    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Because the 'ideal' number, which has been spoken about often at high end DVCA talks, is 32, but then they would have to bite the bullet and reduce Barclay by 3 teams in 1 season, and we all know how well that was received when the ill-fated NCL was muted in years gone by, Ideal to have 4x8...

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Why wouldn't you just keep DC 2's or ask Epping 2's to come up in to Mash for a season. I am sure either of those clubs, or others would see it as a challenge and an opportunity.

    Mash Shield 2019/2020

    Surely doing things for the betterment of ALL clubs would be an ideal situation, and not just for the elitists of the competition.

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Sure that at a meeting at the start of last year, when Bundoora Park were voted in, that the DVCA Exec stated that 32 sides (4x8) was the ideal model. Wonder what has happened in 12 months, or is it just a case of 'well at the moment, these are the rules'.....

    Dvca - Competition Restructure

    The 2 up / 2 down should be brought in across all grades from this season. I do understand that the ultimate prize of a premiership is what is strived for, but that is decided on 1 game. And if a side is dominant throughout the season, wins a Semi-Final and then has 1 bad day, they should still...

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    It's not about excitement, it's about giving the side that has not been good enough to bat the 80 overs an advantage by making the openers have to rush off and try and prepare as best they can in a very short time frame.

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Thoughts please.... Change of innings MUST extend from 10-20 mins. It’s too much of a rush on the team having to come in having bowled the other side out - what's the feel around this.....

    Dvca - How Do We Make It Better?

    Lower grades - all 3rd XI teams down, should play 70 over one day games - start at 12.30pm, finish at 5, get back to the 1's or 2's and the young kids can see them in action. Gives a chance for at least 6 bowlers per game (max 6 per bowler), and allow for batsmen to have (potentially) 20 hits...

    Barclay Shield 2017/18

    Calm down Tongs, I can’t take the credit. I simply C&P an email from the comp, but would have thought they could have done the same. And the chair is a big one, but not sure it’s big enough for him....

    Barclay Shield 2017/18

    Wouldn't it be great if the DVCA had a website (or social media site) and they posted something like this so we all knew what was going on. With the weather interrupting play on Saturday the below is a summary of where all games currently sit as per rule S8: Barclay Shield: Riverside v Macleod...

    Player Movements & Rumours 2016/17

    School funded the new fence 100%, and did not ask for any funding, or guarantee from either the football club or cricket club = handout

    Player Movements & Rumours 2016/17

    It is admirable, but they were more than happy to take the handouts off the school when it came to a new ground, new rooms, new pitch, new fence, surely it was always the end plan for the school to take control....if you take enough off someone, then you ultimately become them.

    2016/2017 Money Shield

    Nick wasn't coach this year, so that search is null and void. Nick has been a brilliant servant for our club. To come across and have an immediate impact on the playing group taking us to a Money Shield Premiership, only the second 1st XI flag of our club, was nothing short of outstanding, and...

    2016/2017 Barclay Shield

    Email was sent to all clubs on 19 July 2016 advising them that the DVCA Senior Presentation night would be held at Greensborough RSL on Friday 31 March. Enough notice I would have thought.

    2016/2017 Barclay Shield

    Questions that have come from an amazing GF. 1. Has a Barclay premier ever had a worse form line going in to a finals series to win the flag? 1 win after Xmas, bowled out for 98 and 35 in games just before finals. Goes to show, doesn't matter how you get there, anything can happen in finals. 2...
