    I am saddened by the passing of Keith, a very respected friend and team mate in Barkers Creek Cricket Club’s first CDCA A Grade premiership team in 1968/69. Keith will be remembered as a great Barkers Creek clubman and forebearer to the Semmens legacy at Barkers Creek which has created the most successful family in its A Grade history. A life well played Keith. Philip Benstead
