Match List

Below is a list of all 729  matches played.  It is based on one compiled by John Madigan in The Maher Cup and Tumut, and includes additions and corrections. Madigan credited Wal Galvin of Cootamundra for first publishing the list in the Group 9 Year Book of 1978.

The list includes:

  • all scores
  • crowd and/or gate takings,  if known
  • more than 2500 hypertext links to online full-text newspaper articles available via Trove. Further links are being added as more local newspapers are digitised.
  • references to reports and photos in the pages of the books in the bibliography.

Download the Teams and Scorers PDF file for complete team lists where known and the scorers in individual matches. If anyone can assist with scanned newspaper clippings and/or team photos I, and fellow Maher Cup researchers, would be most thankful.
