George Horwood flanked by new life members George Wasyluk and Neil Boyle
George would have to be one of the keenest and strongest supporters of "Baulko". He first played for the Under 16 team in 1934 when he was "not quite 12 years of age". George opened the bowling and batted at No. 4. He continued to play for the Under 16 team until 1938.
George joined the Australian Army A.I.F. in 1941 and served until April 1946.
He recommenced playing in 1946 and was a member of 2 premiership teams - A Reserve in 1952/1953 and A Grade in 1953/1954. Some highlights of George's association with the club include:
- playing A Grade until 1966/1967;
In 1968 Cumberland grade club (now Parramatta District Cricket Club) were lucky enough to have George and Bill's services for 4 years to play with and foster the younger members of the district club
George was involved with clearing of the new Ted Horwood Oval in 1963 and supplied chain saws to clear the trees.
He is a true club man who summed up his feelings in saying "Being a member and playing with this fine old club has been a major part of my life, making many fine friends, regretfully some deceased - Bill Anderson, Cleaver Lothian, Frank Stretton, John Thompson and Fred Williams. I miss them all".
George, I think you have said it all, and to have played with the B6 team in 1992/1993 when they were short demonstrates your love for the game and your true club spirit.
