PRESENTATION NIGHT WELCOMES NEW LIFE MEMBERS
Our belated 2019/20 Presentation - pushed back nine months because of the coronavirus pandemic and lockdown - was a big night at the Ormond Park clubrooms on January 30.
As well as Life Memberships for Allan Cumming and Peter Golding, the night saw the announcement and presentation of the prestigious Lindsay Jones Best Clubman award to Peter Golding.
Peter has long been the driving force behind the committee and the executive, and spent four years as our Secretary before the last seven as Treasurer.
At right: One Life Member to another - Ben Thomas pins Allan Cumming's medallion to his lapel.
He piloted us through the move to the portables while our new clubrooms were built, the transition back and survival through coronavirus, all in his calm, inimitable way.
Peter's Life Membership was announced and presented by past Secretary John Talone, who had an incredible 14 years in that role, while Allan's was presented by President Charlie Walker, who started his journey at Moonee Valley about the same time.
Allan reminisced about his first presentation night, and being inspired by the heartfelt speech of Sandro Capocchi when he received Life Membership.
Peter came on board in 2007/08, when as a dad of Sam in the Under 10s he answered a call to help overcome a shortage of players in the Ninths.
Both are exemplary members of our Club and the committee, and worthy life members.
Anthony Cafari was crowned Club Champion for his efforts with bat and ball in the First Eleven in our Premiership year.
And Dean Jukic won the Sean O'Kane Award for the best player (all other grades).
Luca Nimorakiotakis won the Coach's Award for Most Improved Player from Tony Gleeson, after breaking into the First Eleven late in the 2019/20 season.
Peter Golding was Wicketkeeper of the Year.
