Chappie Dwyer - Career


Dwyer played his three matches for NSW sporadically between the end of the First World War and the year of the Wall Street Crash. His first match took place of 26 December 1918 against Victoria at the Melbourne Cricket Ground. Winning the toss, NSW inserted Victoria in to bat, and dismissed them for 266, largely composed of a century by Frederick Baring. Dwyer, at number two, formed an opening partnership of 26 with Australian international Warren Bardsley before the latter fell lbw to Baring for 18 and Dwyer was dismissed by international Edgar McDonald. NSW fell to 123 all out, and were unable to stop Victoria from reaching 299 all out in their second innings, thanks to a century by Edgar Mayne. NSW notched up 226 in reply, Dwyer falling again to McDonald for nine.

Dwyer did not play again until 28 November 1925, against Queensland in Brisbane. Dwyer, now batting at number six, scored 20 runs before he was dismissed by Australian international Ron Oxenham, who went on to get a five-wicket-haul as NSW reached 287 all out. Oxenham then went on to score 96 as an opener in Queensland's reply total of 506, which also contained a century of 132 for Francis Thompson. Dwyer hit 23 not out as Queensland reached 77/4 before the three-day match ended as a draw.

Dwyer's last appearance in first-class cricket came on 8 February 1929, against Tasmania in Hobart. Winning the toss and with captain Charles Kelleway deciding to bat first, NSW reached 443 all out with Dwyer, now batting at number eight, being dismissed for two by Reginald Townley. NSW then quickly dismissed Tasmania for 158, with four wickets each for Ronald Eaton and Frank Jordan, who took a further two and four wickets respectively as Tasmania were dismissed for 102 in the follow-on to hand NSW victory by an innings and 182 runs, the only victory Dwyer was to partake in.

Dwyer completed his three-match career with 65 runs at 16.25, and a highscore of 23* against Queensland in 1925. His son, Brian Eric Dwyer, who was born 9 February 1925, would go on to play for New South Wales' Colts and Second XI across the winter of 1948/49, however neither ever represented Australia at international level.

Famous quotes containing the word career:

    Like the old soldier of the ballad, I now close my military career and just fade away, an old soldier who tried to do his duty as God gave him the light to see that duty. Goodbye.
    Douglas MacArthur (1880–1964)

    It is a great many years since at the outset of my career I had to think seriously what life had to offer that was worth having. I came to the conclusion that the chief good for me was freedom to learn, think, and say what I pleased, when I pleased. I have acted on that conviction... and though strongly, and perhaps wisely, warned that I should probably come to grief, I am entirely satisfied with the results of the line of action I have adopted.
    Thomas Henry Huxley (1825–95)

    Clearly, society has a tremendous stake in insisting on a woman’s natural fitness for the career of mother: the alternatives are all too expensive.
    Ann Oakley (b. 1944)
