Jack Marsh History Lecture

The Jack Marsh History Lecture is designed to encourage curiosity and research into the history of our grounds.

The lecture series is named in honour of the indigenous NSW fast bowler Jack Marsh whose promising first-class career was cut short by accusations of ‘throwing’ that many believe were inspired by racism. The annual one-hour lecture is a must for cricket lovers, sport fans and history buffs. Read about Jack Marsh
