We're on Facebook and Twitter
Moonee Valley Cricket Club has signed on to Facebook and Twitter to better keep our members up to date with what's happening via social media.
We will be posting score updates on Twitter as regularly as our Captains can get them in during the course of the season, while Ryan Fairclough and his team will supplement our long-standing communication on this website via Facebook updates.
There are also direct links at the foot of this page.
To access Facebook and if you don't have access to click on our links, go to http://www.facebook.com/MVCC.Cricket
To access our Twitter accounts, go to www.twitter.com. You can either search for #mvcricket to get the latest posts, or type in mv_cricket to see all the communications. On match days each weekend it's hard to keep track on what's going down onfield across the grounds where we're playing, home and away and on Saturdays and Sundays. That's where Twitter comes in. With scores regularly updated, we will do away with the endless phone calls trying to track down a score. It will apply to the juniors as well.
** 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.
*Canteen Manager - Peter Fenaughty returned unopposed.
*General Committee Member - George Pearson returned unopposed.
*General Committee Member - Kevin Gardiner returned unopposed.
*General Committee Member, with a focus on functions and events - Tien Ha elected unopposed.

We also have unfilled positions for Sponsorship Manager and Merchandising Manager. Anyone interested in these roles should also ring Charlie Walker.
