Club Records

Here are the best statistics by Staff players, as recorded in the scorebooks. Sometimes, particularly for bowling, the scorecards are not complete, so it may be that some outstanding performances have gone unnoticed. There are also no records for 1970.

These records are updated to the start of the 2022 season
