Lindsay started with the Club in 1970/71 in the Under 14's as a 9 year old and then became Captain of our first Under 12 side in 1973/74, and often subbed for the senior teams. He progressed through the junior ranks and was a member of our first Under 16 Premiership side in 1977/78.

As a senior player he played 146 games, and as a wicket keeper recorded the third highest dismissals of 134 (118 catches and 16 stumpings). A hard hitting batsman he scored two centuries.

Lindsay captained the First XI for four seasons in which the team was twice runners-up.

He has held the positions of Club President, Deputy President, Secretary, Vice President (Match Committee) and Vice President (Juniors) along with Delegate, Junior Coach, Senior Practice Co-ordinator and Social Convenor.

In 2006, Lindsay compiled a complete history of all Junior statistics and published them along with all players' numbers for Club, Seniors and Juniors. He continues to to update the club's valuable statistical records of all players.

Lindsay's 2 sons have also played for the Cougars, which now make 7 Alabasters (across three Generations) in total to have played, or are still playing Seniors. Six of the Alabasters all played and Captained in our Juniors (John Alabaster only played Seniors).

Lindsay managed negotiations with Council in the building of our new pavilion in 2006 and headed the project of raising over $20,000 in just a few short months, for the installation of practice nets at Glen Waverley North Reserve. Currently, Lindsay is heavily involved with the Richmond Cricket Club.
