Over the past month or so there have been a number of requests to reopen MyCricket matches.


The majority of these requests have resulted from the HOME TEAM’s actions when they have (incorrectly) confirmed scores before the AWAY TEAM has had an opportunity to complete or check the scores & enter their player records. It is the AWAY TEAM’s responsibility to Confirm the match.


To clarify the BHRDCA MyCricket Match entry requirements…


BOTH TEAMS should enter their Selected teams (the equivalent to a Team Sheet) prior to, or at the latest, by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match commences


The HOME TEAM should enter the Short Result & update the Match status to a Saved Match Result by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded. (NOTE: Any earlier progress scores i.e. Innings entered after Day 1 of a Two Day game should only be saved as a Match in Progress.) Where possible, the HOME TEAM player performances should also be entered by 6.00 p.m. the day after the match has concluded (NOTE: This makes it easier for the AWAY team to meet their match completion obligations & for the Ladders to be formalised as early as possible in the days following the actual match conclusion)


The AWAY TEAM has up to three days after the match has concluded e.g. Tuesday at 6.00 p.m. to enter their player performances & to ensure that the HOME TEAM has entered the result correctly. The AWAY TEAM on ascertaining that the match result & team lists are correct should then Confirm the match as an accurate reflection of the Match outcome.


This will trigger an alert to the BHRDCA that the match day administration has been completed and the result (and Ladders) will be made official.

McIntosh Shield


With 7 Rounds now completed all competitions are starting to heat up at both ends of the ladder. After extreme heat conditions throughout the week players were greeted with cooler conditions.


Box Hill North Super Kings took on arch rival East Box Hill. After batting first East Box Hill would post a competitive 9/152 with Damian Yze making a swash buckling 77 not out. The Super Kings were never really threatened with Tom Mitchell 66 not out and Brad Carroll 43 the stars. The Super Kings sit in 3rd position and look in premiership contention.


Bulleen Templestowe now sit on top of the ladder 4-171 after defeating bottom of the ladder Mitcham 9-170cc. Michael Abbott 50, Alex White 40 for the Tigers, while Adrian Tabaccheria 5-21 for the Bullants. Mitcham still remain 6 points clear on the bottom and face the relegation.


Blackburn travelling to Templestowe would only manage 124 with Andrew Hone 5-22 Templestowe in the match, but the brittle Templetowe batting once again was brought undone only managing 8-116cc. Nishidh Sopirawala 42, while Burners stalwart Andrew Steele 4-39 proving the match winner with his experience.


St Davids at home to East Burwood in a very important game to stay in contact with the top four, but also to stay out of the relegation zone they would steam roll East Burwood’s respected batting for a disappointing 109. Chris Jones 51 the only highlight, while Brent Williams 5-15 would be the destroyer. East Burwood struggled to get early breakthroughs with Erilcott and Williams setting the platform with a solid opening stand. Ryan Coutts 27 not out, while Williams 31 not out would see victory from the home team.


Defending Premiers Heatherdale sitting in 9th place in a season they would like to forget so far took on Vermont who were keen to carry on their recent form. After winning the toss Vermont would post 207 with Jarrod Moody 71. Heatherdale could only manage 155 Lachlan Johns 64. Mitchell Rickarby taking 4-30 for the Eagles to inflict more pain for the Dales and putting its finals chances in severe jeopardy.


At home Forest Hill have been the benchmark team to date this season sitting on top of the ladder. Taking on Blackburn South these two teams in the past have had some exciting clashes with this one no different. Winning the toss Forest Hill would be all out for 144, a score well below its standard so far this season. Jarryd Taun-Henderson the only real shining light with 29. The Cobras chasing would lose Captain Steve Alderton early and with the top order rocked at 4/21 the Zebras looked in the box seat. Anthony Giuliano would play a mature innings for 45 and contributions by Seaton Mundy 29 and Steve Vormain 20 not out would get the Cobras over the line in a thriller 9/147 to remain in finals contention and give the Zebras second defeat on the season.


