From the Archives - Opening of the New Ground Part 3!

6 months ago By Mark Sampson

The 3rd in a series of 4 photos, from the opening game played on the new ground.

This photo comes with the tossing of the coin to start the game by captain Geof Shaw against the Presidents XI.

Looking on are Alf Butler, President Hon. George Seymour, Captain Geof Shaw and Rear Admiral Sherbrooke VC.

Another classic unseen photograph to add to the history of the club.
