President’s Report Finals everywhere, a flag in the 3’s, now let’s get some more!!

The club’s vision remains unwavering: to be the most welcoming and successful cricket club that provides cricket to boys and girls, men and women of all ages and abilities. We will provide development programs for beginners to elite turf cricket programs for seniors, and everything in between. A chance for every cricketer to realise their potential. Our female program continues to gather momentum. The appointment of Adam Drinkwell as head coach of the female program was a significant coup for the club. Adam is a highly credentialed cricket person who instantly made an impact on the female program during the season. It is very pleasing that Adam will continue in this role for at least the next two seasons.  On the field, our female cricketers performed very well. Our 1st XI continues to improve. Our 2nd XI played finals and our 3rd XI had a great run in the 20/20 competition. Our female playing list is developing every season. We have a great mix of experienced sports people and talented young female cricketers. With continued hard work, our time to reach the pinnacle of female Premier Cricket is drawing closer. The club is very committed to the further development of our female program and as I write much planning has already been completed in relation to development programs and recruitment for the season ahead. The VSDCA men had another strong campaign in 2017/2018. The club finished 5th in the Club Championship. All teams reached the semi-final stage with the 3rd XI winning a magnificent premiership!! Congrats to Lovey, Bakes, Rupi and the young guns in this team. James Dickinson was welcomed to the club as First XI skipper and impressed everyone with his professionalism, competitive strength and leadership skills.  The male program continues to be as good as any in VSDCA cricket and our reputation as a leading club remains intact. We have a very strong male playing list, filled with a wonderful mix of experienced cricketers and talented youngsters; the future is very bright. A couple of notable retirees at the club in the male program.  Matthew Hewat, after two seasons as head coach and First XI representative, has conceded that his body can take no more!! A big thanks to “Hewy” for his significant contribution to the club. I am sure Hewy will stay in touch. The other retiree is Justin Jaensch. We all thank “Jaesnchy” for his amazing contribution to our club over the past seven seasons. First and foremost, Jaenschy is the type of bloke every club needs - a true club person in every sense of the word. A terrific competitor on the field, a fine fast bowler and great fun off the field. A 1st XI premiership player! Thank you Justin for everything. I am very proud to have you as a close friend. Your contribution to our club has been very significant and will always be remembered. I hope Junior Justin arrives safely and that you and Lou enjoy immensely the wonderful time in your life that awaits!! I am sure we will see you around.  The club is very lucky to have the support of so many generous people and organisations. Through this support, the club is able to carry 

 

out the many community based programs undertaken, provide wonderful facilities at AK Lines and Yarrambat and compete well in the very strong cricket associations with which we are affiliated. I would like to thank the wonderful support and cooperation given to the club by Cricket Victoria, the Victorian Sub District Cricket Association, the Diamond Valley Cricket Association, the City of Banyule and the Shire of Nillumbik. I would also like to make a very strong and loud thank you to all our wonderful financial sponsors. Without your support, we could not be the big, successful and holistic club we have become.  Thanks to Chris Stevens for an outstanding job as net captain.  Congratulations to Glenn Marnell on your richly deserved award as Best Club person for season 2017/2018. You are the perfect example of a humble “un-sung” hero of a sporting club. Such is the environment we now operate in, for the committee there is very little “off season”. I would like to thank all members of the club’s committee for their valued contribution. I would like to say special thanks to all the members of the Bray family who all contribute so much to our cricket club. To all the players, members, supporters and friends, thank you for your continued support and dedication. Your loyalty and passion for our cricket club is inspiring. We are creating a truly unique and exciting cricket club. I implore everyone to give thought to joining the committee, and helping the club to continue to grow and prosper. I sincerely thank my wife Cathy and three sons Jay, Zac and Lane for their care, support and understanding. I love the game of cricket.  I love the environment we have created at our cricket club. The most rewarding outcomes are success and the development of life long friendships. In closing, we now look forward to another exciting season. Right now we all should have very high expectations for our own personal performance on the field next season and our commitment to the club off field. If we all can translate these plans into actions, we will be the envy of all other clubs. See you in the nets!!

