Our Season launch 2020/21 - cricket's on!
Moonee Valley's first function of the 2020/21 Season was a big success, with November 21 heralding in the Premiership defences of the Firsts and Fifths on our home turf - for a close win to the First Eleven and a tie for the Shiners.
Patrons had to observe the strict COVID-19 safety protocols, including limited numbers of guests seated in the pavilion and others being accommodated outside within the numbers cap set by the Government.
We had live music with Rick Gauci in the pavilion, while the Fifths took control of organising, cooking and dishing out the excellent barbecue and salad meal.
At right: From Premiers to bottle-washers! Fifths Grand Final winners Paddy Shelton (left) and Sam Kater cooked up a feast for the guests.
The juniors also had their own celebration earlier in the afternoon, with a barbecue for our players and families.
Both day and night events were an opportunity to welcome everyone back to the club for the season opener for the Firsts, Seconds and the Fifths.
The November 21/22 weekend also marked Round 2 for the Thirds, Fourths and Sixths, as Mercantile and the NWMCA started a week earlier.
The Sevenths and Eighths kicked off their 2020/21 season the day after the function while our Women’s team and the juniors have a start the following week.
For those new to the club, the function was a great chance to meet everyone - and hopefully share a few tales of the first games, or seasons past.
