A superb effort by the Toowoomba Grammar School 1st XI cricket team has seen them retain the Tom Allen Memorial Trophy on Tuesday, 22 November 2022.

This was the 69th match between the two schools, with top players lining up for both 1st XI teams in the 50 over match.

The final scoreboard: Downlands was all out for 57, TGS replied with 6 for 246 off 32 overs.

TGS currently dominates the scorecard with 46 wins to Downlands 16 and seven draws/wash outs over the years.

The Tom Allen Memorial Trophy is held in honour of TGS Old Boy (1927-29), former Downlands Cricket Coach, and star Queensland cricketer, Tom Allen. At the age of 16, Tom was a TGS 1st XI opening batsman and wicket-keeper. He went on to play with the Queensland Country Colts Eleven and for Queensland in the Sheffield Shield. After retiring from play, Tom became a Toowoomba ‘A’ grade selector and was also on the panel of QCA selectors for Sheffield Shield. Tom passed away suddenly in 1954, aged just 41.

Thank you to Downloads College for continuing this long-standing tradition.
