Thanks to Crabby’s wonderful mother whom said “ get out of the house and play some sport” he chose rugby league and found that the Dragons (HAHAHAHA) didn’t need him so he thought I give cricket (outdoor) a try and loved it at the age of 13.
Stephen Continued to play throughout his school years into adulthood and was very fortunate to play at a great club “Nulla” and was in the winning side who achieved 6 first grade premierships and become a life member of that club.
In the mideighties Crabby was playing for Kempsey Inter-District Team and was fortunate to be selected for the Mid North Coast under 24’s side that won the carnival which was held on the Hastings.
In 1986 the local Kempsey Indoor Cricket centre opened and he thought to keep himself fit and sharpen his skills (boy did they need it) he’d would give it a go!
From that point forward he continued to play regularly and become a member of the Kempsey Indoor Cricket Super League Team where he continues to play.
In 1996 Crabby trailed for the NSW Blues over 30’s Masters, being one of the successful players who travelled to the Australian National Titles which were played at the “Parklands Indoor Centre” on the Gold Coast.
