Welcome to the 2017/18 cricket season and how fortunate we were to play all our games last weekend with none of the usual October rains spoiling our fun. This season Malvern Junior Cricket Club is fielding 20 teams in the ISEC Under 11, Under 13, Under 15 and Under 17 age groups playing across Friday night, Saturday and Sunday mornings.

We have almost 230 players registered for our under age teams and currently our Friday night and Saturday morning Pathways Programme has over 30 players registered. Our Pathways Programme kicks off this weekend and for those wishing to register, please go to our website 

In addition, we have our Sunday Colts team that also commenced last weekend, boasting 5 father/son combinations. We are regularly in need of additional players so if this is of interest, please contact Richard Anderson on

We hope everyone enjoyed their opening weekend of cricket and can continue to support their team by being involved and contributing to a great cricket experience.


It costs a lot of money to run our club and field 20 teams week in, week out. We would like to extend our deepest thanks to our sponsors and ask MJCC members support our sponsors when shopping in and around our local community. A big MJCC welcome to Pizza Religion ( who will be our match day food voucher sponsor for the 2017/18 season. Pizza Religion $22 Pizza Cards will be issued as a player award across all teams every week of the season. Pizza Religion’s Malvern store is right near Malvern Railway station and they also have outlets in Elsternwick, Prahran, Geelong and Hawthorn.

Last week Stonnington City Council approved the construction of a new cricket net facility at Sir Robert Menzies Reserve in Malvern. This is great news and comes after over 2 years of discussions and consultation. The nets will not only offer some much-need additional MJCC training solutions, but also a public net facility that can be utilised 7 days a week by the local community. Thank you to all those who participated in the recent public consultation process which delivered a 95% approval rating and played a major role in getting the proposal over the line. Further details regarding final design and timings will be advised in due course.

As a community club, it is important that we continue to develop a strong cricket culture that supports our club identity. In recent seasons, the club has developed a training uniform to support that identity and it is the Committee and Coaching Team’s expectation that our players are attired in the club’s training shirt and shorts at all training sessions. Players need to ensure that they are organised to change out of school uniforms and school sport clothing and be ready to train at the allotted time.

The Sutherland name is well entrenched at MJCC with both Annabelle and Tom working their way through all our under age teams over the past 5-6 years. We would like to extend our congratulations to their older brother Will Sutherland who this week made his first class debut for Victoria. Will’s formative cricket years were spent in our Milo “Have a Go” and Milo “Have a Game” programmes back in 2006 and 2007. Clearly the Malvern Milo cricket introduction helped set up Will’s base skills for his burgeoning cricket career. Good luck Will.
