At the recent Annual Dinner three more inductees were announced into the St George Hall Of Fame. The Hall Of Fame can be viewed at the new Norm O'Neill Cricket Training Facility and is presently represented by the first sixteen inductees from the club's first fifty years of First Grade cricket.
The criteria for selection to the Hall Of Fame is strictly on field performance based but as you will read, Ray has had a remarkable sporting career on and off the field.
Australian pace bowler Rodney Hogg caught by Ray Tozer bowled Brian Rhodes NSW 2ND XI V Victoria MCG. January 1972.
As a youngster Ray also played representative soccer in the Sutherland Shire and also eventually earned selection in the NSWCHS First team.
In 2000 Ray was awarded an Australian Sports Medal for services to Sport and in 2005 the NSW Sports Administrator award from the NSW Sports Federation which consisted of Ninety Three affiliated sports.
An amazing career indeed.
The Club would like to take this opportunity to extend its heartfelt congratulations and appreciation to Ray for his achievements and service to the St George District Cricket Club.
