The Graham Clarke Memorial Scholarship is aimed at providing extra coaching to the most talented junior players at the Prospect District Cricket Club. The program will involve a number of individual coaching sessions with the best available coaches in South Australia.

The Prospect District Cricket Club has a proud history of producing outstanding cricketers who have gone on to play higher levels, and through this scholarship the club hopes to continue on this tradition.

Graham Clarke Cricketing History
Graham came to PDCC as a ten year old in 1951 and was selected in the SA State schoolboy team the next year. He commenced his ‘A’ grade career with Senior Colts at the Prospect District Cricket Club.

When the Salisbury (now Northern Districts) District Cricket Club entered the SACA ‘A’ Grade competition, Graham left Prospect, with the club’s blessing to become Salisbury’s first Captain/Coach. They achieved their first ‘A’ grade premiership under his guidance. Graham later returned to Prospect to become Club Coach for 3 seasons (1989-90 to 1991/92), winning the SACA Club Championship in season 1990/91.

He was considered by many keen students of the game to coming very close to being the best grade/ district cricketer of all time.

Due to Graham’s close affiliation between both Prospect and Salisbury, the management committees of both clubs decided to introduce ‘The Graham Clarke Memorial Cup’ to be played for each ‘A’ Grade season. Graham also had a real affinity with junior and country cricketers.
