Ian “Snowy” Beven was the competition’s most decorated player during the 1980’s. A tall left-hand predominantly opening batsman and right-arm off-spin bowler, Beven enjoyed much team and individual success.
Beven debuted with Clarence late in the 1975/76 season as a 17 year-old, with the all-rounder quickly becoming a regular member of the side until the 1988/89 season, before returning for a final season ten years later.
Individually Beven won the Medal as the Association’s best player four times in 1984-85, 1985-86, 1986-87 and 1988-89. Beven also won twelve averages and aggregate awards during the 1980’s, and was player of the final in Clarence’s 1982/83 triumph over Glenorchy taking 5/32 and scoring 83.
Beven was a key member of Clarence’s successful teams of the era, playing six premierships from eight successive Grand Finals from 1981/82 to 1988/89, including four in a row from 1981/82 to 1984/85, plus was a member of five one-day titles.
Beven also represented Tasmania and Scotland.
