Moonee Valley's Carlton Connection 

Our "Carlton Connection" was well to the fore at the Moonee Valley Cricket Club Melbourne Cup day function.

Three key administrators from the Carlton Cricket Club were at the function, and enjoyed themselves among the 100-odd players, family and supporters.

It's a bonus for our Club to have these connections wth a major Premier club, and ensures that any of our young guns who do well have the opportunity to further themselves.

Tony Gleeson, Phil "Gerry" Horner and Gary Schickerling are part of the administrative group at Carlton - and also have links to Moonee Valley.

Tony is team manager of the Carlton Second Eleven. A Moonee Valley senior premiership coach, he has played around 80 games with us. Even though he's in his third season at Carlton he's still a regular at Ormond Park, and played two games with us last season.

Phil is team manager of the Carlton Firsts. He's a past team-mate of Tony Gleeson and Paul Comino at the now-defunct Princes Hill Cricket Club, and came out of retirement last season when he joined Tony and Paul for a nostalgia game together, playing in the Moonee Valley Ninths. He's primed to add to his Valley tally this season.

Gary, a past secretary and committee member at Carlton, takes a keen interest in what's happening at Ormond Park as he travels to and from Princes Park - and he makes sure the Premier club knows what we're doing right.

Moonee Valley is proud to have the friendship and involvement of these influential three.