Darren Callahan President   

 

 
Secretary’s Report

To my fellow Committee members, thank you for enabling our club to be one of the best managed and well run clubs in the various competitions.  This season saw us without hard wicket teams. This took some pressure off with paperwork but we still had to work hard to get the best out of our teams.  Our women’s 3rd XI withdrew from the one day competition but entered the T20 competition, finishing 2nd and missing the Final by percentage. This season again saw us with multiple internationals in both the men’s and women’s teams imparting great work ethics and wisdom to our younger players. Congratulations to the teams that made finals and well done to the Men’s 3rd XI on winning the premiership. Great work done by the coaches starting to pay off. A special thank you to Caroline Bray, Simon Bray and Sanjeet Ajgaonkar for covering my absence in January. I would also like to acknowledge the tireless work put in by Ken Hilton – VSDCA, Peter Binns – CV and Mike Ronchi - CV. Without their efforts our competitions would not be as successful as they are.  I look forward to continuing in the role and understanding more of how the Plenty Valley Cricket Club can become a significant force in Victorian Cricket for years to come.  So on to more successes for our club in 2018-19!

Treasurer’s Report

Financially, the 2017/18 season laid the foundations for the upgrade of our facilities to be the envy of any other cricket club in the country. Capital investment at Yarrambat was funded from our cash reserves, which was the beginning of overhaul of the facility. Further funds are being raised from a range of sources and allocated to further works in the 2019FY, specifically our new sixteen turf net practice facility. The year was well and truly in line with the club’s vision: ”To be the most welcoming and successful cricket club that provides cricket opportunity to boys and girls, and men and women, of all ages and abilities. We provide development programs for beginners to elite turf cricket programs for seniors, and everything in between. A chance for every cricketer to realise their potential.” Yarrambat is the heart of the Plenty Valley and we are committed to creating an elite turf facility for every cricketer to realise their potential. We were able to maintain a small surplus, whilst recording a cash deficit totally attributable to the initial investments at Yarrambat. After all, we are a not-for-profit club and our surplus funds are invested back to for the benefit of our members.  It was great to see the Women Second team making the finals. We are growing our strength in women competitions and I believe Adam Drinkwell and his team have us on the right track. Congratulations to all four Sub-District men sides for making it to the semifinals, which meant the club finished fifth in the Club Championship. Specific congratulations to the 3rd XI led by the youngsters of Lovey and Bakes for bringing home a flag. Personally, I’d like to wish both Justin Jaensch and Matthew Hewat all the best in their retirement. You have both supported me in my cricketing endeavours and I am a better player and person as a result of playing with both of you. I am sure this is echoed by others at the club also.  Income and expenditure We recorded a surplus of around $3.5k (2017: $9.2k). Key elements to the surplus figure in 2018FY are: • Social functions income- Increase 50%. Additional time allocated to these events this year. Special thank you Glenn Marnell & Michael Bray who introduced new fund raisers such as the Trailer Raffle and Toyota “Good for Cricket” raffle. I’d like to also make mention of Plenty Valley’s power couple, Jack McLagan and Cherie Hallett, for stepping up and getting involved with fundraising for the club. It is truly a thankless job, so please get behind anything they do next year and always ask if they need a hand.  • Sponsorship income- Stable. DVCA members broke off on their own this year causing our membership base to be reduced by half. Despite this we were able to maintain the levels of our sponsorship income. We are very appreciative of the support always provided to us by our many sponsors.  We know that all members work hard for their money, so being able to keep this income line stable shows that the committee have been able to communicate our direction for cricket in the area. Please refer to our list of sponsors on page 9 of the report and support them accordingly.  • Membership Income- 60% Decrease due to no DVCA membership income. This brought in around $17k in membership via senior men and juniors. There was also one less ladies side which is evident in the ladies membership line. 

