A history worth exploring
It has recently been discovered that the Burwood Cricket Club had been in existence at least
as long as the city of Burwood itself. Until the last few months, it was thought that the Club
had reached its centenary and this milestone would be well-deserved cause for celebration.
However, a careful perusal of historical newspapers reveals that the club can trace its
history to at least 1873 and so next year the Club intends to celebrate its 150th anniversary.
To ensure the research is professional and thorough, the Club plans to engage a qualified
historian to fully document the history of the Club and seek to find more about the men and
women who have contributed to the Club’s longevity and success.