Wilson Shield


Laburnum were hosting Heatherdale in a very important game for both sides. Laburnam after batting first posted 135 with Matt Henderson 35 only managing to bat for 35 overs. James Moye 4-38 for Heatherdale would pass Laburnam at 6-141 to record a victory and remain in finals calculations.


After a win the previous round Kerrimuir United took on the improving Vermont South who have been in good form over recent matches. Vermont South would only make 91 with Dylan Ellis 5-20 the star for United. In reply they would pass the total 4/93 with Ryan Hillias compiling a well made 59 not out. Kerrimuir after a slow start now elevate to third on the ladder.


In the match of the round and living up to it in every way, Blackburn North batting first would only make 129 Ben Davis 37 while with Nick Greenhalf 4-25 for the Nungers. Koonung Heights set about the chase of 129. Christenson would be the only real shining light with wickets regularly falling. Patrao the last out bowled by Luke Macleod with scores tied. Dean Burton 3/32 for the best bowler for the Bulldogs.


Glen Waverley Hawks 9-198cc (Luke Galle 65, Jarrod Greaves 43) would defeat the struggling Mulgrave Wheelers Hill 178 (C.Arnold 57, T.Balaam 53, L.Galle 4-41).


Doncaster hosting Eley Park saw an even contest early with Doncaster 5/108 with 5 overs remaining in its innings managing to score 5-175cc. Late hitting by Josh Waters 42 not out and Mark Albiston 42 defeated a disappointing Eley Park 140 Sam Noble 2/19 . Eley Park who have slumped to the bottom of the ladder making its finals chances extremely difficult.

Hi All,


Please mark in your diary the 4th March, 2014 for the next delegates meeting.


Venue: East Burwood CC
Time: 7.45pm





Box Hill Reporter Junior Cricket teams have recorded outstanding results over the Victorian Metropolitan Cricket Union Representative carnival held over the past two weeks with 5 of their 6 teams competing winning through to the finals stage.


Unfortunately with several sides coming home with a wet sail, last weeks heat wave intervened and all quarter and semi final games were cancelled leaving only top two finishers to fight out the Grand Finals.


The Carnival showcase event the Jim Beitzel U/16 turf competition saw Box Hill take on arch rivals the Eastern Cricket Assn. with both teams undefeated. Box Hill won the toss and elected to bat with the Mulgrave Reserve outfield running very fast. It was a slow but steady start and despite the loss of two early wickets the Box Hill batsmen rose to the challenge, the charge was led by skipper Lucas Grierson with a fighting 52 with great support from Matty Stewart 34. The final 15 overs saw Ben Joseph 44 and Nelson Lane 32* apply the blowtorch with some superb copybook running between the wickets to carry Box Hill through to a very respectable 6/209 after their 40 overs.


ECA began their inning with a real flourish before the lively bowling of Chris Rose 2/25 made some early inroads. With the breakthrough wickets began to fall at a steady pace helped by some excellent fielding backing the bowlers. James Box 2/16 and Jack Morrison 2/23 also claimed multiple scalps with ECA finally dismissed for 143 and 66 runs adrift. As coach Chris Box emphasised after the game, this was a reward for a team performance with every player going out with a plan and then executing it to perfection.


Individual awards were also presented to Lucas Grierson as Player of the Match, Nelson Lane as Player of the series and Sam Harte as Player of the U14 Allen Shield Series. Congratulations to these fine young cricketeers and to all the players, officials, Umpires, parents and supporters who made this the best VMCU Carnival in Box Hill history – a fantastic effort all round.

BHRDCA Junior Section Manager


U_16_Team_1 U:16_Team_3 U_16_Team_4

Following a sensational effort by the BHRDCA teams last week when 5 of the 6 teams made the finals stage, we have been stymied by the current heatwave which has forced the VMCU to invoke their heat policy and cancel all quarter and semi-final games.


