BHRDCA Heritage – An update – January 2018
The BHRDCA Heritage committee was formed in 2006 and after a slow beginning has ramped up its activity over the last few years, culminating in the BHRDCA 125th Anniversary held in February 2015.
Subsequent to this the statistical history of the BHRDCA from 1890 to 1970/71 has been completed and is published on this Website.
Work compiling the records from the five decades from 1970 is progressing as well and alongside this a number of other activities have been completed (where the available information has been located).
- Compilation of all Office Bearers Records from the BHRDCA’s origins
- Compilation of all 1st Grade Grand Final Scorecards
- Compilation of Senior, Junior & Veterans Premierships for all Grades
- Biographies on more than 50 BHRDCA legendary players and administrators
- Short histories of clubs that have left the organization or folded throughout the 125+ seasons
- BHRDCA Average Winners, from 2000/01 to date, with earlier records being collated for those prior to 2000
BHRDCA Heritage has now commenced work on collating additional information from scorebooks to be sourced from Bulleen Templestowe, Burwood Districts, Doncaster and East Box Hill. BHRDCA Heritage will expand its collection of club histories with a focus on some of the bigger and more successful clubs that are no longer in the competition. As part of this ongoing activity, BHRDCA Heritage is always interested to hear from clubs and past/present players who may have information from pre 1971. We are interested in acquiring scorebooks, fixtures, annual reports, photographs and any other information relevant to the history of the BHRDCA.
We’ve spoken to many clubs and people already, but are always interested in expanding our list of contacts and available information.
BHRDCA Heritage has commenced the loading of past season fixtures into MyCricket, with East Doncaster an example of a club loading all available Scorebook details back to 1957-58. This will be a lengthy task as each match needs to be loaded manually into MyCricket to create a fixture.
On a positive note, BHRDCA Heritage has all senior fixtures (except for 1959-60 and 1966-67), which allows the establishment of seasons, grades, and teams within each grade for a given season. Watch this space as other heritage items get reviewed and reloaded. The introduction of this Website, has given BHRDCA Heritage an opportunity to share its findings with other interested parties from within and outside the BHRDCA. With details of over 11,000 senior grade matches between 1890 to 1971, we would love to hear from interested parties and respond to inquiries which give us ideas and a sense of direction on what else we could now also focus on.
If you do have a question about local cricket in the inner and outer eastern suburbs, or BHRDCA history prior to 1971, that would be of interest to yourself or to your club, please contact…
