Club Champion

W H H (Bill) Costelloe Shield

Bill Costelloe was one of the most significant figures in Hampton’s long history. He joined the club when it reformed after the First World War and remained a force as both a player and administrator for the next 30 years. He was a fine cricketer in his own right having captained the 1st XI for a number of seasons and winning the 1st XI batting and bowling averages several times, including the double in 1937-38 and 1938-39. 

However, he is probably best remembered as Hampton’s foremost administrator of that era. He served as President of the club for many years but also filled numerous other roles including curator, social organiser, correspondent, association delegate and selector. He was the cornerstone of the club for over a quarter of a century.