This means that only the top two finishers from each of the 6 grades will play off on sunday in their respective grand finals.


Whilst this is a very dissappointing result for 4 of our teams who all played some top class cricket and were confidently looking forward to going deep into the final series, only the unbeaten U16 Beitzel Turf team will now contest their grand final.


This is the first time that BHRDCA have reached the VMCU’s showcase final and I am sure that Chris Box and Anthony Stewart have the boys primed to take on their opponents a tough Eastern Cricket Assn team.


The match is set for an 11.00am start at

Mulgrave Reserve East

Garnet Rd, Wheelers Hill

Melways 81 B1


I know there are vets games on sunday also, but if you have a free hour or so get down to the game and support the boys.


As Junior Co-ordinator I know I speak on behalf of Ross Chambers (Junorr Rep Manager), Peter Rosenthal and all the BHRDCA Board in saying that we are exceedingly proud of all the teams for their endeavour, competitive spirit, skills level but above all their sportsmanship over a very tough tournament. Combined they have presented the association with the best set of results in our junior representative history and that is just a fantastic result.


The support of the coach’s, managers, host clubs and parents has been fantastic and is very much appreciated by the board. Last season we took the decision to promote junior cricket by doubling the number of rep teams, putting together a winter development program and completing the picture with a new uniform set – all innovations which have been fully vindicated.


Over the winter we will review the past season, seek to remedy any mistakes that have arisen on the way and work to make next season an even better game for our young players – they have done their bit and it is up to all clubs to ensure that we continue to do our part better each and every season.


Finally a quick note to advise you all of two further events coming up prior to what promises to be an exciting finals series.


Firstly on Sunday Feb 9th, 10 Deakin based clubs will compete in a Charity Community Day at Terrara Park at U12, U14 and U16 levels. This day is being sponsored by Michael Sukar the new Federal Member for Deakin. I still need to speak to some of the clubs involved with this and that will happen next week. This will be a great opportunity for the Assn to showcase some of the young talent we have to the community at large, so watch this space for more info on the day soon.


Secondly we will also select an Under 18 Representative team to play against the West Gippsland Cricket Assn on sunday March 2 at East Burwood. The U18 competition has also been a very competitive junior Friday night competition, sponsored by Anthony and his team at Maddocks Sports, selecting this team with the talent that is available will be very difficult. On the same day our Mackay U16 team will also play against the West Gippsland U16 VMCU Rep team so it will be a day of great cricket so put it in your calendar. Again I will release more information in the next couple of weeks.


I hope that the last few days have not been too draining on you all


All the best



Please note. The U/21’s rep game has been cancelled due to council not preparing a wicket for us.

The game has been rescheduled for next week. More information regading this will be posted once it comes to hand.




Our junior representative teams have been battling it out in the VMCU Junior Carnival over the past week and it is fantastic to report that we have a fantastic results across the board with 5 of the 6 teams still well in the run for a finals berth at the end of week 1.


In the U12’s our Browne Plate team finished off the week with a resounding win over a strong South East CA. The improvement in this team is very clear to see as the boys have grown in confidence with every match played in what has been a vital learning experience for the players.


The Mitchell Shield team sit in 7th position with 2 wins and 2 losses. A nail biting 3 run win over Diamond Valley on Friday means that they face a tough must win final round against North West Metro to guarantee a quarter-final berth.


The U14 Nolan side have played some outstanding cricket over the week shrugging of a first round loss against Yarra Valley to rebound strongly and record three consecutive wins over Diamond Valley, ECA and North West Metro to ensure a certain quarter final berth. Great effort boys.


The U14 Allen sit in 4th position with 2 wins against North West Metro and Western Region JCA going into the final round in a tight championship against Diamond Valley. A win here would also lift us into the quarter finals race which would be a fitting testament to the boys fighting qualities.