 

• Operating expenses- Decrease 15%. General decrease across the board due to DVCA going off on their own. Major decrease associated with bar expenses, merchandise and cleaning expenses. Utilities increased from 2017 due to an under accrual for Laurimar expenses in last year’s accounts.  Capital Expenditure As mentioned above capital expenditure was the focus of the year, spending around $20k. Additional three wickets at Yarrambat (including removal of old synthetic pitch), initial costs for the Yarrambat turf net project (sixteen turf nets currently being built) and two pitch covers (to ensure we play more cricket) were the major items.   Cash Position By the time all cash relating to the 2018 financial year has been collected and paid out, $17k will be held in cash by the club. $7k will be held in operating cash accounts, with the remaining balance of $10k remaining in the interest bearing investment accounts which is set aside for the further development of the Yarrambat facility.  Budget 2019FY We expect to maintain a small budgeted surplus in the 2019FY. We expect the further payments and resources for the Yarrambat turf net project to be fully funded by grants and member donated labour. We have enough handy people around the club, so please put up your hand and help out when you can.  In order for us to generate income and make Plenty Valley the best place to play cricket we need every member’s help. I’d like to thank every club member for helping the club generate these much needed funds, whether it was staying round and having a drink after the game or participating in Plenty Valley social events. Every little effort helped and was greatly appreciated.  A full summary financial report is set out later in this document. I would like to thank HMH Advisory for their services in compiling the financials at no cost to the club. Thank you to the committee for electing me in into the position. It helps me in my professional development and I love learning from the incredible people on our committee. Thank you to the official Assistant Treasurer Sanjeet Ajgaonkar, who took on a greater role in this year, specifically running the invoicing of players for their subscriptions. We know we all live busy lives, so it is great to have you put up your hand to help out. To Mum, thank you for being my “unofficial” Assistant Treasurer and keeping the girls down at Bendigo Bank Diamond Creek entertained.   See you all in season 2018/2019  #batnation

Kookaburra, Legends & Heroes, VB - Carlton & United Breweries As major sponsors of the VSDCA we take this opportunity to thank you for the valuable support you provide to our competition. We look forward to your continuing relationship for the mutual benefit of your business and our member clubs. 

Cricket Victoria Thanks to Cricket Victoria for its continuing support of the Plenty Valley Bats Cricket Club; and also the encouragement to pursue our aspirations. We will do so, and aim to contribute strongly to cricket in Victoria.

VSDCA Executive  From the Committee, players and supporters of the PVCC we wish to extend our thanks and appreciation to the office bearers / executive of the VSDCA. The regular contact and ease of access to members of the executive to seek advice or discuss issues is of great benefit to our Club. Clearly the VSDCA competition is professionally run and PVCC is proud to be a member of it. 

Nillumbik Shire We are very appreciative of the shire’s continued support for us in using the Yarrambat ground, and now the significant financial support for our turf wicket practice facility. We are delighted about how our relationship with the Nillumbik Shire Council has developed, and particularly the strong support at Council level, led by Deputy Mayor, Karen Egan. The ground and turf wicket at Yarrambat is widely regarded as one of the best in the VSDCA and Women’s Premier Cricket. 

City of Banyule  We are very appreciative of the City of Banyule, who we continue to see as a major sponsor of the PVCC, such is the level of support with the provision of facilities we enjoy at AK Lines Reserve. We extend our thanks to all council officers and employees whose hard work ensured our Club had access to such wonderful playing and social facilities throughout the season.

Social Report

The 2017/18 season saw a few new faces at our social functions. With the help of Damien Stevens, Jack McLagan and Cherie Hallett we brought back some of the club’s old favourites.  The committee did as much as they could to make the days run smoothly and the response to the functions were rewarding. However there is still a fair bit of work to be done to ensure our functions cater for all ages and we have more new faces attending.  This year we had a small group who ran the functions, whilst organising other players and club members to help out on the day. This enabled us to have more hands on deck and got the wider club involved to play a part. We received mostly positive feedback from club members and non-club members about our events, however the numbers we had at the functions did not always reflect this.  The events ran in 2017-18 were:

Ipod shuffle night – An old favourite for the club, where everyone chose their favourite songs and enjoyed a night of dancing and sing a longs.  Thank you to Jack and Damo for their fantastic efforts to make this night enjoyable for all. 

Plenty Valley Back to school- We celebrated the start of the second half of the season with a back to school night. A successful night of making new friends and finding old friends who went to the same school. 

$5,000 draw- Great effort by Darren Callahan, Simon Bray, Michael Bray and all involved for the day to continue to make this event successful. There was a bit of mixed feedback about this event, which committee members will assess and look to improve for next year. 

