Ian Denny wins the Lindsay Jones Award
The man who has won just about everything at Moonee Valley Cricket Club has now also captured our most prestigious award - Club legend Ian Denny was presented with the Lindsay Jones Best Clubman award at our 2020/21 Presentation on April 17.
Ian has won multiple Club Champion awards, batting and bowling awards and other honors, but was floored when Life Member John Talone announced the Lindsay Jones.
For good measure, Ian "Egbert" Denny also won the Sean O'Kane Award, for best player in all grades other than the Firsts.

We also invested four new Life Members at the night, held in our Ormond Park Pavilion.
Daniel Phillips, Jesse Nankivell-Sandor, Bede Gannon and Shaun Rayment have all reached the milestone after extended time at our Club.
Nadeera Thuppahi was Club Champion after his stellar season which netted 644 runs @ 64.4.
Sam Kater was voted Wicketkeeper of the Year, while flag-winning Tara Newman won the Coach's Award as Most Improved Player - starting the season off just wanting to field in a game and not have to bat or bowl, and finishing it with a Premiership medal around her neck.