The standard of play across the two U16 competitions has been absolutely first class. The Mackay Cup team sits two and two and goes into the final round against bottom placed Western Region on Monday to secure a finals berth. This side has shown they can mix it with anyone on their day and there will be a few nervous sides watching this result.


In the turf competition the Beitzel squad has so far carried all before them with excellent wins over Southern District and Churches, SECA and Diamond Valley. Their final two match’s against Gisborne and District and North West Metro are very winnable for the lads as they chase a semi-final spot in the VMCU’s primary competition.


A special thanks to our host clubs East Burwood, Blackburn, Kerrimuir and Heatherdale who have all done an excellent job. Also thanks to the umpires for their efforts on the long ot days and to all the parents (especially the mums) who have again excelled with the fantastic lunch’s they have prepared for the teams – we really are number 1 in this area.


It looks like being an exciting week next week as the carnival builds to its climax.

It was a depleted Donvale that travelled down to Livingstone to take on Vermont Sth. Despite an early wicket Nicholas Dore and Ronan Prigg combined for a 100 run stand, Ronan making his half ton. Wickets fell steadily after that but the final score of 173 was always going to be tough for the undermanned Donvale. I don’t have Donvale’s batting stats, Tom Cunningham 4/23 ensured that they were never in the run chase and Donvale finished 50 adrift. Unfortunately I hear that Donvale has had to pull the plug due to lack of numbers. To the small band of boys who fronted every week, thank you for your efforts, you did your club proud battling against the odds every week.


Both Blackburn Sth and Vermont were desperate for a win, Vermont to keep their unbeaten record intact and Blacky Sth to get their season back on track. The Eagles found runs hard to come by and no batsman was able to dominate the score against accurate bowling from Keiran Van DerWal and Jarrod Smith. Conor Spinks continued his fine form with the bat for a valuable 41 ably backed up by Danny Ryan, but Blacky Sth would have been satisfied to keep them to 9/152cc.


Unfortunately Day 2 never went to plan for the Mirrabooka boys with wickets falling steadily to a consistent Vermont attack to fold all out for 107 and well short. This win was very much an Eagles team effort with everyone making a contribution to the cause.


Park Orchards welcomed Forest Hill in what shaped as the hardest game to predict in the round. The Zebras batted first and whilst several players got a start, none took the game by the throat and a final score of 5/116 was disappointing. Gavin Carusi 2/15 had the best Zebra figures.Forest Hill must have been confident as Chris Thomson and Ben Matthews gradually hauled the score in with a top 73 run partnership with plenty of talent still in the sheds. Lional Hunt caused a few heart flutters but the steady Zebras were able to secure the points on the day thanks mainly to Ben Matthews 53.


East Burwood recent batting woes continued against a determined Heatherdale. Sam Brooks 3/12 and Jarrod Parr 2/4 quickly got among them and apart from James Rizio’s fighting 35 a final tally of 124 was always going to be tough to defend. In replay Heatherdale’s batting was highlighted by an excellent 63 by Brendon Green with great back-up from Sam Brooks 53 and a 36 by Ben Joseph to run out comfortable winners. Mitch Gale 2/16 topped the East Burwood bowling.


Heathmont’s innings got off to a flying start, James Kelly 32 and Nathan Mullenger-McHugh 71* laying the foundation. Steve Brown 28 carried on the good work to close at 3/179cc.


Doncaster in reply were quickly in trouble as Josh Clark 2/2, Nathan Mullenger-McHugh 2/8 and Tom Delaney 2/7 shared the spoils cutting a swathe through the Doncaster line-up to roll them for 66 and pick up some valuable percentage points in the bargain whilst cementing 2nd position behind Vermont in the run to the finals.


Maddocks Sports Player of the Round goes to the excellent all-round performance of Heathmont’s Nathan Mullenger-McHugh. His 71* and 2/8 earns Nathan the Maddocks voucher – well done Nathan.


