Can you enlighten me?

Comments: Found the site while searching for SA Schools (Nuffied Week) cricket records. A most interesting site and have always enjoyed watching cricket at St Georges, right back to the time when MCC played EP and Frank Tyson had Brian Dold ducking the 'bumpers'. No helmets way back then, only the peak of your cap to take some pace off the ball. They were not called 'bouncers' in those days either. Hope to visit your cricket museum as soon as I can now that I know about it.

Comments: Still trying to find out more about John Brewer who played (according to his obituary) a leading part in playing tennis in the late 1800 and was tied up with the East Province Tennis Association. I think there may be a cup in his memory, but can find no trace of his name anywhere. The book on the history of the Association shows that his daughters had their reception in 1864 at the club. Not sure if it is yours, but this seems to be the only old tennis club in PE.RegardsWumf (nee Brewer)

Comments: I was on Google trying to find my husbands sister Carol (Nikki)nee Howard ex PE who relocated to Canada many years ago, and came upon the site. Reading some of the comments was quite nostalgic. I spent many happy years at St Georges and by all accounts so did my husband. Although we did not know each other then. He was a Grey boy and I was a Holy Rosary girl. He went on to play rugby for Blues I think. But one way or another we spent many happy hours at St Georges park. I also know that his mom played cricket, and tennis there, and I took my babies there. Such a great tragedy that it is no longer safe to just stroll through the park.

Comments: Can you please tell me why there is no smoking area at t.georges. Surely non smokers can have the choice of all the stands and smokers can sit on the grass areas. The grass areas are in the open air so should not annoy non smokers. When we come to cricket we also want to see the game, not have to go outside to smoke. Even pubs and restaurants have smoking areas. My friends and I have not been to the last few games because of this. Many other locals I have met in the pubs agree they do not go now either. We watch on tv at home. Surely if you want the stadium to be full every game you will try to make everyone happy.
Editor's Reply : Take it up with Parliament if you don't like the laws of the land. I for one am relieved there is no smoking. It is a filthy habit.

Comments: When I was PRO at EP Cricket in the early 90's, Shaun van Eck and I discussed opening an EP Cricketing museum. I mentioned this to Dave Emslie, but unfortunately it didn't happen until long after I left.I see still no Kepler Wessels, Geoff Dakin etc under personalities. Kepler the captain to take SA back into international cricket, and Geoff Dakin an honorary member of the MCC. Geoff was largely responsible for all negotiations re SA back into world cricket. Please put them into the personalities profile.

Comments: Thank you so much for the information on the Horse Memorial/Fountain. I have an old photograph of it that my late father took (probably in 1949) and I had been wondering for years where it was taken. Fortunately I had some idea it was South African and I finally googled it this morning and found it. I was thrilled to find so much information about it.

It does look, however, that we shall have to decline as only an hour or so before hearing from Alex I accepted another offer. Should this fall through I will return to Alex and maybe we will meet on the field!All good wishesDavid Gaunt

My name was then Linda Buckingham and I was a pupil at Holy Rosary until end 1961, living in Summerstrand. I have spent many happy hours in that pool both competing and just for fun. Does anyone else remember these things. Water Ballet making HRC in the water as a finale for the school gala, cake in the tea room called 'squashed fly cake' and coke bottles with cork in the tops. When we picked the cork there was an American President underneath. Christmas is always a time for reflection and my Christmas's were always sunny in South Africa. Really worth while site. I send warmest greetings to all of you who read this.
Editor's Reply : Hello Linda. Mrs Fugard's tearoom? Of course I remember it and as an old "Grey boy" I remember going to watch the girls do their thing with the water ballet. I think you are referring to a "rock bun" and yes,they are still a South African favourite.

Comments: I now live in Los Angeles California, but I grew up spending my summers at St. Georges. As a Grey Boy I worked the change rooms for all EP Home games and later as a High School Boy I worked the Scoreboard. I was there seated in the meembers stand on March 6, 1982 when that picture was taken that you showed and it just brought back so many memories. I had the priviledge of playing on the St. Georges pitch in two matches, and also when I was a UPE 1st Reserve Team Member got to train in the indoor nets with the likes of Philip Amm, Dave Callaghan, Adrian Birrel and Kepler Wessels. I was there when EP beat Transvaal in the classic 100th Anniversary Currie Cup Final. Served Dinner at the Banquet to greats like Graham Pollock and John Reid. I remember taking Mike Van Vuuren his Fanta Orange , sitting and talking in the players box with Kenny Watson and Ezra Mosely. I was coached by David Capel and Dave Callaghan, but most importantly St. Georges has a special place in my heart because it was there that my parents met watching a PE City Soccer game in 1968. St. Georges is the best Cricket ground in the world as far as I am concerned and I thank you for this aweome web site that alllows me to share this history with freinds over here who are becomming interested in Cricket. The World Cup has been tremendous to watch and I am praying that South Africa makes it through to the super 6 round as the 3rd team in pool B so that they can play Australia at St. Georges....what a game that will be.

