Maribyrnong Park St Mary’s Cricket Club is a new club formed in 2011. We are a family friendly club with new members always welcome. We provide cricket for all ages including:
Our members have access to the best facilities available including brand new clubrooms and social facilities, recently renovated training nets and a new turf wicket. All of our turf and non turf games are conveniently played at home, being Maribyrnong Park Reserve.
Maribyrnong Park St Mary’s CC is a combination of Maribyrnong Park CC and St Mary’s CC. Both clubs have enjoyed a lot of success in recent years and with the clubs recently banding together, we expect this trend to continue. The merge warranted many years of negotiating and a lot of hard work with the end result being two great local clubs joining forces to become one, providing the local community with a new and exciting place to enjoy cricket.
This season we will be entering four senior turf and non turf teams as well as four junior teams into local associations. We will also be hosting the Cricket Victoria Milo IN2Cricket program for kids from 5 - 10 years old.
With the MMVCA no longer existing, all turf teams from the MMVCA have moved over to the VTCA. It is a new experience for our senior turf cricketers and creates new challenges for both players and the club and we are confident we have the right mix to be up there come finals time next year.
The VTCA is a highly regarded association; it is well run by their committee and quoted as being a step under sub district level providing an exciting brand of cricket. It considered the largest ‘turf only’ cricket competition in the Southern Hemisphere, it has over 80 clubs competing in two main divisions across Melbourne, North and South.
Our first and second XI will compete in the North B level which consists mainly of clubs that were previously playing in the MMVCA. For more information about the VTCA, I encourage you to go to their website and have a look - www.vtca.asn.au
Our non turf teams, our third and fourth XI (a one day side), will be playing in the newly formed NWMCA. This is a merged association which has teams from the NWCA and the MMVCA. If you are interested in more information, you can go to the NWMCA website which is www.nwmca.vic.cricket.com.au
