The Andrew Bond Memorial Trophy

A. E. S. (Andrew) Bond (R 1955) was elected to the Lynxes in the year he left the school, where he had been a brilliant wicket keeper. In that same school season he assisted leg spinner John Townsend (CS 1956) in taking 58 wickets with a total of 29 victims (10 catches and 19 stumpings).

 

Andrew played for the Lynxes for over 35 years and was instrumental in introducing the fixture with The Racqueteers. His personal record is as follows:

 

84 Innings (7 not out)

1933 runs (9 scores of 50 or over; top score 83)

Average 25.10

 

The records show he even bowled 4 overs (1 maiden) taking 1 wicket for 14 runs.

 

He sadly died in 2000 and the Lynxes decided to award a trophy in his name to the batsman scoring the most runs in the week. The Trophy is inscribed:

 

“Andrew Bond Memorial Trophy – Batting”
