The Kingsville Cricket Club would not be around without Peter Hardeman.
When the club was established in 1956, as Kingsville Baptist Cricket Club, Peter was one of the foundation members as a player.
He joined the club committee in 1984 as Secretary and held that position until 2009. From 2009 until the present he took over the role of Treasurer.
In his role as Secretary Peter was the sole contact between the club and the local Council, aside from all the other tasks as Secretary. He still carries out the lion’s share of this liaison role to the Council, as well as filling in ground reports (part of the risk management requirements from the Council) every week.
Aside from his duties on the committee Peter has served as a Coach/team Manager/Scorer for many of our junior sides over the years.
Peter also has a number of activities he performs to help out the senior sides including marking the boundary line every Thursday evening while training is on, making sure all the teams have their match balls and match fee books for Saturday, scorer/manager for whichever team needs it, gets the afternoon tea ready (and washes up afterwards) and serves behind the bar/canteen when needed.
Peter has done all of this over the years while juggling family, work (although he has been retired for a while now) and/or committee roles on the Western Suburbs Churches & Community Cricket Association.
Peter is an unstoppable force and is truly the Beating Heart of Kingsville Cricket Club.
