The Moonee Valley emblem was in the limelight when police took to the field in an annual cricket match to honor the memory of Luke Batty.
The death of young cricketer Luke, 11, in 2014 led Victoria Police to further strengthen their response to family violence.
The Victoria Police team for the January 25 Twenty20 match included Chief Commissioner of Police Graham Ashton and his chief of staff, Brett Curran – both prominent in Moonee Valley Cricket Club pants with our logo on the left hip.

Brett is well known to Moonee Valley supporters as a 113-game player and regular captain of our Club, with honors including 77 wickets @ 13.56 and the 2014/15 Premiership.

The Chief Commissioner doesn’t have such a close connection with Moonee Valley, but was happy to don the whites, have a bat and field at first slip.

And he's told us that a game or two from Chief Commissioner Ashton FOR Moonee Valley - not just in our whites - is not out of the question for next season. 
The match was for the third annual Luke Batty Memorial Shield, raising awareness of family violence and to honor the memory of Luke.
