Vale Tim Perry

Published by:

Today we have received the news that Tim Perry, a Northbridge CC legend, Life Member, president, vice president and club patron, not to mention the player who has taken the most ever wickets for Northbridge as a club in it’s 99 year history, passed away on the 20th December 2017 at the age of 87.

For those new to the club, they may not have met Tim. When I first played for Northbridge over 10 years ago, he was the friendly face that would great us at grounds around the North Shore, where he would turn up and score for the A Reserve side. He had a great rapport with the playing group, and was still serving on the committee even after his playing retirement. One of my favourite memories of Tim was when he came down to watch a Semi-Final match in 2014, and we managed to snap the photo of him with our then youngest player Michael Vamvakaris, which signified the young and the old of the ‘Bridge.

I last saw him at Eastwood when the A Grade side was playing there in 2016-17, where we had a chat about dealing with the fun of running the club, and the sometimes drama that can go with it and how he dealt with it in the day, and I know I will remember that chat for a long time.

Tim first played for Northbridge in 1955, and continued to be actively involved in the club all the way up to 2010, whilst still either looking out for, or getting his daughter to find out about team selections and match information all the way through to this season.

On behalf of all of us at Northbridge, we pass on our condolences to the Perry family. Tim epitomizes what the club is about, and it’s a sad day to learn of his passing.

New and Returning Players for 2017-18 – Register Now!

Published by:



Season 2017-18 is fast approaching, and this season we are looking at entering up to 6 teams in the NSCA and NCU competitions. Northbridge is the oldest (and best!) club in the NSCA, and this is our 99th season which will see is return as the largest club in the association. We cater for players of all levels, with teams in the Turf competition and Hybrid (1 and 2 day matches) competitions. We encourage socialisation between grades, with players known to have started in the lower grades finishing the season in the top grade whilst also making life long friendships along the way.

We have access to one of the best training facilities, though not on the north shore but at Sydney Boys High, where you can roll the arm over or even spend time on having a dig against a bowling machine. With qualified coaches on our books we can help get you the improvement in your cricket that you need to progress up the grades. Training occurs on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9:30pm.

After each match players gather at our sponsors establishment, Billy Barry’s Hotel, for a few beverages and sometimes a meal where players can describe to each other the events of the days play.

So what are you doing? Register now, and one of our friendly members will be in touch with you as soon as possible!

Season 2016/17 Fees & Player Charter

Published by:


The Fees for the 2016/17 season are now payable for all players who have registered.

For this season, the early bird discount is valid up until the 26th September, so be sure to get in whilst the discount is on.

Head over to the Fees page for more information.

We have also introduced a new Player Charter, which demonstrates the expected behaviour of all Northbridge cricketers this season. There will be a crack down at an NSCA level on player behaviour this year, however we would like to take the first step in documenting how we expect those who represent Northbridge will behave. Make sure you are familiar with the details, as it is a requirement to have read the charter in order to play with the club moving forward. Head to the Player Charter for more information.
