Welcome to Season 2016/17 Mernda Family!

As we get ready to embark on the year ahead, let’s take a minute to reflect on a #FeelGoodFriday moment for our club…

This weekend will be a very special one for our Club and for one father-son combo in particular – Paul and James Baker.

With Jimmy making his senior debut this week, he’ll join his old man on the field for the very first time. This would have to be one of Bakes’ proudest moments in a career that we could go on all day about! Here’s a picture of Jimmy being presented with his Mernda cap by Club Legend, Jack Gleeson.

These two will join previous father-son combos who have played together for our great club over the years including Colin, Jordan and Callum Dean; Russ, Brent and Luke Bailey; Jack and Brendan Gleeson; Mark and Cooper Perrin; Glen, Mitch and Braydon Peterson; Stephen and Brenton Morrison; Kevin and Jarmyn Marshall; Murray and Dayne Kellett; Rick, Tom and Chris Deayton; Steve, Matt and Brad Czerny and Vinny and Brian Hanlon (sorry if we missed anyone!).

That list of names just goes to show what a rich and valuable history our great club and we’re sure it makes everyone proud to call yourself part of it!

Let’s not forget all our other Mernda debuts this week either: Josh Nixon, Akila Isanka, Maddy Bisht, Dammika Parera, Brendan Hodges, Aaron Greenough and Michael Talbot.

Good luck to everyone and GO MERNDA!

 Junior Sign Up Night II

We had such a successful night the first time around, that we've decided to have another go an recruiting the next generation of Mernda Superstars!

With some pretty high enquiry levels and demand for another sign up night following on from the 17th of August, we're giving any and all Junior players the chance to come along on FRIDAY 2nd SEPTEMBER to sign up for season 2016/17.

This is a really important night, as there will only be VERY limited opportunity to register after this night - We have a deadline to meet with the Diamond Valley Cricket Association in terms of team numbers for the coming season so if you're interested, PLEASE do as much as you can to attend on the 2nd.

The venue will be the same as our first night - Waterview Recreation Reserve on Waterview Drive, Mernda and we'll be there between 5pm - 6:30pm.

We currently field junior teams in U16s, U14s, U12s, U12s and U10’s Modified as well as the highly popular Milo in2CRICKET and this year we will be hosting a T20 Blast program. We will also offer GIRLS ONLY teams this year for girls aged 10 – 14.

We’re seeking boys AND girls of ALL ages to have a game with us in 2016/2017.

We will have merchandise and EFTPOS facilities available for parents who may want to pay memberships on the night.

We're asking ALL of our current junior players and parents that are yet to sign up again to come along as well to update your details if you can. This will help us with team numbers, etc as we get closer to the season.

We'll have our junior coordinators, coaches and Milo coordinator there on the night to answer any and all questions you have about the upcoming season.

Please invite all of your friends, the more the merrier!
