Shane Young has been able to locate a copy of Arthur Grayburn’s 1994 book “Burnside Park, It’s History, People and Sport” which provides a record of both the history of the park, but also that of the sports clubs associated with the park.
Arthur Grayburn was club secretary 1990-93 and had over 1200 wickets bowling leg-spin in 51 seasons from 1941-92, in addition he was a holder of several world veteran javelin throw records, and some older members may remember Arthur practicing at the park and well coaching people on the technical aspects of throwing.

This book will of interest to anyone who is interested in the history of the park, bowls, cricket, hockey, jogging, rugby, scouts, soccer, squash, table tennis and tennis at the park.
