Carey Grammar, Bulleen, Victoria

 

Carey1We like the size and solidity of this scoreboard.

We like the club colours.

We like the clear numbers.

We like the Welcome message.

We like ‘Smoke Free School’. (But we reckon if you were going to have a smoke, behind the scoreboard could be a good spot.)

We like the naming of the scoreboard.

We presume the scoreboard is named after the cricketer (highest score, 268 at the MCG against Pakistan). But we’d be happy to be corrected if the scoreboard is indeed named after, say, a teacher, or a student, or a scoreboard attendant.

  1. I can confirm this scoreboard is named after Graham Yallop, test cricketer, who was an old boy of the school and a member of Carey’s first XI premiership team in 1970. The scoreboard was erected for the opening of the oval in 1963 and was named the Graham Yallop scoreboard in 1979.
