*Moonee Valley Cricket Club's 40th anniversary celebration - don't miss it!***Moonee Valley CC 40th anniversary celebration: January 28
Moonee Valley Cricket Club is holding a gala function to celebrate our 40th anniversary on Saturday, January 28. It's a dress-up affair for current and past players, partners and supporters, and is being held at Happy Receptions in Union Rd, Ascot Vale.
It also gives us a chance to celebrate the achievement of Darren "Spud" Nagle, Life Member and long-serving past president, who this season became our first player to reach 300 games.
***For more information on the event, go to the "40th anniversary & past players" drop-down tag on the black line menu at the top of this page.


Vice President Simon Thornton has organised our new training tops, and our players can all look smarter as we go through our sessions as a result.

The smart grey tops have been subsidised at $20 each, thanks to contributions by our sponsors, Income Solutions and Complete Stainless Steel.
*Showing off the new training shirts featuring the sponsors Income Solutions and Complete Stainless Steel are (L-R) Simon Thornton, Craig Pridham and Mark Gauci.Thanks go to our Sponsorship Manager, Evan Blythe for his work in facilitating this. Thanks also to our contacts at the two companies - Firsts batsman Steve Nickelson with Income Solutions, and First Eleven captain Mark Gauci at Complete Stainless Steel.

Our Club policy of requiring players to wear a white or predominantly white top at training has now been broadened to include a grey Club training top as an alternative to the white.

*Shown here modelling the new shirts are (L-R) Simon Thornton, Craig Pridham and Mark Gauci.

Anyone wanting to buy a training shirt should see Simon Thornton or Charlie Walker at training.

The Moonee Valley Cricket Club Christmas party on Saturday, December 17 was a fun affair. Held at the pavilion, an enthusiastic crowd celebrated the holiday shut-down - although the Eighths and our Under 16s still had matches on the next day.

Thanks to Tien Ha and her helpers Mary and Victoria for their sterling work decorating the rooms and organising the meal, Peter Fenaughty for cooking the roast, Danny Terzini for organising the big raffle and its 31 prizes, Stephen Tassos for keeping an eye on the finances, Peter Smith and Paty Taylor for running the bar and Simon Thornton for stocking the bar and running the raffle draw.

First prize of $500 was won by Kevin Gardiner, and second prize of $250 by Helen Cafari.

*Special tips from a special cricketer: L-R Matt Hogg with sons Archie and Charlie, with former Test bowler Jim Higgs.
Former Australian leg spinner Jim Higgs took Under 14 training at Moonee Valley on December 1, and our young players took away a lot of excellent advice to put into practice.

Jim came to visit us courtesy of Matt Hogg, from our Under 14 coaching panel, and we appreciate the time and effort.

Jim Higgs is shown here with Matt Hogg and his two sons, who play at Moonee Valley - Archie (left) and Charlie.
