Season Wrap – 1st XI

The 1st XI had their best season in a long time, but unfortunately fell short of what was hoped. At the end of the regular season we were top of the ladder by nine points, and had a noted improvement in our Two Day cricket in comparison…

Season Wrap – 2nd XI

The season was a disappointment for the 2nd XI after a strong start to the season. Our captain Mark Dwyer had an unfortunate injury over the summer break, and the loss of leadership was felt as we won only one game after the break. Our batting…

The 4th XI, on the back of Assistant Coach Neil Gray, held up their end of the bargain, but the other three teams weren’t able to threaten Monash on the weekend, in the last round before finals. The weekend’s results, with Dandenong’s 1st XI losing, meant…
