William Lance Druery (14 May 1927 – 10 August 1993) was an Australian cricketer. He played in two first-class matches for Queensland in 1949/50.[1][2][3][4][5]

Cricket career[edit]

Druery was a slow bowling all-rounder[6][7] who played country cricket for Mackay and in October 1949 he was selected to represent a Mackay Colts team which played an Eton side.[8] In November he was selected in the Queensland Colts side due to a successful match with Mackay played in Brisbane, however prior to his first match for the Colts the Mackay Cricket Association received a request for Druery to be sent to Brisbane early to play in a special match for the State selectors.[9]

Druery was selected for Queensland in January 1950 for a First-class match against South Australia in Brisbane. He was the first Mackay cricketer to represent the state and he said after playing that it was a wonderful experience, and noted the fielding was of a higher standard than in Mackay with there being intense concentration on every ball.[10] He bowled well in his debut game and was reselected to play against Victoria in Brisbane in February 1950.[11] He dropped Herb Turner while fielding at third slip in the game which resulted in the match turning against Queensland,[12] and another notable event for him during the match was when he faced several bouncers which resulted in the crowd heckling the Victorians.[13]

By January 1951 Druery had moved to Brisbane where he was playing for Easts in grade cricket,[14] and in August 1951 he was selected in a Queensland practice squad, however he did not represent the State again.[15]
