Sydney University Cricket Club sadly advises that former member Dick Woodfield passed away peacefully on the 9th of April.
Dick was 1st Grade cap number 409, received a cricket blue in 1957 and took 33 wickets at 15.8 in 1st Grade. He was a key member of the first Sydney University First Grade team to reach a semi-final, in 1956-57. In that season, he achieved his best performance in the top grade, bowling unchanged throughout a St George innings of 80 to capture 7-37.
Following Dick's studies, he played and captained lower grade sides for Manly until 1974.
He was one of seven patrons of the SUCC Foundation.
A comprehensive obituary will appear in this year's Annual Report.
Our condolences go out to the Woodfield family.
