    Negative.

    Picken Oval used to have a trotting track around the outside and stables nearby. A famous name in Sydney trots, albeit a long time ago, was the Picken family. I'm only guessing, but I reckon it's a fair chance there is a connection there.

    Thanks. I didn't think it would be named after Billy.

    Well it is, but not THAT Billy.

    And thx Floppin, I was too lazy to look it up, just sort of knew/guessed there would be a connection.

    "Paul was one of our local juniors and played for the club for four years so he feels very at home here," he said. "At half-time he went on to the ground and held a coaching clinic with the juniors."
    Great.....

    There will be lots of junior umpire who get some practice giving away frees fro HITB or aound the neck this week.....
