Stuart Mathlin C.C.N.S.W. Golf Trophy

The Stuart Mathlin Memorial Trophy is an engraved cricket bat, named after the late Stuart Mathlin. Our former Golf President David Dickinson writes:

“Stuart was a regular in the Cricketers’ Club and was a regular player with the golfers. He died about 18 years ago now on the evening of the Riverside Oaks game. His brother found him when he went to pick him up for the game. As a cricketer he was the first grade captain of Roseville, opening bat or first drop and the wicketkeeper. He actually played in the first ever official game I umpired.”

Riverside Oaks was traditionally the location for the Stuart Mathlin Memorial Trophy, although last year it was held at St Michael’s in Little Bay. The competition is usually held in August or September each year. The winners are recorded below.