Ladies day- A day for the ladies of the club to relax and enjoy a day of laughter, fun and afternoon tea. Meanwhile the men’s First XI were playing at A K Lines. It was great to have the lady bats, players’ partners, sponsors and friends attend the day. 

We will look forward to moving into the 2018/2019 season and hope to see more new faces at our functions and make it the best year yet.  We encourage the support from all club members, whether it is attending the functions, or getting involved in making the functions a success. All funds raised are for us to get the best out of our cricket experience. Thank you to all for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the next social event. 

See you all in 2018-2019

Senior Womens Coach’s Report

It’s strange how the stars can align at times!! From a quick like on the Facebook page, to a meeting with Hewy followed by meeting with the President, the process of becoming the Head Coach of the Female program at the club happened really quickly!! From then it was down to business to get the wheels in motion for a pre-season campaign which focused on building the basic skills of the players. We copped some setbacks early in pre-season with some senior players deciding to move to other clubs and then some injuries to a few of our young stars. However, we regrouped and with the addition of some new faces, we were ready to tackle the season ahead. The appointment of Meagan Ciavarella as captain of the 1sts and Cherie Hallett of the 2nds was welcomed with great enthusiasm as both took on the roles for the first time. It is never easy being captain and both ladies dedicated themselves to the job and no doubt learnt a lot about themselves and cricket along the way. It is important as a club we continue to develop leaders. The group needs more leaders and we will endeavour to do our best to provide opportunities for this to happen. Our season in the 1sts was a roller coaster. 2 close losses early in the season and a couple of washouts added to the frustration of all. We then hit the T20 games with a big win over Coburg but once again a couple of close losses opened up old wounds. Sophie Reid, Jacinta Goodger-Chandler, Rhiann O’Donnell and Meagan all showed good form with the bat but unfortunately, we struggled to take wickets at regular times. After Christmas started in great fashion with a big T20 win over Dandenong. Providence Cowdrill was the star taking 5/6!! Our T20 season finished with a disastrous performance against Ringwood but the group showed terrific character and maturity to beat Prahran by 6 runs the following week as we resumed our 1-day season. We would finish the season off with a good win against Dandenong with our bowling attack firing and delivering a great finish to the season. Congratulations to Jane Riley, Letesha Bawden, Providence Cowdrill, Sam Hamilton, Amy McCann and Georgia Gall who all made their Premier Cricket debuts this season. It was also great to see Tayla Vlaeminck back on the field for the club following a frustrating 2 years with injury. The 2nds had a terrific season. Led brilliantly by Cherie with the support of Natasha and Alissa, the team produced consistent and solid performances throughout the 1-day and T20 campaigns. At times, there were some struggles with player numbers but everyone who played throughout the season made contributions. Alissa was brilliant with the bat, Sam & Amy continued their rapid improvement from baseballers to cricketers; Scarlett, Jas Nevins and Tash led the attack most weeks with the ball whilst Jess Murray’s improvement as a wicket keeper was great to see. The team finished 3rd on the ladder and faced EMP in the Semi. Unfortunately, our batting let us down despite gallant efforts from Drew, Jess & Cherie. We bowled well but did not have enough runs on the board and so the season was over.  With a player shortage upon us at the start of the season, we decided to pull out our 3rds from the WCCC 1-day competition and just enter the T20 season. This proved popular as Claudia led the team to an undefeated season. It was great to see some of our older players return to the club as well as a host of fresh young faces. Unfortunately, a couple of wash outs meant our team missed the Grand Final due to run rate but the ladies had a fun time in what was a short and compact season. There are many people I would like to thank for their contribution to the program throughout the season:

• My Coaching Staff - Ashur Morrison, Tim Sheehan, Ray Bright, Sam Hamilton & Amy McCann. They did an outstanding job and without their services and knowledge, then the program falls down. Each brought a different skill set and were able to contribute to the development of the players. • My Captains - Meagan Ciavarella, Cherie Hallett, Tash Noblett & Claudia Fatone. Thank you for your support throughout the season. Being captain can be very hard at times both on and off the field so well done on the leadership you have provided for the players.

