    Barclay Shield 2019/2020

    It is what it is - an unfortunate & unprecedented time Fair to say that there will always be an asterisk against the 2019/20 season for the top 3 grades - and people can 'spin it' however they wish It's the inconsistency of different competitions with different finishing dates (and not just...

    Barclay Shield 2019/2020

    Is that usual protocol ? Hosting Clubs would need time to prepare for such an event - or are we waiting for the final combatants to be determined ? Food - Drinks - Toilet Paper etc

    Who's hosting the Big Dance this season ?

    Money Shield 2019/2020

    Zerafa - 320 @ 32.00 ? Plenty of blokes with better numbers than that - Amos, Manoilovski, Rukshitha, Wright, Taylor, Jenkin Polius has to be a certainty doesn't he ? 2 x Tons and another 4 scores over 40 - Throw in 21 wickets @ 15.00 Mill Park - Williams 27 @ 17 Elth/Research - Sassella 23@...

    Money Shield 18/19

    What's the alternative for blokes who are 1st XI cricketers that can't commit to the majority of the season ? There are plenty of decent cricketers lost to the game because their competitive juices aren't quenched in a lower grade Then there are the ones that play a lower grade and get 'caned'...

    2014/2015 Barclay Shield

    "Improvise, Adapt & Overcome" - Gunnery Sergeant Thomas Highway from Heartbreak Ridge. Cricket is a game of Skill & Patience. If there are negative tactics with the ball (like bowling wide with a 7-2 field) - you can either try and pierce the gaps, hit over the top or play across the line. Or...

    Dvca - Finals 2014/2015

    Dvca - Finals 2014/2015

    Word has it that the Macleod supporters behaviour on Saturday at Mill Park was well below par after copious amounts of alcohol were consumed. Apparently one of their players had to come to the boundary to tell them to pull their heads in halfway through Whittlesea's 11 overs. One particular tall...

    Dvca - Finals 2014/2015

    Absolutely - certainly not Rosanna's fault they beat the top side to advance. Lower Eltham can feel however they want !

    2014/2015 Barclay Shield

    I don't think Footy Clubs will take liberties of one week - the AFL season will revert back to normal without the Cricket World Cup next season and the AFL Grand Final will be on the last Saturday in September. In regard to the "Compromised" draw - I only mean it as the 'luck of the draw' each...

    2014/2015 Barclay Shield

    Not always ideal - and maybe not covenient for all grades - but you can always throw in a Sunday ! Otherwise, 8 x two-day games and 3 x one-day games (making a 19 game day fixture rather than the stock-standard 20) could be an option. The draw is already compromised with who you play in the two...

    2014/2015 Barclay Shield

    The BHRDCA require a permit to drop players after Round 8 - in the hope of preventing clubs from stacking sides whether it be to play finals or avoid relegation. A permit committee adjudicates on the Thursday selection night whether to grant or pogo each permit on each individuals performances...

    New Dvca Grading Structure

    My thoughts Barclay Shield stays as a 12 team, top grade competition. This is the elite grade of the association and should stay untouched. Money Shield and "3/C" grade have 8 teams each that play eachother in the 7 x 2 day / 7 x 1 day format. Each team gets a home, and an away game against...
