Darren "Spud" Nagle - our first to 300 - Page 1

Moonee Valley Cricket Club legend Darren "Spud" Nagle was given a guard of honor when he ran on to the ground to play his 300th game - and didn't let us down when he unleashed a Man of the Match performance.

Past and present players, family, supporters and admirers were all on hand for the October 30 Sunday game, which fittingly was held at Moonee Valley's home ground Ormond Park.

Above: Spud runs through a guard of honor onto the ground - with the first two players on the left being
long-time mate Ian Denny and fellow opening bat and Avondale Heights recruit Dean Lawson - and on the
left being fellow Life Member John Talone and his son Luke.

Spud shared the achievement off-field with a large group of admirers - and his onfield teammates in our Fourth Eleven included fellow life members John Talone and Ian Denny.

He really is a legend: Spud with his banner.Spud is the first Moonee Valley player to reach the exalted 300-game mark - while Ian is now on 284 and John on 256.

Spud ran through a guard of honor of his Fourth Eleven teammates and current and past players, and the clubrooms were decorated with a big banner put together by the Talone family.
