Awards Presentation

Past Players Day & Official Opening of Koornang Park Pavilion

On Saturday, 26th of February 2022, Carnegie Cricket Club took a formal opportunity to officially open the newly renovated Koornang Park Pavilion in person with special guests from City of Glen Eira Mayor Cr J Magee, councillors M Esakoff, A Cade, MLA Steve Dimopoulos and MHR Katie Allen to cut the ribbon and declare the rooms open. Carnegie Cricket Club saw the milestone effort in conjunction with the generous funding from the Victorian State Government, with MLA Steve Dimopoulos assisting greatly with funding for the Koornang Park renovation and funding for the new Lord Reserve Pavilion. The City of Glen Eira funded the substantial balance. Steve Dimopoulos also assisted Carnegie Cricket Club with funding the electronic scoreboard at Koornang Park with the Caulfield Bears Junior Football Club and Caulfield Bears Football Netball Club. There was also substantial funding for the previous upgrade of the change rooms to make the bathroom facilities female friendly.

With the assistance of a grant by the Australian Federal Government, then local federal MHR for Higgins, Kelly O’Dwyer, solar panels were fitted to the roof in 2018. Most recently, local federal MHR Katie Allen assisted with grants to enable the City of Glen Eira to increase and improve the training nets facilities.

During the day was our past players day, which has been 2 years since we have been able to hold the event due to covid. Former Club President, Pat O’Shannessy, was a driving force behind making the day and night a big success. It was a big turnout from players and supporters, past and present, and we were able to unveil our new club honour boards thanks to the generous bequest of the late club legend, Ron Cusack. Our new honour boards include our Women’s champion player award. Special mention goes to Ron’s son, Ross, and grandson, Andrew, who attended the day and were able to capture the moment along with players from Ron’s premiership teams. We would also like to thank Louise Nelson, who attended the opening on behalf of the Caulfield Bears Junior Football Club. The highlight of the evening was guest speaker, Ros Batson, who is past player of the inaugural CSBW Carnegie Women’s team, current Cricket Southern Bayside Board Member and Chair of the All Girls Cricket Competition. Ros also coaches the combined Washington Park/Carnegie 17 & Under girls team who play finals this week. Thank you to all who support Carnegie Cricket Club.

Thank you to all who support Carnegie Cricket Club.

Vale Tim Dodgson

Carnegie Cricket Club is deeply saddened with the passing of Former Head Senior Coach, 2nd XI Premiership player, 3rd XI Captain, Committee Member, Chairman of Selectors, Head of Recruitment and Team Mate – Tim Dodgson.
Tim came to our club in 2012/13 Season as a Head Senior Coach. It didn’t take long before he stood on people’s toes, told things how they were, and ruffled a few feathers. But Tim immediately infiltrated our hearts and became a close friend to many here, and continued to do so over the years. His personality and character was one of a kind, he drew people together and introduced groups of friendships. Cricket was a huge part of his life, and we were blessed that Tim chose to return Carnegie Cricket Club when he shifted to Murrumbeena. His input into our Junior Development Team will no doubt pave the way for current and future Carnegie Cricket Club Juniors to move forward in their cricketing careers for years to come.
We are all going to miss taking the field in the future without standing next to him in the slips or watching him playing cut shots to every type of delivery. All Carnegie Cricket Club Teams will move heaven and earth together to take home the Premierships in Tim’s Honour.
Off field Tim was larger than life and he was always around to offer advice or have a drink and a laugh at the bar.
Tim has been taken far too soon, everybody will miss Tim. The whole Cricket Club is still devastated with the news of his passing. Tim will forever be in the hearts of Carnegie Cricket Club.
Our thoughts are also with Danni, Molly, Zac and Lily. The club will be there for all of you.
Rest In Peace, Tim Dodgson, You will be sadly missed. 🕊

On To 2021

We would like to thank those who were able to attend our Seniors presentation night recently held at bad Shepherd from last season which was a good to finally get some closure the 2019/20 season. Well done to all our award winners on a stellar season with either the bat or ball.

We would also like to thank all parents & carers of junior players, junior players, senior men & women players, spectators, sponsors and all our past players for being patient with us as our season is unrolling before us.

We have had many hurdles to overcome this season in regards to covid 19, our rooms currently under construction/renovation and operating out of portable sheds. While things are a little crazy at times the committee & club officials are trying their best to make Koornang Park & Lord Reserve as homely as we can on both Saturdays and Sundays until works are completed. We have recently updated the software on the scoreboard and can now stream BBL and test cricket so keep your ears peeled on when games will be streamed on the scoreboard.

Things to come in the new year will be our Major Raffle, which was postponed last season, with a new date to be confirmed shortly. Another round of Carnegie lotto will be held soon, due to popular demand, after the first round before Christmas. Our other major function, the Trivia Night is in negotiations with council about an offsite premise for us to host our fun night for all.

Key Dates for returning for the weeks of training (please attend on your regular day of training):
SENIOR WOMEN 12 JAN
SENIOR MEN 5 JAN
ISEC JNR. 25 JAN
SECA JNR. 11 JAN
CRICKET BLAST 5 FEB

Whilst many of us will be enjoying some rest and relaxation, many Carnegie junior players will be playing representative cricket and we wish them all the best for their respective tournaments.

Carnegie Cricket Club would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a safe new year and hope you all are spending it with someone you love. We all look forward to seeing you healthy and fit in January.
