Richardson Park in South Perth and sport is very much a bit of Perth.
Although we never played for South Perth, this was the nearest practice facility and fifty years ago my brother and I would pedal our bikes down here and with out bat and ball and stumps. He was pretty swift and he would bowl at me till he hit me. Then we would get on our bikes and ride home.
There were only rudimentary club rooms here in those days.
Here a cricket match at South Perth Cricket Club’s home ground.
A ball from a left arm quick passing harmlessly down the leg side and through to the keeper. My apologies to those of my readers who have not been initiated into the subtleties of the greatest sport of all.
