Tony Johnson becomes NSDCC's 45th Life Member

2020 Life Member Tony Johnson

At Friday’s 127th North Sydney District Cricket Club Annual General Meeting, Tony Johnson was unanimously voted to be the club’s 45th Life Member.

Tony’s association with the Bears began when his son, David (first grade cap 573), joined the Green Shield side. Tony took up the scorebook for the club, and was a constant in the scorer’s box until he stepped down after the 2012/13 season.

Tony introduced online scoring at the club – including having a monitor located outside the scorers' box on which players could check the game’s progress. Tony also contributed regular articles to the North Shore Times and Mosman Daily.

In more recent times Tony has been the club’s photographer, primarily at first grade, but also at other grades. Tony’s high quality images grace all our publications and media platforms and he never fails to provide each player with a portfolio of their images at season’s end.

Through great periods of change, Tony has been a bedrock of the club and a familiar face to many. He has given the club so much of his time and is a true lover a cricket. Tony’s other passions include National Parks and Steam Locomotives, and his tales of driving clear across the Eurasian landmass are truly remarkable.

As Tony says, his family comes first and the club is blessed to have Tony, Lyn and David as part of our family. Watch this space for another Johnson generation to possibly don the black and red in seasons to come.
