Newspaper Article 1954 – Newbigin For Hawke’s Bay

Newbigin For Hawke’s Bay.

The Wellington Club medium-fast bowler, E.J.D. Newbigin, who gained representative honours last cricket season, will return to Hawke’s Bay shortly. Newbigin had a quick rise from third grade three seasons ago to senior and then to the Plunket Shield side. He had a most successful season last year with the ball, but a shoulder injury this season compelled him to drop out early. If he can regain the accuracy he achieved last year with his swing deliveries, he should be a big asset to Hawke’s Bay cricket.
