There will also be significant milestone awards, and presentations of trophies which were not done at our MVP night.

Please help us by booking early. Players, parents and supporters should confirm their booking asap. When booking, please advise whether you are bringing your partner. Also bring your cheque books, as we will be flogging off some good memorabilia.
We need everyone to RSVP by April 26.
See you there!

LawsonDeanAward 300pixOur Deano delivers
Moonee Valley Fourths opening bat Dean Lawson has won the NWCA Barron Shield batting award - the second player from the Valleys to win it in three seasons.

Horse trainer Deano, who clubbed 296 runs at an average of 37 from just eight games, received the trophy at the NWCA awards night on April 8.

He follows on from team-mate Alan Harry, who won the award in the 2008/09 season.

Deano has become a stalwart of the Mighty Fighting Fourths, and in the last season brought up his 50th game for Moonee Valley.

Wife Sam and children Trent and Brooke have also played cricket at Moonee Valley.

Dean has scored 1760 runs @ 35.2 in his 54 games - which already has him at 40th on Moonee Valley's all-time run scorers. And he's got plenty of cricket left in him yet.

A premiership has so far eluded the Mighty Fightings, and there's a great deal of determination to address that anomaly in season 2011/12. So opposition bowlers watch out - Deano's coming for you!

WrightPeterMedal1103 460pixOur Peter wins the NWCA junior awards
Moonee Valley Under 14s captain Peter Wright stamped himself as a senior star of the future when he won two competition-wide awards at the North West Cricket Association junior presentations.

Playing in our Under 14 A team, Peter won a trophy for coming second in the batting wth 223 runs at an average of 44.6.

He also won the Bob Byron Medal as equal winner of the Under 14 A best player award.

Peter is shown here with his trophies alongside his father and co-coach of the Under 14 A team, Norm Wright.

For most of the season Peter stood head and shoulders above the opposition, and also led his team's bowling with 13 wickets at 5.85, including a haul of 5/8 off four overs when he terrorised Craigieburn.

Even though he's playing Under 14s, Peter has attracted the attention of several Premier clubs.

As well as juniors, Peter played most of the season in Moonee Valley's seniors in our Fourths, but also had one game where he opened the bowling for our Seconds. Peter also took to the field with our top players in the Twenty20 competition.
Well done to a champ of the future!

Moonee Valley held its Most Valuable Player awards night at Ascot Vale's Union Hotel on Sunday, March 13, with more than 45 players and supporters in attendance to cheer on some excellent performances.

Pictured here are L-R: Tom King, George Pearson, Mark Cini, Peter Smith
and Darren Nagle, who all played earlier in the day.
