This week Anthony Quon will become the 18th player in the 113-year history of the Hampton Cricket Club to receive the John Wintle Medal for playing 300 games.
Debuting in 1991, Anthony (First XI Cap 458) has been an outstanding contributor both on and off the field throughout his 30-year association with the Hampton Cricket Club. Jim Kenny, in his book, 100 Years at the Hampton Cricket Club, describes Anthony as having given “enormous service to Hampton on Committee and in cricket management roles (Secretary 02-03, 03-04 & 04-05) as well as being a consistent performer on the field as a tough opening batsman and a fine gloveman.” Anthony also coordinated the junior Milo programme during his tenure as Secretary and his overall contribution has been recognised by his appointment to the prestigious office of Life Membership.
As a batsman, Anthony has accumulated 4,875 runs for Hampton as well as having taken 222 catches and 49 stumping’s. These performances have seen him awarded the Len Manzie Award for the outstanding wicket keeper on seven occasions. In addition, Anthony has been selected multiple times in the Mike McLean Team of the Year, culminating with his selection in the 2000’s Team of the Decade.
Anthony has enjoyed team success at the highest level being a multiple First XI premiership player in 2006-7 and 2012-13, as well as being a member of the 2010-11 and 2015-16 Second XI flags.
We wish Quonny all the very best for his 300th game this Saturday.
