Keeping score

Scan000133 (Small)

The scoreboard at Drummoyne Oval was first used for a cricket game on the 7 January 1961. At the time it was described as ‘the best suburban-ground scoreboard in the metropoltan area’.

It was designed by local architect Stan J. Nichols and cost £4600 to build. Originally scores were changed by hand but it has since been upgraded with an electronic display.

Made of prestressed concrete, it will certainly be keeping score at Drummoyne Oval for many years to come.
