Josh Marquet

Local boy Josh Marquet played three seasons in Ashwood's First XI from 1985/86 to '87/88 before his express bowling was recognised by district cricket selectors and he was off to University, Waverley and Dandenong cricket clubs.

The quietly spoken but always grinning gentle giant, bowled well enough in district ranks to earn a spot in the Victorian squad, but failed to gain a regular birth in the state team.

So after much soul searching, he transferred to Tasmania where he played regularly in the Devils' Sheffield Shield and One Day Domestic teams.