• Support Staff - Dirk Jones. To sit and score and go through the ups and downs of the game each week takes great patience and understanding so a big thank you to Dirk for taking on this role in the 1st XI. Dirk wears his heart on his sleeve and provided me great insights throughout the season. Big thank you also to Pat Drinkwell who helped out with the catering for the 1sts throughout the season.

• The Club - Big thank you to the club committee especially Darren and Stevo. Their tireless work curating the wicket at Yarrambat and their support for the program is greatly appreciated. 

 
15 
• The Players - Thank you to all the players who played this season. Thank you for your contribution and willingness to be coached, to learn more about the game, and to strive to get better. 

I would like to congratulate the following players on their individual achievements throughout the season:

• Tayla Vlaeminck – Victorian Spirit debut and squad member, Melbourne Renegades squad member, selection in CA XI to play Engalnd, selection in the Australian U19 South African Tour squad

• Rhiann O’Donnell – Victoria Spirit squad member, Melbourne Renegades squad member.

• Letesha Bawden – Victorian U15 Country squad member, Northern Rivers U16 squad member

• Jasmine Nevins – Victorian U15 Country squad member, Northern Rivers U14 squad member

• Georgia Gall – Victorian U15 Country squad member, Northern Rivers U14 squad member

• Sophie Reid – Victorian Spirit Emerging Players Squad

• Julia Carruthers – Inner East U18 squad member

• Jess Murray – Inner East U18 squad member

• Emma Sands – Northern Falcons U16 squad member

• Jacinta Goodger-Chandler – Victorian Indigenous Squad member and Captain

• Simone Burridge – Victorian Indigenous Squad Member

Playing premier cricket is a great honour. To move forward as a club, it should be every player’s ambition to play Premier Cricket and succeed. It’s an attitude that the players need to adopt and something that as coach, I will look to drive in the coming season. I look forward to the hard work that the players and coaching staff will undertake as we look to push the limits of our improvement in our technical, mental and physical capabilities.

CAPTAIN’S REPORT

The 2017/18 season for the 1st X1 was one where we ultimately fell short of a premiership but saw a great deal of achievements both individually and as a team. Factors that were obvious during the season that will hold us in good stead for next year were the periods of disciplined team cricket, introduction of several debutantes into the team, improvement of individuals and a strong group vibrancy. These achievements could not have been completed without the support of people associated with the team throughout the year. The year started with a feeling of unfinished business from the previous year’s grand final loss. The team however had a fresh look with some new faces being introduced for round one. These included myself, Ryan Pearson, Ash Morrison, Jack McLagan, Adam Drinkwell and Joe Peatman.  During the first half of the year we saw large periods of strong team cricket that was highlighted with individual performances to see us 2nd on the ladder at Xmas. The team approach of the group was best evident in the match against Brunswick at AK Lines Reserve where we met a team that was undefeated and high on confidence. Batting first after being put in by the opposition we were able to absorb the new ball pressure by placing a high value on our wicket, and go into the break only 3 wickets down. Following the break and a fatiguing bowling crew, we compiled a competitive total above 200 by batting all our overs and give our extensive bowling line up a score to defend. Our attacking openers broke the back of Brunswick’s much touted top order with aggressive new ball bowling. Following the initial onslaught, we entered a grind for the remaining wickets. In this situation we restricted scoring and saw their batsman relent through pressure and voice. This method emphasized the ability of our group to play finals style cricket that was going to get us the premiership we were focused on. Notable individual efforts that are worth noting and helped us enter Xmas 2nd on the ladder was Big Joe Peatman’s 5 wicket carnage and Pearso’s captivating 135 not out against Coburg, Heat’s consistent delivery of runs and Blacky’s aggression which saw his wicket tally amongst the competitions highest. Also, not to forget was the big fella’s 90 against Preston to control the run chase and get the points.  Following the Xmas break we saw some inconsistencies creep into our approach and method which saw us suffer several losses. However, through the darkness emerged opportunity in the form of debutantes. We saw Sanjeet, a guy at the club for basically his whole life get a chance to experience first X1 cricket for the first time to which he acquitted himself extremely well. It also gave the young and confident beast in Tane Cotter a chance to prove himself. Which he did in spades by pairing up with the man, Sean Ayres and bowl us to victory against the eventual premiers Williamstown in the 1st final. This game also, on the back of strong seasons but also some hard times, gave the Di Battista boys Justin and Mike a chance to come together and give us some grunt through voice and application.  Despite the ups and downs of the second half of the season our efforts still gave us a chance to go all the way by finishing amongst the top six to play finals. Our two finals games in a lot of ways defined our season which had periods of strong team cricket but also lapses that we couldn’t control well enough. The first final against Williamstown has been described by a lot of the players involved as one of the best wins they have been a part of. It showed our capabilities to play for each other and display a team based method to achieve a memorable win. It had mirroring similarities to the Brunswick game in the approach where we set a total and could pressure the top ranked team on their home turf with consistent bowling, energy and voice. The next final went to show that we have some areas to work on and brought about the end to our season. The season does not come together without off field support. Michael Bray weekly brought professionalism and dedication to his scoring efforts. Greg Heatley displayed his diligence and passion to the game by supporting us in anyway needed on game day. Ash Fellows made sure we were entertained and hydrated with the chilled gatorades from his esky. Ben Livy’s quiet duties were pivotal in the smooth running of the day. Darren Callahan’s relentless work around the club was felt through the team and drove a lot of our intensity toward our goal of winning a premiership.

