We're the Twenty20 Premiers - again!
NEWS FLASH!!!!!!!!!!!: WE WON!!!!!!! Twenty20 Grand Final - Association has transferred it away from us
Ormond Park will no longer be hosting the Grand Final of the North West Cricket Association's Twenty20 competition on February 23, as the North West Cricket Association has transferred the game away from us.
We expect the game will be played at the Cooper St, Essendon ground of Buckley Park, the other Grand Finalist.
The NWCA decided that the Ormond Park pitch was not suitable for the game, even though we played and won three matches on it in the preliminary Twenty20 rounds and we have played juniors and senior men's and women's games on it all season.
Buckley Park declined our offer to play the match on our turf wicket. This is now Moonee Valley's third Twenty20 Grand Final in a row, and we are yet to host one.
Moonee Valley won through to the Grand Final after we went through our pool undefeated, accounting for Greenvale, Balmoral and Clarkefield along the way. Skipper Mark Gauci (left) has led the team from the front.
We had been trying hard for a Moonee Valley v Moonee Valley playoff, as we entered two teams in the competition and our second squad only just failed to win its way through.
Moonee Valley President Charlie Walker said we ventured up to Taylors Lakes to play off in the big one in each of the two previous seasons.
The match starts at 5.30pm on Tuesday, February 23, and we urge all players and supporters to come and watch us try to defend our crown.
