Luncheon with Special Guest Daphne Benaud

21/04/16 Category: Blog Posted by:

Saturday 30th April marked the ‘End of the Season – Chairman’s Luncheon and match between the Chairman’s XI and the President’s XI on Bradman Oval. This year we were especially pleased to announce that Daphne Benaud would be a guest of the museum, unveiling a commissioned Dave Thomas painting of Richie and Sir Donald Bradman. The painting now hangs in the Game Gallery of the Museum.

Two memorable highlights of the luncheon in the Main Hall consisted of MC Mike Coward conducting a Q & A session with newly announced 2016 Bradman Scholar, Tom Galvin from Bathurst, and a very special surprise guest, former South African right-hand batsman, Mr Barry Richards.

It was a closely contested match on the Oval with the Chairman’s XI defeating the President’s XI by one run in the 37th over. Batting first the Chairman’s XI scored 178 from their 40 overs, with Jack Preddey top scoring with 57 n.o, while captain Peter Jensen and James Newman both scored 32.

For the President’s XI the bowling honours went to newly announced 2016 Bradman Scholar, Tom Galvin with figures of 2/10, along with Dave Talbert (2/24) and Chris Weller (2/25).

The Chairman’s innings got off to a great start with inaugural Bradman Scholar Geoff Lovell scoring (40), along with scholar’s David Miller (50n.o) and Andrew Lowe (39).
