As far as NTCA icons go, Jade Selby is one of the more recent names on the list.
Joining Launceston Cricket Club when he was nine, the 43-year-old worked his way through to A-grade in 1994 and stayed there until retirement in 2014.
Looking back, Selby can remember his first-grade initiation vividly.

"I had to face Troy Cooley and I think Plum [Scott Plummer] was even playing then for Mowbray and Ricky Ponting was smashing balls at me at mid-off, I was like 'geez, can I play this A-grade cricket?', and in the 90s in particular every team you played was unreal," he said.
"I remember saying to my old man when I was 17 I think it was debuting and playing my first few games [that] 'I can't play at this level, these players are just unreal', but it was great.
"I was lucky enough to play in a really successful era for Launnie so I got to win premierships with blokes like Richard Bennett, Paul McShane, Andy Belsak and later on I got to play with the young kids as well."
"There were amazing games and I think the grand finals from '98 to 2000 just showed how good the NTCA was."
The 1998 clash saw Selby's Launceston chase down Mowbray's mammoth score of 7-542 with the all-rounder hitting the winning runs - scoring his first A-grade century in the process - as Belsak scored 179.
Two seasons later, despite still winning, the shoe was on the other foot, with Launceston taking six wickets in the final hour to defeat Riverside.
"Young Xavier Doherty, who went on to play Test cricket, took the last wicket and there was literally one over to go in the whole game in a four-day game."
Riverside held a 155-run lead after the first innings, with former teammate Belsak scoring 159 for the Blues.
Selby returned serve with another grand-final century of his own before the Blues lost 6-15 in the closing stages.
Winning nine A-grade and three second-grade flags across more than 300 games, Selby is one of many players looking forward to the NTCA reunion on October 1.
"I'm a bit of history buff and people who know me know I like stats and history of the place.
"Just meeting the guys [fellow Cricket North alumni], they are just really great people, it doesn't matter what club they played for, they are great cricketers from Northern Tasmania.
"There are some great stories and I'm really interested to hear some."
