A right-hand batsman, William Stephen Farrer, better known as Buster, was a product of Dale College. Representing his country at both cricket and hockey he also had colours for Border in tennis, bowls, golf and squash. In 1962 he was voted as one of five SA Cricket Annual players of the year. In 1968 he was voted as Border Sports Star of the year for his cricketing achievements and followed it up in 1971 with the same award, this time for hockey. Buster's major asset was his wonderful, unflustered temperament. Only having played in six Tests between 1961-62 and 1963-64, all against New Zealand, three in South Africa and three in New Zealand. In contrast his first-class career spanned 15 years in which he scored 12 hundreds and 22 fifties for an average of 43.37. He also has four first-class wickets as a very occasional off-spin bowler.
