This weekend amazingly marks the 200th 1st XI game for Knox Gardens veteran spearhead Adam 'Wilba' Wild.

Wilba is one of the most decorated players in the history of the club and is still performing at a very high standard.
Taking over 500 wickets and snaring 11 bowling averages in his time at the club his stats are going to be very hard to match let alone 
pass in the near future. Known for his attacking and somewhat different bowling action he is a revered competitor around the FTGDCA 
as opposition teams know they are up for a contest especially the top order batsmen when venturing down to Knox Gardens Reserve.

Adam becomes just the second player in the club's history to reach the 200 game milestone in the 1st XI after club stalwart Rhys Marget. 
The two of them are also our most recent 1st XI premiership captains.

Over the next two weeks during this rounds 2 day match against Upper Ferntree Gully we will be looking back at some of the great achievements 
and sharing with our members and supporters the moments that have shaped Adam's contribution to this club.

We will be holding our monthly match reports and BBQ next Saturday November 12 at the club to celebrate Wilba's 200 fantastic games!
