@SearleJamie: Tim Eade doesn't want any fuss about his 100th senior game for the Appleby Cricket Club on Saturday.

He is more interested in captaining the Appleby Rams to a win over Southland Boys' High School at the school's ground in Invercargill.

Eade, who is a wicket keeper and batsman, will join 22 others on the Appleby Cricket Club's centurions' list.

He was a 15-year-old attending Mt Anglem College when he had his first game for the club in the 2003-04 season. 

''Richard Wilson, a teacher at the college, dragged me along . . . they were short of players,'' Eade said.

''I got two runs and I can't remember whether I got out or it [game] was rained out.''

Wilson has played more than 200 senior games for the Appleby club.

''Everyone is good and genuine [at the club], they get on with each other,'' Eade said.

The Appleby Rams are having a frustrating season, with inclement weather, byes and a team defaulting.

Eade and his family are involved in greyhound racing.

He owns a greyhound in the Woodend kennels operated by his mother Bronwyn.He also had a 10-year stint as the Southland Greyhound Racing Club's lure driver.
