"An honest fast-medium bowler for the Tigers, Graeme Paterson was unlucky to have been overlooked for higher honours. Paterson's 505 wickets stood as a Tigers' record until Allan Wise surpassed him, but his 73 wickets at 11.69 in 1965/66 remains a club record, with only Lisle Nagel (86 in 1939/40) and Bert Ironmonger (79 in 1919/20) having taken more wickets in a season. Paterson's tally of 73 included his career-best figures of 9/33 against Hawthorn-East Melbourne in the opening match of the season - he caught the last batsman off Wilson's bowling.

Paterson was Club Champion six times and was a member of the Tigers' 1976/77 premiership team."