The conclusion of the season also drew a close to two notable people at PVCC. Justin Jaensch called it a day to his playing career and will leave a huge hole in the team and the club. As everyone will attest to, Justin bought talent with the ball and leadership amongst the group. His quality as a bloke will be sorely missed to the culture of the team. Matt Hewat’s two-year stint at the club not only bought success on the field but he also influenced many with his enjoyable nature and approach to the game.  The 2017/18 had loads of achievements despite not attaining the ultimate prize. The development of the group was strong both individually and as a team. This mixed with a year of experience together and application to the team approach we set our sights firmly on winning the premiership in the 2018/19 season.  James Dickinson Captain #batnation

 Captain Meagan Ciavarella Ladder position: 5th Batting award Sophie Reid Bowling award Providence Cowdrill Captain’s report

2017/18 found us with a new coach and a new outlook.  With a tough first few round losses I think we held ourselves well and improved throughout the season and I think next season we will be on the improve again.  We also had Rhiann O'Donnell and Taylor Vlaeminck who represented the Melbourne Renagades, they were a massive help bringing their knowledge across. I wish them all the best in their ventures! We also had an import from England, Providence Cowdrill, who provided us with a much needed leg spinner and reliable bat.  We had Letesha Bowden and Jasmine Nevins who played in the Under 15 championship. All good things for the future of our club!  Here's to looking forward to a good pre-season and an exciting new season!

Second XI - VSDCA

Captain Glenn Butterworth Batting average Sanjeet Ajgaonkar Bowling average Mussadiq Ladder position 3rd

CAPTAIN’S REPORT

Firstly, I’d like to thank Hewy and Calla for the opportunity to lead the 2nd XI this season. With the club’s reputation and leadership with Dicko, Lovey and Bakes, and Stevo as chairman of selectors, I knew I was going to be part of a well ran ship. We started the year off well with a close win in a one dayer at Yarrambat. Jeet and Musa showed early signs of what was to come during the season. Round 2, a 2 dayer, and a very clinical win over Coburg and contributions from all bowlers and lots of bats and we were shaping up as nice little outfit. Rounnd 3 and a narrow victory and momentum started to build. We then ventured down to Werribee and lost a game we had in the bag for most of the two days. We had Taylors Lakes on the ropes before being washed out and signs were promising. Then we hit a road bump against Brunswick, our only real major bad day at the office. After keeping them to a modest score, we were skittled cheap nearly twice. We followed with a loss to Preston and compounded by a lot of player changes due to commitment and unavailability, we had to resettle ourselves and get a good team brand of cricket going again. We had an easy victory against Melton to bring us into the break with a bit more positivity.  After Xmas we were washed out against Willie then headed into a winning stretch that would take us into 3rd position by season’s end. We really gelled, Nath and Mitch cemented themselves as reliable mediums who bowled very economically, Smithy could do some strike bowling, and the spin twins Musa and Tane were bowling tight and taking wickets at will. Combined with Jeeta and Bluey making tons, Dibs and Tails being consistent, and then adding Mikey into the mix our batting was top draw. The QF was one for the ages. From a shaky start, debutant Charlie Love stood up with a very mature 40, steering us back on track and setting a total of 216. The game was neck and neck for most of the journey. We got our heads in front thanks to Bakes and Nath’s tight bowling, but a few misdirected balls and some lucky blows and they were back in front. With scores tied going into the last over, 9 down, Musa bowled their number 9 to have us win as highest finisher and face Werribee in the Semi. The SF was played on Werribee 3rd’s and 4th’s ground and was far from an ideal finals pitch. We fought our way to 134 thanks to Mikey and Hewy and headed out to bowl at them on Day 1. We managed some early wickets having them 4/27 and game on coming back the next day. As with making a score of 134, we had to take our chances to take the chocolates. To the bowlers’ credit we did enough, creating 14 or 15 chances, but couldn’t snatch them up.  They passed us 8 down and breathing a huge sigh of relief. We had to end our season there, knowing we’d done enough to win, but left with only the bitter taste of defeat. Thank you to the 26 players we donned the field with me this season, some good fun, some good cricket and some good friendships made. Thanks also to Meagan Ciavarella who sub fielded for us, huge thanks to Glenn Marnell for the awesome job with the book. Tails for his on field leadership and support. To the support crew at AK Lines each week, the parents who catered at certain times of the year, and to all the other players at Plenty Valley for making it a great season for the club.

