No merger with East Keilor. Not surprised about Avondale not being around. My club played them in 3 different grades & from what l saw they were as unprofessional as they get on & off the field with too much left to too few. When wickets aren't up to scratch on a regular basis, players at North A level leaving after they have their bat indicated there was little care level.
Very little after match interaction with the opposition.
When I started at my club, Avondale Heights was a very vibrant club, whereas now whether you have won or lost, leaves one wondering what went wrong.
Ultimately, not enough people cared enough to put in the work & I for my experiences & dealings with them am not sorry to see them go. Sorry for the few people that have put in the work, but not for the club as a whole.
