Barclay Shield 2019/2020

6 senior teams. All played finals. 4 of which 4 ended up on top. 3 senior flags.
Largest Milo Cricket program in the area.
10 junior teams.
2 vets team.
Consistently having over half teams play finals.
And my lips did't even move!!! Part of my criteria is on field but a major portion is off field. They have a huge junior program in an area that surrounding clubs cant make a go of. They have mainly home grown in their sides and promote the kids through the ranks. Well led by HT they have it all covered. They look to the future of their club as well as being competitive on field that is a difficult mix.

That’s a pretty damn good club there.
Only missing the women’s team.
 
For the past couple of years I've been shocked hearing stories about how much clubs are paying some players/group of players. In saying that, if the club can afford it and it's not breaking the bank, then good luck to them. Only need to look at what has happened to Lower Plenty to see how bad it can get if it gets out of hand though. I won't name any names though but I have been told enough to back up my thinking that this virus will change the way clubs have to operate with payment of players.

Diamo won't have any issue finding a coach you'd think.
Which clubs are you referring to?

Enough of banyule talk it makes my blood boil, they drink their own bath water probably why their twos have lost 3 flags in a row.
Good observation. 2’s lost their D grade grand final in 18/19 but their 3’s won it this year. If the 2’s had of got the job done on the last day then they would have been Barclay, B & C. Not to be. I reckon they would be glad to see it make someone’s blood boil, envious watching them whilst you’re on cricket trip.

I’m certainly not envious when I heard they held a full blown medal ceremony and shield presentation after a drawn Grand Final

Rumour is fact that the team that was out for 78 had individual pictures with players having their premiership medals around their necks having their finger pointing upwards inferring they were No. 1.

You’d have to be eating sour grapes if you wouldn’t accept a Premiership Medal after finishing on top of the ladder, rolling a team for 78 being 2/50 and a promotion to Barclay. I wouldn’t be let a technicality stop me from celebrating personally. If that’s the way you feel about Banyule, I’d hate to hear what your thoughts are on the Stars..
Also their other 2 premiership winning teams were not awarded their medals because they had not arrived yet hence the presentation.
