|Knox City Cricket Club
Established in the season of 1973/74 by the late Alan Cant and Terry McIvor, the Knox City Cricket Club (formerly Boronia United until 1980) was named after the Council in which it resides and is situated at the Lewis Park Reserve in Wantirna South.
Well another season is upon us, with the first ball due to be bowled in three weeks time. We have seen some encouraging signs at pre-season training with some strong numbers early and some new blood, which will make competition for spots very interesting.
I am pleased to announce that Shane White will return as our Head Coach/Cricket Director for our second season in the Ferntree Gully District Cricket Association, with Craig O’Brien as our Assistant Coach. Whitey has been hard at work in the off season organising pre-season practice matches and developing a training regime that will hopefully take us up the ladder from last season!
Our first function for the season is a Grand Final BBQ and KCCC Season Launch. With the business end of the AFL Finals Series upon us and the cricket season fast approaching, it's time to all get together for a beer or two, watch the big game and kick-start KCCC's second season in the FTGDCA. The footy will be on the big screen (provided by Lights n Sights Party Hire) with drinks available at bar prices. A BBQ will also be put on, so please let Tash Webb, Linda Petrie (mum) or myself know ASAP so we can cater accordingly.
Let's all work hard on our cricket so we can have a solid season and hopefully march up the ladder. Our aim this season is finals in all grades. Anything less will be a waste, so get to training and blow out those cobwebs!
Outstanding Performances for Season 2013/14
