PETER HOWES

After playing many seasons with Northern

Districts CC, Peter joined the 'Creek for the

1994-95 season and won the 4th Grade

fielding award. The front line wicket keeper of

the party, he usually plays in the Club's middle

grades and bats just before sundries. He

recently celebrated a mile-stone by recording

1000 nins - not in a season but the aggregate

over ten seasons. An administrator with the

Canberra Institute of Technology, and bom just

before the War, Peter was 46 when he made his

debut in first grade for Northern Districts.

GERARD OAKES

A right arm medium pace bowler, Gerard will

be one of the new-ball bowlers on tour. During

his eight seasons in senior cricket with the

Club he has played in all grades except 1st,

and has taken over 150 wickets at an average

of 15. With his batting average at just half

that of his bowling, Gerard will be keen to

\vag the tail' with a view to adding some

respectability to his batting. In his mid

twenties, Gerard is more often seen than

heard. He has obtained an Honours in History

from The Australian National University and is

currently working at the University.

KEITH PARKER

When 19, Keith's benevolence and club spirit

earned him the honour of life membership of

the Sports Club. As a medium pace bowler

with best figures of 7 for 22, his relatively

short career with the club has produced around

100 wickets at 16 apiece including a hat-trick.

An officer with the Australian Customs

Service, he is using the tour to signal his return

to regular cricket following several years'

absence. Fluent in Japanese, Keith introduced

cricket to Japan during one of his recent visits.

He is thought to be nearer thirty than forty.