Second XI – Womens Premier Cricket

CAPTAIN’S REPORT

First of all, I would like to say a massive thank you to Adam Drinkwell and Ashur Morrison for their commitment, support and being a fantastic addition to our women’s program. We learnt a lot about ourselves and the game. Also thank you to Sam and Amy who were incredible fielding coaches, role models and continuously learning about the game. Although Adam could not attend every game, Ashur was always reliable and organised for game day. Their efforts at training and preparing us for game days definitely showed when we all took the field and it was enjoyable to have a coach at each game to help us through the day.  We had a successful season in the Women’s Premier Seconds, finishing 3rd on the ladder and making it to the semi-finals. Coming off last year, where we were able to just sneak into the semis, we worked hard at training to win games and gained the insight that we could do anything as a playing group.  Our team was made up of a mix of experienced and new players, who all worked well together and allowed all players to feel welcomed and enjoy coming to cricket each week. A big thank you to Tash and Winky who were great leaders and role models throughout the whole season, particularly when I was away.  We started off with a win in the first game and from there on continued to improve each week. Unfortunately we had a few injuries this season which led us into being down a few players throughout the season, however in the 2’s we were able to call in some last minute players who instantly gelled as a team and provided a positive environment for all players.  Essendon, Melbourne and Boxhill were always a good opponent to play, particularly Essendon whom we struggled to beat throughout the season. The challenges we faced when playing these stronger teams only made us work harder - we definitely had close calls to all teams.  There were quite a few standouts for the season, including consistent batting from Alissa Sharp, Emma Leatham taking on the role of being an opening bat alongside Jess Murray who aimed to get us off to a good start. Sam definitely showed improvements this year with both bat and ball where she showed integrity and willingness to take every opportunity. Scarlett showed great courage being able to come in at number 4-6 and kept us steady when we had lost a few wickets. Emma Sands was definitely one to watch, particularly in our last game against Box Hill where she was able to keep us in the game and set us up well going into finals. Drew Barnes definitely showed strength in our semi-final against EMP, she held up her end well and never gave up.  Natasha Noblett always being a great role model and sustaining a position as an opening bowler, Sarah Sansonetti and Scarlett Cummane always taking on the challenge to open the bowling with Tash and being able to try new things with the ball. Amy McCann accepted every challenge set and did it with style. Letesha Bawden and Jas Nevins were always consistent with bowling the entire season.  It was an absolute pleasure to be a member of this team and to have the chance to captain such a fantastic playing group. Thank you to all the players who assisted our team when we needed players, we wouldn’t have got to the finals without the commitment, fight and courageous attitudes. Hopefully this is a foundation that we are able to build on in the coming seasons. We will definitely be working hard over the preseason, so I hope to see all sides playing in the finals series in the future.

