Senior Reserve /2nd XI /Club30 Batting

Only two instances of a winner of the Junior batting prior to 1945 survived into present day. From looking over the minutes from the Annual General Meetings the following information has been gathered.

In 1922 J Granger was presented with the E Maudes Bat, who had the bat presented to him by F Graham. It is unknown what W Manson was presented with in 1940

During the early years of the club many 'outside matches' were played, that is matches against opposition outside the local club competition. It is unknown if the statistics below include these matches, but are listed here as they were stated in the minutes from the Annual General Meetings.

The Des Kearns Cup is for the best batsman of the Club30 grade. First presented in 1959-60 the Cup is named after Des Kearns, a club supporter during the 50ties and 60ties, it was for originally for the Junior Grade batsman but after the introduction of Senior Reserve in the late 70ties changed to Senior Reserve. Since then the Second Grade and Senior Reserve have been replaced with the Club30 grade. Winners of this trophy have their name and the season they where awarded as batsman of the year engraved on the Senior Reserve/ 2nd XI honours board at King George Park, home of the Union Cricket Club.
