At Grace Plains, George Broster organised a match, in 1899, between the Grace Plains Literary Society and the Barabba Literary Society. Playing for Grace Plains were E. Franks, A. Franks, J. Jury, S. Jury, W. March, A. Marshman, A. Ball, D. Murphy and G. Broster. Over the ensuing years the Grace Plains team met with much success in the Adelaide Plains Cricket Association, where the shield for premiers was for many years the 'March-Tiller Shield', commemorating two names very prominent in Grace Plains history. Among the many good cricketers from Grace Plains were Tom and Gordon Tiller (both toured the United Kingdom in a South Australian country touring team) and Syd March who also played district cricket in Adelaide. Peter March (son of Syd March) played for a South Australian country team against New Zealand in a contest held at Angaston in c. 1963. In 1964/65, the last year Grace Plains fielded a team, they won the grand final against Long Plains. Players in that match were L. Broster (captain), P. March, J. Baker, R. Bache, C. Hall, J. Lutt, J. Franks, R. Baker, B. Jenkin, L. Webb, R. Lutt and T. Tiller.
