** It's back to Britain for our Kris **
Popular UK import Kris Garland has headed home to England, and a group of his Moonee Valley teammates gathered at the Union Hotel in Ascot Vale on June 29 to give him a fitting send-off.
Kris, who had been in Australia studying and found Moonee Valley through our website, quickly fitted in - firstly with our two Yorkshiremen, Simon Thornton and Joel Wilford - and then with everyone.
A regular in our Firsts for the 2010/11 season, Kris is planning to come back for the 2012/13 season, after completing his studies back home.
Celebrating with a good old Aussie beer are (above, L-R: Bede Gannon, Kris Garland, Dean Jukic, Clare Ardern,
Ben Thomas, Simon Thornton, Matt Thomas, Jim McKenzie, Daniel McKenzie and Sean O'Kane.
Our Annual General Meeting details
The Moonee Valley Cricket Club held its 39th Annual General Meeting at the Ormond Park bowls club rooms on Thursday, June 23, and it was very much steady-as-she goes.
Our Executive members were returned unopposed, and we have a few fresh faces on the Committee to ensure we have some new ideas, new views and new voices to help guide our Club over the next year.
It was our first AGM as our new entity of the Moonee Valley Cricket Club Inc., although we remain committed as a section of the Moonee Valley Sporting Club.
About 20 members attended, and heard from Treasurer Stephen Tassos how we fared financially in a season characterised by washouts and adverse weather, which impacted on our ability to generate revenue.
Kevin Gardiner stepped down as Junior Co-ordinator. While we do not have a formal nomination at this stage for this role, Life Member and junior coach Darren Nagle has volunteered to oversee a group of parents who will perform the functions required to keep a vibrant junior section going.
Anyone interested in taking on the position of Junior Co-ordinator should ring Charlie Walker on 0409 237 543.
Details of the elections for the Club committee were:
*President - Charlie Walker returned unopposed.
*Vice President - Simon Thornton returned unopposed.
*Secretary - Peter Golding returned unopposed.
*Treasurer - Stephen Tassos returned unopposed.
*Assistant Treasurer - Pat Taylor elected unopposed.
