John Cassimar Treanor (17 August 1922 – 7 November 1993) was a first-class cricketer who played for New South Wales between 1954 and 1957.

Cricket career[edit]

A leg-spin bowler, Treanor made his first-class debut in the Sheffield Shield against Queensland in 1954-55, taking 5 for 146 and 3 for 69 (including a hat-trick) in the drawn match.[1] In his next match he took 3 for 64 and 4 for 96 against the touring MCC,[2] and in his third match he took 5 for 97 and 3 for 41 against Victoria.[3] The English journalist Alan Ross thought Treanor was the best spin bowler in Australia at the time, and should have been chosen for the tour to England in 1956,[4] but Treanor played only two matches in the 1955-56 season.

He took 28 wickets at an average of 30.25 in 1956-57,[5] and took his best figures of 5 for 36 in the tied match against Victoria,[6] but that was his last season of first-class cricket.

He was a highly successful bowler in Sydney grade cricket.[7] In the 1970s he coached the cricket team at the University of Wollongong.[8]

Personal life[edit]

In the Second World War Treanor served as a sapper with 2/4 Field Company.[9] He married Norma Dorrington in 1947.[10]
