The Passing of Stan Rowland

It is with great sadness we note the recent passing of Carnegie Cricket Club life member and fine cricketer Stan Rowland at the age of 85 after a short illness.

Stan played at Carnegie from 1946 until his retirement in 1981. Most notably, Stan was a member of the legendary 1955-56 VJCA (later VTCA) Senior Division premiership side. Less well known is that he was also a member of the 1971-72 VJCA South B premiership side, which came during a tumultuous time for the club when dedicated members such as Stan helped the club transition into a new era.
Stan attended the very first of the club’s annual Past Players’ Days, which the club established upon its 90th anniversary in season 2002-03. He made the trip from his longtime home in Pambula Beach, NSW, to join us at Koornang Park, a mark of his loyalty and dedication to our club.
The committee and members of the Carnegie Cricket Club extend sympathies to Stan’s family, in particular his wife Win and sons Paul and Peter.
Vale Stanley John Rowland.
