Late on Saturday afternoon, Tim Ley pinned University of NSW batsman Marcus Atallah in front of his stumps to collect his 41st wicket of the season: which was also his 300th wicket for Sydney University in First Grade and his 500th wicket for the club in all grades. These are two very rare accomplishments by one of the club's outstanding performers. Only four other bowlers have taken 300 First Grade wickets for Sydney University: Mick O'Sullivan (652), John Grimble (379), Ian Moran (336) and Peter James (316). And only five other bowlers have taken 500 wickets in all grades: James Rodgers (869), O'Sullivan (807), Chris McCrae (549), Michael Farrow (528) and Terry Murphy (501). Three other bowlers claimed over 500 wickets for the club but played all or most of their cricket before the establishment of the Grade competition in 1893: Tom Garrett (622), Monty Faithfull (619) and Joseph Coates (501).
Jono Craig-Dobson took his 150th wicket for the club when he had University of NSW's Daniel Ferrara caught by Alex Shaw in Second Grade.
Josh Toyer's 7-45 in Third Grade against University of NSW was the best return of his career with the club. After some early punishment, Josh had 1-28 from his first four overs before grabbing 6-17 in his second spell - he'll be on a hat-trick if University of NSW bats again. This was the first time he has taken seven wickets in an innings in Premier Cricket, the second time he has taken five or more in an innings in Third Grade, and his 13th five-wicket haul for the club. Josh now has 362 wickets for the club, which places him 14th on the club's all-time list of wicket-takers.
Brayden Dilley and Hayden Storey made their debuts in Third Grade against University of NSW.
Tom Draca and Ethan Jamieson made their debuts in Fourth Grade against University of NSW.
Andrew Wilkinson's lone hand of 53 (out of 117) in Fifth Grade against University of NSW was his first half-century in Fifths.
