First, the Mailstones.
When he reached 18 against Gordon on Saturday, Greg Mail became the first player ever to record 10,000 First Grade runs for Sydney University.
Mail carried his tally to 10,013 runs, at an average of 51.35. To give some idea of the scope of his achievement, the next highest run-scorer for University in Firsts is Ian Moran, with 8695 runs at an average of 35. Nine other players have scored 10,000 First Grade runs for a single club. They are:
Tommy Andrews (Petersham), 11,719
Grant Lambert (Fairfield), 11,413
Sid Carroll (Gordon), 11,322
Warren Saunders (St George), 10,952
Brian Booth (St George), 10,674
Jack Chegwyn (Randwick), 10,455
Anthony Clark (Fairfield-Liverpool), 10,423
Greg Hayne (UTS-Balmain), 10,285
Monty Noble (paddington), 10,277
In addition, Richard Chee Quee scored 11,886 First Grade runs without changing clubs, but a few thousand were scored after Randwick amalgamated with Petersham-Marrickville to create a new club, Randwick-Petersham.
When Mail's score against Gordon reached 23, he became the first player in the history of NSW Premier Cricket to reach 15,000 runs in First Grade. His total (for Parramatta, Hawkesbury, Balmain and Sydney University) is now 15,008 at 46.75. He is almost 3000 runs clear of the next highest scorer, his one-time opening partner at UTS-Balmain, Greg Hayne (12,354).
Ryan Carters' excellent 113 in First Grade against Gordon was his first century for the Club.
Ed Cowan also notched two significant landmarks in First Grade's match with Gordon. His polished 58 was his 50th score above fifty in First Grade (including 12 centuries). And it carried him past 6500 First Grade runs.
Hayden Kerr's unbeaten 129 against Gordon was his highest score for the Club, and his first century in Third Grade.
Charlie Litchfield also played a role in Third Grade's demolition of Gordon: his 109 not out was his first century for the Club.
Angus Cusack made his debut for the Club in Fifth Grade against Gordon, and captured his first wickets, taking 3-75.
