Paul Gresham (later known as Tony Maher), died on 14 October 2016 from the effects of liver cancer.
Paul entered Sydney University in 1972 after completing his Higher School Certificate at St Joseph's College. He enrolled in Arts/Law and joined both the cricket club and the Rugby club. He played only a few seasons in the lower grades for the cricket club as a medium pacer but enjoyed a long and productive career with the Rugby club. Playing on the wing or as a centre, he reached First Grade in 1977 and played (mostly in Seconds and Thirds) until a broken ankle ended his career in 1985. He was flamboyant and extroverted: he seemed to know everyone involved in University sport, and his insistence on wearing bow ties and his University blazer made him an instantly recognisable figure in the Grandstand. Although his cricket career with University was brief, he played for many years for the Nondescripts in the City and Suburban competition.
The Club extends its condolences to Paul's family, especially his wife, Susanneh.
