Sydney University Cricket Club stalwart, Greg Mail, received the honour of Life Membership of Sydney Cricket Association at its Annual General Meeting at the SCG last night.
Greg's record in NSW Premier Cricket makes him arguably the greatest Premier Cricket player in history with 22 years in first grade, 44 centuries, 72 fifties, 15,242 runs and five First Grade premierships.
Along with Greg's immense numbers in NSW Premier Cricket, he has been a guiding voice for the players on the SCA Committee of Management for a number of years, and one of the most respected cricketers in Australian Premier Cricket.
Greg joins fellow Sydney University Cricket members the late Mick O'Sullivan (2002), former Chairman James Rodgers (2004) and current Chairman Max Bonnell (2016) as Life Members of the SCA.
Former Australian Test player, Sydney Uni batsman and great mate, Ed Cowan, battled through the man flu to give a heart felt endorsement of Greg's nomination.
Greg's impact on not only Sydney Uni, but the entire NSW Premier Cricket competition has been immense, striving for excellence and bringing out the best from team mates and opponents alike, whilst forming friendships all across Sydney cricket ovals.
Greg thanked a number of players who helped shape his cricketing career including former Sydney Uni all-rounder Ian Moran and current Sydney Uni batting coach, Grant Lambert.
He was especially thankful to the cricketing community that he has become a part of throughout a two-decade long career.
Sydney University Cricket Club congratulates Greg on this achievement and thanks him for his years of dedicated service to making this club the powerhouse that it is today.
