The Milestones at BUCCC Continue with Darren Earp to Play Game 300 This Weekend

Darren Earp discusses his upcoming 300th game for BUCCC

Burwood Uniting Canterbury posted the following text about Darren Earp's 300th game on their Facebook Page:
'A Club legend, Darren has achieved it all on the field. As a batsman, he’s scored over 9,000 runs with 15 hundreds, most of those in the 1st XI. Some say he is getting better with age, evidenced by a career high score of 201 last season. He has also been very handy with the ball, with nearly 200 wickets at an average of 16 and a career best of 7/19 (also achieved last season).
It is team success Darren is most proud of though. Amongst his 3 Club premierships, Darren was the only player to play in both the 2000/01 and 2017/18 Burt Premiership Teams, a remarkable achievement. Off the field, Darren has served for long periods on the committee, primarily as apparel manager, and is famous for only ever bringing lamingtons for afternoon tea.'
