QSCC Remembers Sir John Graham

A Tribute to Sir John Graham
         In 1989 John (DJ) Graham became a founding member of the Queen Street Cricket Club and his enthusiasm for the organisation never waned.

Although a great All Black and an outstanding educator, he loved the fine game of cricket.

Moreover, he loved the Queen Street Cricket Club, never failing to attend lunches and other functions.

He once said, “The Queen Street Cricket Club is a special haven for lovers, followers and eccentrics of the finest team game of them all. Its charities too, reflect its members’ sense of community.”

Later, John became an active committee member where his guidance and his humour were most appreciated.

One evening, John told the committee he had so many commitments he needed to resign.

Making up rules on the spot, the Chairman told John he was required to give three years notice of a resignation. Realising he was defeated, John laughed and served another three years.

There are no words to express how sincerely we will miss Sir John Graham.



“Let the scorebook show the game was won,

And you should be well satisfied to know your best was done.


Even when that grim bowler with his deadly pace


Began that last "Over" which we all must face,


You were of good cheer;


You had done your best nor run your partner out,


And though the shout went up "How's that?"


You still had no fear.


The answer was; of course, "you’re out"


But you will have heard a gentle voice exclaim


Well played, sir, you've been chosen for a higher game."
 - Roger Brittenden

PHMS Coaching 



L: Jeremy Pulikodan of Liston College with his new Coach Robert O'Donnell 



I have just completed our second session with Jeremy and he has a very good skill set to work with.

He could be a very good player.” (Coach: Robert O’Donnell) 



De La Salle College

Dynamic head of sport (and coach fo the 1st XV forwards) Helen Annafjeh is trying to resurrect the De La Salle College's cricket programme. The 1st XI plays in the 1B T20 competition which they won this year and are hoping to progress to the 1A competition in Term 4.

We were happy to provide some of our donated gear and look forward to supporting the school further. 









Papatoetoe CC

As part of the gear distribution programme, we recently delivered five bags of new and used gear to the Papatoetoe CC. Coach Garry Wood is very active in the South Auckland school landscape. Spearheaded by Garry, the club is in contact with over 20 schools in the area, and hosts the after school competition Blitz cricket which has a T14 format and is increasingly popular.

The QSCC this year donated $3,000 to the Blitz programme by paying a small sum for umpires of the games throughout the season. 

Being the hub for South Auckland cricket, the school also hosts the primary school Hooked on Cricket initiative, the nationwide programme that has become the key funding project for the QSCC.

We are keen to continue supporting Garry and the club who are both doing a great job for low decile youth cricket. 

Gear Drive 

Thanks to the generosity of Players Cricket, the NZCPA, Parnell CC and Cornwall CC. We have received a substantial amount of new and used gear for re-distribution. We compiled a catalogue of available gear which was then snapped up. This will migrate into an online shopping function going forward.

These are the lucky recipients of some of that gear - part of Kelstons 1st XI team.

L-R: Duane Mann, Sport and Business Manager at Kelston Boys High School. Sean Playle, Ethan Lythe-Brown and Kennedy Limpus. Sean and Ethan are both Year 13 prefects. Sean is captain of the 1st XI team. Kennedy is Year 11.
