TEAMS

Ned Gregory was a major figure in the early days of Australian cricket, as a middle-order batsman and curator of the Sydney Cricket Ground. He played in the first Test of all in 1876-77, and was the first person to make a duck in a Test. The Gregory dynasty provided a hatful of first-class cricketers. His captain in that match was his brother, Dave, and four brothers played for New South Wales. His son, Syd, went on to captain Australia, and one of his daughters married a Test cricketer (Harry Donnan). His other legacy to the game was that he built the first comprehensive scoreboard - at the SCG, naturally. He died at his cottage on the ground.
