Tim Sargent – Legend Status
Congratulations to Tim Sargent who has been inducted as the 7th Club Legend in our almost 100 year history.
Tim has been an outstanding on-field contributor to our Club for 27 seasons. In that time he has achieved a high level of excellence. Tim began with Clarence Park in the 1991-1992 season and won the A Grade bowling trophy in his first year with 30 wickets. Following a season of district cricket at Adelaide you returned to our club when Richmond and Clarence Park merged in season 1993-1994. Tim has gone on to take more than 750 wickets putting you fourth on the all time list.
Tim’s best bowling figures are 9/13 and in 2017/18 he took a career best 45 wickets in the season. Sarge has maintained a career economy rate of 2.7 and a bowling average of 17.
