Great Boulder can lay claim to producing some of the best batsmen the EGCA has ever seen and one of the finest was Brian “Biffer” Thomas. In a career that included 200 A Grade games the stylish top order batsmen compiled a prolific 5259 runs at 30.1 which goes down in the club history books as a record for the highest aggregate of runs scored. It is widely accepted in local cricketing circles that Thomas was one man opposition teams respected as a prize wicket and his elegance coupled with determination was feared by all rivals. Fittingly he was a product of the clubs junior ranks that went on to procure four A Grade centuries including a highest score of 135. The pinnacle for Thomas was Season 1991-92 when he was instrumental in the club securing a Premiership when playing his 150th game in that winning Grand Final. The three time Premiership player was rewarded for his long and dedicated service to the club the same year when he received the clubs ultimate honour of Life Membership.
