This past Saturday on his 30th Birthday, Club Captain Joshua Barrett became the clubs all time leading run scorer in 1st Grade Cricket. Josh moved to 5,326 runs, surpassing Club Legend Shane Deitz’s record of 5,299 runs.

Josh arrived at the club at the age of 11 and made his way through the junior and senior grades before making his 1st Grade debut in the last round of the 2007/08 season. In doing so he became the 86th player to play 1st Grade cricket for the club. Since then Josh has played over a hundred 1st Grade games. Josh also holds club records for; the highest 1st Grade score with 201*, and the most runs in a 1st Grade season, with 898, which he scored in the 2015/16 premiership season.

The Southern District Cricket Club would like to congratulate Josh on this outstanding achievement.
