Pearce Cup

Eastern Suburbs continued on their impressive run in the Pearce Cup running out winners in the 2007/08 final against North City. This is the seventh year in succession that East’s have won the Pearce Cup.

The 2007/2008 season saw Easts finish the round robin phase 1.45 points ahead of qualifiers North City. This meant that we had to at least draw the game against North City in the three day final played 21-23 March 2008.

After rolling North City for 181 in their first innings Roger Fouhy 6-52, Easts batted solidly to amass 385 all out John Peters 110, Lance Dry 70*, Robert Sewell 65 and Phil Parker 35 – it should also be noted that Lance Dry and Roger Fouhy had a parthership of 89 for the last wicket.

In their second dig North City ground out 234-9 – Roger Fouhy 5-98 for a match total of 11-150. This left Easts to get 31 runs to secure the victory – which were polished off in 5.4 overs for the loss of 3 wickets.

This is the first time in over one hundred years that a club has won seven consecutive Premier Mens championships in Wellington.

North City  181 & 234-9 ( Roger Fouhy 6-52 & 5-98 )

Easts         385 & 32-3 (Phil Parker 35, John Peters 110, Robert Sewell 65, Lance Dry 70* )
