Our Guest of Honour. 

Following the conclusion of our AGM members and friends of the Society present will be entertained by a talk from Nick Richardson. Nick is a Tasmanian-born journalist and author. He has written “The Silk Express”, the fascinating story of E. A. ‘Ted’ McDonald, the other half of the famous Gregory – McDonald new ball pairing which carried all before it in Australia’s Test matches during the early 1920s.

Ted McDonald’s feats as one of Australia’s leading wicket-takers in the years immediately following the First World War are well known. What is not as well known are the controversial reasons why he left Australia at the height of his powers to become a professional cricketer in the north of England.

This special biography was published early this year by our own Ken Piesse. Signed copies are available for sale at the function at $50 each.
