Postcode has been a stalwart for our afternoon teas for a decade, more recently doing the Sunday-only teas because of Saturday work commitments, and is always happy to put his hand up to support our club.

Peter first played for Moonee Valley in 2001/02, having followed younger brother Geoff across after they both played a lot of cricket together at Surrey Hills.
He's taken 303 wickets with his wily off-spin - the ninth-most wickets of anyone at our club - and while his batting his reaped him much more than 700 runs, he's always happy to be selected down the order.
