THE grandfather of Navy cricket has had
an International Defence Cricket Challenge
(IDCC) to remember.
NGN SWO Gary Fuss, a 23-year veteran of
ADF cricket, made history by bagging the first
IDCC hat-trick during Navy's match against Air
WO Fuss said he came on for his second spell
with 10 overs to go against a big-scoring Air
Force batting line-up with six wickets in hand.
"The captain threw me the ball and I came in
and the first ball was a wicket; couldn't believe
it, bowled the guy," WO Fuss said.
"Second ball the guy's padded up; couldn't
believe it, LBW and on a hat-trick. Third ball and
the guy padded up again and low and behold the
hat-trick came, so I was very excited about that --
it's not very often a hat-trick comes around."
WO Fuss said his Navy teammates got as
much out of the feat as he did.
"They were very excited out there on the
pitch and I had players running in giving the
hugs out, it was unbelievable," he said.
Amazingly, WO Fuss has trouble remember-
ing how many hat-tricks he has bowled through-
out his playing career.
"I've probably taken 12-15 in my time," he
"I started playing the year after Australian
Services Cricket Association (ASCA) started,
so I've been around a while. I suppose I'm the
grand-daddy of Navy cricket."
WO Fuss finished the day with six for 27 and
scored 18n.o. with the bat but, despite his efforts,
Navy narrowly lost to Air Force.
He was the Navy's top bowler for the compe-
tition with 16 wickets from seven games and was
chosen as one of only three Australians in the
World Defence 11 to play the Australian Masters
If that's not all, WO Fuss was officially made
a legend of ADF cricket in separate ceremonies
following the final match of the tournament.
He was awarded the second ever life member-
ship of Navy Cricket and was made the 10th life
member of ASCA.
IDCC tournament director LTCOL James
Brownlie said WO Fuss was the embodiment of a
"He's got great spirit, he's always involved,
he's always happy and he's always got a good
word to say about people," LTCOL Brownlie
