Cricket Victoria has received the sad news that Mrs Eileen Uebergang (nee Massey) has passed away at the age of 83.
Eileen was born in Albany Western Australia, but moved to Melbourne at a young age. She joined the highly successful Collingwood Women's club where she played in several premierships. The club won seven premierships between 1948-49 and 1960-61 and Eileen captained four of these in a row.
Eileen played in 4 Tests, one against New Zealand in 1956-57 and three against England the following season. On debut in Adelaide, she scored 32 and took 2/33 against the Kiwis.
Eileen was a valued member (no 75) of the Victorian Spirited Journey, which recognised over 200 women who have played in at least one first-class match since 1930-31.
Cricket Victoria extends sincere condolences to Mrs Uebergang's family and friends throughout the cricket world.