We are now in the last Round before Xmas and I would like to take the opportunity to wish all players, parents and support staff all the very best fro Xmas and the New Year. Have a great break but most importantly stay safe.



Aching limbs, aging knees and dicky hammy’s were all put on hold on Sunday when the cream of the Eastern Cricket veterans turned out for the 15th Annual battle between the Ringwood and District Cricket Assn (RDCA) and the Box Hill District Cricket Assn (BHRDCA) for the coveted “Colonels Cup” and bragging rights as the Premier Eastern Veterans Assn.


At Cheong Park, hard earned reputations meant little where the Over 60’s locked horns. Sent in first BHRDCA lost early wickets and it was left up to Stuart Stockdale who with a battling 41 (ret), ably supported with some lusty late hitting from Sri Rajah and Alan Ellis to see Box Hill through to 114/9cc in their allotted 36 overs. For Ringwood Paul Robinson and Graeme Seymour with 3 and 2 wickets each were the pick of the bowlers.


In reply Gary Paget and Bill Stafford had Ringwood off to a sound start putting on 32 for the first wicket. The Box Hill bowling was tight and coupled with a slow outfield Box Hill remained in the match. John Kent threw a spanner in the works as he collected 2 /11 in a great spell and when Garry Walles fell for a patient 21 it meant Ringwood needed 7 runs off the last over to get the required runs. Kent’s last over started sensationally with a wicket first ball, but the task proved just too much and it was a well struck 4 by Russell McNeill that saw Ringwood home with 2 runs to spare.


Meanwhile over at Fred Geale Oval, the O50’s saw Ringwood batting first. Anderton settled in early and along with Dale Goldsmith the score rose steadily, the pair adding 47 runs for the second wicket. Steve Teakel kept the run rate going and a late hard hitting 26* from Vaughan took Ringwood to a competitive 144/6 at the close of the innings. Dennis McNiece 2/13 returned the best bowling figures for Box Hill.


Box Hill skipper Frank McCann and fellow opener Darren McNeil were quickly into stride and their opening stand of 62 set a solid base for Box Hill’s run chase. Kevin Howell, Dave Jensen and David Corrigan all contributed valuable runs to the cause allowing Box Hill to knock off the required runs with 8 overs still to be bowled in an emphatic victory. Phil Kickleton and Artis both took two wickets for Ringwood.


This meant that the “Colonels Cup” was on the line at the Over 40 match at Croydon Oval. Ringwood batted first with Andy Wu and Craig Buchan looking very strong against some sharp Box Hill bowling both taking their scores into the 20’s. After 18 overs Ringwood were looking at posting a very competitive total but as o often happens runs began to dry up against great bowling by Narendran Shanmugratnam, Matthew Vittiritti and Dean Jones who combined to take 6 wickest for only 38 runs in their 15 overs to close Ringwood out at 132/8cc.


Box Hill lost two early scalps before Brett Cunningham 41 (ret), Dave Cronin 18, skipper Danny Taylor 43 (ret) and Dean Jones 22* led a strong revival getting Box Hill over the line with 7 overs to spare and secure the “Colonels Cup” for the Box Hill Assn


The big winner on the day was the sport of cricket. It was fantastic to see the game played in such a great spirit by two strong associations, adding yet another chapter to the intense but friendly rivalry that has grown over 15 years.

North Metro CA VS Box Hill Reporter District CA


The boys travelled to the lovely suburb of Sunshine looking for 3 wins out of 3 games and a semi final berth. Skipper Jarryd Taun-Henderson won the toss and we batted first on what ended up being a slow and lifeless deck. Will Hastings and Scott Edwards did the job opening the innings, taking the shine off the new ball and the grunt out of their opening bowlers. Hastings was dismissed for a fluent 8 and at 1/10 Michael Kitson strode to the crease. Coming off a cracking 183 in MS2 Kitson looked as though he had picked up exactly where he had left off at Ted Ajani Reserve the previous Saturday. The wide open expanses of Dempster Park weren’t big enough for the Englishman and he batted with a mixture of aggression, finesse and beauty on his way to a brilliant 103. In terms of run scoring Kitson played almost a lone hand but was aided by all of his partners to keep the scoreboard ticking over. At the end of our 40 overs we posted a  very competitive 168 on a very slow outfield.


