What a great honour for Warren and his family. Some may say that it is well overdue, but there is no doubt that Warren is a worthy recipient.

While a fast bowler at hear, Warren grew into his batting in his later years to and has passed 5,000 runs to sit 35th on our all time run scorers liust
Affectionately known as “Wazza” , there is not a player at the Manly Warringah Waratahs over the last 30+ years that has not had contact with Warren in some way. His passion for our club, quirkiness in nature, and love of the game of cricket have left an endearing impression on us all.
We hope that as many of you as possible are able to join Warren and the rest of the club in celebrating this momentous occasion.
