The Dion Nash Site has
moved. Please visit the new address:
Hi, I'm Kit. Thankyou for visiting The Dion Nash Site. For
those who ask "why would an Australian make this site?"
or other questions, here's some info about the site and it's
The Dion Nash Site
The site came into existence on June 20, 1999.
At the time Dion Nash was perhaps at the height of his success
and popularity, and I felt he deserved a dedicated website.
Why Dion Nash? Because I believed he wass a
great cricketer with amazing spirit, be that on the field,
or struggling to overcome the injuries Cruel Fate threw at
him. He made me a fan of New Zealand cricket in his first
game back after two years sidelined with injury - and I've
been following ever since.
I was, obviously, deeply saddened to hear of
Nash's decision to end his cricket career in May 2002, although
I do believe it was the best choice for him. Now he has retired,
this site will remain online as a tribute to Dion Nash but,
of course, cannot be updated.
I do not know Dion Nash and this website is
completely unofficial, but Nash is aware of this site and
has, I am told, visited it himself.
The Dion Nash Site turned two years old on June
20, 2001. I made it a Birthday
Card and Museum about its development. I made another
small tribute to the site's third
birthday in 2002.
Particularly because I live in Australia, I
could never have made this site without the help of many friends.
Innumerable thank-yous go to: Hannah, Heather, Jess, Jo (x2),
Jules, Kerryn, Lisa, Lynn, Rachel, Rose, Sara, Sascha, Sheryl
and Stacey for their advice, support, and contributions. Thanks
also to Auckland Grammar School for the photo which appears
in my review of Nash's career.
I'm an Australian, but I'm a dedicated (obsessive?)
fan of Dion Nash and the New Zealand Cricket Team - something
I can't quite explain, but there's a long
My "day job" is studying at Sydney
My greatest "achievements" as a fan
are appearing in an article about crazy fans in India's Cricket
Talk magazine, being "mentioned" in a radio
interview with Dion Nash, and - more seriously - this website
being used as a media research source.
I've spoken to Dion Nash twice. In Melbourne
in 1998 my sister Sash and I told Dion we thought he was the
greatest cricketer ever. He didn't believe us. In Auckland
in 2001 I told him we'd come from Sydney to see him play.
This seemed not to register. We also saw him again in Australia
in 2001-2002, but I never had the guts to tell him about this
I have two other cricket websites, Cairnsey:
The Chris Cairns Site and the ecclectic, off-beat Fun
with Black Caps.
Although Nash has retired, I will still contemplate
adding to the site's archives. If you would like to contribute
something, please email
me. If you have a related website, please consider adding
a link to help keep the legend alive: www.angelfire.com/sports/nash