Early wickets would be the key, and it was Kitson again that stood up to cap off a remarkable all round performance. His brilliant new ball spell of 3/21 left the opposition reeling at 4/21. They were never fully able to recover from a top order collapse. Some smart batting down the bottom saw the scoreboard look a little closer but 2/29 from Josh King and 2/24 from Josh Cunningham saw the NMCA all out for 146, 23 runs shy of the target needed.


Our boys finished on top of the ladder after 3 rounds of qualifying games. We travel to Malvern on the 12th of January to take on the Eastern Cricket Association in the first semi final.


Good luck lads!

McIntosh Shield Grade


Box Hill North Super Kings hosted the defending Premiers Heatherdale and the Dales batted first posting a respectable 9-254cc with Brenton Toole 54, Jarrod Thorpe 44*, the main contributors. But the match belonged to former Sri Lanka star Russell Arnold taking 5-73 and making 48 opening the batting to see the Super Kings take the points and get back in the top 4, they look threatening approaching the mid season break.


Blackburn South  were desperate to stay out of relegation contention and saw a chance against the winless Mitcham. Day 1 the Tigers could only manage 119 with Jason Thompson proving his class with the ball taking  5-34. Blackburn South faced a short session before stumps and were left at 3/25 at stumps and game on. Day 2 and the Cobras Seaton Mundy would turn the game once again hitting 50 with 5 towering 6’s to guide the Cobras to their second win of the season.


Vermont have gone to the top of McIntosh Shield ladder defeating arch rival East Box Hill scoring a massive 9-332cc on Day 1  with young gun Ben Gibson 86, Geoff Mann 47 and Brad Taylor 43 leading the way.  Chris Borg took 5-85 to be the best of the EBH bowlers. Chasing a big total was always going to be tough, and Mitch Rickarby crashed through EBH taking 8-56 to see them all out for just 85, following on East Box Hill finished at 2-109  to avoid an outright defeat.


St Davids hosting Templestowe would see two days of dramatic action with Templestowe only managing 86, Christian Slattery 4-41 for St Davids. The home side staggered to 118 with only Michael Enticott 62* standing firm and Templestowe skipper Andrew Hone outstanding with 8-44 for the visitors. Templestowe 2nd innings got to 9/140 (dec) with St Davids finishing at 4/56.


East Burwood won the toss and batting first posted 166, led by  Sean Bramstedt with 71, best for the Burners was Sujeewa Liyanage  returning 4-50. Blackburn got to 4/60 at stumps. Simon Cocks broke Blackburn with a stunning 7-52 to see them fold for 117 in a match winning performance. East Burwood’s 2nd time at the crease saw them limp to  8-62 and again Liyanage did the damage with 6-23. East Burwood’s win moves them to 6th place.


Bulleen Templestowe travelling to Forest Hill dismissed the ladder leaders for a disappointing 127. Lee Woolcock led the way for the Bullants with 4/23. After losing a couple of early wickets, Luke Mason, 55*, steadied the ship guiding the visitors to safety and 6-183. The Bullants now sit 2nd equal on wins with Vermont and Forest Hill.


Wilson Shield Grade


Laburnum hosted Doncaster and posted 326 with Matt Henderson 111, Ross Henderson 57, Ross Theunissen 43 the best, Sam Noble toiled manfully taking 6-59 for the visitors. Doncaster’s innings never got going and they were all out for 150, Ross Henderson had a handy double taking 6-25. Doncaster batting a second time finished at 6-146 with Mark Albiston with 75 showed the type of fight placking first time around. Ross Henderson snared 4-32 to give him 10 wickets for the match in an outstanding effort and surely the 3 votes.


