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
Games Played: 252
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.
MICHAEL MCINERNEY 1998-CURRENT
Games Played: 76
Batting: 2584 runs, 27.78 average, 100's: 3, 50's 14, HS: 117* vs West Brisbane

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.
JEFF LANGLEY 1984-1989
Middle Order Batsman
Games Played: 51
Batting: 1914 runs, 43.50 average, 100's: 2, 50's: 12, HS: 143 vs Indooroopilly District

Fielding: 23 catches
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.

several records including the highest individual score for a batsman for the Club and the
most career runs. Has also been awarded the Player of the Year Award in 1996/97,
1998/99 and again in 1999/00. Also has captained 4 A1 premiership teams.

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

Batting: 5379 runs, 26.37 average, 100's: 2, 50's: 24, HS 110 vs Ashgrove

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,
is a life member of the Club and the most successful premiership player in the Club,
winning an amazing 12.
MARK MCLEAN 1980-1998
Games Played: 108
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
Games Played: 206
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
Games Played: 97
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
Games Played: 40
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.
TIM COCKRAM 1999-CURRENT
Games Played: 75
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
