SERVICES CRICKET IMPORTANT SAYS ARTHUR MAILEY [Newspaper Article] — Army News — 28 December 1941
SERVICES CRICKET IMPORTANT SAYS &nbsp; &nbsp; ARTHUR MAILEY The N.S.W. Cricket Associa- tion should become military- minded and place its very efficient office staff at the disposal of Army sport," declared famous ex-international cricketer, Arthur Mailey, in a special article in the Sydney Daily Telegraph last week. &nbsp; "At the moment, cricket in the Services is probably stronger than the game played by civilians. "Army cricket suffers because it lacks the organising machinery of the Cricket Association. &nbsp; "In addition, it is more essential that the Services be considered be- fore civilians. "Umpires and grounds, two of the greatest needs in organising sport, are already mobilised. "In England, Services cricket is very popular. "Army requirements have already cut into the ranks of grade cricket. "Soon few, if any, will play regu- larly for their clubs."