Koonung Heights continued its great start to the season with a win over Mulgrave Wheelers Hill after restricting the home side to 9-156cc with Cameron ‘Hotel’ Hall taking 4-31. The Nungers got them 6 down with Sahan Pathirnana 37 and the consistent Clint Proctor 36 doing the job.


Eley Park hosting top of the ladder Blackburn North and after being sent into bat the Parkers would struggle to 7/100 at tea against a very strong bowling line up eventually being dismissed for 137. Youngster John Rozakis made 53 to be the only shining light for the Parkers scoring his first half century. Dean Burton’s 5-13 did the damage for the Bulldogs. They were never really troubled resuming at 1/44 with a Ben Davis unbeaten century led from the front to keep the Bulldogs undefeated.


In other games Kerrimuir United 4-183 easily passed Glen Waverley Hawks 182 to record back to back wins, while Vermont South 7-348cc led by Sudesh Umayanga Guruge 144 steamrolled Heatherdale who replied with 141 Vermont South now sit now in fourth spot on the ladder.

The Ebees Cricket Club was formed on a Sunday morning by three Burwood neighbours John O’Sullivan,Tony Toms and Kevin Horne in 1969.  From this social meeting came the idea to start up a cricket side. At a subsequent meeting called on the August 3rd 1969 the Ebees Cricket Club was formed.


From just fielding one senior team in 1969, the club has expanded to over 10 team ranging from Seniors, Juniors and Veterans and a Milo Cricket program for young children.


It wasn’t long before the Ebees were making a name for themselves in the BHRDCA, playing off in the finals in their first year only to be beaten by old foes Templestowe Footballers .They went one better in their second year by winning a senior premiership. Since then the club has gone from strength to strength winning premierships at all playing levels.


Our first premiership team in 1970/71 comprised of John O’Sullivan (Capt), Kevin Horne, Kevin Dows, Tony Toms, Vic Rodwell, Vruce Muitimer, Kevin Fareelly, Max Thomson, Tony Smith, Ron Mcnamara, Bob Jantke. Playing against Wattle Park the opposition batted first and made 196 EBEES were struggling st 9 for 120 when Captain John O’Sullivan in typical fashion, declared our innings closed and set about trying for a second innings win. It worked as Wattle Park were dismissed for 90 runs in their second innings leaving EBEES with 170 to win. EBEES passed this score for a memorable premiership Our supporters included at the game Barry Pearce and Eddie Madjeski who showered us all with champagne, Peter Taylor drank his fair share.


Then in 1971 a young player joined our under 12 side and soon made his mark as a player of the future – Dean Jones. Dean made centuries as a junior player and also performed well when he played in the afternoon our seniors. Dean was also a member of an Under 12 premiership team. We all congratulate Dean on his outstanding International career with Australia and his service to Victorian cricket.


From the successful early days we went onto win senior premierships 1970/71, 75/76,  76/77  ,78/79  ,80/81, 81/82, 83/84 , 85/86. 86/87, 89/90, 90/91, 92/93, 95/96


The early days of the EBEES were exciting ones with players the calibre of John O’Sullivan, Kevin Horne, Vic Rodewell, Kevin Dow, Noel Grayson, John Uren Ramsey Gunasekera, the Carter brothers Greg and Ted, the Muitimer brothers John & Bruce, Les Gosstray, Tony Toms, Ron McNamara, Ray Pearson, Kevin Farrelly, Colin Crowle ,Bob Jackson and many others.


