Our past & our present come together
There were blasts from the past and stars of the future when the Moonee Valley Cricket Club held its season opening function on November 27.
The function was a joint effort with the Moonee Valley Cricket Club Past & Present Players & Supporters group, and it was great to see some of the players who helped forge our destiny back at Ormond Park.
And talk about luck! He seems to do it every time, but Life Member Michael "Mickster" Cumbo AGAIN won the raffle.

It was great to see past players such as Greg Meyers, Gary Dudderidge, Gary Johnson, Warwick Nolan and Gary Irons back at Ormond Park, and players with a long and still ongoing history at Moonee Valley, such as Ed Nott, Ian Denny, John Talone and Kevin Gardiner.
We were also well represented by our current players, and thanks to Dom Rettino and the winning crew from the Fifths, who organised the catering for the night. Much appreciated to the Shiners!
Thanks also to Sandro Capocchi, Dean Lawson and John Talone for their excellent work in establishing the Past & Present Players group and the excellent Facebook page to keep everyone in touch. All past players and supporters who have not yet come on board with the Facebook page are urged to do so asap - there's plenty of fun and memories, including Sandro's call for "funniest moments" - which seemed to backfire on him!
