Notes
The Ainslie Cricket Ground was located near the north Lyneham shops in front of Jack Southwell's 'Rosevale' property. Shumack farmed at Kia Ora (part of Lyneham). Edwards was a public servant and Cox was a Lands Inspector. Shumack and Edwards both served in World War 1.
This was the second ground used by Ainslie. The first ground was near the site of Lyneham Primary School. In the 1930s a new ground was built at the intersection of Ginninderra Drive and Mouat Street.
