Ernest Crossan made his first-class debut for the state in December 1937 against Victoria at the MCG and went on to finish with four first-class appearances. At the time of his death he was the last remaining New South Wales player to have represented the state before World War II. David Gilbert, the chief executive of Cricket New South Wales, said Crossan's death marked the end of an era. "He was the last link to an era of great players, including former Australian representatives, Stan McCabe, Bill O'Reilly, Bert Oldfield, Sid Barnes, Arthur Chipperfield and Jack Fingleton, who all played alongside Ern in his debut match in 1937."
