Fred Spofforth PlaquePrint Page Print this page

Plaque commemorates Fred Spofforth.

Fred Spofforth was Australian cricket's first international star. Tall and lean, he bowled with so much pace, hostility and skill that by the early 1880's he was considered the world's finest bowler and was given the nickname 'Demon'. Spofforth's match winning bowling against England at the Oval in 1882 inspired the Ashes tradition.
