Both First XI and the Sunday A Grade win flags

The CCC first XI won their first premiership since 1996/97 this past weekend in the CSB Div 1. This was the 3rd attempt at the 2 day final and the win was completed in style bowling out Brighton District for 71 on day one and passing them prior to stumps on day one. We then returned the following day and batted really well to get to 5 for 157 before Brighton called stumps. Man of the match and club coach Vinay Tripathi with 2 wickets and 46 N/O. The support at the ground both days was tremendous. A great all round performance with the ball and bat, wickets and runs evenly shared across the team. Also thanks to McKinnon CC for hosting the match and doing a fine job.

The Sunday A grade also joined the party late on Sunday as they defeated the Melbourne Cobras in the A-Sunday GF for the 2nd year in a row to go back to back. Batting first at Koornang Park we made 194 off our 45 overs (G Takkiar 69) and then bundled the Cobra’s out for 100. Man of the match Anil Malik with 5/45 (for the second week in row) did the damage with the ball. Again this was also in front of a very large crowd of around 200 very happy supporters.

More reports from the matches to come.

Steve Yeats Retirement Match This Sunday 26th of Feb 12.30pm

Time has come for the great Steve Yeats to hang up the boots, well what can i say…it’s not hard there is plenty to say about the man.

Steve will play his 429th game for Carnegie Cricket Club, what an achievement. This has taken 30 years, and numerous rounds being washed out in the old days before covers.

Steve’s career has been both on-field and off-field.

Off-field: Steve was president of the club, life member, served many years as a committee member, cricket committee member, VTCA club delegate, chairman of selectors, player liaison, club ambassador and numerous other appointments. Has been a regular at all club functions for 30 years and still is a regular around training and all the big matches that CCC plays in. Steve has always put the club first and this is another asset Steve is respected for.

On-Field: Steve has captained numerous sides within the club, 2nds, 3rd’s, 4th’s, 7th’s. Most likely was most older current and ex players first 3rd XI Skipper as Steve had that job for many seasons. Mainly a bowler through his career he has taken over 500 wickets and later in his career hit a purple patch with the bat, whilst never at all-rounder status Steve did start to open the batting a few years back. Numerous bowling awards he has won again too many to mention, Steve was known for bowling long spells and getting the extra bounce that his extra height provided. Steve is well known through out both the VTCA (VJCA) and the MCA competitions where he has played most of his cricket.

As a mate: I think most that have played at Carnegie in the past 30 years would class Steve as a mate, mentor, good bloke and always keen for a beer and a chat. In the old days numerous committee’s were also kept on edge wanting to know if he was going to get a ticket running at an AGM and have anther go as president. You could never call Steve a sheep on club matters and he always had his own view on things, another one of the many great things about the man.

Steve will be missed on field but i’m sure off field he will still be as active as ever seeing his beloved club strive for on-field success and continue to grow. At “62 years young” as he say’s i’m sure there will also be some time away from cricket on those hot Melbourne weekends.


As most would be aware by now Steve’s last game is this Sunday the 26th of Feb starting at 12.30pm at Koornang Park. The club are making a day of it and there will be music, Roast Spit and many photo’s to be taken with this great Legend of the Club.

There were so many things that i could have further added and no doubt numerous great things that Steve has achieved that i haven’t mentioned but hopefully this gives everybody a little bit of an extra insight into Steve.

CCC 1st One Day GF this Sunday the 5th of Feb from 1pm


The Carnegie CC Saturday First XI have made the CSB Division 1 one day grand final, this will be held this Sunday at Carnegie’s main ground Koornang Park @ 1pm vs Brighton District CC. The CSB comp was set up this season by Cricket Victoria and all the VTCA southern teams moved into the new comp. The comp very much follows the District cricket structures. So this year for the first time we have played a white ball competition within the normal 2 day red ball competition with all the points counting towards the 2 day ladder but also counting towards a white ball ladder. The white ball games were a mix of one day matches and 20/20 matches and was really enjoyed by all the players. Currently the first XI are on top of the ladder in both 2 day and 1 day ladders and have made it so far through to the white ball grand final.


The grand final is this weekend with some serious talent from both home and overseas to be on show in both teams. The last match between the 2 teams was a 20/20 match 2 weeks ago that came down to the last over with Carnegie winning in a close one.

The match is 40 overs per side kicking off at 1pm, the match is played in coloured clothing with a white ball. There are over restrictions, fielding restrictions and a reduced ground size as per district rules.

The club will also have the famous Stuart Easton roast spit running during the day with Lamb, Chicken and beef available. The rolls are $6.00 each. The bar and kiosk will also be open. The club will also have music playing during the intervals and some milo and T-20 blast action happening in the main break. It will be a family friendly atmosphere and plenty of Carnegie juniors will be around.

Make sure we get a big crowd down to support the boys as they play in our 3rd first XI GF attempt in 7 years and attempt to win our first 1st XI premiership in 20 years.

Vale Jarrod Maginness

It is with much sadness that we inform you of the sudden and unexpected passing away of Jarrod Maginness. Jarrod passed away on Wednesday 23rd November and we learnt of the sad news over the weekend. Jarrod first played with Carnegie in 2011 and was always keen to put his hand up and play for our club. Along with his good efforts on the park he will be best remembered for being great for a chat and socialising with his fellow club members. In the past 2 seasons he was not able to play as often but still dropped by to catch up with the comings and goings of the club.

His passing was very sudden as he was in good health and his family is devastated. He is survived by his daughter, Chloe, who is going to secondary college next year. Jarrod’s twin sister has started a go fund me page to assist with the costs of attending:

Our deepest sympathies and condolences go out to Jarrod’s family at this time. As a tribute, all senior players will wear black arm bands this weekend.
For those who can attend the funeral, it will be held on Friday 2nd December, 2.30PM, please contact the club for details.