Comments: Rich history about the establishment of the St. Georges Park Cricket ground. I never knew how & when the St George Park was founded but now I know & what I always love when I'm watching cricket there is the vibe, the atmosphere & not forgetten the band always entertaing the fans even if the game has reached its dull moments.

Comments: I truly hope that this club will be kept in the manner it deserves. Hearing that bats, trophys ets might get lost is just hairraising. This ground has to be the most important ground in SA and we should all do someting to keep it that way. I happen to have been one of the first woman to ever step into the ladies bar at Crusaders when pubs was first opened to ladies. It happened to be a good idea and the men could stay longer without mommy breathing down their necks.Keep up the good work.

Comments: An ex-pat now working for the Melbourne Cricket Club, hoping to visit the museum on a recent trip. Couldn't get in contact with personal at SGP but my father ran into Simon B, a dear old friend and curator of the SGP cricket museum, who generously took time to show us the cricketing heritage held by SGP. It is both vast and historically significant. Simon has gone an amazing effort to preserve and share SA cricket heritage with the community. It would be great to see a permanent museum space set up, to display more of the significant pieces Simon has in his vast collection, where local and international fans can readily access the collection through tours at the ground or museum opening hours, and share in the long heritage South Africa has in the sport of cricket.

A brilliant game! Watched many cricket matches there too, including some incredible night games! Also helped install new telephone system and train staff at St G's in early 90's. Have had some great parties at Crusaders... etc etc. Feel as if I grew up with the Park - thanks for all the great memories!Also, a big THANK YOU for helping to get Louis & Andy Milne in touch with Mum & Dad (Hugh & Ann) they posted a request on this guestbook for info - we had a brilliant reunion and now keep in touch regularly.Anyone remembering the Maxwell's from the good old days - we are all doing well, Ian & family still live in PE, Mum, Dad, my daughter Kaley, and myself live near Oxford in England. Brilliant site, well done!Kind regards,Carol

But FYI: In the early 70's, as young kids (myself just +- 5), my 4 brothers and I, with my dad used to have the stadium cleaned on Sunday mornings. He worked for Window & Office cleaners then. We enjoyed the outing because we got to keep the money and toys that fell through the spaces in the wooden seats. Lots more to say too little space.

It is a wonerful Park and I miss being there. It would be great if there were more photos of the Park on the site. I love the Horse Monument, and hope that there is water in it at present.

My brother Rhys Jones used to play for one of PE City's Reserve football sides. He was also a good cricketer and played PECC. He was tragically killed aged 17 in a car crash in 1973 outside Kingwilliamstown on the way to play in a curtain raiser for PE City v East London City. Often wondered what happened to survivors of the crash - Basil Nel, Bobby Grantham and Barry Howells. I know Barry was seriously injured.

Comments: My girlfriend and I live in South London (England). I am English, she is a PE chick who moved over here years ago. We spend three weeks a year in South Africa. I love the city of Port Elizabeth and have become very fond of St Georges Ground - hence my interest in PECC. I am an aging fast bowler and a member of Surrey County Cricket Club. I enjoy using this web site and am always keen to see how PECC are doing. I will next be in PE the first 3 weeks in February 2006. Sadly I will miss the internationals by then but I'd like to know if PECC are due to play at St George in that time. The last time I was at St George I saw Ashwell Prince Smash Darren Gough over mid wicket for four as SA beat England with 5 balls left in the game. It was a good game - but could have been a different storey if Marcus Trescothick had not dropped Graeme Smith on 20 who went on to get a ton. That night I was one mute English man amoungst thousands of very vocal South Africans. I do wish PECC all the very best for this season and I hope to catch them when I'm over there. Keep up the good work on this web site.PS: fingers crossed The Proteas smash the Aus'

We used to turn the handles to ring up the scores and if a mistake was made a phonecall came through from the scorers to tell us of a mistake.

I was wondering whether the Herald published the names of the people that met the Royals on that day, and if so, where I could obtain a copy.Graham Schafer
Editor's Reply : Send a copy to me. I'll see if I can find the original caption for you. Also, date please. Send to imarkman@johnnicec.co.za I would love to place the photo on the web as well, if that's OK with you.

Comments: Lived and worked in PE for quite some time. St Georges is still the best test venue for the game. Let's have little more on the club rugby history of the game. I played quite a few matches at the ground (something that quite a few people find hard tro believe-how can you play club rugby on a test cricket venue...I have given up trying to explain) A great site that brought back some great memories. Thanks
Editor's Reply : Crusaders don't have very good records, in fact, I don't think they have much at all. Trouble is time. This is primarily a cricket site and even though I love rugby, I don't have the time to do rugby reseach as well. Sorry about that.
