Profile

John Cole Reedman, born on October 9, 1867, died at Adelaide on March 25, aged 56. He was an effective but not a graceful batsman, a useful change bowler, and a really great fieldsman, being a sure catch, covering much ground and having a splendid return to the wicket. He never toured England, but for some years he enjoyed a big reputation in his own country. For South Australia, which State he captained on a few occasions, he scored 113 v. Victoria at Adelaide in March, 1894, and took thirteen wickets for 149 runs (seven for 54 and six for 95) against the same side in 1904-5. At Sydney in March, 1899, when playing for The Rest v. The Australian Eleven, he made 51 in his first innings and 108 in his second. On his only appearance in a Test match he scored 17 and 4: that was at Sydney in 1894-5, when England, after going in against a total of 586, won by 10 runs. For many years Reedman coached at St. Peter's College, Adelaide, and captained the North Adelaide C.C. He was also in quite the front rank as a footballer. By occupation he was a postman.