1975 saw the club join the Oakleigh Districts Cricket Association and for two years we established ourselves as a force to reckon with, winning two premierships. Who could forget the last wicket partnership between Bruce Muitimer (70 runs) and Bob Jackson (52no) in 1975/76 which took the score from 9/120 to all out 244. The opposition were bowled out for 186 with Kevin Dows involved in a “Mancad”run out at bowlers end, and there was Ray Pearson and his team of youngsters who also won a thrilling Grand Final in 1976/77.


In 1978 the club changed its name to Eley Park Cricket Club and re-joined the BHRDCA, where our performances have been up with the best in the competition. We established our headquarters at the Eley Park Community Centre at long last we had some where to have our GRO-AX ‘s (Grog and Tarax). Up to this stage we relied on on the generosity of players to open up their homes for us to congregate after matches. Ian Belling’s garage (even if it was often flooded) was used, Bruce Muitimer’s backyard and Jhn Uren’s loungeroom were aso meeting placesafter matches.


At this stage we had some good youngsters coming through our junior teams. Warren Gibson, Greg Dows, David Muitimer, Tony & Daryl Grayson, David Bowen, Steven Jackson,Craig Davidson, Andrew Duncan and Scott Pearson. All these players have gone on to represent in our senior 1st sides. We have prided ourselves in looking after our juniors .


During the 1990’s our club has enjoyed many finals appearances in many grades in 1995/96 our C1 team had a great win in the Grand Final against


In 1997/98 the club appointed Robbir Jursonovics as Captain Coach with great results reaching the Grand Final against Mitcham at East Burwood. The Parkers were well in the contest having Mitcham 9  for 150 but a recod 10th wicket stand of 150 put the game out of reach. The sixths won a best of  three games in the Grand Final lead by some Darren Bookluck. They again went onto defend the tittle in 1998/99 in a memorable final at Blackbiurn.


In our 30th season our on field performance in Shield 1 was poor which saw the club relegated to A1. The only highlight of the season being the announcement of our Team of Century at a function at the Eley Park Community Centre.


In 2000/01 the club appointed Tony Wunhym as Captain Coach with immediate results making the Grand Final only to go down to a very strong Glen Waverley Hawks team. In 2001/02 we again managed to make the A1 Finals this time defeating Bulleen Templestowe in the Semi Final and then defeating our biggest Rival Blackburn South at Forest Hill Fraser Reserve to regain Shield 1 status similar to 1983/84. At 5 for 123 it appeared as though we were in trouble but a solid partnership by Patrick Luby and Matthew Whitbread guided us to 5 for 212 at stumps on Day one. On Day Two resuming at 5 for 212 we managed to get to 264 all out a reasonable target to defend. Our bowlers did the job bowling Blackburn South out for 114.


In 2002/03 we were very competitive winning 6 games missing the finals by 8 points, the following season after a good start to the season we faded only winning 5 games for the season finishing in ninth position.


At the start of the 2004-05 season the club appointed Ross Peterson as Club Coach and favourite son Glenn Comte as Captain with Comte coming home finally after a 10 year stint at Sub District club Box Hill. Both Shield 1 and Shield 2 teams finished on top of the ladder with the 2nd XI  & 3rd XI all eliminated in the Semi Final. The Shield 1 team won the Semi Final in a rain effected game chasing 129 off 54 overs to advance to the Grand Final.


The Grand Final was played at Walker Park with Eley Park winning the toss and batting making 6/247cc with Tony Wunhym 64 and Matthew Tynan making 42. Tony Wunhym sent butterflies through the Eley Park camp when he dropped a catch. But when Peterson whipped off the bails to dismiss the final batsman, the crowd and 11 players were whipped into a frenzy  The Parkers then recorded a magnificent win, to bring The McIntosh Shield home to its rightful home and break a long awaited drought.


The clubs First XI currently plays in Wilson Shield after being relegated at the end of the 2011/12 season. The club currently is rebuilding after some tough times. Eley Park has been a valuable part of the local community for over 40 years and is looking forward to an exciting future in the years to come.
