A milestone that is unlikely to be beaten in the future

Lange Dry

The Mighty Easts captain ’Lance Dry’ has now taken ’800 wickets’ in Wellington Club Cricket in the period 1993 to 2019.

Lance achieved this with his 3 wickets in the crucial game against Johnsonville on Saturday where Easts had to win, and win well which they did, to qualify for the one day final of the Ewan Chatfield Trophy in 2019.

Lance is the only Wellington Club player to have achieved 800 wickets in the last 54 years !!!!

He has also captained the side in winning 15 Pearce Cup Finals out of 17 attempts as well as NZ Cricket National Club Champions in 2016 & 2017.

Congratulations Lance – an AWESOME ACHIEVEMENT !!!!!