CAPTAIN’S REPORT

First of all I would like to thank the parents and supporters for their commitment to getting the kids to and from the grounds each week. To the committee I would like to thank them for their amazing efforts throughout the year and also your ongoing support to the kids in the 3rds. Great job guys. As Captain of the 3rds, and in conjunction with Calla & Bakes, it was decided to create a development side to represent the club at this level as we felt it was in the best long term interests of the PVCC moving forward with this talented group of kids. To see how far the kids have come from early pre-season and countless extra hours in the nets, extra before and after training, and just 100% commitment throughout the year to where you are now, is a credit to all of you. The development in your skills as cricketers and as young men - I couldn’t be more proud of you all.  To go through the home and away season only losing two games and not dropping a finials game was an outstanding effort by all. To win a flag is not an easy task. We definitely had the ability with our youth and experience with in the group.  This year Jimmy Baker bagging 34 wickets with an average of 14.39 and player of the match in Grand Final is something special and a great achievement, Jim. Well done also to Nick Wallace - an outstanding year with 484 runs two hundreds, one being 162 with a average of 44.80. Well done Nick. One more I would like to mention is Louis Macciocca. Louise played 10 games and got 431 runs at a average of 71.8, with 4 not outs and 105 in a quarter final. You don’t get much better than that. Well done Louis - outstanding effort.  To all who played in the finals and grand finial side - it’s something special to play in a grand final, and to win one is an experience and feeling you should all never forget. You all did yourself proud and all of you contributed to wining that flag throughout the year and all finials games. It’s been an absolute pleasure being able to have captained everyone that played under me, so thank you. To Bakes, I can’t thank you enough for your support to me and absolute pleasure playing with you throughout the year. It’s been a great journey with this group of players and the work you have put in to so many players at PVCC is a credit to you. Bakes - outstanding teacher of cricket and bowling - thanks mate. Big thinks to Peter Cuthbert for being our team manager and scoring all year. Thanks Peter. To Calla, Hewy Dicko, Butters and Stevo, thanks for your support to Bakes, the 3rds and I throughout the year. Much appreciated. All you guys should be very proud of your commitment and efforts. Great job boys.

CAPTAIN’S REPORT

The PVCC VSDCA 4th XI had an outstanding season in 2017/218. The team finished 1st at the end of the home and away season. We bore the brunt of selection issues on quarter final weekend losing to Yarraville. We played a strong Brunswick team in the semi-final, the game ending in a tie. We did not progress to the big dance as the lower ranked side. However, as a club we were clearly the winners over the semi final weekend, with our class as people and cricketers showing through strongly. The season was filled with highlights. Some of these highlights came from seasoned veterans like Rupi, Boo, Matt Lemire and Dave Wallace. However, there is no doubt that the biggest and best highlights came from the young group of boys who showed immense talent and amazing maturity in the heat of battle. Their collective futures are very bright. I look forward to watch the continued development of young stars like Jai Lemire, Mitch Harris, Ikroop, Kyle Smith, Reece Parkin and James Wallace. We have a wonderful group of young players that comprise the core of our lower XI’s. The continued exposure to finals cricket these players are experiencing is certainly important for their long-term development. My sincere thanks to all the parents and supporters who made my job on match day so easy. The 4th XI was a wonderful place to be around.

Captain Claudia Fatone Ladder Position: 2nd  Batting average No qualifier Bowling average No qualifier

Captain’s report 

This season the club entered a third female XI team in the Cricket Victoria Women’s Community Cricket North Zone T20 competition only.  Unfortunately we struggled for numbers early in the season so were unable to compete in the one day competition. The T20 competition consisted of five matches, unfortunately two matches were washed out meaning only three matches were played.  However we were able to win all three matches and finish on equal top position, on points, with Melbourne University.   Only the top team progressed to the final (against the top placed team in the T20 West Zone competition) and as Melbourne University had a better percentage they progressed to the final. The purpose of the team was very much developmental  - to provide younger and less experienced players with exposure to open age cricket but at a more appropriate level than Premier Cricket.   Although we struggled for numbers we were able to provide opportunities to a range of young, and not so young players.   

Those players to debut for PVCC in the women’s 3rd XI this season were:

Anelise Burgess #368

Alissa Niel  #369

Morgan Gandolfo #370

Keely Gaunt  #371
