GPS Cricket

The great English game of cricket was one of the first past times for the boys of Nudgee College in 1891. In fact, the College blazer has its origins in cricket as it was introduced as a 'Cricket Coat' in 1910.

Nudgee College's greatest teams are considered to be the sides of the late 1930s. Their captain, Terry McKenna, is remembered for his great leadership and ability with the bat.

Nudgee College won three GPS Premierships in the 1990s: '91, '94 and '98. Queensland Shield player, Jimmy Maher was the Captain of the 1991 side. Nudgee College's most recent Premierships were in 2001 and 2009 when captained by Corey Barsby.

Players who have gone on to represent their country in cricket include Jimmy Maher, Glen Batticciotto, Nathan Hauritz and Brendan Nash (West Indies). Recent Old Boys Joe Burns, Chris Lynn and Corey Barsby are now playing for the Queensland Bulls.
