Bowler, Cricketer & Footballer – Nigel Kendall

Nigel Kendall and his wife Annette are both members of the CGA’s lawn bowls team. The team plays regular matches against teams from other APS schools and the Melbourne Cricket Club (MCC) during the summer season (October to March) each year, culminating in the annual APS Past Students’ Bowls Tournament in late March. Nigel attended Caulfield Grammar School from 1946 to 1955, following his brother David, who attended from 1943 to 1953. During the early 1950s Caulfield achieved considerable success in sport, winning a number of Associated Grammar Schools of Victoria (AGSV) premierships. Nigel was a member of the premiership cricket teams in 1953 and 1954 and of the premiership football teams in 1954 and 1955. The 1955 football team was one of the strongest to ever represent the School, inclu...

Lawn Bowls Club Report – July 2020

The 2019/20 bowls season commenced in October with monthly games played between Old Melburnians, Old Scotch, Old Wesley, MCC and Caulfield Grammarians. These games were played at the MCC Bowling Club greens at Swinburne Avenue and Glen Street in Hawthorn.  All games were competitive and played in a good spirit with the bowlers enjoying the traditional MCC Bowls Club afternoon tea of sandwiches and scones. The CGA team played consistently throughout the season with good performances from Bev Allen, Chris Warne, Graeme Lamb and Tony Bagnall. Regrettably, the last two games of the season, including the annual APS Past Students’ Bowls Tournament, had to be cancelled due to COVID-19. I would like to thank all bowlers for their efforts throughout the season and Tony Bagnall, in particular, for t...

Class of 1985 35-Year Reunion

Around 30 class members attended the 35-year reunion for the Class of 1985, held in the Archer Room at the Botanical Hotel in South Yarra on Friday 13 March. A number of those in attendance travelled from interstate, including Paul Chambers, Andrew Cox, Jeremy Morton, Tim Steen and Nigel McNay. Everyone enjoyed a relaxed evening catching up on current news and reminiscing about schooldays. Drinks and finger food were served. The Archer Room provided a perfect venue for such a gathering and the CGA looks forward to using the Botanical Hotel in the future for off-site reunions. The Class of 1985 was the last class to graduate from the School that included only males and only students from Caulfield Campus. One of the highlights of the 1985 school year was the School’s first win in the APS Bo...

Lawn Bowls Report – June 2019

Our 2018/19 Lawn Bowls season concluded with the annual APS Past Students Bowls Tournament at the Glen Waverley Bowls Club on Sunday 31 March. Prior to this tournament, we had enjoyed regular competitive matches (one a month) from October through to March. At least a dozen Grammarians represented us in each of these matches, the CGA team showing good form and recording a number of wins. Our opposition included teams from Old Scotch, Old Melburnians, Old Wesley, MCC and the Melbourne Bowling Club. We were pleased to welcome five new bowlers to our ranks this season (Jan Geyer, Ted Geyer, Dean Harding, Ken Dowling and Daryl Moran), who all add strength to our team. Eight of the APS schools entered teams of 16 bowlers in the APS tournament. Our team started magnificently with each of our four...

CGA Cricket Report – May 2018

The Caulfield Grammarians/NCG Cricket Club enjoyed another successful season on the field, with two of our three summer teams qualifying for finals. Our senior eleven, promoted to Division 1 of the MCC Club XI competition following our Division 2 premiership last season, performed strongly to make the finals in Division 1 for the first time in 10 years. The team, led by co-captains Cameron Scholten and Harshil Shah, had a slow start to the season with a heartbreaking loss to Old Trinity on the final ball of the match, despite a marvellous 96 from Prathmesh Yadav. From that point the team started to regroup with strong wins against last year’s premiers Old Geelong and also a return win at home against Old Trinity. The return to the side of Matthew Scholten and Cameron Dickson, and the...
