Redlands Tigers History

The Redlands Tigers have been in the Brisbane Grade competition for over 120 years. Starting off as Woollongabba, before moving to Langlands Park as Eastern Suburbs District Cricket Club in the 1930's and on to Bottomley Park in 1970. Easts then moved to its current home at Wellington Point in 1995 becoming Easts-Redlands. The club now plays in the Qld Cricket grade competition under the Redlands Tigers name.





     Our No 1 field Peter Burge Oval, was named after our best known player who had a remarkable career with Queensland, making 91 first-class appearances in a career that spanned from 1952-53 through to 1967-68. He captained Queensland on 28 occasions and was named in the state's Cricket Team of the Century. The Burge family also has a long association with the club and the Redlands district. The Burge family has a long association with the club and indeed the Redlands as Peter's grandparents once owned Whepsted House.

Fred Kratzmann a long standing member in the Redlands Cricket arena, was instrumental in the early stages of Wellington Point cricket development and has our No. 2 oval named after him.

Ron Field was a local councilor who helped provide many cricket facilities in the Redlands. Ron loved cricket and his work and efforts have been recognised by having our No. 3 oval named after him.

 

 Redland Tigers are extremely proud of our facilities & the club won the Best Grounds for five consecutive years but that does not mean that the club can stop investing in & improving on what we have. As a club, we have a lot of plans to grow & improve so we can continually attract more players & spectators to our sport & club

  
  Redlands Tigers are very proud of our history & the pathway it has created for our players to go on grade cricket to represent Qld & Australia.

And in more recent years to present day; Redlands Tigers players like Shane Watson, Damien McNamara, Ryan LeLoux, Greg Moeller, Alex Kemp & Simon Milenko.
