A brief history into Cardiff Boolaroo District Cricket Club
The club originally known as Western Lakes, made its debut in the 1949/50 season based in Speers Point. Shortly after, changing its name to Boolaroo Cardiff then ultimately Cardiff Boolaroo when making the transition to Cardiff Ovals.
In 2019/20, the club was offered the opportunity of utilising the brand-new first-class facilities at Pasterfield Sports Complex, now hosting our first and second grade teams with lower grade teams continuing to play at Cardiff Ovals 1 & 2.
The club has produced numerous representative players at both a junior and senior level throughout the course of its proud history. This continues to be a key focus for our current committee - We pride ourselves on providing playing opportunities, from our family based social development league through to grade cricket that paves the way for representative and first class cricket, a pathway that all members can be proud of.
Having been a member of our committee for a number of years Mark took over as president prior to the 2021-22 season. Under his leadership CBDCC has implemented a strategic plan and already made great strides towards our goal.
Mark is one of the most accomplished Newcastle cricketers around having played a significant amount of cricket and coached even more. Mark has been with us for several years and we are extremely lucky to have one of the best coaches in the Newcastle region.
Our club captain Matthew is CBs through and through. Not only is he one of our most loyal players he is also one of the best bowlers currently in Newcastle playing in our 1st grade side for the better part of a decade and as a representative player for Newcastle.
