Life Members

LIFE MEMBERS
to 2016-17

The heart and soul of Randwick Petersham Cricket resides in the history of four separate Sydney Grade clubs - Petersham, Randwick, Marrickville and Petersham-Marrickville. The collective lifespan of those founding clubs together with the 16 years of Randwick Petersham to 2017 amounts to 256 playing years.

During that time only 86 Life Memberships have been awarded (Randwick 29, Petersham 10, Marrickville 7, Petersham-Marrickville 29 and Randwick Petersham 11). Each of the clubs carefully guarded the conferring of such honour upon its members. A member had to have made a significant contribution to the club, the game and its members before their name would be put forward for the granting of the ultimate honour of Life Membership.

When Petersham merged with Marrickville in 1951, the Life Members of both clubs were deemed to be Life Members of the newly formed Petersham-Marrickville DCC. And so it was with the merger between Randwick and Petersham-Marrickville in 2001 with Life Members of both clubs becoming foundation Life Members of Randwick Petersham CC.

Each was allotted a number corresponding with the order of their election by their respective clubs. Sadly, in the first 15 years of Randwick Petersham, seven of the club's most senior Life Members passed away. They were LM No.1 Stroyan Donnan (died 2002), LM No. 8 Phil Tresidder (2003), LM No.2 Alf Debnam (2004), LM No.3 Noel Hughes (2012), LM No. 4 Arthur Purvis (2012), LM No. 23 Helen Milford (2013) and LM No. 5 John O’Loughlin (2014).
(Life Members up to 2001 were elected by the founding clubs. Former Randwick Life Members are marked *)
