GLENELG DISTRICT CRICKET CLUB
Mr PATTERSON (Morphett) (15:34): The Glenelg District Cricket Club, known as the Seahorses, was established in 1907 and is located at Glenelg Oval on Brighton Road, Glenelg, and has just started playing matches for the upcoming season. The club held its annual general meeting on 10 September, and at that meeting club president, Bob Snewin, retired after 28 years in the role as president. That represents a lot of overs bowled and many runs scored.
Even before becoming president, Bob had been heavily involved with the club. Bob first served on the board in 1970, 48 years ago. When he first joined the board, Dick Niehuus, Sam Starling, Leith Jacob, Brian Illman, Murray Sargent and Martin Chappell were also members of the board and were his mentors. In Bob's words, 'These people engendered into me the spirit of the club.'......Read his full speech here
