The progressive and forward-thinking Moonee Valley Cricket Club requires a coach for Season 2010/11.
Moonee Valley Cricket Club is the biggest cricket club in Victoria according to the Cricket Victoria census before the start of the 2009/10 season, when we fielded 26 senior and junior teams.
Our First and Second Elevens have won promotion to the Victorian Turf Cricket Association North Division, after both won their premierships in 2009/10.
Our Club is based at Ormond Park, Pattison St, Moonee Ponds, with secondary facilities at Debney Park in Flemington.
Experienced senior players are also invited to make inquiries about playing for our progressive and successful club in 2010/11.

In Season 2010/11 we plan to field:
4 Senior Turf sides – two of them affiliated VTCA and two with the Moreland Moonee Valley Cricket Association
2 Senior Two-Day Matting sides affil. MMVCA and North West Cricket Association
4 Senior One-Day Matting sides affiliated MMVCA and NWCA
2 Senior One-Day women’s teams affiliated Victorian Women’s Cricket Association

We have Junior sides at each age group – Under 16s, Under 14s, Under 12s, Under 10s.
We aim for high achievement – in 2009/10, 13 of our eligible teams played finals. Our top four grades all made their Grand Finals.
