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club, during the years of 1929 and 1942 under our second President Stuart Thomson, were groundbreaking to say the least.

A change in direction and operation brought on by a move to the Fremantle & Districts Mercantile Cricket Association certainly proved challenging at first, but it was with a keen eye to the future success of the Club that made it a masterstroke.

The years between 1929 and 1942 can today be looked upon as being, in layman’s terms, simply unlucky, but despite the fact that the period lasted 13 years, they actually weren’t.

They were certainly challenging, but the influence of the fine leaders the Club had at its disposal ensured that there was no lack of progress during the period.

These Spartans certainly set the precedent for the future, and their influence is still visible in the inner-workings of the Spartan Cricket Club today.

Chapter Thanks:

A special thank you to Graeme Ashley and Brian Waterer for the countless hours they have spent in compiling the historical information regarding this chapter of Leeming Spartan Cricket Club history and preparing it for our website. This incredible effort is part of what makes the Leeming Spartan Cricket Club one of the most historically accurate and successful clubs in Western Australia.
