Over his 10 years at the club Whiteaker has played more than 200 games across all grades, scored 12 centuries and scored an excess of 6,000 runs.

Whiteaker said he has loved his time at the Club and the success they have had as a team.

“It feels good to make 150 games, and it’s so great to be captaining my milestone match this weekend,” Whiteaker said.

“The club has supported me a lot, coaches Jim Allenby and Tim Cusack, when he was around, have both helped me a lot.

“It has always been a fun place to play cricket, the club is always open to anyone who wants to come and play.

“We have been quite successful, especially over the last five, and I would love to win one more One Day flag to make it five in a row.

Claremont-Nedlands President Rod David said the club is incredibly proud of Whiteaker’s achievements.

“Jacob in our opinion is the premier opening batsman in WA Premier Cricket and an excellent wicke-keeper,” David said

“His success and huge volume of runs opening the batting has had a large impact on our success over the last six or seven years.

“Not only does he have a leadership role at the Club, but this year has seen him join the Club Committee and make a valuable input into the running of the Club.”
