Debney Park has been closed to cricket
WalkerCharlie2008MarchMoonee Valley Cricket Club has been advised by the Moonee Valley Council that Debney Park has been withdrawn from service as a cricket ground until further notice.
Council advised the Club via email on Thursday, October 29 that the ground was closed following an inspection, and that unless measures were taken immediately to rejuvenate it the ground would continue to suffer.
We advised that in our view the Debney Park surface was considerably better than it has been in the previous two seasons.

Due to the severe disruption this will cause, our Committee has regretfully made the decision to withdraw our team from the MMVCA One Day Division 3 grade.
The captain of that team, Allan Cumming (left) will now skipper our NWCA One Day Black team.
Charlie said Moonee Valley regards Debney Park as one of our long-term grounds and an oval that is in the heartland of our demographic area.
"We will work closely with the Council to develop a long-term solution that ensures that this asset continues to be available to our Club and the local cricket community in a sustainable manner into the future," he said.
