Carnegie celebrates record breaking Premiership Haul

Carnegie Cricket Club is celebrating after landing a record 5 senior Premierships in the 2018/19 season.

The club won Premierships in Cricket Southern Bayside (CSB) Women’s Division 1 and Men’s Division 3 and 4 before adding the  Mercantile Cricket Association (MCA) C South and D Saturday Premierships last weekend. This was in addition to the White Ball Premiership in CSB Division 3 earlier this year.

The club also had losing Grand Finalists in MCA D Sunday, and were finalists in the CSB Championship and MCA A Sunday Division.

5 Premierships is a new record for Carnegie, a club which has existed since 1906.


The Carnegie Second XI celebrate the 2019-19 CSB Division 3 Premiership.

Quotes attributable to Pat O’Shannessy, President.

“It’s been a remarkable season for this famous club. It’s the result of many hours of hard work on and off the field.”

“We’re growing each year. Fielding 8 senior teams is a massive achievement in itself, and to have all of them make finals and 5 of them win Premierships is unbelievable. We think it could be a record for any community cricket club.”

Quotes attributable to Ajay Bhatt, Head Coach.

“The first thing that struck me when I came to the club was the commitment and drive from everyone to improve and compete at every level. They were open to try new things that can help them be better. Its hard to find that attitude in players at club level”

“I’ve played cricket for over 20 years, and I can’t remember anything like the season we’ve had at Carnegie”

Quotes attributable to Penny Callaghan, Women’s Captain and Junior Coordinator .

“At the start of the season we didn’t even have a women’s team, to end it as Premiers was something really special. There is a great spirit at this club and we’re so proud of what we’ve achieved this season.”

As well as the amazing year for our seniors, we’ve got 13 junior teams and 4 of them got into finals with the Under 15 boys team finishing runners up and our All Girls team making finals for the 3rd straight season. Our Woolworths Cricket Blast programs are also going really well thanks to our volunteers.”

FEATURING SAM PERRY of THE GRADE CRICKETER

Join us for a celebration of the history of the Carnegie Cricket Club. Join with past and current players of the Carnegie Cricket Club to relive some of our great moments, and hear from Sam Perry – star of the Grade Cricketer TV show, podcast and book series.

“Sam Perry is a broadcaster, speaker, writer, and recovering leg-spinner.

Tiring of life as a corporate automaton, and after too many years playing cricket in suburban outposts across Australia, Sam founded The Grade Cricketer. Along with two friends, Dave Edwards and Ian Higgins, this anonymous everyman provides satirical reflections on Australian grassroots cricket, manifesting in two books, a podcast, live shows and most recently a TV production on Channel Seven.

Writing this anonymous character has permitted him to regularly accept guest spots on TV with both the BBC and ABC, as well as host events at presentation nights, award ceremonies, golf days, schools, breakfasts, lunches and dinners, as well as that heady institution: after-dinner speaking. Beyond Grade Cricketer life, Sam is also a freelance sports writer, with bylines in The Guardian, ESPN, Wisden, and FOX Sports, writing colour pieces, interviews, features, book reviews, live blogs and match reports.”*

Victorian Government Community Shade Grant

Thanks to the hard work of Marnie Harper CCC has been successful in receiving a Victorian Government Community Shade Grant. We applied for 2 collapsible marquees with walls for use at Lord reserve for Senior and Junior Cricket matches. These will keep players out of the direct sun whilst off the field and make getting changed during matches more comfortable.

Both home and away sides playing at Lord will have access to 1 marquee each. They will be easy to put up and fold away.

They will also carry the CCC logo and branding. Also as part of the grant we will also receive a bulk quantity of sun screen and other sun smart products to keep all our players safe.
