Our Legends 

International Players 

Dave Gilbert

29 August 1985 was a very proud day in the history of Epping Cricket when one of our own made his Test debut for Australia. Dave Gilbert had indeed scaled the heights to line up in an Ashes Test that day, having started his journey in September 1977 in our NDCA D Grade side.
Dave went on to represent Australia in 9 Tests. He also had a distinguished First Class career in Australia and England and went on to an even more distinguished career as a cricket administrator.

He is currently a match referee for Cricket Australia and has remained a loyal and active friend of the Club to this day. 


Gavin Robertson

Gavin Robertson became our second Test representative, debuting for Australia in Test Cricket in Chennai on 6 March 1998 and appeared in a further 3 Tests. He took 5 wickets for the game whilst scoring 57 in his first knock for the country. 

Gavin continued his involvement with Epping after retiring from playing, including stints as Club Coach, and regularly gives up his time to attend our Annual Dinner as MC.  Both Dave and Gavin are generous in acknowledging the role our Club played in their success and particularly the coaching and mentoring they received from our former President and stalwart, Graeme Kightley.

Gavin currently hosts Talkin Sport on 2SM.
