THE TEAM

 

Past and present players Chris Johnston, Rod Taylor, Marc Fidler and Stephen Huggett
chose the Team of the 25 Years.  Statistics were provided and where possible
information was gathered on players who played prior to 1984-85 due to the fact that no
scorebooks were available for the Club's first 5 years.

 

The team is a mixture of current and former players and was chosen in batting order:-

 

 

GLENN PEARCE 1982-2004

Opening Batsman/Wicketkeeper/Captain

 

Games Played: 252

Premierships: 10

Batting: 5321 runs, average 22.84, 100's: 1, 50's: 21, HS: 102 vs Indooroopilly District

Bowling: 10 wickets, 22.30 average, 10W/M: 0, 5W/I: 0, BB 3-6 vs Stafford

Fielding: 306 catches, 26 stumpings

 

One of the longest serving players in the Club and a life member, Glenn was chosen as
one of the opening batsman in the side and also as wicketkeeper where he took an
astonishing 322 dismissals over a 23 year career.  Pearce was an automatic choice in
the side given his record of over 5000 runs and was also named captain of the team
after captaining Coorparoo to 5 A1 premierships.

Opening Batsman

Fielding: 46 catches

 

Since making his debut in the 1997-98 "Macca" quickly made his mark and has been one
of the most consistent players to play for the Club, averaging over 20 in each season.
McInerney has also represented the Club in Sub Districts representative sides and is
expected to one day take the mantle of having the most runs for the Club.

With a batting average of 43.50, this former Sheffield Shield player was destined to be

chosen as a middle order batsman in the Team of 25 Years.  Holds the club record of
most runs in a season with 813 back in 1986-87, a record which will take some beating.
Also captained the A1 team back in the early years.

1998/99 and again in 1999/00.  Also has captained 4 A1 premiership teams.

Since making his debut in the 1988/89 season, "Pratty" has been one of the most
durable players missing only a handful of matches.  Has also become a successful
captain winning back to back premierships in 04/05 (A2) and 05/06 (A1).  A handy back
up wicketkeeper in this team and became a life member in 2004/05.

 

 

 

NATHAN DADDS 1984-CURRENT

Allrounder

 

Games Played: 250

Premierships: 12

Bowling: 529 wickets, 13.76 average, 10W/M: 3, 5W/I: 23, BB: 7-11 vs West Brisbane

Fielding: 131 catches

 

Another one of the first people picked in the Team of the 25 Years, quite possibly the
only honour missing from a brilliant career.  Recently surpassed the incredible
milestone of 5000 runs and 500 wickets and continues to produce the results.  Winner
of Paul Stafford Medal in 2004/05 and runner up in 2005/06.  Has also taken 2 hat-tricks,

MARK MCLEAN 1980-1998

Allrounder

 

Games Played: 108

Premierships: 4

Batting: 1302 runs, 18.34 average, 100's: 0, 50's: 5, HS: 76* vs Taringa

Bowling: 234 wickets, 12.16 average, 10W/M: 0, 5W/I: 4, BB: 6-15 vs Indooroopilly District

Fielding: 40 catches

 

Fine allrounder whose statistics don’t tell the full story because of the missing
scorebooks from prior to 1984-85.  Consistent bowler and more than handy batsman and
widely regarded by those who played with him as the best bowler they have played with.

 

 

 

ROD BUCHNER 1984-CURRENT

Allrounder

 

Games Played: 206

Premierships: 6

Batting: 2327 runs, 16.39 average, 100's: 0, 50's: 3, HS: 91* vs Ashgrove

Bowling: 482 wickets, 12.06 average, 10W/M: 2, 5W/I: 14, BB: 7-16 vs Brookfield

Fielding: 81 catches

 

Consistent player over a number of years who was largely responsible for a C2
premiership victory in 1996/97 playing a huge role in the Grand Final.  Big clubman who
wears his heart on his sleeve and could not be left out of this team.  Should achieve the
staggering feat of 500 wickets in the 2006/07 season.

 

 

RICK BADRICK 1990-2005

Fast Bowler

 

Games Played: 97

Premierships: 3

Batting: 1324 runs, 17.19 average, 100's: 0, 50's: 4, HS: 78 vs Brookfield

Bowling: 326 wickets, 8.43 average, 10W/M: 7, 5W/I: 27, BB: 7-23 vs Rochedale South

Fielding: 47 catches

 

One of the first bowlers picked in this side due to his amazing strike-rate and average
over a number of seasons in every grade.  Has taken 5 wickets an innings on a
mammoth 27 occasions and also has the ability to churn out runs when needed.  Was
named Player of the Year in 2000/01.

 

 

 

BRUCE SPENCER 1996-2000

Fast Bowler

 

Games Played: 40

Premierships: 2

Batting: 121 runs, 6.72 average, 100's: 0, 50's: 0, HS: 21 vs Indooroopilly District

Bowling: 96 wickets, 10.79 average, 10W/M: 0, 5W/I: 2, BB: 6-32 vs Logan City

Fielding: 10 catches

 

One of the few left arm quick bowlers to make an impact for the club and was a key
selection in this team due to his strike-rate and ability to perform at the highest grade.

 

 

 

12TH MAN

TIM COCKRAM 1999-CURRENT

Allrounder

 

Games Played: 75

Premierships: 0

Batting: 1665 runs, 22.50 average, 100's: 2, 50's: 5, HS: 105* vs Logan City

Bowling: 245 wickets, 9.45 average, 10W/M: 3, 5W/I: 13, BB: 8-3 vs Springwood

Fielding: 43 catches

 

Unlucky not to make the starting team in a very strong side.  Very consistent
performer in every team he has played in.  Won the inaugural Paul Stafford Medal in
2002/03 in a tie with teammate Craig Louis.  Continues to take wickets at a miserly
manner.
